    The company changed our date to October 6 Sunday and we agreed because we wanted to see Sigtuna regardless of the date. But the guide did not take us to Sigtuna in this tour which was very disappointing. We realized it after the tour was over. Very disappointed.

    An informative introduction to reading ancient Rune Stones. Angus read the inscriptions on a number of stones and showed how the writing is laid out. We saw several Viking sites including a meeting place, a farmstead, and a causeway. It was a treat to go into the countryside north of Stockholm. We had a “fika” at a farmhouse near several of the Viking sites; people have lived in this area for thousands of years

    Our guide was very nice and knowledgeable. We stopped at various spots to see old runes. We also made a stop at a wonderful farm, where we were given delicious homemade rhubarb pie and coffee. The trip concludes in Sig Tuna, before heading back to Stockholm. It's a great 1/2 day trip out of Stockholm to learn some history, see old runes, and hear about the Vikings.

    Really awesome tour...very informative. Would do again!

    Disappointing. Although the driver and guide were nice people. The guide's explanations of the history were confusing and his English could be better. We were crammed into a hot mini bus. Best part of the day was a lovely Swedish lunch in an old house and the drive through the snow covered villages at the end of the tour. The tour promoted Sigtuna - a walk in the town etc, but that didn't even happen!
    Pity - I was looking forward to visiting Sigtuna the most.

    Truly wonderful. I had a splendid time taking this half-day tour while in Stockholm. It was limited to a tiny group of people and our guide, who was friendly, pleasant, and incredible knowledgeable, led us to many of the most fascinating and beautiful Viking sights. I probably would not have had a chance to visit these ruins and sights in person otherwise. Highly recommended.

    This was a great tour to get around the different sites to learn about Viking history. Despite the weather being rainy and cold, it was a great trip and would highly recommend!

    Amazing tour! Just beware many of the stops are muddy during the rainy season!

    Could be better if the guide knew more history and explain everything that happened around. We felt like hiring a chofer. Too bad because there are a lot of things to tell about the area. Sigtuna is a beautiful little town to visit longer, we know it was cold but he only took us to the beautiful church, we only saw the old rock church but he did not give us more info, the smallest city hall in Sweden and the tourist info center. The guide did not cover our expectations eventhough the area is nice, thanks God we had a written guide to know more about all around.
