My husband and I were delighted with this tour of Gamla Stan. If you love history take this tour. It really sets the stage for your visit to Stockholm and Sweden. Sean was our guide and he is an excellent interpreter of Swedish history, culture and every day life. It's included in the Stockholm Pass but we paid out of pocket. Very reasonable and worth every penny. TAKE THIS TOUR!! You won't regret it.
