Private Nobel Museum and City Hall

Departing from the pier with your professional guide, you will make a short drive to the Old Town. Enjoy a guided walk through the medieval part of the city on your way to the Nobel Museum. Alfred Nobel was born in Stockholm, Sweden, in 1833. His ancestors included a technical genius during the 17th century, when Sweden was a great power in northern Europe. As well as being fluent in several languages, Nobel was also very interested in social and peace-related issues. Upon his death in 1896, he left his fortune to fund the Nobel Prizes. Since 1901, the Nobel Prize has been awarded to honorees every year on December 10, the date of Alfred Nobel's death. The Nobel Museum illustrates a century of creativity. You will be able to follow the changes of the 20th century through the Nobel Prize and the Laureates. Explore the work and the ideas of more than 700 creative minds presented through short films, original artifacts and computer presentations.

You will then walk back out of the Old Town and rejoin your transportation for an informative drive to Djurgarden, passing places connected to Alfred Nobel along the way.

On arrival at City Hall, your guide will take you for a tour of this imposing landmark. Known locally as Stadshuset, it is renowned for its architecture and murals. City Hall's Blue Hall and Golden Room are also revered as the venues for annual Nobel Prize banquets and festivities. Adding even more splendor to the Golden Room's atmosphere are its nearly 18 million gilded mosaics depicting Swedish history. At the end of your tour, you will be transferred back to the pier.

ABOUT US
Shore Excursions Group was created with one goal in mind: to provide exceptional travel experiences to cruise passengers in the ports they visit around the world. To accomplish this, we have compiled an exceptional array of tours delivered by local experts with decades of experience serving travelers and delivering excellent tours. Our owners and management team are comprised of seasoned travel industry executives who leverage their considerable experience to deliver memories of a lifetime.

We are experts in providing exceptional shore excursions. We understand that in today's fast paced world, vacations have become an increasingly important way to relax, reconnect with family and friends, and experience new and interesting places. With this in mind, we provide the highest quality tours by performing extensive research, and detailed reviews. While other companies also offer excursions, we strongly believe our expertise and approach set us apart. The large cruise lines sell shore excursions - typically in very large groups visiting high traffic sites. We focus on smaller groups visiting more interesting and authentic locations using more personalized local operators. While the cruise lines are experts in delivering cruises, we are experts in delivering shore excursions.

Our Approach
We believe quality service is not only highly valued by customers, but ultimately leads to better experiences and higher satisfaction. Unlike the cruise lines and other tour companies that rely almost entirely on websites, we encourage customers to call us. We want to invest our time answering your questions, providing input, and selecting the excursions that best meet your needs.

Our Tours
Our goal is to provide customers a wide array of exciting, appealing, and enriching tours. For those customers who prefer to travel in smaller groups with more personalized service, we offer a wide variety of small group tours around the world. These tours generally range in size from 2-12 people compared to larger tours which can number up to 50 people. While exploring the destinations and ports on this website, feel free to search for these "Small Group Tours". For those customers interested in private tours, we offer many outstanding excursions that allow you to travel with your party alone and, in many cases, to fully customize your tour. Search for "Private Tours" if you are interested in this experience. Our "Scenic" tours provide up close and personal access to some of the most spectacular natural environments on Earth from majestic glaciers in Alaska to spectacular reefs in the Caribbean. Our "Cultural" tours allow customers to experience local customs, entertainment and culinary delights ranging from tribal dances in Alaska to an outstanding local meal in Santorini, Greece. Our "Active" tours offer a multitude of exciting and adventurous ways to experience our destinations. Our customers can kayak the turquoise waters of the Caribbean, hike to a spectacular waterfall in Hawaii, or bicycle through quaint villages in France. Our "City" tours allow travelers to see the highlights of great cities around the world with unique insights provided by our expert tour guides.

Our People
In our experience, exceptional travel experiences are almost always delivered by exceptional people. With that in mind, we utilize a comprehensive approach to select and employ the leading tour guides and tour providers around the globe.
