The tour with Dara as our guide was fantastic. She explained so many details, about the market halls and the typical Swedish tastings. And Dara also explained a lot about the history of Stockholm and Sweden as well as the buildings and sights along the way. Just great what Dara knew.

Was a great tour all round. Super warm team and a consistently good-humoured tour guide. Saw a lot of the city and had a nice "fika" in the kayaks. Only a second pair of gloves would have been good, as they got wet and therefore very cold towards the end.

This was such an enjoyable tour! Fritz was an excellent guide. Very engaging and personable. We loved every bit of the walking, eating, and information given. Would highly recommend this experience.

Very nice tour through the most importar sites of the city , we had been really lucky because our guide was Italian so we really enjoy it !

We saw a lot of mooses, the food was great and everything was just right. The price is a bit expensive
