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...

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

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
