I´ve done this tour in Gamla Stan, with Renata, the owner. It was raining and I was the only one that showed up. Even then she was there, with her umbrella and the same energy to tell me all the stories and places from Gamla Stan. She is sweet, knows the place very well, tells you the story in such... More

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

Renata has that rare skill of imparting knowledge through stories and with great enthusiasm and love for her home town of Stockholm. My wife and I had a great tour today, the time seemed to fly, the enthusiasm was infectious and the ability to switch from Swedish to English to German to French seemed effortless. You'll be more than happy... More

Renata took a group of 8 on the panoramic tour of Stockholm this past weekend as soon as we arrived, to get a feel for the city. She gave us a great overview of the city and its character, with interesting historical elements included. The best part was the most unpredictable - we were caught in the Old Town not... More

I was looking for a quality guided tour of the Old Town, and found this on Tripadvisor. We came across the starting place (office) at the appointed time on a Sunday afternoon, and almost didn't notice that the office was open where we found Renata. It turned out there were only 2 of us on this tour, so it ended... More

We visited Stockholm for a few days in June and decided to explore the Old Town joining an Old Town Story Walk offered by stoRy touRs. They have an office in the heart of the Old Town, so it was easy to find. It is where the guide waited for us. We also bought there an Archipelago tour, another attraction... More

My wife and 18 year old son and I had a truly fascinating half day tour of the old city of Stockholm with Marina. She was extremely knowledgeable, and very accommodating with the itinerary to make sure we covered our areas of interest. Our son is a bit of a history buff and was able to have in-depth conversations with... More

I found Renata and Storytours on Trip Advisor and emailed her directly to set up a 4-hour tour of Stockholm. She is a lovely person and very knowledgeable about the Vasa Museum and Gamla Stan, which were the main attractions we wanted to visit. We were traveling with another couple, so we arranged a private car to pick us up;... More

Nice tour around the old city. It was almost a private one since our group was only 3. Renata told us many stories we never would have known of if we had only read a touristic book. We really enjoyed the complete 75 minutes!
