The guide dressed in a frock coat, a cane and a hat immediately put us in the mood. He told us many disturbing stories about Stockholm in the Middle Ages, far from IKEA and Abba. All these anecdotes are punctuated with humor and a theatrical storytelling tone that make the visit thrilling and exciting!

Being fascinated with history, I wanted to join this tour to learn more about my new town and it did not disappoint! In 90 intense minutes, we covered close to 1000 years of history and juicy tidbits, narrated by our very colorful guide who clearly knows his town inside and out!

Good tour of Stockholm's old town with an excellent guide, we had a lot of fun! Unfortunately, my English isn't that good and I didn't understand everything because of the ambient noise. If the tour was in German, I would have given it 5 stars. You can definitely see parts of the old town that you don't get to see otherwise.
