In addition to the Old Town we will visit the fascinating Vasa Ship Museum and see historic Sweden in miniature at the Skansen Outdoor Museum. We start with a panoramic drive through the city center, passing the neighboring island of Djurgården, known as Stockholm’s outdoor recreation center, and such historic sites as the National Museum and the Royal Dramatic Theater.
Our tour continues on to Gamla Stan, the Old Town, where Stockholm began over eight centuries ago. On our brief, guided walking tour, you can savor the romantic atmosphere and sense the antiquity of the 16th- to 19th-century buildings, baroque doorways and regal coats of arms. We’ll see the Stortorget – the square that serves as the hub of the Old Town, and the old Stock Exchange, now home of the Nobel Museum and the Swedish Academy, whose members decide each year’s winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature.
After this walking tour, we visit the Skansen Outdoor Museum, home to more than 160 original, historic homes and buildings from all over Sweden that together portray what everyday life in the country was like in centuries past. Museum staff dressed in period costumes make the museum truly come alive. Skansen also has a small zoo featuring typical Swedish animals such as moose, reindeer and bear.
At Skansen we’ll have free time for a lunch break before heading to our next destination: the Vasa Museum. This extensive museum was built specifically to house the Vasa, the oldest fully-preserved ship in the world. On her maiden voyage in 1628, the warship had been sailing for less than 20 minutes before the wind caught her sails and toppled her. Over three centuries later, in 1961, she was finally raised from the mud of Stocholm harbor, along with 12,000 accompanying artifacts.
After a guided tour, you’ll have time to explore the museum’s other exhibits and displays of historic items recovered from the harbor floor. The tour concludes with a drive back to the cruise port or your hotel.
Reviews of our tours
We are a family of 9 (age range 75 to 9 years old) and were on a Baltic cruise and spent the day with Eva-Maria in Tallinn on a private tour. She was an awesome guide. Her enthusiasm for her city is infectious. She turned what we thought to be a throw-away port of call to one of the funner stops on our cruise. She was easy to work with and highly responsive prior to docking in Tallinn so arranging the excursion was a breeze….don’t let the cruise line lock you into their terrible excursions with WAY too many people on the excursion! Get personalized service from companies like Eva-Maria’s!
She arranged a very nice bus for all of us so it was super comfortable. We have a child in a fold up wheelchair and she accommodated us perfectly. Mobility is a slight challenge in the old town (as in a lot of old European cities with a lot of cobblestone streets) but it was quite manageable for us.
We spent the day touring the old town, both upper and lower and then went to the Viking Village. This tour struck a good balance between the adults and the kids. The older folks appreciated the history and architecture of the old city and the kids had fun at the Viking Village, throwing axes and launching the catapult. The food served at the Viking Village was actually really good and the atmosphere of an old style Viking lodge was really fun.
We liked Eva-Maria so much, we decided to use her company to arrange excursions in Helsinki, Stockholm and Copenhagen and they were all excellent (I will add reviews in those cities).
I would highly recommend this company to arrange your excursions!
