About
If you think you've seen it all and heard it all in Stockholm, think again. This guided walking tour sheds new light (and a little darkness) on Stockholm's oldest neighborhood. As you follow the lantern light of your guide through the cobblestoned streets and alleyways, hear tales of ghosts, murder, and horror while getting a deeper insight into the history of Sweden's capital.

Highlights

What to expect
  • In the early evening, make your way to the meeting point in Stockholm's Old Town (Gamla stan). Comfortable walking shoes and warm clothing (especially during the winter) are recommended. Meet your guide who, by the light of their lantern, leads you through tight alleyways, up narrow staircases, across cobblestoned streets, and through cozy courtyards—places that few other tourists see. Along the way, your guide delights and horrifies with tales of plagues, executions, murders, and, of course, ghosts. Part entertainment and part history tour, the past is brought vividly to life as you stroll the streets of Stockholm uncovering its tightly held secrets. Your tour concludes in the center of Old Town.

Engrossing tour with Callum as the guide. Scary, entertaining and educational at the same time. Very knowledgable, and everyone was thalled and by the stories while navigating the dark alleyways of Gamle Stan. Many thanks Callum!

A very entertaining tour of the old town of Stockholm from a completely different perspective. The guide, Callum, is very funny and the tour is a pleasant way to spend two hours in the town center during your visit. Warning: this is not a traditional sight seeing tour; if you want to learn something about Stockholm's history, architecture, or culture pick another tour :-) Warning #2: some of the stories are full of gory details; not recommended for smaller children.

Unfortunately, we were a group of approx. 30-40 people, which is way too big. 50% of the time I couldnt hear the guide, which actually did a good job.
but the price is way to high, I'd say 10 euros would be ok for what we got. Would not do it again!

Often we are sold out and the group size goes up to around 20-35 people. Our guides have no problem to be heard. You might have gone closer to the guide so you heard him better (or perhaps you were a little too scared of him :-o

Really fun tour to take. Callum was absolutely wonderful with his delivery of the ‘scarier’ side of Stockholm. Surprisingly informative, but keep in mind that a lot of the stories revolve around legends and myths as well. Would definitely recommend as a great activity for after sundown!
