The map shows Broby in Skåne instead of Broby Bro in Täby outside of Stockholm. You will definitely not get to Skåne in 20 minutes on this tour :D

This tour was amazing!!! A definite MUST do while in Stockholm. We reached out directly to the tour company since TripAdvisor didn’t allow to book online in such short notice. Spoke to Jonathan, and he was very gracious and accommodating. He said he would reach out to tour guides to find out if someone would be available for the next day. He called back promptly after a few hours with confirmation that he found a guide for us. Åsa was the BEST guide we could have hoped for! She took us to all the main sites, gave us ample time to visit, took our photos, answered ALL our questions and was extremely knowledgeable. We were so fortunate and felt honoured she shared so much of the Viking and Swedish history with us. Thank you Åsa and Jonathan for your kindness and for making our Swedish experience unforgettable!

Thanks for this load of appreciation :-) I had quite a stressful time trying to call around until I found you a guide that could do it that date, but all turned out amazing in the end for both of us! It is reviews like these that really get your heart beat a bit faster for the work/Jonathan

I had a day tour with Calle and he gave me a really excellent tour. He really knew his stuff and was also a generally interesting person. I saw things that would have been difficult to see on my own and the museum in Sigtuna was particularly worth a visit. all in all, an excellent experience.

Guide was very knowledgeable and provided lots of fascinating information. I wanted a shorter tour that still gave me a clear understanding of the Viking era and this tour did that perfectly.

Thanks a lot Frank. I am glad you had a good time. We do all we can to get a strong variation of different Viking topics into the tour. Therefore the guests get both a broad and in-depth understanding. Best regards Angus Carlsson Sweden History Tours Time Travel Tours

Responded to our email queries promptly and we managed to find something that perfectly suited our itinerary in Stockholm.

Our guide Angus was very friendly and knowledgeable on the history of the Viking era and the runes that remain today. He was also attentive to our needs as we were travelling with an infant. The tour was just 4 persons in the car so it was an ideal size for us.

Highly recommended.

Thanks a lot David. I am sorry for answering this review so late, for a long time I got no notifications from TA. Never the less, I remember your group well than I saw your profile picture. I hope you have a great 2019. For others reading this reply: we have several infant seats and child booster seats. Just let us know the age of your kid and then it is perfectly fine to join one of the tour groups. Best regards Angus Carlsson Sweden History Tours
