Valentina was a bright, friendly spirit who could connect to everyone on her tour. She navigated our picky eaters well. Really enjoyed the smoked moose, bear jerky, and smoked reindeer. There is some walking but the pace was nice and the route helped to orient ourselves in central Stockholm. Highly recommend her!
