What you’ll do

Think of this personalised experience with one of our local Stockholm hosts like spending half a day with a friend. What better way to explore Stockholm than with a pal by your side?

You’ll join one of our local Stockholm hosts as they show you around the city you want to see, at a pace set by you. Do you see yourself strolling along the historic cobbled streets of Gamla Stan, or would you rather explore a trendy neighbourhood where you can pop into Scandi-chic boutiques and vintage stores?

Maybe you’d like to see the beautiful Royal Palace (not much of an original name, but the Baroque architecture makes up for it), or you’d prefer to take a jaunt to leafy Djurgården Island to see its stately homes and the astounding Vasa Museum.

We’ve been known to enjoy a snack on occasion too. You could stroll through a street food market to pick and choose from an array of Swedish tastes and treats (did someone say Västerbotten?) or slow down and have fika with a cinnamon bun.

Just let us know what you’d like to do, and we’ll try our best to make it happen.

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!

Provided a rich understanding of life in Stockholm today

A wonderfully bright and personable guide who shared with us what it’s like living in contemporary Stockholm - far more interesting than the old buildings. He was very accommodating and responsive to our interests.

Nice intro to Stockholm

First of all if you like walking then it’s a tour for you, Stefani our local host arrived on time to the hotel and we stared our tour which took us through the main parts of Stockholm. The host explained with clarity and passion what Stockholm is all about. We could by the end of the trip get our bearings. Eaten in some good cafes and checked out some decent sights! I highly recommend this to anyone visiting Stockholm.

Awesome guide , by far!!!

Mara was such an amazing host!!!. She was born and raise in greece but she has been living in Stockholm for almost 4 years. I honestly think Mara knows more of the local history, museum, Park, and fun hang out spots more than other local tourist guides I have been taking multiple city tours during my 5 days stay in Stockholm and by comparison, she is the best!!!!. If you were like me, I travel to Scandinavia on my solo trip, so during this trip I have done multiple tours with the group and some on my own. When I book Mara, it was an evening experience starting from 4 PM to 10 PM. The itinerary of our tour is completely how I planned and designed it and she totally exceeded my expectation. We started the evening with visiting a couple landmark in Cityview, she took me some of the local park using the bus and under ground train, go up to the hill for amazing city sunset pictures. she was also my personal photographer taking some amazing pictures:-). Then later on in the evening, we start doing our bar hopping. We even grab some local food truck. The whole experience is like literally hanging out with your best friend who is local to Stockholm. We ended The night on the high note, she offered me a couple options, and we decided to hang out at the local Jazz bar, it was spectacular!!. Overall what a great experience. This is the best tour so far I have Ever booked in Stockholm (I meant scandanavia too). I heard that the city unscripted now expanding to a different countries. I look forward to yet more experience in different countries. Mara, you were awesome!

Great day walking Stockholm with the family

Very enjoyable day. Harry was great with the kids, especially helping them learn some Swedish. Ability to have our needs catered for; plenty of stops for food and drinks for the kids and still get through a lot of what we wanted. Very enjoyable day

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.

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!!

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!!!
