Very nice tour to Drottingholm - beautiful and serene. Would have been nice to have a guide human or recorded provide some historic information during the cruise to the castle. The castle was beautiful, and I'm glad that I went guide or no guide.
Boat to palace was so full, the day was especially hot and everyone was packed like sardines in the limited outdoor space. Palace was pretty but you don't really need more than an hour there. If you want to stay longer, pack a picnic and eat outside in the gardens. Boat back was great!
