As with my other review for STOEX, I once again encountered a cancellation with no explanation from this company. When the tour from my other review was canceled, I booked this one halfheartedly as the only viable substitute on Viator. Two days before I was set to leave for Stockholm, they canceled with no explanation, merely telling me they "hope I can make the [day after]." No, actually, I am flying back to another continent the day after. So, no, I can't do this tour some other day.

I have booked tours through Viator and directly with tour companies all over the world. Never have I encountered such poor customer service as STOEX. The worst part was, they didn't even issue a refund for this last-minute cancellation. I had to demand one from them, and when I still didn't get a response, I had to cancel it myself on Viator (luckily, I still had one day left to cancel on Viator for a full refund).

Never book with STOEX.
