Meet your local guide in Gamla Stan, Stockholm's old town, and set off on this walking tour of the city's oldest neighborhood. Wear sensible walking shoes suited for the cobblestone streets and bundle up; Stockholm's nights between November and March can be bitter. 

Walk down narrow alleyways and through tiny courtyards that most tourists and visitors never see. By the light of his lantern, your guide will entertain and horrify you with tales of poltergeists, plagues, public executions and murders. Experience the past brought back to life as you smell, taste and see what medieval Stockholm might have been like.

Great Fun!
, Feb 2020
Five of us went on the Stockholm Ghost Walk on the 11th of February and it was outstanding. I've taken several of these types of spooky tours in other cities and this was as good or better than any others I've ever been on. Our guide Callum (spelling?) was an excellent storyteller and he did a great job entertaining and informing the crowd and if you're lucky enough to get him as your guide, you'll have a great time. Highly recommended!!!
Perfect Guide

The Stockholm Ghost Walk - although more than a little chilly - was an absolutely amazing experience! The guide was knowledgeable about historical events, all while making the tour hilarious and easy to follow. You could clearly tell that he enjoys it just as much as the people listening! Highly recommend!

A fun, entertaining evening of history!

We elected to go on this evening tour on a whim. Having been on others before, we expected to hear about deaths and murders but more from a historical viewpoint. To our pleasure and surprise the tour was far more theatrical and entertaining. There was general banter between the patrons and guide, horribly funny dismissals of "free listeners", lil quips here and there, and spot on adlibs that made for an extremely fun evening as we ventured through the streets of Galma Stan. Our guide was Louis and I recommend him as your go to guide if you enjoy quick wit and some less polite humor that had us in stitches. Thank you very much, Louis!

Our guide, Louis, was wonderful. He wound our group through dark alleys and streets of Gamla Stan, pointing out locales of both historical and eerie significance. His knowledge and demeanor added greatly to our experience. It was a wonderful tour; well worth the cost.

We loved the Ghost Walk! It was very gripping and intertaining! We don't remember the name of the guide, but he was an Englishman. The only thing we didn't like is that the tour is cheaper if you pay cash at the beginning (it's 220 SEK) and it's more expensive if you book it online (290 SEK).

Thank you! Glad you liked our tour and guide (Calolm?) Regarding the price; if you buy it online on our website it is the same price as cash to the guide. We sell through several retail companies. We dont know what all of them charge unfortunately :-(
Well worth the time

It was an amazing tour. Cullen was super funny and interesting to watch, he took us to different places and told us stories. My only advise, is , go directly to the tour, it is cheaper than buying online.
