Really amazing! And the guide was the best, cannot remember her name, but she and Olle (1730 departure on saturday 11 sep 21) were simply amazing. The girl made this the best part of our Stockholm trip with her fresh wit.
Very nice trip. The stop is very easy to find. The transition from water to land and vice versa was very exciting but also safe. The tour guide was really great, explained a lot in English and Swedish.
It was so cool, both adults and children thought it was great. The grandson we celebrated (6 years old) said "it was the best surprise of my life".
Nice way to discover Stockholm. Both the guide and the driver/captain are interesting and funny people.
Sightseeing with a difference, well done. Was fun and informative!
