Departure Point

Traveler pickup is offered
All central hotels, ports and other accommodations within 3km from Stockholm central station (no pick up at Nynäshamn harbour but instead travel directions to meeting place in Stockholm).

If your tour departs from the cruise pier:

If your ship arrives at S165 and S167 STADSGÅRDEN: Please walk a few hundred meters away from your ship while following the BLUE/GREEN lines. Go past the fences and guards, and your guide will wait there, with a sign saying "Viking Tours" on an A4-paper.  NOTE: If you enter any other harbour number in STADSGÅRDEN than S165 or S167 please go outside the fences and guards and the guide will meet you there on the time of the tour.

If your ship arrives at F638 FRIHAMNEN: Upon debarking the ship, please go through the terminal building. Once you go past the sliding doors (everyone else that departs the ship will walk out this way), the guide will meet you just outside the sliding doors. The guide will be holding an A4-paper saying "Viking Tours". NOTE: If you enter any other harbour number in FRIHAMNEN than F638 please go outside the fences and guards and the guide will meet you there on the time of the tour.

If your ship arrives at V523 VÄRTAHAMNEN: Walk from your ship towards the tourist buses, which is less than 10 meters from the ship hull. The guide will wait for you at the tourist bus area, near the buses, with an A4-paper, which says "Viking Tours." The guide will then direct you to the tour vehicle. NOTE: If you enter any other harbour number in VÄRTAHAMNEN than V523 please go outside the fences and guards and the guide will meet you there on the time of the tour.

If your Ship Arrives at NYNÄSHAMN: NO PICK UP INCLUDED HERE. That due to it being 50km away from Stockholm central station. We recomend you to contact and with us decide a meeting place in Central Stockholm. We will give directions how to go there either by train or that take one of the cruise busses going from the harbour into Stockholm.

If you are unsure of which pier your ship is arriving at, please check with the cruise line.

A good day.

The trip was very interesting and learned quite a lot. More time to sit down to have a lunch would have been better as time was running out to see all the things. An extra history building or style of old home would have been good to have seen to mix it up a bit.

Very Knowledgeable guide! Angus...

Very Knowledgeable guide! Angus showed us many sites, the churches and their history, the religion history and the stones! The rune were very interesting and the stories they told behind them which you would not be able to decipher on your own. Angus allowed us to ask many questions and he even answered personal questions about his living in the area for 6 generations. If you are interested in this area, this is a very good tour.

My husband and I took a private tour...

My husband and I took a private tour of the Swedish History Day trip. It was excellent. The two guides Angus and Jonathan were knowledgeable, friendly and provided a great tour. It was customized to the history of the area as well as they provided more information of Sweden when we asked. The pick up and drop off service from our hotel was helpful. Highly recommend it!
