Overall rating

With the 5-day pass, we made about fifteen visits to the city and the islands of Stockholm, without any problem. Just show the QR code of the pass at the entrance of each attraction. We estimate to have saved around 150€. We also bought a 7-day SL pass, largely amortized with the countless bus/metro/tram/train journeys required for these visits. This pass consists of a QR code on the phone, to be presented to the automatic readers present in all means of transport in Stockholm. We bought these 2 passes on the go city and SL websites from France before leaving. Everything worked perfectly, it's practical we were able to go to Sweden with peace of mind :-)

We had the all inclusive 45+ pass for 3 days and since we were in Stockholm in early October we were able to take full advantage of it. Even if some seasonal attractions were no longer bookable, we were able to save a lot compared to regular admissions. On the other hand, we never had longer waiting times or crowded activities. In combination with the weekly ticket from SL (local public transport) brilliant and highly recommended.

Excellent tour guide and driver. Virginia and David were delightful and knowledgeable.

amazing.worth to buy for 3 days great experience around city
