Traveler Reviews

    This tour was a thoroughly enjoyable history of the changes in the religions in Sweden over the past one thousand years. It was an intelligent tour led by a knowledgable young guide who made the half day pass very quickly. We visited some lovely churches to admire the change in architecture and artwork. Our driver was also delightful and gave us a quick overveiw of the kings and queens. I would highly recommend this tour if you are looking for some history after the Viking period. The tour is taken outside Stockholm so is a chance to see a little bit of the local countryside. Our guide was very happy to adapt the tour to include some things we specifically asked about.
