A special and very beautiful tour of Stockholm's old town. The guide Anna is an amazing professional, friendly and very friendly. He told us a lot of interesting things and took us through places not very crowded, so we could hear it very well. I had the visit very well prepared and with many details. An incredible experience. We were also a very small group, which made everything even more charming. The spectacular tour, but the guide Anna even better if it can be said. A 10 to everything. Highly recommended. I will recommend it to everyone who goes to Stockholm and I don't rule out repeating it too if I come back. Thanks Anna!!! God Jul !!!

Nice walking tour of the old town with interesting stories about Swedish Christmas traditions and a little history of Stockholm. Our guide Christoph made the information very entertaining. You can stop by the Christmas market on Stortorget and visit it yourself later. At the end of the tour there is a glögg.

We were only a small group of six with a very nice guide who presented the topic in an entertaining and informative way.

It was a lot of fun ! Got some history and folklore ! Guide was comical and informative. So glad we went !

Anna was a nice and competent guide. Good value for money!
