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.
