Owner description: Want to try something that's interesting, fun and costs absolutely nothing? Take a free guided tour of Stockholm! The Old Town tour and the City tour both start at Sergels Torg, and the Söder tour starts at Slussen. All tours take approximately 90 minutes, and if you liked the tour, you may tip your guide. That's it! The guides live off tips, so this is the best tour in Stockholm - if it weren't they wouldn't get paid! That's why they're funny, energetic, and love to help you as much as they can. Take a free tour this week!

“Excellent free tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013 via mobile

The tours are offered as a City tour and a Tour of the old town. I did both the tours, they were well organised, easy to find in the main square (at the top of the stairs - see the website for instructions). The tour guides were both very knowledgeable and spoke English very well. Despite slightly frosty conditions, the tour was entertaining and highly recommended. As the name suggests it is a free tour, however as the guides are not paid for their time and tip is recommended.

“Great Experience in Stockholm”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013 via mobile

I am traveling with my wife and father-in-law through a Scandavian adventure and we chose to try the Free Tour of Stockholm based upon the adivce on Trip Advisor and were certainly grateful for the advice. We started with the morning tour with Jennifer, who was giving her first tour, and made our way through the highlights of Stockholm while making a few jokes as we went through town. We all enjoyed this enough to take the Old Town tour with Jessica later that night and were certainly entertained and educated. Having a guide through the maze of the old town and being told the history of Stockholm has certainly been a great experience, which I would highly recommend.

“Engaging- passionate tour guides!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

We took the City tour and the Old town tour and our guides were Pradeep and Annalie respectively.
They were both so passionate about their city and its history and had different styles/ formats of the tour so it was engaging both times!
This was the first city we did a free tour in so it set the bar pretty high, but I would reccommend free tours wherever you are. They're a great concept (tip only system), but if you get cold easily- beware! You walk for about 2 minutes and then stop for about 10 minutes so by the end of it we were pretty cold :(

This was a fabulous tour with very knowledgeable tour guides. Took us to places we would not have gone. We went on the day tour around the newer part of the city and the evening tour around Gamle Stan. recommend both highly

“Highly recommended!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

I joined the City Tour and the Old CIty Tour on Jan 27th. Kevin is a fabulous story-teller, despite the freezing cold and the icing wind he kept us awaken and curious till the end of the tours with his stories about Stockholm and its inhabitants (from King Gustav to the Abba), told with a very pleasant sense of humour! Highly recommended!!!!
