Our Guide ( the charming scottsman, forgot his name) was great. We needed a while to get used to his kinda special way of speaking. But after that it was a blast. Especially for the kids that were there (they have to be old enough for quite gory stories though). Lots of audience participation and joking around. you really got the impression that he likes his role as mysterious storyteller, so the time with him just flies while exploring this beautiful old town.

The tour guide, Callum, was absolutely amazing. Such a character that made it a totally immersive experience. Couldn’t take my eyes or ears off him! Such amazing stories to tell.

very cool experience if you wish to learn more about Stockholm and do not like to be on a boring walking tour ;)

Great experience, Callum our guide was very entertaining and informative. would definitely recommend!

Great tour showing us the various sights of Oslo. Extremely knowledgeable guide.
