You will also get to see panoramic views of picturesque Lake Mälaren and its surrounding countryside. This is a perfect introduction to Stockholm and its Old Town district.

    Cathrin is very nice, passionat and competent. But for my me she focused too much on history and not enough on the build, architecture of building by pointing out the styles. We walked without being encouraged to look up and at things. The rest was very nice.

    The tour, the guide and the food were all very good. I wish there could have been a sweet and a savoury option for the whole tour as I'm not much of a sweet tooth. Also, there were less stops due to the pandemic, it would probably be even better if we had stopped at more places. Overall, good experience although a bit pricey
