Great Tour Outside the City

My husband and I had spent several days at all the attractions in Stockholm, but felt a need to see some rural areas. The Viking History Tour was the most interesting way to do this and offered so much more. It was a cold day and the country side looked spectacular with snow-covered fields. Jonathan was the perfect host he explained to Viking history. He had so much knowledge to share and was able to answer all our questions.

Well Worth the Time and Money

My husband and I took the Private Tour: Swedish History Day Trip to World Heritage Candidate Markim-Orkesta from Stockholm. Well worth the time and money as the tour was excellent. We were provided pick up and drop off service from our hotel which was helpful. The two guides added a personal touch to the tour and so much information we couldn’t get from a book or reading online. We saw not only ruins but historical sites, farms and churches. The two guides were knowledgeable, friendly and very professional. It was nice to get out of city and see some of country side. Highly recommend it!

Told with Conviction and Passion

I really like the idea of a guided tour through time with fun and insightful facts about our cultural past from ancient times. I was both intrigued and entertained about hearing stories and myths from the same landscape I was standing on as our guide told with conviction and passion. I enjoy history too and its interesting to see it being told to a modern public of all ages for a small price and resonable guided tour length. I had fun and I am sure many else can be equally entertained when being guided through the fascinating legends of the viking era.

Tremendous Experience

Our Guide, Jonathan, was excellent! He was extremely knowledgeable about the Vikings and their culture. The exchange of information and the depth of his knowledge shined as we asked question after question for the duration of the tour. This is a highly recommended guide and tour when in the Stockholm area.

The Best Tour Ever! Great history tour!

I really enjoyed this tour with Gabriel! He was communicative about when he would pick us up from our hotel. He came inside the hotel lobby to find us (which was good because the van was unmarked). Our tour group was just 6 people total which was great. Gabriel took us to various runestone sites and taught us about the differences between runestones to determine which were older vs newer. Once he started pointing out runestones, I was able to start seeing them everywhere! Gabriel was very knowledgeable about viking history and was able to answer any questions we had.

Great Tour, Excellent Guides

We did the whole day Viking History Tour with fantastic guides "Calle" and "Jonathan". They were both very knowledgeable and guided us through the various locations carefully. The tour was flexible and could be tailored to our interests by spending more or less time in some places. We recommend this tour to someone who wants to gain insight into the heritage of the area.

Viking Tour - Excellent

We enjoyed a half day Viking History tour with guide Calle. We were so pleased to see the Viking stones in natural environments on farmland and replace as they would have been at a dirt road over marshland. We ate lunch at Sigtuna, with Main Street restored as it would have been in the Viking Times. There is also an excellent museum in Sigtuna.

A tour the Vikings would raise a "Skoll" to!

We had a fantastic time on our tour. Our guide, Gabriel, was so engaging and imparted the history of the Vikings with great energy and a depth and breadth of comprehension that was most impressive. We learned so much from him. We also had a lot of fun along the way. He went out of his way to ensure we were all comfortable and enjoying ourselves. Anyone who spends a day learning and exploring with Gabriel should consider themselves very lucky.

Heartfelth thanks

Now, almost at the end of my voyage, I have to give credit to those who really made this trip worthwhile. Carl, Sandra, Leif and Jane, Jonathan (Sweden History Tours), and Levina: thank you again for showing a lost little American boy around your magnificent countries. Too bad for you, I plan on returning.

Beautiful fabulous tour, remarkable guide! Take this tour!

Oh my goodness! We selected this tour because we wanted to see the country out from Stockholm. But we were blown away by the history and beauty of these churches - so old but so well maintained. Best of all, the guide, Jonathan, was so knowledgeable and so excited about all that he was able to show us. He’s brilliant and shared knowledge in such an engaging way. He and the driver had excellent English and were so much fun to be with. We learned so much about Sweden both past and present.

Best Viking tour we could ever wish for!

This tour was amazing!!! A definite MUST do while in Stockholm. We reached out directly to the tour company since TripAdvisor didn’t allow to book online in such short notice. Spoke to Jonathan, and he was very gracious and accommodating. He said he would reach out to tour guides to find out if someone would be available for the next day. He called back promptly after a few hours with confirmation that he found a guide for us. Åsa was the BEST guide we could have hoped for! She took us to all the main sites, gave us ample time to visit, took our photos, answered ALL our questions and was extremely knowledgeable. We were so fortunate and felt honoured she shared so much of the Viking and Swedish history with us. Thank you Åsa and Jonathan for your kindness and for making our Swedish experience unforgettable!

Fashinating Viking culture Tour

Our Half-day Vikings Culture Tour from Stockholm was excellent. Our private guide, Charlotte was incredibly knowledgeable of Swedish and Viking history, and did an excellent job explaining the various aspects of Viking life and culture. We loved seeing the amazing runestones and the town of Sigtuna. Thank you for a delightful day!

Monstrous evil lurks in Sweden On our Dark Uppsala history walk

Nice your. Of course we think Sweden is soft and fluffy but it's really all a sham! The zeal with which they tried to hurt mail or kill 'defective' citizens put the Nazis to shame. The guide was a typical older Swedish lady! You will know what I mean.
