Classic Stockholm Accessible Guided Tour
This half day accessible guided tour of Stockholm includes an accessible ferry ride and visits the Vasa Museum, Royal Palace, City Hall, and more!
From the cruise port, you can take a shuttle bus to the Opera Building. Here your fully licensed tour guide will meet you for this 4 hour Classic Stockholm Accessible Guided Tour.
Your tour will include Stortorget, the main square, of the Old Town, where you will learn about the beginnings of Stockholm. The walk of the Old Town ends by the Djurgården Ferry, which will take you across to the island of Djurgården. The ferry ride only takes between 7 to 10 minutes, but during that time you will have the opportunity to see Stockholm from a different perspective as you enjoy views of the island of Södermalm, the museum of Photography, and much more.
Arriving on the island of Djurgården, your Stockholm accessible guided tour will visit the Vasa Museum; the world’s most visited maritime museum, where you can see a 17th century salvaged ship!
From the island of Djurgården you will proceed towards the city centre and City Hall. The city centre offers great shopping opportunities; it is the focal point of modern Stockholm.
The City Hall is mainly known as the venue for the Nobel Prize Banquet. During your visit you will learn about: Why is the Blue Hall not blue? How tall is the tower? How many bricks was used to put the building together? This is one of the most fascinating buildings the city has to offer!
