We did a walking tour of the historic Stockholm old town quarter Gamla Stan. Our guide was excellent and I am bummed that neither my husband nor I can remember her name. I'll blame it on jetlag. Our guide's English was excellent, her knowledge of the history and interesting sights within Gamla Stan and surrounding area were top-notch, and her additional tips on things to see while in Stockholm were spot-on. We took her up on two of her suggestions (the National Museum and the Medieval Museum) and they were both time well-spent. She was very nice, to boot. I also liked how easy it was to arrange a tour. The StoRytouRs website was very user friendly. You pick what time and date you want and you're all set. Our guide was waiting for us on the steps of the Nobel Museum and we headed off together for a terrific tour.

As 2018 comes to a close, I am looking back at great memories of the year, especially the wonderful 2018 Baltic cruise I took. I was remiss in not reviewing sooner the guided tour in Stockholm that launched our fantastic vacation. It was the Stockholm stoRy Tour with our guide, Kirsi. I am someone who thoroughly researches in advance my planned trips and excursions, and I knew this tour fit the bill. It began with a guided walk through the cobbled streets of Gamala stan and the interesting history and architecture of the Old Town. One aspect of the tour that was a selling point was the guided tour of the Royal Place; other tours seemed to give you tickets and let you fend for yourself once inside. Our guide whisked us past the crowds, ushered inside, and guided us through the many highlights in the Palace. Later we took a ferry to the island of Djurgarden to visit Vasa Museum and we enjoyed the fascinating tales our guide shared of the Vasa warship. Here and throughout our tour, we marveled at the depth of knowledge our guide possessed. And, here is the icing on the cake-- the two of us had our guide Kirsi all to ourselves! That's my stoRy Tour story. Highly recommended!

Renata is the perfect guide. We had a great time exploring the city under the informative and friendly guidance of a Stockholm local. She showed us all the major sights, adjusted the tour to our needs and answered all our question.
We enjoyed every step of the tour.

Our guide really knew her stuff, especially about the Royal Family. We were treated to many sights, historical tidbits and stories that are important in Stockholm, as well as two of the big attractions, the Royal Palace and the Vasa Museum. Wear comfortable shoes and be ready for a non-stop tour including a ferry ride.

My wife n I both were very impressed with how Renata handle our private tour. When she picked us up in the hotel, she explain in detail our itinerary and even she offers extra boat tour which at the beginning we kind of unsure whether to take it or not. Luckily we were blessed to have such a very good weather in Stockholm;therefore, we agreed to take the boat tour.

The private tour started by walking to the Beautiful City Hall of Stockholm (we stayed in Sheraton which apparently the City Hall was just across the street) and then were picked up by a Mercedes Benz Van which is very clean and with a friendly driver as well.
Then we were dropped at the beautiful lake to continue with our boat tour.

To my surprise the boat tour actually was a beautiful solar panel boat and were only fit in privately for Me and My Wife plus Renata n Thomas the friendly boat owner, very private...Apparently it was really a good choice to follow Renata’s suggestion to alter our initial tour program with to include the boat tour at no additional cost. This boat tour really showed us Stockholm from different view which we wouldn’t be able to see from the land...plus we rode an exclusive solar boat ( I included our pix taken with Thomas n the solar boat)

After the boat tour, back to the Benz and Renata took us drove to the high spot of Stockholm to see the panoramic view of Stockholm. Then our journey continue to exploring Gamla Stan old town, which she brought us to the narrowest street and the smallest statue as well n finishing up at the Nobel Museum.

Then we reached Vasa Museum for our final tour destination. Renata explanation were soooo good that many people in the Vasa museum were eavesdrop to her explanation how the Vasa sank and salvaged...

For all you guys whom wanted to enjoy the best of Stockholm, don’t be hesitate to contact stoRytouR..it offers a top notch private tour experience (I had been joining many2 private tours in many different countries). Renata is really a super friendly stockholmers and you will get a plus point as well, Renata is very good in taking pictures. Guarantee all your pix taken by her would be sooo good...

For all my Indonesian friend, jangan ragu2 to contact Renata directly , nama tour nya: stoRytouR dan minta tolong Renata utk membuatkan tour program yg sangat berkesan dan impressive di Stockholm, Bisa tailor needs...

Well done Renata and warm regards from Ivan n Monica from sunny Indonesia :-)

"Last year, our Club of international Designers and Executives did an Exkursion to Stockholm and had this wonderful and thrilling tour through the city, with Renata as our exclusive guide. Young and old, sophisticated, demanding and easy going - we have them all and everyone was happy! It could not have been better. We all can recommend Renata and story tours from the bottom of our hearts. Thank you again Renata!"

We had a wonderful time on the 5 hour tour with Vasa Museum, City Hall and Old with a group of 8 people when our ship docked in Stockholm. We found Story Tours to be easy to work with and very helpful in planning our trip and very reliable. Our guide, Kris, was engaging and knowledgeable. He shared a lot of information not only on the sites we visited, but also about the Swedish people and life in Sweden. We were especially pleased with his good tips on how to make the most of our small amount of free time in the old town. My husband and I were hungry and wasted not time as he'd pointed out a restaurant where we could find a wonderful and quick meal of Swedish meatballs, mashed potatoes and lingonberries. We were also charmed by his musical talent when he offered to sing a song for us. It was an excellent tour and a lovely day.

We were also impressed that Renata, the owner, took the time to come and greet us at the end of the tour. I'd recommend Story Tours to anyone considering a private tour rather than a ship-organized excursion!

Great 5 hour tour of Stockholm with stoRy touRs! The tour was “Essential Stockholm Tour with the City Hall, Vasa Museum and Old Town”. Our guide Kris was wonderful: very informative, great sense of humor, talented (great voice) and fun. He shared between sites the Swedish history and culture stories. While visiting the Vasa Museum, Kris found a great spot to explain to highlight the history of the ship (away from the crowd) with enthusiasm/animation....this held true for City Hall and Old Town.
Renata, the owner also stopped by to greet group, great personal touch.

We were enchanted with the tour of the canals and waterways in and around Stockholm. Our captain and guide, Tim, was extremely knowledgeable and entertaining throughout our afternoon boat trip. We sampled many Swedish delicacies stopping at several restaurants along the way. We got off the beaten path and experienced many sites and locations that are the favorites of the locals. Renata was very gracious in organizing the tour in advance. Highly recommended way to get a good initial view of this beautiful and historic city.
