    The tour was on a rainy day at the end of December and consisted only of me and my girlfriend and another couple. However, the walk and guide were excellent. Compelling stories were told about the Old Town and we thoroughly enjoyed it. A bit expensive for 1-2 hours walking around (depending on the group size), but still recommendable to do when you're in Stockholm.

    The guide was so lovely and the tour was excellent, I’m glad we did it at the beginning of our holiday as it made our visit much more enjoyable. We had a better understanding of Sweden and it’s surroundings. We went back to interesting places talked about on our tour. Would highly recommend

    THANK YOU SO MUCH for my private tour! We were only two people (the guide & me) and I enjoyed it very much. I had a lot of fun, as my guide was quite charming, knew a lot of things about the city and made a joke or two about the places we've been. I only had € in my pocket, which is why I couldn't give you a tip. BUT THANK YOU SO SO MUCH! 10/10 would recommend. Kind regards from the austrian girl! (:
