Meet your local guide in Gamla Stan, Stockholm's old town, and set off on this walking tour of the city's oldest neighborhood. Wear sensible walking shoes suited for the cobblestone streets and bundle up; Stockholm's nights between November and March can be bitter. 

Walk down narrow alleyways and through tiny courtyards that most tourists and visitors never see. By the light of his lantern, your guide will entertain and horrify you with tales of poltergeists, plagues, public executions and murders. Experience the past brought back to life as you smell, taste and see what medieval Stockholm might have been like.

Ghost Tour in Stockholm (with warning)
Francis_K
, Aug 2021
Enjoyed a walk around Gamla Stan (Old Town) in Stockholm listening to a bit of history and a story here and there. I live here but was with some visitors and it was a worthwhile experience. Tour guide, Scotsman Calum, was a fun guy and dolloped out a bit of amateur theatre on the tour, in an enjoyable fashion. The only negative was we booked through Viator whilst my friend booked directly. Viator take about a third extra in "booking fee" or whatever, left a sour taste, so we paid 280 kronor, my friend 220. Not good. Please avoid and book directly with organiser. Worthwhile tour.
