Owner description: Leaving the inner city behind, we'll pass beautiful and famous buildings as we enter the peaceful Djurgarden canal. On the canal we will pass several historical buildings, museums and beautiful green areas. When we head home, a fabulous view of the Stockholm skyline opens up - only to be seen from the water! The tour is guided in 11 languages. On board we have crayons and paper for the kids.

The Royal Canal Tour departs from Stromkajen opposite the Grand Hotel. It costs Sek 165 & takes 50mins. I found the tour to be interesting especially passing the beautiful island of Djurgården, Skeppsholmen & the Old Town (Gamla Stan), . There are many wonderful wooden waterfront homes to view along the way.

After passing the island the tour returns towards the city and passes Fjaderholmarna, Prince Eugen's Waldemarsudde, the Vasa Museum, Sodermalm and Slussen.

The boat is undercover so its great if its a rainy day.

The tour provides tape guides in 11 different languages with a map. There is a cafe and toliets on board.The Canal tour starts between 10:30am and 7:30pm during the summer.

We went on this tour because it was a grey day and had an hour to kill. The price is high, but free if you have the Stockholm card. The tour takes you around Djurgarden and Skeppsholmen with views of Grona Lund, Sodermalm and Gamla Stan. You also see the berths of cruise ships and merchant vessels (plus some military). Not terribly exciting, but comfortable and pleasant.

TIP: To get the best views, sit on the right side of the boat.

On our last morning in Stockholm we saw the very first moving boat on the canal. The canal had obviously thawed enough that this tourist attraction awoke from its Winter slumber. The sun was shining and the queue wasn't too bad so we decided to take the tour and enjoy Stockholm from a different vantage point and learn some of the history. It was a very expensive @ 160SEK each and lasted 50 minutes. The fact that some of the areas were still frozen and the boat could not enter was understandable but the fact that the areas they took us to had nothing significant to talk about was unacceptable. There were long periods of the tour that had no commentary even when we were passing 'things' worth commenting on. The most commentary related to the fact that their coffee shop was open ( grrrr) . The fact that the commentary is pre recorded in manta languages becomes a barrier, but advocate commentary would have been appreciated given most of the developed works speaks English.

I wouldn't do this trip again!
