A mix of traditional and ultra-modern, Stockholm is a city of contrasts. Beautiful Medieval architecture mixes seamlessly with chic Scandinavian design, as you'll discover on a private city tour with your own dedicated guide. Built across 14 islands, this Swedish capital encompases plenty of gems, including the renowned Vasa Museum, a building dedicated to an ancient warship resurrected from the depths of the city's harbor and now perfectly preserved in layers of wax. Stroll past the magnificent Royal Palace, or visit the historic City Hall, with its Blue and Gold halls, and take in the marvelous scenery from its tower observation deck as you explore this magnificent city.

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 overwhelmed 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 a few hours 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.

Contact your travel consultant for hours of operation, address, and additional information.

    The information exchange in planning the tour went very well. The tour information and itinerary provided for the trip was the best and most complete for any tour we have taken. All drivers and tour guides were available at the exact minute scheduled. The guide in Athens, particularly, was excellent and answered all of our many questions as well as being very in tune to our needs. We had several questions for local staff and they responded immediately. In addition, we recommend the Hotel Kouros in Mykonos to anyone. A beautiful well maintained hotel with an excellent staff on all levels.

    Our guide was very knowledgeable and accommodating. I appreciated the flexibility in catering to elderly travelers. We got so much more out of the trip with a private driver and guide. Worth the money. A memorable success!
