The amphibus was a high point of our trip to Stockholm. We got to hear interesting facts about Sweden and Stockholm. The tour guide was entertaining with dry (Swedish?) humor. The bus also had speakers and the guide played some music according to the situation. The driver/captain also had a part of the show and made us all laugh. The bus itself was worth seeing and the feeling when we got to water was exciting. All in all a great experience to lay back and enjoy the ride with Stockholm's beautiful scenery!

such a nice tour! we learned something about the city of stockholm and went into the water, i would reccommend it to anyone! amazing experience, tour guide and bus driver were amazing!!
