Let me start off by saying I was intrigued at what this tour would be possibly covering, as I wanted to learn more about Vikings while in Stockholm and the Nordic countries. My pickup was changed last minute to save time from my hotel to central station, which made sense and I was not mad about at all. They dropped me back off at my hotel at the end. The tour itself was average. For the amount of time that was taken we got back into Stockholm around 4pm, so its more than a half day FYI, i wish there was more stuff that was covered. Spending 45 minutes to walk around/free time in Sigtuna was basically just of a waste of time. Angus and Jonathan are both nice/cordial and will gladly answer any questions you might have at any point. In my opinon, there is just too much time driving around and free time at Sigtuna to make it worth a day of your trip.

Lovely day away from the city but not too far away and brushing up on some Nordic history. Our guide was Angus, he had extensive knowledge on everything viking related accompanied with a great sense of humor.

The guides were very good and knowledgeable, but the proportion of driving to the locations vs. the content at the locations was a bit lopsided. I wished more time was spent on Viking history.

Our tour guide Angus was a walking encyclopaedia/fountain/wikipedia of knowledge which was brilliant! Informative, interesting and a lot of fun! Caught a brilliant sunset in Sigtuna and learnt a lot about locsl history!

It was nice to walk through the historical sites outside Stockholm. The guide knows the history well. He also prepared some material to show us the things found in those historical sites. The visit to Sigtuna was wonderful.

Very good tour, great local guide who showed us many 'secret' places off the beaten track. Highly recommended!

An interesting tour but a little disorganized. Disappointed that we missed out on the Viking music.
