I found this royal canal tour very Interesting, , seeing Stockholm from the water you see much more The guided commentary was very useful as well , plenty off good photo opportunities If you have a spare hour in Stockholm then this tour is worth doing

Guter Einstieg, um eine Stadt kennen zu lernen. Die Aufnahme mit verschiedenen Sprachen, die über Headset ausgewaehlt werden ist zeitlich etwas in die Jahre gekommen und gehört erneuert. Das Personal wusste noch nicht mal, das eine Übersichtskarte ausgeteilt werden muss, damit man die Nummerierung im Vortrag zuordnen kann. Schade.

Das Personal ist freundlich, das Boot legt pünktlich ab und die Zeit wird gut eingehalten, so kann man seinen Tag in Stockholm gut planen. Man umrundet die Insel Djurgarden, sehr schön und sehenswert, besonders bei schönem Wetter. Grundsätzlich ist die Tour zu empfehlen.
