Owner description: Want to try something that's interesting, fun and costs absolutely nothing? Take a free guided tour of Stockholm! The Old Town tour and the City tour both start at Sergels Torg, and the Söder tour starts at Slussen. All tours take approximately 90 minutes, and if you liked the tour, you may tip your guide. That's it! The guides live off tips, so this is the best tour in Stockholm - if it weren't they wouldn't get paid! That's why they're funny, energetic, and love to help you as much as they can. Take a free tour this week!

“Group size beyond ideal”
Reviewed 1 April 2013

There were about 40 in our group making it difficult to hear our guide Nina. It took a while to have the whole group move from point to point and by which time the time left to know Stockholm was very little. For a city of rich culture, I believe the tour can be longer.

Although this is a free tour, if it can be delivered better, participants will tip well. The lack of a registration system runs a risk of having a group size beyond the ideal.

“must do!”
Reviewed 19 March 2013

last thursday i went on the free city tour with our guide ASHLEY. it was our first day here in stockholm and the tour was a great opportunity to get to know the city and creating an internal map in my mind about stockholm. the tour wasnt boring at all / at the opposite it think ashley found the balance for people that are interested in history and for those that just want to do some sightseeing. we also got to know a few funny facts and she managed to guide the tour in very personal way although everyone was freezing and there was a rough wind. i would recommend the tour to everyone who is visiting stockholm and if you are on a tour with ashley you will be lucky :)

“Excellent free tour”
Reviewed 7 March 2013 via mobile

The tours are offered as a City tour and a Tour of the old town. I did both the tours, they were well organised, easy to find in the main square (at the top of the stairs - see the website for instructions). The tour guides were both very knowledgeable and spoke English very well. Despite slightly frosty conditions, the tour was entertaining and highly recommended. As the name suggests it is a free tour, however as the guides are not paid for their time and tip is recommended.

“Great Experience in Stockholm”
Reviewed 27 February 2013 via mobile

I am traveling with my wife and father-in-law through a Scandavian adventure and we chose to try the Free Tour of Stockholm based upon the adivce on Trip Advisor and were certainly grateful for the advice. We started with the morning tour with Jennifer, who was giving her first tour, and made our way through the highlights of Stockholm while making a few jokes as we went through town. We all enjoyed this enough to take the Old Town tour with Jessica later that night and were certainly entertained and educated. Having a guide through the maze of the old town and being told the history of Stockholm has certainly been a great experience, which I would highly recommend.
