What people are saying about Stockholm

Bought the 72 hours pass and ideal when you make a combination of museums and boat and bus trips. The individual entrance prices are between 140 and 170 crowns per person, so you can easily get it. The ABBA museum is not included in this pass, but it does include hop-on hop-on buses, boat trip, fotografiska museum, vasa museum, Viking planet and Nobel Prize museum to name a few. We stayed there at the end of April and only some boat trips were not active yet. In short, a must if you want to save money on your discovery trip through beautiful Stockholm.

Very nice staff. Very well planed. Would highly recommend for someone who is staying in Stockholm for a few days, ticks a lot of places of the list :)

The ship left on time. Had the tour in many languages and food upstairs if you wanted to eat something.

Can recommend seeing Stockholm from the water. Good information in the guide.
