Gamla Stan is an amazingly beautiful display of a medieval town with colourful buildings and steeped in history. I was lucky enough to be a one-man tour this day and Elva (?spelling) was incredible. Her knowledge of the local area, history, cuisine were just what I was looking for. We had a fabulous stroll through the cobble stone streets and down the main thoroughfare of Gamla Stan while she told many stories of the rich history and culture of Sweden I highly recommend this tour!

The tour is informational and lets you acquaint yourself with old town. Our guide Sofia was very helpful and provided a lot of info. However there are not too many points of interest in the tour, it can easily be extended towards the Opera building for example. Good tour but expensive for what it provides. Sofia also showed us the way to the train station and gave us a lovely dinner recommendation ( Trattoria Michaelangelo) where we really enjoyed the food. Thanks Sofia!

Kiki was awesome! I’m so glad I booked this tour on my first day in Stockholm. I ended up being the only one in the group so it was awesome to be able to interact with Kiki 1:1. She knows so much about the city and taught me a lot about the history of the Nordic region - a topic which I knew very little about. Also, her explanations of the geography of the old town helped me find my way around easily when I went back the next day. I recommend this tour!
