    Our tour guide was very nice and attentive. I feel the tour was overpriced given where we went and the level of information provided.

    The tour was very informative. The tour guide Emma had a wealth of knowledge and was very personable. On the day, my wife and I were the only customers but we were collected from our hotel in a comfotable car and had the tour guide all to ourselves which was an added bonus. We are glad that we took the tour as it provided us with the opportunity to see some of the surrounding towns and countryside that we would have missed had we stayed in Stockholm and of course we learned a lot about the viking culture along the way. Great way to spend a day's vacation.

    Hi, I liked very much organisation of the tour. I was picked up and dropped of near my hotel. As for the tour, it was organised and thoughtfully designed to have enough time to look around, eat and enjoy different places. Our guide, was very knowledgeable, too. Thank you! Annie

    The guide was very knowledgeable and professional. She added lots of human interest stories. Time allowed at the stops was just the right length. The group traveled in small vans and the guide was in the other van so we did not get the advantage of information she provided during the Lind drive between stops.

    It was wonderful to get out into the country. Carl, our guide, was fabulous. He taught so much about Viking history and took us to many memorable sites. He was pleasant and knowledgeable and the small group experience was so much better than a large group. Well worth the money.

    Our tour guide Gabriel was amazing! He crafted stories of the Vikings history as he navigated through interesting places. Lunch in Sigtuna and a stop at a local candy shop did not disappoint. Uppsala was a beautiful stop too - and why we went for the full day over half-day tour. We recommend trying the Mead in Uppsala - delicious! Having a private tour was well worth the money - the day was a full one - but at our own pace and we enjoyed the conversations we had with Gabriel. Highly recommend.

    Great day trip! We would never have found so many important and interesting places on our own. Calle (Carl) was a great companion and full of historical knowledge. We had a great day and would do it again.

    Incredible experience with Asa and Sweden History Tours. Execution was perfect, her knowledge of Viking history was unparallel and her attitude/general demeanor was great. Highly recommend this trip for any Viking aficionado. Thank you for amazing tour.

    Awesome day out with Emma and Erik! The first part of the tour is really focused on the Viking rune stone locations and very interesting - forget what you thought you knew! Jonathan met us at one of the locations and gave us some great extra info, it was cool to meet him! The Sigtuna trip is lovely and there was all sorts to see in Uppsala. This is a really great tour and a nice way to spend a day away from the city. I would highly recommend this tour! Thank you Emma, Erik and Jonathan.

    Very relaxing and informative tour. Gabriel was excellent. As it was a private tour, we went at our own pace. Enjoyed learning and seeing over 1000 years of Viking and Swedish history.
