We had a nice city via guru and learned something about the history of Stockholm . Interesting walk but also with a lot of disturbance of 3 annoying kids from a couple which also participated. I think the whole group was irritated.

This tour was more than just the old city! We heard about the history, some really interesting cultural facts and I liked that our guide emigrated to Sweden and gave a broader perspective
