Fab old town tour

We were really lucky to have Alicia as our guide - she was knowledgeable and fun, so the tour wasn't just about historical facts. The tour covered the likes of Nobel Museum and important churches, as well as less known places like the statue of the Iron Boy. Alicia gave us insight into the history of Stockholm/Sweden as well as some fun bits that made us laugh. I thoroughly enjoyed the 90 mins tour - very much recommendable!

Kevin was the most fantastic guide. Not only does he really know a lot about Stockholm (and clearly loves the place), he has that rare gift of being able to really communicate that information - and enthusiasm - in a brilliant and entertaining way. Can’t recommend this tour highly enough.

A very informative tour!

A very informative tour! Our guide provided a good balance between historical Stockholm, combined with insides on life in Sweden today. We would have never seen so much of the old town, would we have exploded by ourselves. I’ve booked this trip for my 80 year old parents together with my 10-year-old daughter and my husband and we all found it extremely enjoyable. I would always recommend it!
