Welcome to Rainbow Tours! We are a group of national and international students of Stockholm, who want to share this beautiful city with everyone. We all love and support the "Free Walking Tours" idea as we are students who enjoy traveling, and we want to go one step further: making the tours more friendly and personal, trying to connect with everyone, and to make the tours accesible for everyone. Book your tour because there are limited spots! And more guides will attend if necessary.

Tour description

Join us on our Old Town Tour to enjoy the beautiful island of Gamlastan and understand why the Vikings chose this island to create their next capital. Our tour is designed chronologically so you can experience history just like the city did. We will start from the Viking Era, the German influence in the country and the Danish clash which led to the most important Swedish event: the Stockholm bloodbath in 1520 followed by the succession of Gustav Vasa. 

The tour ends in Stortorget, by the Nobel Prize Museum. 


There are limited spots, so please, book in advance! In case you come with a group of 6 or more, contact us for a private tour.
