Great, knowledgeable guides, great service, fascinating tour!

Angus and Jonathan were enthusiastic and very knowledgeable. They tailored their tour to our interests and to those of our kids. It was lovely to get out of town and see some beautiful countryside and to be able to match them up with artifacts we’d seen museums. We found it moving to be in places where the Vikings really lived and fantastic go to some spots we would otherwise have missed. We all learned heaps! Top marks, we were buzzing for days.

The Viking Tour was really interesting, especially as our guide - Quentin from France - was so passionate and knowledgeable about the subject. We adapted around some bad weather, and he was extremely accommodating when dropping us off at destinations of our choice. I especially enjoys Sigtuna. It's a bit touristy, but if you walk down to the lake, it is very beautiful and peaceful.

Jonathan and Lena-Marie were both great guides and very informative about Viking culture. All of the stops were very scenic, especially Sigtuna which was a great time to walk around and explore. Would definitely recommend this tour!

An absolutely sensational tour! Nadia our tour guide was incredibly knowledgeable and we all had a terrific time on the tour. Highly recommend to anyone considering doing this tour, it is well worth it!
