What To Expect

Your trip to Sweden would not be complete without the visit to Birka, a UNESCO World Heritage site and the very first city on Sweden.

Once the country’s most important trading center, today, the city is a live museum of Viking culture and history. Go on a guided tour of the area, visit the Viking Museum, and Viking Village and learn how the Vikings spent their days. Complete the trip with a hearty lunch and make sure to take plenty of photos to remember your trip back in time.

    About two hours by boat, it is more like a natural park after arrival. There is no picture in the event or experience. I feel quite disappointed. After inquiring about the on-site staff, the activities and experiences in the pictures are only for a specific number of months in a year. It is recommended that the relevant time be listed on the website.

    This event hopes to open a Chinese tour. The tour along the way is really great. Unfortunately, Asians are really too few. If there are more Chinese guides, there will be more Asians who are pursuing knowledge. The scenery is beautiful, and the guide Anton also speaks very clearly and vividly~ I will recommend friends who have good English skills to participate~

    During this visit to Kabil City, the scenery along the way was very beautiful. The tour explained the details. It was a pity that the village couldn't enter the house. It was a little disappointed with the pictures on the website. If you can, if you can, you can open up the Chinese tour. It is a pity that Asians cannot know such a great place because of limited language.
