If you are spending a day or longer in the Swedish city of Malmo you may be considering some tour options. In this post I want to share my hand-picked selection of the best Malmo tours on the market and compare the pros and cons of each as well as detailing what each tour can offer you.

 

get your guide logoI have chosen tours by Get Your Guide. This is a company I have used in the past and highly recommend. I find taking tours an excellent way to learn about the history and culture of a destination. Get Your Guide has an excellent range of tours all over the world with the tours in Europe receiving excellent reviews.  Booking is easy with no booking fees. If you need to cancel your tour up to 24 hour before they offer peace of mind with most tours fully refundable (though do check individual bookings as some some may incur penalties)

 

Things to consider when choosing your ideal tour

  • First of all look at where the tour starts. Would you prefer transport from Copenhagen to Malmo included in the tour or are you planning to travel independently to the Swedish city?
  • How long would you like to spend on the tour? Would you like an all day tour or a shorter tour to get a taste of the city and identify areas to visit independently.
  • Do you want to experience the tour with others are would you prefer a more tailor-made private option?
  • Would you prefer a walking tour, cycling or  perhaps a boat trip?
  • Would you like a tour where you are able to explore more of Denmark or Sweden on the way to Malmo?
  • And lastly consider what is included or excluded from the tour?

Tips to make the best of your tour

  • Wear comfortable shoes particularly for the walking/cycling tours.
  • If you are visiting Malmo during the colder months wrap up warmly. In summer bring a pashmina or extra layer just in case there is a change in temperature.
  • Meet at the indicated meeting point at least 10 minutes in advance of the tour.
  • Don’t forget your a water bottle especially in summer.
  • Printed or a mobile voucher is accepted.
  • Note that the walking and cycling tours are held rain or shine, unless you are notified of changes in advance.
  • If for any reason you need to cancel there is a full refund if you do so up to 24 hours in advance of your booking
  • Don’t forget your camera
  • Don’t forget your passport
