Wonderful Tour

Our tour guide was wonderful and Stockholm is well worth spending money on an organized tour! What a beautiful and diverse city! We had difficulty following the directions given to Gamla Stan, the old city, where the tour started. It took us about an hour using GPS to walk to the Metro and find the meeting place. Anyone with mobility issues definitely should take a taxi. $$

A nice walk of the old town plus a ferry ride to see the Viking ship. We only had a few hours in Stockholm and the time was well spent.
