What To Expect

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.

Traveler Tips

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).
My only advise, is , go directly to the tour, it is cheaper than buying online.

Great Ghost Stories
BarryK_H, Mar 2023
We always love a ghost walk and this was no exception. E enjoyed the stories and the drama. He could have walked a bit slower though. Well done.
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Thank you!!!
Very entertaining!
Nancy_M, Jan 2023
This ghost walk was very good. I was worried it may be too scary but it wasn’t. It was spooky but not too scary. Our tour guide Callum was very entertaining & had a great delivery. I would recommend doing this tour if your visiting.

A must do on a visit to Stockholm
Marisa_G, Jan 2023
Our fabulous guide was Callum and what a great story teller and entertainer he was. A great way to start your evening in Stockholm with this walk with stories in old town. Can not recommend this enough. We did this with teenagers also and they loved it too.

Callum was a great tour guide, got into character really well - theatrical and fun! He involved the group and we got to hear about the darker side of Stockholm’s history!
Wonderfull Ghosttour
Andreas_S, Dec 2022

Gruesome history
Joseph_M, Dec 2022
You likely won’t see much in the way of paranormal activity, but fun walk. Good for gruesome history presented in a very theatric format😃 Callum was very entertaining!!
Great Fun
Des_B, Dec 2022
Callum, our Middle-aged Scottish guide with a dodgy knee ( His words) was funny throughout the walk. He encompassed all the 'guests' and kept us all amused. It was an easy walk despite the cobbled streets of Stockholm and we would happily recommend this 'Ghost' walk to anyone.
Comedy, history and horror all in harmony
Davis_Q, Nov 2022
My friend, who just moved to Stockholm, and I went on the tour and we loved it. It was a brilliant combination of history, comedy and horror/ghost stories. Highly recommend you check this tour out!

Julie_P, Nov 2022
Callum was an amazing story teller, I was entertained the whole time! He even includes audience involvement and brings a lot of humor to ghost stories.
Tales of horror
Rupert_N, Nov 2022
Seeing & hearing the tales - the host spoke quite quickly for the foreign guests as he had a strong English dialect
Response from Host, Nov 2022
Thank you!
Funny, factual and a little spooky
Kelsey_D, Nov 2022

Response from Host, Nov 2022
Thank you Kelsey_D! Glad you liked our tour and guide ;-)
mike_c, Sep 2022
Too many people on the tour and nothing unique about it. I was on a similar ghost tour in Edinburgh a few years back and that was very good and included access to areas not public. But this walking tour in Stockholm really just went around the tourist areas in the old town.
Response from Host, Oct 2022
So sad to hear that you thought our tour was Boring! Regarding access to areas not public, we have tried but we can not get permission to do that for our government. Sorry we could not satisfy you with that. Don´t now if you now Stockholm that good (specific the Old Town) but it is hard in that small island to go to some places that are not tourist areas. Sorry we could not satisfy you with that. We are the only tour that has access to an old crypt in the Old Town but you didn´t seem to like that. Sorry we could not satisfy with that either :-(
The crypt under the...

The crypt under the German church was scary and exciting. We liked the tour through streets we had not gone to before.
Response from Host, Sep 2022
Thank you!
Do not miss this!
Erika_P, Aug 2022
Our guide (Chris) was incredible. Funny, informative, all around excellent. A great story teller! The historical stories (the wars between Sweden and Denmark) the bloodbath, the narrowest alley in Stockholm….
Response from Host, Aug 2022
Thank you Erika_P! Glad you liked our tour and guide.
Had a ghostly good time.
Keith_K, Aug 2022
By far the best tour in Stockholm we’ve had yet. Our guide Calen was very entertaining, and made the tour extremely enjoyable.
A fun and entertaining evening!
Marianne_R, Aug 2022
A great evening of dark history! No ghosts, but great storytelling by Callum. He certainly knows how to engage the group. A interesting way to get more of Stockholm's history.
Response from Host, Aug 2022
Thank you! Glad you liked our dark history and guide.
Best tour guide EVER!
Emerson_H, Jul 2022
I have been on countless walking tours in many countries. This was hands down the best tour guide I have ever experienced! Not one moment was I disengaged. I held on to every word of each story and surprised over and over by her passion and enthusiasm! I would take this tour again and again and highly recommend!! Made SURE you book your tour with Myson (hope the spelling is correct) She is amazing and my favorite tour guide I’ve ever had.
Response from Host, Jul 2022
Thank you! So glad you liked our tour and guide (her name is Majsan, close enought ;-)
Tara_P, Jul 2022
Callum was awesome at telling all the stories. Thanks. I loved the audience participation and the walk was not strenuous at all.
Response from Host, Jul 2022
Thank you Tara_P!
If you do the ghost walk, ask for Cullum
Sophie_R, Jul 2022
It is really Cullum, who made it a great experience. He was perfect! The right mix of information, fun, suspense and excitement. He is a truly talented story teller.
Response from Host, Jul 2022
Thank you Sophie_R! Will ask for him next time ;-)
