Stockholm Shore Excursion: Private Stockholm City Walking Tour Including the Vasa Museum
When your ship docks in Stockholm, see three of the Swedish capital?s highlights on a 3-hour private walking tour. Enjoy the full attention of your guide as you explore the beautiful Gamla Stan (Old Town), home to the Coronation Church and Royal Palace. Afterward, ride a ferry to Djurgården Island to tour the fascinating Vasa Museum. This impressive venue hosts the famous \'Vasa,\' a massive warship that sank in 1628 and that has been meticulously reassembled. It\'s a close-up introduction to three of the best sights in Stockholm, and a great way to spend time in port!

While you?re in port in Stockholm, seize the opportunity to see some of the city?s finest sights with a personal guide on a private walking tour. Meet your expert guide near Stortorget, the main square in Stockholm?s picture-book Gamla Stan (Old Town).

This charming district is steeped in history, and your guide reveals interesting facts about the people who once lived here, including Birger Jarl, hailed as the man who founded the city in around 1250.?? Explore the quaint streets and see the top Gamla Stan attractions including the imposing Coronation Church and the statue of St George and the Dragon. You\'ll also stop to pose for pictures outside the Stockholm Royal Palace, the official residence of Sweden?s royal family.

?Afterward, take the 10-minute ferry ride to Djurgården Island. Watch Gamla Stan slip from view as you cruise and discover the charms of the island on a leisurely walking tour. Pass pretty 18th-century wooden houses and tranquil parkland. And keep an eye out for an interesting gravedigger?s house!??

Djurgården?s star attraction is the fascinating Vasa Museum, home to a meticulously restored ship that was submerged for 300 years. Stand before it as you learn its story on a 30-minute museum tour. Marvel at features such as her bronze cannon; it\'s a weapon that would have made her a feared warship should she not have sank on her maiden voyage! Explore the ship itself, watch a short film and enjoy a coffee in the restaurant. ??

Your tour finishes inside the Vasa Museum, and you can continue exploring independently if you wish. When you\'re finished, make your way back to port by walking or other means of public transportation.

Please note: This excursion is located approximately 25 minutes walk to the cruise port. You get to determine the time you return to your ship in Stockholm. Please allow yourself ample time to enjoy the excursion and ensure your timely return to the port. This excursion is not covered by our worry-free policy.
