What you’ll do

If only all of our pastimes involved coffee and cake. You’ll join one of our local Stockholm hosts to indulge in the local tradition of fika, which just so happens to include both of those things in abundance.

A daily ritual for many locals, fika is all about slowing down, disconnecting (from your phone, not your friends) and savoring a cup of coffee and a sweet treat. We’d recommend you try a cinnamon bun. Or a smörgås (an open sandwich) and some kladdkaka (sticky chocolate cake). Or a slice of almond tart.

Oh, we can’t choose, have them all.

Anyway, your host will show you how to fika like a Stockholmare as you head into a local-loved coffee shop to indulge in this time to chat, reflect on your day and focus on the important things in life - good coffee, good food and good conversation.

Your host will teach you about the tradition and give you the true meaning behind the local pastime. As a bonus, coffee in Sweden is taken seriously - so you’ll visit a coffee shop where you can taste expertly blended and locally roasted beans, we promise it will be some of the best coffee you’ve ever had!

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!

STOCKHOLM, MUST SEE STOCKHOLM WITH A LOCAL

July 2019

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!!!
