What you’ll do

You’ll discover things on the more bohemian side of life as you venture into the hip Södermalm neighbourhood with one of our local Stockholm hosts. But don’t worry, hip hasn’t come hipster just yet.

What was once a working-class neighbourhood has morphed into a cultural explosion of art galleries, vintage stores, bohemian coffee shops and bars.

You’ll soon see why the neighbourhood is called “Stockholm’s Brooklyn” as you explore hip SoFo, all through a unique local lens. Experience the urban buzz in local-frequented Nytorget Square and see why Södermalm is an inspiration for artists, writers and musicians.

You could pop into boutique shops, markets, contemporary art galleries and underground clubs or sample a few local beers at a local microbrewery - a folköl or two? (Go on, you’re on holiday).

Enjoy navigating pop-ups, vinyl record shops and the tastiest street food markets. You’ll walk away feeling smug knowing that you’ve seen a pocket of secret Stockholm that most people miss. But hurry, before the hipsters arrive.

A Splendid Sunday Stroll in Stockholm

Take two cousins, one lives in Norway, the other resides in Sweden. They meet up for a long weekend and decide to explore Stockholm. How better to do so than with an accomplished and experienced local guide who can add depth and colour to the sights? Our guide, Stefani, is bubbly and cheerful. Her command of English is impressive and her knowledge of Stockholm is amazing. Stefani has planned a route for us that took us to the main attractions without rushing, giving us plenty of time to converse about various topics that touched upon what we saw. We were also given tips as to possibilities for other trips we could take on our own or restaurants and cafés we might enjoy. We stopped to take many photos and even had time for a fika, which I learnt is the Swedish tradition of a short break for a drink and a snack. Stefani had even taken the the trouble to research some of the statues that one sees on the routes as there are no plaques in place which provide information about them. This added an extra dimension to the city experience. Wandering around Stockholm was indeed a wonderful way to spend a Sunday. Thank you, Stefani, for contributing to an unforgettable experience!

Perfect match!

Now that my life has slowed down a bit, I would like to thank you for choosing Stefani as the local for our group. She was the perfect match! Stefani was beyond what I had expected. Not only was she professional at all times but she took the time to truly understand what I wanted for my group, which was someone fun and creative. From day one she felt like family and everyone loved her. She was the perfect blend of intelligence, professionalizing, warmth, and unconstrained fun. Our kind of girl! :-), The ladies did not want her to leave! I cannot imagine returning to Stockholm without Stephani as part of our experience. I look forward to our 2019 tours and beyond with City Unscripted.

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!!

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!

Best Tour Guide

My girlfriends and I booked the city unscripted tour for Stockholm. The four of us did not know what to expect. However, we knew immediately after we met our tour guide, Stefani that we made an excellent choice. Stefani arrived promptly for our tour. Stefani was an awesome tour guide. It was like seeing Stockholm with an old friend. She was full of knowledge about Stockholm and she made sure that each member of our group got to see and do what they wanted doing our tour. We had a full day of fun seeing Stockholm. We ate lunch, we toured a castle, we shopped and took breaks. We took plenty of pictures which Stefani was happy to take. I just cannot express enough about how great the tour was, we had the best tour guide ever! I would definitely recommend City Unscripted and Stefani!!!
