A great way to spend a day!
Aug. 2020
This tour was exactly what we needed for our day trip from Stockholm.
My husband is Swedish, so we spend a lot of time there and like to find new things to see and do each time we visit. This time we decided to combine his interest in Viking history with my love for archaeology by booking the full day private viking tour. It ended up being a great experience. Our guide Jonathan was very knowledgeable and friendly, and we had a blast exploring Uppland with him.

Took a chance on this, was a significant highlight of my Scandinavian holiday.
Dec. 2019
We planned a week long tour of Sweden. Half of that time was planned and accounted for. A few days were not. While in Stockholm, we had a free, full day and I really wanted to spend it focused on a Viking experience. A few nights prior, I was looking through TripAdvisor and the pickings were slim (nearly non-existent). I almost gave up when I found a series of tours from Time Travel Tours with very few reviews.

The three hours tour was really too short and didn't go to Uppsala. The half day seemed like the best "value" but that wasn't available. Then there was the full day tour, however that came with what I felt was a hefty price tag. I almost didn't commit due to the cost but I really did want the "full package" to fill the full day. There were few reviews but seemed promising. One specifically mentioned how great Nadia was so there was hope. I committed.

As luck would have it, Nadia was assigned as our tour guide and the rest was history. She was so accommodating, so pleasant, so full of endless knowledge. She never ran out of interesting things to point out during the entire day. She added a great deal of personality to the tour. At the end of all of this, I really felt that she single handedly closed the very wide value-to-price gap that it started with and could have ended up remaining. The "private" aspect of the tour is what probably made the biggest difference. If we had to deal with even 2 other people during that entire day, it would have been significantly more frustrating.

My only complaint is with the tour vehicle itself. The wiper fluid was nauseatingly strong. The wipers themselves were quite worn. The door required a certain level of finesse which some travelers might have problems with. The seatbelts were in rough shape. It wasn't exactly a luxurious ride.

This tour ended up being one of the most memorable aspects of the 12-day holiday filled with many other activities and destinations.

Thank you, Nadia.

Great full day tour from Uppsala to Stockholm
Jul. 2019 • Family
Jonathan and Gabriel did a great job! We needed a transfer from Uppsala to Stockholm and they helped us turn it into a full day tour as well, including Viking sites, historic churches, rune stones, and Sigtuna. We would recommend them highly.

Outstanding Tour and Service
Jul. 2019 • Couples
Nadia was our guide yesterday for a private full-day Viking History Tour, and what a great guide she was! It was like having a close and extremely smart friend show us around the country. We were far out in the country, we don't even know where, but we do know we'd never find such places on a conventional bus tour. Nadia explained everything clearly and thus we learned a lot about the Vikings, their culture, and also about all of Swedish history. We also thank Nadia for accommodating our request to see the Royal Palace and fitting that into the overall schedule. It was a thoroughly enjoyable and educational day and well worth the time and money. Thank you!

Hi, good to hear that your mixed schedule that we was able to fix you worked out well. I will send this review to her so she knew it. I know she told my by phone later that you both where very kind and gentle people. /Jonathan
