    The tour was on a rainy day at the end of December and consisted only of me and my girlfriend and another couple. However, the walk and guide were excellent. Compelling stories were told about the Old Town and we thoroughly enjoyed it. A bit expensive for 1-2 hours walking around (depending on the group size), but still recommendable to do when you're in Stockholm.

    The guide was so lovely and the tour was excellent, I’m glad we did it at the beginning of our holiday as it made our visit much more enjoyable. We had a better understanding of Sweden and it’s surroundings. We went back to interesting places talked about on our tour. Would highly recommend

    Even in cold December we had a very interesting and entertaining tour through Gamla Stan with Kiki. There were interesting stories from the Middle Ages, lots of history, nicely reported, and recommendations for very good restaurants. Thank you very much! Recommendation: book the tour at the beginning of your stay!
