    We spent a day touring Viking sites with Nadia. We travel frequently and have been to more countries than I can name. In all that time, we have never had a guide as bright, insightful, and fun as Nadia. She has a Ph.D in anthropology and a deep understanding of many cultures, including the Vikings. She is thoughtful and flexible with a great sense of humor. If you want an unforgetable day you will always remember with a smile on your face spend a tour anywhere in Sweden with Nadia.

    While the tour guide was knowledgeable and informative out of 8 hours over 5 spent in the car. Felt like the tour company did not want to follow thru with pick up and dropping off at port and they cut out a planned part of the tour.

    This was nice, relaxing, and educational! We had a good time as family, and our guide Quentin was very accommodating and knowledgeable. We learned new things, and saw interesting places. There is a lunch stop at your own cost, at town of Sigtuna.

    The reason we decided on a driving tour was because my husband has issues with walking, and this was a good option. There was a bit of an issue on scheduling, but was resolved well. Oddly, our guide was a 20-year-old Frenchman with a love for Vikings, who had just started working for the company three weeks before. But he tried his best, and we were amazed at how well he navigated the freeways after only being in the country a limited amount of time. The tour was a little unconventional, which included taking an unknown to him back trail across a forest on the way to see some Viking era-descendant horses, missing the way to a burial mound we've seen several burial mounds in our lives and told him not to worry about it, and speaking only limited English. I'm sure his English is much better now, that he doesn't get lost so often, and that the company coordinates guides with clients in a more orderly manner. Lunch was scheduled for the buffet at a golf club we paid, which initially seemed odd but it was full of traditional Swedish dishes. We saw several runes, but the best thing of the tour was the first stop -- a visit to a farm that was was being run in the same way it would have operated in the Viking era. One of the gentleman living that life was very knowledgeable, very articulate and he and the authentic buildings and practices were the highlight of the this tour. The city of Sigtuna was somewhat interesting, but we may have been burned out on historic churches at the end of our three-week European tour.

    The tour was interesting and had a good variety of Viking history and information - things to see and to hear about. There were, of course, the stone runes, but also a farm, a museum, churches, the lovely town of Sigtuna, and a knowledgeable guide. He was not the typical guide who has learned enough to be a freelancer. The guide grew up in the area and has a true interest in the subject matter. It was nice to drive about the country side too.
