Day 1  Stockholm
Upon arrival, meet your driver at the airport. Private transfer to your hotel; check in, then time at leisure. Stockholm, one of the most beautiful capitals in the world, is built on 14 islands, and connected by 57 bridges. With 750 years of history and rich cultural life, Stockholm offers a wide selection of world class museums and attractions, most of which can be reached on foot.

Day 2  Morning Or Afternoon  Privately Guided Sightseeing Tour - 4hrs
You can choose to take this privately guided tour in the morning or afternoon. A car, driver and guide, plus hotel pick-up and drop-off are all included.

Your panoramic sightseeing tour passes many landmarks including the Royal Palace, Parliament Buildings and Djurgården Island, home to various historical buildings and monuments, as well as Skansen open-air museum. The Old Town (Gamla Stan), with its narrow cobbled streets and numerous antique shops is also seen. As the Stockholm archipelago extends from here, the city’s waterways are never too far in the distance. The tour also includes entrance to the one of the most magnificently decorated buildings, the Stadshuset (City Hall). The Blue Hall is the setting for the world famous Nobel Prize banquet each year, while the Golden Hall sees the prestigious ball which is held afterwards.

Day 3  Drottningholm Palace And Chinese Pavilion Privately Guided Tour
You can choose to take this privately guided tour in the morning or afternoon. A car, driver and guide, plus hotel pick-up and drop-off are all included.

Situated on an island in one of Lake Mälaren’s small inlets is UNESCO Listed Drottningholm Palace, its vast grounds and a Chinese Pavilion. En-route, pass through Södermalm and Stockholm’s western area. As Sweden’s best-preserved royal castle, built in the 1600’s, it is also a fantastic representation of European architecture of that time. Your visit includes entrance to the magnificently decorated State Apartments and time in the beautiful French- and English-style landscaped gardens, as well as the Chinese Pavilion. This remarkable treasure was built in the mid-1700’s, when Chinoiserie was the height of European fashion and today, it houses one of the finest remaining examples of such an interior. The return journey takes a scenic route through the Royal island of Lovon and crosses the western bridge spanning Riddarfjärden, for extensive views over Stockholm’s skyline.
