Great tour with lots of information

Renata our guide was such a nice and friendly person. Her german is great. She was funny, the stories were never boring and she showed us everything you must have seen in Gamla Stan also the "little" things. She also gave us clues about special places and told us about the life in sweden. I totally recommend the tour.

GREAAAAT as always!!!!!

Can't get any better than this, we were already excited leading up to the tour, and since there were only 4 participants of course we got the chance to ask a lot of questions. Our guide, Renater, spoke excellent German. We always book tours with GETYOURGUIDE and haven't had bad luck yet, so we aren't even considering any other providers. Best, B:Martens

Informative, varied tour with our professional guide, Renata

The four of us were lucky enough to enjoy a very nice and informative tour of Stockholm's old city with Renata. Unfortunately it went by far too quickly. You get a great overview of the historical background. We took note of the useful 'insider tips', and followed them as far as we were able. Thanks very much!
