Description

Discover the historical elegance of "Original Stockholm," more commonly known as Old Town or Gamla Stan! You'll be amazed at the gorgeous Royal Palace, still standing tall (and in excellent condition!) since its first construction back in 1754. We'll wander through the narrow, twisting alleys and cobblestone streets...where it's not uncommon to smell yummy oven-roasted ham and ginger cookies baking in the kitchens of little Swedish grandmas.

As you stroll along with your guide, you'll savor the romantic atmosphere and sense the amazing antiquity in buildings dating from the 16th to 19th centuries with baroque doorways and regal coats of arms. You'll also see the Stortorget (Great Square)--the hub of Old Town, dominated by the old Stock Exchange, and today home of the Nobel Museum and the Swedish Academy, which meets each year to decide the Nobel Prize for Literature.

We'll continue with a relaxing drive through the city center of Stockholm and onto the Nordic Sea Hotel, where the world's first permanent icebar is located.

The interior of the icebar is kept at a temperature of -5 degrees Celsius year-round. The entire interior, including the glasses, are made of pure, clear ice from the Tome River in Northern Sweden. In order to keep you comfortable, we provide all of our guests with warm fur ponchos and gloves before entering.

A vodka drink will be served in an ice glass and the staff will tell you more about the bar, as well as its construction.

In Cozumel we enjoyed the snorkeling that we did off a catamaran. The staff was friendly, very professional, and helpful with my first time snorkeling daughter. Grand Cayman we went to sting ray city with a trip and snorkeling. Staff and trip was amazing, crew very helpful and fun. in Jamaica we did a Dunn's River Falls excursion and private beach. We had fun but were not impressed with the staff, and their timeliness (waited around alot),

Traveling into Russia can be nerve-wracking (and getting more so every day) -- but ShoreTrips made it easy by providing all of the paperwork and instructions, as well as organizing good guides.
