Your tour begins as you board your motorcoach for a relaxing drive through the Swedish countryside before reaching the city limits of Stockholm. From medieval to modern, this tour may be the perfect introduction to Sweden and its capital.

Relax on a panoramic tour covering many of the main sights of the city. Cross the medieval Old Town, the Gamla Stan, and pass the Royal Palace overlooking Stockholm's inner harbor.

Continue through the city center, passing the Royal Dramatic Theatre, and along Strandvägen to the island of Djurgården -- Stockholm's amusement and recreation center with great parklands and museums.

You'll visit the Vasa Museum, housing the Swedish warship Vasa -- built to be among the world's largest and most prestigious warships. The museum is literally built around the 17th-century warship, which sank in Stockholm's inner harbor on her maiden voyage in 1628. Salvaged in 1961 and today restored to much of her former glory, the Vasa is an astonishing piece of living history.

Drive through the Diplomat area and through Östermalm -- a fashionable neighborhood of stately apartment buildings, to the modern shopping and business areas. You'll cross the Western Bridge offering extensive views of the city skyline and head up to Fjällgatan for a stunning view over Stockholm before returning to Nynäshamn .
