What people are saying about Stockholm

Our Guide ( the charming scottsman, forgot his name) was great. We needed a while to get used to his kinda special way of speaking. But after that it was a blast. Especially for the kids that were there (they have to be old enough for quite gory stories though). Lots of audience participation and joking around. you really got the impression that he likes his role as mysterious storyteller, so the time with him just flies while exploring this beautiful old town.

An amazing day - more than we could have expected, we had such a great time as a couple on a private ice skating tour of one of the frozen lakes north of Stockholm. Highly recommended

Really enjoyed this museum, the ride at the end tells a really interesting story and it was a great day out

Great tour showing us the various sights of Oslo. Extremely knowledgeable guide.

Good and organised museum with loads of interesting facts and display.
