Despite my chronically aching knee's disagreement with the cobblestones, this 2-hour walk was well worth it. The guide was entertaining and informative. I wish I could remember his name.

Hi, we wanted to join the Sunday tour at 1pm but the guide for the English tour didn‘t came, only the Spanish guide was available. Hope it was just an one-time-issue

Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen
Gamla Stan is Stockholm’s historic old town and home
to the Swedish Royal Palace. It’s the most central
island of Stockholm and accompanied by the small
island of Riddarholmen, mainly known for its famous
Riddarholm Church. Gamla Stan tends to be a bit
touristy at times but is definitely worth visiting:
take a stroll past the well-preserved buildings and
through the small (and also Sweden’s narrowest)

Right outside the Gamlastan metro station. Both the city and old town tours start from there. They offer AM and PM tours.
