Take a moment and look out over the canals whenever you can. These canals are The Baltic Sea … and it is clean, crisp, swimmable water … not your usual city water scape

If you buy the Stockholm City Card, one boat tour is included in the price, so definitely take advantage of that. We saw the canals from the water, and had a delightful time. Stockholm is just absolutely beautiful.

the log homes along the canal tied American log home history to a more distant past; the canals were clean; great place for photos; easy to walk along and see or stop as needed.

Took a 50 minute tour, one of the shorter tours, but well worth it. A map was proved for each row of 4 seats and headphones for each seat from which you could choose from multiple languages, a description of the tour as you are on it. Fun boat ride. There were refreshments for money that could be ordered, but... More

Touring the canals in a boat was a spectacular way to view the city. So much to see, so much history! The guided tour was so informative and helpful. I learned more than I expected to about this city, its history, and its charm. Makes you fall even more in love with Stockholm!

The boat tours however are not that cheap for what... More

The Canal Tours is a must for the tour in Stockholm. Learn how a group of islands became the powerful and nice are to live is worth to know. The tour last almost 2 hrs. I love the fact that is translated in more that 8 languages. Also the floodgate (lock) in use around the main city protecting the currents... More

This was included in our Stockholm Pass, and is a great way to get photos of Stockholm from the water. There are headsets to hear the commentary and there is a small snack bar on board.
