Owner description: Leaving the inner city behind, we'll pass beautiful and famous buildings as we enter the peaceful Djurgarden canal. On the canal we will pass several historical buildings, museums and beautiful green areas. When we head home, a fabulous view of the Stockholm skyline opens up - only to be seen from the water! The tour is guided in 11 languages. On board we have crayons and paper for the kids.

“Worth it to get your bearings”
Reviewed 29 July 2014 via mobile

As it is included with the Stockholm Card, I am happy we took the time.

Those first to board get window seats. Those last to board are in the aisles.

They offer headsets so that you are able to listen to the your in your choice of about 14 languages.

After the tour I was able to make a decision as to what sites we could walk to and visit during our 48 hours with the Stockholm Card.

If you don't take this, the Hop On Hop Off Boat is the smarter option.

“Average. Better to visit the island you circle.”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

This was okay and a decent way to relax for an hour but, nothing overly exciting. The tour guide was fine but didn't really provide many fascinating insights (pointing out where a member of Abba lives...) and the island you encircle during the trip is better seen from actually visiting it.

“chill and relax for 1 hour”
Reviewed 5 July 2014

This tour is included for free in Stockholm card. Worth enjoying this once you have completed the sightseeing as most of palaces and museum close by 17:00. The guided tour is in English and takes you through canals, showing palaces and other historical significant attractions. The best part is when boat reaches Djurgarden island. It's very relaxing, serene and peaceful.

“Relaxing 50mins boat tour”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

This boat tour is included in the Stockholm card (with the card you can choose to either go on this tour OR the Historical boat tour). The last boat is at 19.30 which makes it ideal since almost all museums close at 5pm. There is an audio guide headset (in a number of languages) and a map of the tour on each seat. You can ride the boat just next to the Royal Palace and in front of the Grand Hotel.

“Nothing fancy but worthwhile to do”
Reviewed 26 May 2014 via mobile

After walking for hours around the city (the number one thing to do in Stockholm), it was great to just sit and watch for a while from the boat. It's not fancy but totally worth it on a sunny day, sunset, or evening. A boat leaves every hour and only takes 50min. It was warm temp so I sat outside in the back which was much better than being inside.
