The bus tour was fine. Unfortunately we did not have enough time to go on the boat tour because of boarding our ship. As I recall the trip said 2 hours ( I could be wrong) so I relied on that info. It was in fact 3 and a half hours, hence the problem. Wish I could tell you about the boat.

Information about where to meet is inaccurate - I called Viator saying we would be on Holland America Eurodam and asking if the meeting place was close and was assured it was. Holland America NEVER goes to the port close to your meeting place and the taxi was very expensive. The tour was very interesting, but there was a 50 minute gap between the coach segment and the boat segment and again we had to take an expensive taxi back to our Holland America ship port.

Bus tour OK; then had to debark and line up for boat trip. A little odd way to do it. Boat trip was nice. Complaint: I had to walk around the square trying to find where the tour began. There were no clear directions. Thankfully I found a nice young tour guide who directed me to the right location at Gustav Adolfs Torg. You should be more specific about the exact address for start of tour. I know others who had same problem.

When we arrived to exchange our voucher for tickets on Sept. 15, we discovered that there was a half marathon taking place in the city core that afternoon and the 2:30 Grand Tour was cancelled. We were able to take the "Stockholm in a Nutshell tour" at 11 am which was shorter and cheaper. The on-site people were helpful in trying to work around the logistic nightmare of continuing tours in a city where streets are blocked and closed off and there is traffic gridlock. We had a partial tour on one route and then could switch to another route. This took additional time with the waiting involved. The canal/water tour portion of the tour was the best part of the package. Bottom line - Viator should have alerted anyone who had bought excursions for that day what was going on and offered a refund for the whole tour or for the difference in the cost of the tours. Viator should be aware of what is going on locally in a city that will affect the products they are selling.

tour was totally misleading. advertised 15 minute walk from the cruise terminal. was a hard fast 50 minute walk to get the coach tour. we decided to forego the boat tour in that we were afraid that we would miss the ship. Paid a taxi 25 eruos to get back to the ship. very disappointing. based on this experience would not book another viator tour online.
