What people are saying about Stockholm

Amazing tour! We didn’t expect the tour to be this good. We learned a lot about the history and the stories. Calvin kept us entertained and spoke very loud and clearly especially at times the city was noisy. It was helpful since there were about 40 of us. Very happy to have found this tour! I highly recommend it!

Magnifique visite, la plus belle vue de la ville avec des commentaires vraiment utiles et disponibles dans un grand nombre de langue. Nous recommandons vivement une visite en bateau qui, en 1h, permet de connaitre beaucoup sur la ville.

I really enjoyed the Abba museum. It was very easy to access my ticket and lots of fun. Great if you are an Abba fan or not

A must for any ABBA fan, really interesting and good fun as well.

Tha captain and the tourist guide are so wonderful
