What people are saying about Stockholm

Wir haben die Tour um 10:30 Uhr gemacht. Der Anlegeplatz war gut zu finden und die Crew war sehr freundlich. Man hat nach ca 1 1/2 Stunden Fahrt die Möglichkeit auf der Insel Vaxholm auszusteigen und es gibt später am Tag 2 Möglichkeiten wieder auf einem Boot zuzusteigen und zurück nach Stockholm zu fahren.

Right , I have had the best time of my life on this tour . David is super funny but very knowledgeable at the same time . He really made my day a better one ! We sung , we clapped our hands we laughed , I absolutely adored it . I cannot recommend it enough !

Magnifique visite, la plus belle vue de la ville avec des commentaires vraiment utiles et disponibles dans un grand nombre de langue. Nous recommandons vivement une visite en bateau qui, en 1h, permet de connaitre beaucoup sur la ville.
