I recently had the pleasure of taking a guided tour of Stockholm with a witty and charming guide who made the experience truly unforgettable. Their clever jokes and quick wit kept the group engaged and entertained throughout the entire tour, making even the most mundane details of the city's history come alive. What really made the tour stand out, however, were the interesting stories that our guide shared with us along the way. From tales of Viking invasions to the scandalous king murder, each story added a unique layer to our understanding of Stockholm's rich and complex history. Overall, the tour provided me with a fresh perspective on the city. I left with a newfound appreciation for Stockholm's beauty and a deeper understanding of its unique cultural identity. I highly recommend this tour to anyone looking to experience the city in a fun, engaging, and informative way.

Great experience! Our guide was fully dressed up with hat and equipped with walking cane and lantern. She played her role very well, and engaged us one by one in her stories. She even censorized certain things because there was a little girl in our group, about age 8, which made thinge even funnier for us adults. One and only note: I would suggest a minimum age of 12 years for this activity. The tour ends in a dungeon, and things get really scary. The little girl was absolutely terrified.

Our Guide ( the charming scottsman, forgot his name) was great. We needed a while to get used to his kinda special way of speaking. But after that it was a blast. Especially for the kids that were there (they have to be old enough for quite gory stories though). Lots of audience participation and joking around. you really got the impression that he likes his role as mysterious storyteller, so the time with him just flies while exploring this beautiful old town.
