Renata is a lovely guide who enthralled us with her vast knowledge of the history--and amusing anecdotes--of Gamla Stan/Old Town Stockholm. She is lively but set an easy pace for a 90 minute walking tour & allowed us to set the start time (& gelato breaks). She augments her narration with pictures & documents to explain Viking runes, construction details... More

I was on a Princess Baltic Cruise so we had limited time. We booked with "stoRy tours" rather than with the Princess Excursion. Renata (the owner) met us up at Nynasham Port and led us to Leslie, who took us to Stockholm by private car and driver. There were only 2 of us booked, so it was a "private tour"... More

Thank you Renata for sharing your grant knowledge with me! It was a pleasure to walk on the centuries old streets of Stockholm with you meanwhile sharing all stories of the city. Personally I prefer smaller, familiar tours and this was just exactly what I wanted! No big crowd of people, personalized tour with special care! Thank you again, I... More

If you only have a day to visit Stockholm, Renata is the person to show you around. We had a great time visiting the Vasa, the Drottningholm Palace, and Gamla Stan (the Old Town), as well as sites in between. She is personable, extremely knowledgeable, and sensitive to the interests and issues of her clients. My wife and I had... More

Our "Gamla Stan" tour experience with stoRy touRs could not be better. The guide picked us up at our Hostel. She was super on time and patient (we were many and had problems to get going). Most of the participants in my group were German, so the guide was conducted in German. This was something my group really appreciated (I,... More

We did the Christmas stoRy touR on our first evening in Stockholm. A great introduction to Gamla Stan and to the history of the city. We visited some places that we would never have found ourselves and were told lots of little interesting stories that are not in the guidebooks. The food and drinks breaks were a nice respite from...

Renata was extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic. She was excellent at highlighting the main attractions but also some smaller attractions in small alleyways that other tours would most likely miss out. She was also very helpful with regards to recommending other distant attractions in the city. The walking tour of Gamla stan was excellent and I will definitely return to Stockholm... More
