Able to sample a large variety of foods (cheese, licorice, reindeer, caribou, herring, chocolate, cinnamon buns, and ice cream) and see some of the city during our walk. However, getting to the meeting location was crazy expensive ($50).

This was one of the best shore excursion experiences that we have had while traveling. We had a energetic guide that shared lots of wonderful stories and the food tasting with walking was perfect. We covered about 5 miles of the city, hitting all the landmarks and timing included a changing of the guard. Would recommend this to anyone who wants a tour with small group and does not mind the fast paced walking.
