Your guide, well-seasoned in public transportation, will meet you with excitement. This is the first public transportation tour offered with a licensed guide that we know of. Your guide will help you purchase your museum and PTS pass before boarding your first mode of transportation--a bus!

The famous Vasa Museum is your first stop and your guided tour will fascinate you as it does every visitor. The story of one of the greatest military disasters in Swedish history is hard to imagine. After 15 minutes of her maiden voyage, the greatest warship ever to have sailed in the Baltic Sea capsized and sank like a stone. Equipped with 64 cannons dispersed over only two battery decks, she was simply too top heavy. A disaster at the time, but an intriguing story in the present, this unique opportunity to travel back in time is a must.

So captivating is this story that you might have forgotten how you are traveling to your next stop, but focus your mind on the next form of transportation--a tram ride with traditional electric cars from the 1940s!

On your scenic drive towards the City Hall, you'll pass some of Stockholm’s most famous sights: the imposing panoramic view of Fjällgatan, the Old Town with the Royal Palace, the National Museum of Fine Arts, the exclusive NK department store, the Opera House, and the famous Royal Dramatic Theatre, just to mention a few. With your licensed guide along, you'll receive information as you ride through the area and no doubt meet a few of the Swedish riders that will be sitting nearby.

To continue your tour goal of a visit to City Hall, you'll be changing from the tram to the subway. Your route is the blue line, the most decorated of all the subway lines in the city. Making your way to the start of the subway is half the fun, and riding it is the other half!

You have reached your destination now, which is the city center housing the City Hall and a guided tour of the building, at least the portion you are allowed to view. Hearing about government in other countries is always interesting, particularly this one, as people are genuinely happy here!

Using your feet this time, you'll go with your guide on a short 15-minute walk to the center of Stockholm and this relaxed walk will continue for about a half an hour as you become familiar with this Old Town of Stockholm. You'll walk through the oldest parts of Stockholm and learn about the Coronation Church, the Cathedral, and the winding medieval alleys in the heart of the city before your guide will let you discover the city on your own.

At the end of the tour, your guide will give you tips on where to eat and shop and show you how to get back to the pier, faciliated by the maps you received from him/her at the beginning of the tour.

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),
