Red Sightseeing: Stockholm Hop-On, Hop-Off Bus & Boat Tour

We were quite pleased with the results. It is, in my opinion, an absolute must to see Stockholm from the water. Contrary to what others have mentioned, we thought the station was an excellent choice because it was the only place where the hop on hop off boats really went. I would strongly suggest this journey if you want to see more of the world.
