This was way more fun than expected, mainly because of our very funny tourguide. You miss some jokes if you don't speak swedish I think, but there are enough left anyway. Also very informative. Definately a fun thing to do!

Not sure why you're asking me about a walking tour as I give no indication of any such tour. I looked for free walking tours myself but couldn't find any in the city just paid tours.
