The young instructor assigned to us was clearly new and finished our briefing in 5mins. However, for a later batch, a senior guy gave detailed and correct instructions. But, there's nothing to worry, the learning curve isn't too steep. We initially went round in circles for first few minutes. But, soon figured out ourselves how to go forward and steer. Excellent guidance on route selection and help in getting in and out of the kayak by the other staff members. Remember to carry water to drink on the kayak, you will get thirsty. 2 hours is more than adequate to do a full circuit of both Långholmen and the smaller Reimersholme islands. The route is quite beautiful especially in the smaller canal sections. A waterproof action camera or case for your smartphone is highly recommended for taking pictures along the way. If the weather's good, there will be lot of private boats creating waves. Be wary of those! We almost got turned over by a big one! Happy Kayaking!
Overall a really nice tour. It’s a bit sad that most of the time stuff on the right side is mentioned. Since we were sitting on the left side it was a bit sad that all of the tour the only mentioned like 4 things on the left side. So that's the reason to lower the source to 4 stars. Everything else when really smooth.
Amazing tour, such a unique way to see the city. Had a very good instructor who catered for beginners and experienced kayakers, who was very friendly. Would highly recommend
Very good introductory tour to Stockholm history and current events. Amazing guide! A true optimist that expected us to remember street and people's names in Swedish - lol.
It was fine. An average boat tour, but we had to wait in line a while before to get seats that would allow us to see any of the sights.
