Our fabulously knowledgeable guide took us through the cobblestone streets of old town. tips 1. ask questions, 2. check the weather that morning 3. good shoes (cobblestones are brutal if you are not prepared) 4. public bathrooms are not along the route so keep a 10kr coin to use the one at the palace gift shop if you need a break, just inform your guide.

Cathrin is very nice, passionat and competent. But for my me she focused too much on history and not enough on the build, architecture of building by pointing out the styles. We walked without being encouraged to look up and at things. The rest was very nice.

Riley the tour guide was funny, knowledgeable and made the walking tour more fun than the Stockholm area actually was. There's not much to see but historical facts were unique and especially interesting if one has not done any research before. Would recommend this tour, not hectic either.
