Samuel was our young college tour guide. He spoke excellent English, was well educated on the history and myths, and just a pleasure. (A woman came begging for money during his lecture and he was so kind to her...anyone else would have been rude...but she left). Informed the group of 13 where amenities were, ferry or tram schedules and answered... More

Great Guide . Saw the real town. Back streets and all. Walked forever. Learned all about the city and its people. Got information that I never Knew including that Stockholm is where most of the Nobel awards are given. One of the best tours ever.

My tour of historical Stockholm was fantastic. My guide was extremely knowledgeable and was obviously passionate about his city. He took us off the obvious tourist trail and we saw sights only a local would know exists. It was an easy walk and as it was private we could tailor it to our needs. I'd recommend this to anyone.

We booked this tour through Viator. My wife and I were the ony ones signed up for the afternoon walking tour. Our guide Anna was very good. She provided a good review of Sweden's history including the establishment of the annual Nobel awards. The tour took us throughout Old Town (including the Candy Cane store) as well as the Island...

Our tour guide, Pontus, was prompt, very knowledgable, friendly, and had a good sense of humor. His English was perfect (of course -- as goes for most Swedes.) It was great fun learning about the history of Gamla Stan; things you don't read in the tour guides. And, the private tour of the Vassa museum was worth the price of... More

We had a well-organized, informative, and pleasant tour of Stockholm where we learned a lot about the sites and history. It was a bit more difficult to get a good understanding of Swedish life and culture because our guide had recently moved to Sweden from her hometown of Orlando, Florida. The tour was also quite pricey compared to the other... More

Thanks to Pontus, I had a lovely time taking part in a walking tour starting at 2pm. There were just 3 other people taking part so we were quite lucky, it really felt like a private intimate tour. You could ask anything about Stockholm and Sweden even if it wasn't about Gamla Stan (Oldtown). Pontus told us fun facts and... More

Alain was a terrific guide, knowledgeable and friendly. We saw a lot of Stockholm in 3 hours. There were a couple of short, strenuous hills, otherwise easy cycling. Highly recommend.

Staying in Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen

Neighborhood Profile
Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen
Gamla Stan is Stockholm’s historic old town and home to the Swedish Royal Palace. It’s the most central island of Stockholm and accompanied by the small island of Riddarholmen, mainly known for its famous Riddarholm Church. Gamla Stan tends to be a bit touristy at times but is definitely worth visiting: take a stroll past the well-preserved buildings and through the small (and also Sweden’s narrowest) alleys, which will make you feel like you’ve travelled back in time. This neighborhood offers a great combination of historical buildings and traditional Swedish restaurants.
