Our guide was excellent. Lots of fun and very informative. The tour lasted about 2 hours but was only about 2 kms of walking so it wasn’t too far. I would do it again.

We had the best time with Phillip during the Old Towne Stockholm tour. It was a nice pace, perfect amount of time, beautiful day, beautiful city and Phillip tailored our tour based on our interest. He had interesting stories and facts about the city. Even my Swedish husband learned more about Sweden and Stockholm history.

The title says it all. That was down to the tour guide.

Sarah was everything that one should expect from a tour guide. She was enthusiastic, energetic and incredibly knowledgeable. Add to that, that she was able (comfortably) to conduct the tour in both German and English and you will appreciate how pleasant a walk through the old town was.

The tour started at an oak tree and ended at the Riksdag. There was also time for a fika in the middle. I definitely recommend the kanelbulle at Bröd & Salt. Though I may well have a mild addiction to them (now) thanks to Sarah.

I could go into specifics on the tour, that would spoil the tour though. I'll just leave pictures.

This tour was an excellent way to spend at least 2 hours of time (may have been closer to 3) in Stockholm. The old town is beautiful and Sarah enhanced the enjoyment with her added knowledge.

I love the Scandinavian architecture around Stockholm!!! The colorful building s are especially cute and the shoppes sell quality products-one of my favorite places to shop! Even thrift shops have outstanding quality items people actually visit the Stockholm thrift shops as part of their vacay.

Dara is an excellent guide, bringing to life Stockholm's old town's history on our two-hour tour, showing its hidden corners, whilst happily answering all our questions. We learned so much in a short time and it helped to set the scene for our further independent exploration of the city. Highly recommended.

First, beware that it takes an hour to get to Stockholm from the port! No one tells you this. You have to make arrangements to get to town. Cabs are very expensive and the Hop on/off bus is too. We chose the bus- better deal.
We ran late and our guide agreed to still meet us, which we greatly appreciated.The meeting point was difficult to find. Even locals weren’t sure where it was. Not sure why a more convenient, notable meeting place can’t be found.
Our guide, from Serbia, was nice and friendly. However, she did not share a lot of history of the region. We walked around to several high points and this was all she seemed to be able to share. Also, she ended the tour 20 minutes early. Compared to the other walking tours on this trip, this one was definitely disappointing.

Didn't need a tour -- walked all over the area without a guide and had a marvelous time
There is plenty of information in books about the area and it's very easy to find your own way around. We had several days in the area so we became pretty familiar with the area and could probably show others around now -- it was really fun
