Beautiful fabulous tour, remarkable guide! Take this tour!

Oh my goodness! We selected this tour because we wanted to see the country out from Stockholm. But we were blown away by the history and beauty of these churches - so old but so well maintained. Best of all, the guide, Jonathan, was so knowledgeable and so excited about all that he was able to show us. He’s brilliant and shared knowledge in such an engaging way. He and the driver had excellent English and were so much fun to be with. We learned so much about Sweden both past and present.
