Private Stockholm Tours — In a Nutshell Tour

Welcome to Stockholm, city of  Alfred Nobel- a pacifist who invented Dynamite and established Nobel Prize, Carolus Linnaeus-a father of modern classification of flora of the world, Andres Celsius — inventor of centigrade thermometer, Jean Batiste Bernadotte – a Napoleon’s general who became a Swedish king;  a city of  IKEA, ABBA, characters from “The Girl with the Dragoon Tattoo” and much more. Built on 14 islands, scattered between the Baltic Sea and Lake Mälaren (click here to learn more about the history of Stockholm), Stockholm remains eternally young city, and citizens of which keep its old charm as you will see with our private Stockholm Tours.

You can choose between two Stockholm tours but in any case after meeting you at the port, we will take you on a panoramic drive to the first photo stop-Fjällgatan, a charming alley situated on the edge of Stockholm’s biggest island, Södermalm. From there you will get an unforgettable view of Stockholm

Riksdag (the Swedish Parliament)

-will visit the Vasa Museum on Stockholm’s greenest island, Djurgården

(King Gustav Adolf’s mighty ship, The Vasa, was intended for a major role in the Swedish Navy. But fate decreed otherwise: the ship foundered shortly after embarking on her maiden voyage in 1628.The Vasa was salvaged after 333 years on the bottom of Stockholm StrÖm and now the world’s only preserved XVII century ship. Adorned with more than 700 carved sculptures, she is also a unique treasury of art making an overwhelming impression on each and every visitor).
