10:00 – Meet your guide at the exit gate of the port. In Stockholm there several terminals where cruise ships dock. If your cruise ship docks at the terminal closest to Stockholm centre, your tour will start right from the meeting spot. If it’s a more distantly located terminal, then it will take about 15 minutes to get to the centre and start your tour.
10:15-12:30 – walking tour of Stockholm city centre. Your tour guide will show you Gamla Stan (= the Old Town), you will see St. Nicholas Cathedral, Royal Palace, Old and New Parliament buildings, Noblemen committee, Riddarholmen (= Knight’s Island) and the Cathedral which serves as the burial vault of most noble families and the Swedish kings themselves.
12:30 – your guide will answer your questions and explain you how to return back to the port.
Free time in the city. Your guide will tell you about the options for lunch and shopping. Return back on board the ship on your own (the port terminals are within 15 minutes from the city centre).
