A good start to get to know a city. The recording with different languages, which are selected via headset, is a bit dated and needs to be renewed. The staff didn't even know that an overview card had to be handed out so that the numbering could be assigned in the lecture. Too bad.

Very good cruise on the canal, the presentation in French is very good, this allows you to visit corners of Stockholm that will not be visited on a short weekend. By cons on the site it is said that there was little space while the boat was almost empty :)

The audio guide with a wide range of languages in combination with the schedule is just brilliant and the tour was very, very nice and above all extremely entertaining. We didn't notice how quickly time passed. It was also completely unimportant that the admission in DE had to be 3 years old because Prince Oskar was not mentioned and point 27 was not planned. The trip is idyllic and just great.
