The highlights of Stockholm and a visit to Drottningholm Palace (where the King & Queen reside)!


When you have been on this tour, you will have a pretty good idea of the layout of Stockholm and an understanding of how Swedes live their life.

This tour will cover parts of the old city, Södermalm as well as the green lush "Djurgarden" where many of my favourite museums are. We will have the car all the time, to minimize the walking. After a lunch break we will head out to the country side and Drottningholm Palace.

You will receive maps and information of the places we visit, as well as recommendations for good restaurants. I hope you will join me on this "Tour of Stockholm" so I can show you my home town! Welcome.

Itinerary

We will meet up centrally in Stockholm and make our way by car through the old town "Gamla Stan" with the Royal Castle. If you feel up to walking we can find a parking place close by and take a walking tour of the old town "Gamla Stan".

We will stop for a fabulous view of the whole of the city at Södermalm and from here we will drive to Djurgården where I suggest we stop for a visit at the Vasa Museum. This is one of my favourite museums but there are a lot of others worthwhile visiting depending on your interests. I will brief you on the way and you can then choose where you would like to go, I can recommend one of the wonderful art galleries. Somewhere on the way we will stop for a traditional lunch - maybe some Swedish meatballs?

Then we head out to the country side, south of Stockholm, where we will visit the Royal Drottningholm Palace, a World Heritage Site, with its beautiful gardens.

I will drive you back to your hotel or wherever you choose in the city - maybe a nice place for your dinner?

Meeting Location + Tour Duration

Meeting location: Centrally in Stockholm - your hotel, dock or other meeting point.

If you are arriving on board a cruise ship, please check which port it is docking at. The port of NYNASHAMN is an hours drive outside of Stockholm and not a meeting point. Upon agreement pick-up from Nynashamn may be arranged at an additional fee.

End location: Where you are staying or wherever else you wish to be left centrally in Stockholm.

Duration: 7 hours

The return drive from Drottningholm may take a bit longer, depending on the traffic.

By car in a VW Sharan with sun roof. It can take up to 6 passengers, but has a little less leg room in the back 2 seats. Cars are not allowed in the old town "Gamla Stan" but I can arrange to park close by and we can walk in. Please be aware that there are plenty of cobbled stoned streets that can be uneven and sometimes a bit difficult to walk on.

A Recent Review of this tour

Although my husband had been to Stockholm many years earlier, this was my first time to Stockholm and Jessica made it great! She was full of energy and knew so much about the city, and surrounding area, that I left feeling like I really knew Stockholm. We had specific things we wanted to see and she made sure we got to see them all plus some. Her suggestion for lunch was fabulous, and she even fit in my requested 'fika' experience. I hope to be able to tour with her again. If you have the chance, do it.
