Stockholm and Sweden
elucidation of histories untold

The blue tour

The “Blue Tour” is one of the most diversed tours, offered by StockholMania Tours. This tour combines the classic and modern history of Stockholm, presenting the very gist of the city, its everyday life, but also its history, traditions and customs. 

The “Blue Tour” includes guided walks through the different city districts of Stockholm. While walking from one district to another you’ll get to discover the differences in characteristics that distinguish them from each other, and other curiosities that only city residents, such as us, have knowledge about. And then, for travel between the different sites, we use only public transportation– as to ad to the feel of experiencing the city in an authentic and direct way. 

The “Blue Tour” also include a guided visit to the Drottningholm Palacethe residence of the current Royal Family, located outside the city center. The serenity while at the site will serve as a welcome respite and a contrast to the buzzling city life. With its lush Royal Garden and grand architectural design, it has been inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List and is therefor a must see during a stay in Stockholm.

Our “Blue Tour” is truly suitable for everyone: couples, families with children, groups of friends and larger groups. The tour is also optimized for cruise passengers making a stop in Stockholm during a Baltic cruise. 

To automatically calculate the price of the tour fill out the form on this page. Already included in the price is the entrance fee to the Drottningholm Palace and tickets for the public transportation we will use for traveling between the sites.

PROGRAM

  • Metro Tour, explore Stockholms metro stations: The Stockholm metro is known for being the longest art gallery in the world: in fact, there are so many stations that have been decorated, withever-changing themes, by contemporary artists. In addition, some of these stations were literally carved out of the rock: hence they got their nicknamecave-stations.We will make a stop at a selection of the most interesting and iconic ones.
  • Guided walk through the historical city center of Stockholm, The Old Town or Gamla Stan: one of the best-preserved medieval quarters in the world, the very cradle of the city and-in many respects-of Sweden as a whole. During the tour we will walk through the picturesque cobblestone alleys, pass by the main buildings and monuments, and get a glimpse of some hidden corners and symbols
  • Lunch: at a trusted restaurant or bar will be recommended according to preferences.
  • Guided walk through the City Center: Straddling the districts of Norrmalm and Östermalm is the busiest area of the Swedish capital: offices, stores, malls, markets. But also theaters, parks and much more. Here we will discover one of the less touristy and moreeveryday” parts of Stockholm. We will also visit the Hötorget covered market.
  • Guided tour of the Drottningholm Palace: Also refered to as a Swedish Versailles in miniature, along with its 18th-century theater and manicured Baroque and English gardens, it has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1991. This is the private residence of Sweden’s King Carl XVI Gustaf.
