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!

“One of the best things to do in Stockholm!”
Reviewed 12 November 2011

Our tourguide was Kevin and we had such a great time! Kevin was very knowledgeable and you could tell he had a passion for Swedish history/culture... I mean, he even made hand outs for us so we could actually associate faces with names!! So many interesting facts, nice little jokes, and very open discourse. Loved the tour and the city! Thanks to Kevin for his time, knowledge, and organization. Made a great memory for me and my boyfriend and I'd totally recommend it to everyone. Although it is free, man does he really deserve some monetary love!

Tip for you -- Ideally, in scheduling, you should put the free walking tour as first on your to do list as it helps orientate you to the area.

Hello Jessica L, thank you so much for taking the time to review our tour. We're lucky to have Kevin as a tour guide, few native Stockholmers know as much as he does after less than a year in Stockholm! Once again, thank you for your time and your generosity!

All the best,

Annelie @ Free Tour Stockholm

“In a city where the cheapest meal is 60 SEK, free is unheard of!”
Reviewed 7 November 2011

My tour guide Kevin was super personable, funny and knowledgeable about the history of Stockholm. His passion for the city will bring new life to sites I might otherwise never have known or noticed.

As a really expensive city to visit, i appreciated being led around on a free tour to get oriented and learn about the history of Stockholm. Our guide Kevin was friendly and knowledgable.

“Great tour!”
Reviewed 30 September 2011

Great tour for someone who doesn't know much about the city. You get to find out many interesting things; some historical facts, some trivia, what are the must sees and so on. We were lucky enough to even see a swedish celebrity while on this tour! :) I can definitely recommend this tour to everyone as soon as possible after coming to the city:)
