For a more historical tour check out The Old Town Tour! Follow the guide through cobblestone streets and narrow alleyways as you get to hear about the original island of Stockholm, founded way back in the 13th century.
Old Town or Gamla Stan is filled with beautiful houses and cozy little squares but its history is ripe with blood chilling stories! With 750 years of history, Old Town has enough stories to last for a day-long tour: So we made sure to only include the very best ones! Also, we threw in lots of stuff about vikings for good measure.
Most of our Old Town Tours take place later during the day when it’s easier to move around in a large group, a perfect evening activity when shops and museums start to close up!
