The story about the tour
The must-sees of Stockholm you ask? We’ll show them to you! It’s no secret that the Old Town and the Vasa Museum are two of the top attractions in Stockholm, but how you experience them, that’s a little different! On our Stockholm’s Old Town & Vasa Museum Private Walking Tour, we check out the hidden gems of these city favourites, all in one go.
We’ll start in the oldest part of Stockholm, the Old Town, where once upon a time a city was founded, in 1252 to be exact. Follow your private guide through the narrow streets and over the cobblestone paths to discover the Royal Palace, the Stockholm Cathedral and of course the main square Stortorget with its colourful buildings, frequently seen on Instagram. Once you’ve scouted all the must-see spots, jump on board one of the public ferries take you across the harbour to the island of Djurgården. One of the most awe-striking attractions on this island is the Vasa Museum.
Arriving at the Vasa Museum, skip the line and enter directly inside to see the giant warship that has made it into history books – it will be no surprise why! With your guide, learn all about the most well-preserved ship in the whole wide world, the Vasa, including when she was built, why she sank and how she was salvaged.
On this all-in-one walking tour, you will see Stockholm from the water – a sight for sore eyes – and visit not one but two islands in the inner-city. We typically end this tour inside the Vasa Museum after a short guided tour so you may continue to enjoy the many great exhibits. After all, we recommend you stay on the island and visit neighbouring museums – you’ll be glad you did!
Please note: The majority of this tour takes place in areas where you will have to walk on cobblestones. We suggest wearing comfortable shoes.
