Day 3: Stockholm

Sinking to the bottom of the harbour in 1628, the Vasa is arguably the best preserved ancient maritime artifact in the world. Its maiden voyage lasted a mere 1300 metres before capsizing just off shore. Early attempts to raise it were unsuccessful, but a state backed effort began salvage in 1956. In 1961, after years of preparation and raising small portions of the ship, the main lift was performed. However, this was just the beginning. Preservations efforts would continue until 1979, when the spraying of the preservative substance was complete.

This elaborate effort and years of hard work have left a legacy for future generations to experience and learn about their seafaring past. Upon entry into the building, you are overwhelemed by the completely restored and preserved Vasa. The ship is incredibly fully assembled indoors multiple related exhibits depicting subjects such as the building process, life on board and Sweden’s rich maritime history.

Dedicate at least a morning to this museum, as it is unlike any other in the world and you will find yourself captivated by the vastness of the ship and the science and dedication behind its preservation.

  • John D. — June 27, 2016 — Europe

    Had a great trip to Spain and Portugal. All went well. No polishing points or constructive feedback to provide. This was the third trip with Kensington in 18 months and all were wonderful.

  • Carlos B. — June 27, 2016 — Europe

    It was our first trip to Italy. I can only describe my experience as exceptional. The tour guides were very knowledgeable and friendly. The tours were exceptional and very punctual. The accommodations and transportation were first class. I have already started to recommend Kensington tours and I will definitely will use them in my future trips.

  • Nancy H. — June 27, 2016 — Europe

    This was the second tour we have taken with Kensington Tours. This was very different from our first tour but just right for this time. My husband and I traveled with my 85 year old parents.The accommodations and the pace of the travel worked very well. Our guide, Dermot, was very friendly and very understanding of our special needs as well as very knowledgeable. I have already had further communication with him. Thanks for the memorable experience.

  • Molly P. — June 22, 2016 — Europe

    Our family loved our week in Iceland. I am 70 and our youngest is 9. Each activity was well suited for the whole group. We changed one event and Kensington Tours immediately helped us cancel one and sign up for a new adventure. When I had questions they helped me out. Their professionalism, kindness, and attentiveness made our trip a complete success. Thank you!

  • Tammy M. — June 22, 2016 — Europe

    Jessica Clements was a tremendous help as my husband and I planned our pre-cruise visit to Athens and the Peloponnese. Many thanks for all your efforts. We enjoyed our tours very much. Our guides, Niki Stavrakaki and Andronikos Sakatos, were phenomenal. Our drivers, Makias and Demetrios, were very professional and delightful gentlemen. We had a great time exploring many of the ancient sites we've dreamed of seeing for years.

  • Caroline W. — June 22, 2016 — Europe

    Transfers were seamless and activities were great. Overall, we are very impressed with Kensington!

  • Beth N. — June 15, 2016 — Europe

    Everything exceeded our expectations!!! Our guides were amazing. Our hotels were wonderful. I wouldn't change anything about our trip! Thanks for your help!

  • Dalia D. — June 15, 2016 — Europe

    I am so glad that I used Kensington Tours to help me plan my trip to Italy. Ingryd was an excellent agent - she understood exactly what was important to my family and every aspect of our trip from Rome to Florence to Venice was well planned and enjoyable, with no hiccups. We made changes to our schedule when in Italy and the local agents were very responsive and quickly adapted our plans to work better for us. We loved the personal attention we got on our private guided tours and felt we learned a lot from knowledgeable guides that were personable and very informative.

  • Barbara K. — June 08, 2016 — Europe

    Another fabulous trip! John O'Connell was so congenial and knowledgeable. I feel like he has become a new friend. We had a great time with him and he made some excellent recommendations for small changes in our itinerary. He was so attentive and caring with my mother too! A really sweet man. Sean Finnigan in Dublin was a bundle of energy - took us to the museum to see the gold exhibit which we knew nothing about - so glad he did! Bought my sister and I a postcard of the Book of Kells alphabet as a remembrance - so kind! It was a trip we will never forget!!

  • Samuel T. — June 08, 2016 — Europe

    Wonderful preparation! Great time and great planning. Definitely use them again in the future.
