Our guide was very nice and knowledgeable. We stopped at various spots to see old runes. We also made a stop at a wonderful farm, where we were given delicious homemade rhubarb pie and coffee. The trip concludes in Sig Tuna, before heading back to Stockholm. It's a great 1/2 day trip out of Stockholm to learn some history, see old runes, and hear about the Vikings.
Disappointing. Although the driver and guide were nice people. The guide's explanations of the history were confusing and his English could be better. We were crammed into a hot mini bus. Best part of the day was a lovely Swedish lunch in an old house and the drive through the snow covered villages at the end of the tour. The tour promoted Sigtuna - a walk in the town etc, but that didn't even happen!
Pity - I was looking forward to visiting Sigtuna the most.
Truly wonderful. I had a splendid time taking this half-day tour while in Stockholm. It was limited to a tiny group of people and our guide, who was friendly, pleasant, and incredible knowledgeable, led us to many of the most fascinating and beautiful Viking sights. I probably would not have had a chance to visit these ruins and sights in person otherwise. Highly recommended.
Could be better if the guide knew more history and explain everything that happened around. We felt like hiring a chofer. Too bad because there are a lot of things to tell about the area. Sigtuna is a beautiful little town to visit longer, we know it was cold but he only took us to the beautiful church, we only saw the old rock church but he did not give us more info, the smallest city hall in Sweden and the tourist info center. The guide did not cover our expectations eventhough the area is nice, thanks God we had a written guide to know more about all around.
This tour in my opinion was worth taking, just don't expect too much as there was really nothing spectacular about the places we've visited except the history itself. The tour guide I forgot his name was devoted to the retelling of the history/facts but we were not given enough time on our own to take photos and enjoy each sight. I actually had to sneak away silently while he was talking just so I could take photos before we'd leave every place! :o
