    Pickup details
    • Pick up at all hotels, hostels and other accomodations in central Stockholm within 3km from Stockholm central station. Also the harbours of Frihamnen, Stadsgården and Värtahamnen (not Nynäshamn harbour, if you enter here wait for meeting instructions to a place in Stockholm city). Points of interest as well. If your tour departs from the cruise pier: If your ship arrives at S165 and S167 STADSGÅRDEN: Please walk a few hundred meters away from your ship while following the BLUE/GREEN lines. Go past the fences and guards, and your guide will wait there, with a sign saying "Viking Tours" on an A4-paper.  NOTE: If you enter any other harbour number in STADSGÅRDEN than S165 or S167 please go outside the fences and guards and the guide will meet you there on the time of the tour. If your ship arrives at F638 FRIHAMNEN: Upon debarking the ship, please go through the terminal building. Once you go past the sliding doors (everyone else that departs the ship will walk out this way), the guide will meet you just outside the sliding doors. The guide will be holding an A4-paper saying "Viking Tours". NOTE: If you enter any other harbour number in FRIHAMNEN than F638 please go outside the fences and guards and the guide will meet you there on the time of the tour. If your ship arrives at V523 VÄRTAHAMNEN: Walk from your ship towards the tourist buses, which is less than 10 meters from the ship hull. The guide will wait for you at the tourist bus area, near the buses, with an A4-paper, which says "Viking Tours." The guide will then direct you to the tour vehicle. NOTE: If you enter any other harbour number in VÄRTAHAMNEN than V523 please go outside the fences and guards and the guide will meet you there on the time of the tour. If your Ship Arrives at NYNÄSHAMN: NO PICK UP INCLUDED HERE. That due to it being 50km away from Stockholm central station. We recomend you to contact and with us decide a meeting place in Central Stockholm. We will give directions how to go there either by train or that take one of the cruise busses going from the harbour into Stockholm. If you are unsure of which pier your ship is arriving at, please check with the cruise line.

          Viking Tour
          Gabriel had extensive knowledge and made the whole trip interesting. Scenery was beautiful and people on tour very nice. In Uppsala the snow was thick so we sunk in it which made us laugh.

          Great tour with our guide, Gabriel!
          I booked this tour as a fun surprise for my husband, who loves vikings, and we were not disappointed! Our guide, Gabriel, was absolutely wonderful and so knowledgable. He tailored the tour to our interests, and we had a great day with him. All of the stops were very interesting, and even in the winter, very beautiful. If you are interested in viking history, this tour is perfect!

          An area rich in history!
          We took a day trip from Stockholm, and truly enjoyed seeing a different part of the country. The train ride was lovely, and navigating around the town was easy. The University, Cathedral, and Museum were all very interesting. Walking around the burial mounds in learning more about the history of the area was wonderful

          Look elsewhere for more professional companies.
          Just straight up stood us up. No warning, cancellation…anything. Waited 30 minutes in the cold. They claimed they “forgot.” Yes they refunded us but it killed an evening in Stockholm we had reserved for this. Look elsewhere for more professional companies.

          Brilliant!
          This is one of the best historical tours I've taken in my 5 weeks touring Europe. Our guide Calle answered all our questions. He was helpful, very friendly, knowledgeable and professional from start to finish. It was a long day but his enthusiasm never waned. It was so worth it and I highly recommend this for anyone who wants to know more about the Vikings.

          Great Stockholm tour with historical aspects
          The tour guide was great. We have learned so many things about Stockholmm and saw places we would have never seen as tourists alone. We enjoyed Jonathans historical overview. Definitely recommend!

          Excellent Tour, Easy to Plan
          A large part of what I do for work (I'm a personal assistant) is make travel arrangements. The couple I work for LOVED their private Viking History tour and raved about their wonderful guide, Asa Ovrelid. She was incredibly knowledgeable and delightful to be around and it was a highlight of their trip. I arranged everything via email with Jonathan - he was responsive, easy to work with, answered my ten bajillion questions, and best of all, everything went exactly as scheduled. Five stars!!

          The Perfect Viking/Stockholm Excursion
          Perfect half-day tour if you are in Stockholm. Our tour guide, Karl Gustaf, was extremely knowledgeable and informative about Viking and Swedish history and about Sweden in general. The length of the tour was perfect too, especially in the winter months and we returned to our hostel right as the sun was setting. The tour never felt rushed, the restaurant selection was excellent, and the driving accommodations were very comfortable. The key element of this trip was undoubtedly Karl Gustaf and his knowledges of Sweden and its history! I’m excited for all those who have the pleasure of experiencing this tour in the future!

          a good choice
          very interesting to do as first activity, in order to enter Swedish culture and history. Well designed also the program, with the right balance of the stops during the day. We ha an excellent assistant, Bianca, who drove us all day making us feel in a friend's car. Also Gabriel the guide was very interesting and never boring in his descriptions. I recommend this tour.

          Nice Viking history.
          Friendly, knowledgeable guide and the Rune stones and their story made the trip for me, sigtuna was nice for the history but otherwise underwhelming. The Viking story was good but hard to relate it to any specific sites. Nevertheless a good all around history tour.

          Good enjoyable tour with an engaging guide
          A really enjoyable tour. Calle went out of his way to show us the main sights and was very well informed and interesting. He also dropped us at a nice restaurant after the tour.

          Great time learning Viking history!
          Had an awesome time! Gabriel was an excellent and knowledgeable tour guide, and it was great to learn so much about Viking history. One note for the tour company—it was a little hard to hear the tour guide’s commentary in the car (I was also in the back so that could have been it), or maybe a mic issue. Also note to anyone planning to do this tour in the near future—would definitely recommend bug spray because the mosquitoes were out in force. But besides that, was an amazing experience and would recommend to anyone!

        Jonathan was our tourguide and an incredibly knowledgeable historian. He was flexible with our family and catered our tour to include sites that are interesting to our children. All in all, a very enriching and enjoyable experience.
