Thank you Emma

Emma did a great job. She is a lovely young woman who loves Sweden and represents it well. We were able to get a wonderful overview of the city and we love it.

STOCKHOLM, ART IN STOCKHOLM

July 2019

Street and subway art of Stockholm

I decided I wanted a short private tour to show me the subway and street art of Stockholm and City Unscripted provided this individualised tour- you provide background re what you wish to see and do and the company then devises a specific tour for that criteria. Logbi, my guide for the three hour tour, was very professional and we met at the appointed time and place and off we went wandering the streets of Södermalm and the subways of Stockholm. Logbi was very organised with photos and extra information on more street art locations, which added to the overall professional attitude Logbi provided to my tour- thank you so much. It was so much fun and I just love what Stockholm has done with boring subway systems and made them into bright, interesting and happy places- wish more cities had such great concepts to brighten the world- one subway station at a time!!

STOCKHOLM, HALF DAY IN STOCKHOLM WITH A LOCAL

July 2019

Great day with Nima!

My friend Michelle and I booked a 4 hr walking tour in Stockholm and Nima was our host for the day. He was punctual, polite, interesting, and professional as he showed us around the city. He shared places he finds interesting and made sure he was meeting our interests! It was a very enjoyable day seeing Stockholm beyond the old town and in a way that would not have been possible without a local guide. When our time was up, he delivered us to watch the changing of the guard as we requested. Even though our time was up when he brought us to the square, he walked on his own to find out the easiest route to the HOHO boat, came back to the square and found us to give us detailed directions because he knew we were a little worried about getting there after the guard changing ceremony. I would highly recommend a tour with Nima!
