Stockholm is ready to welcome you with open arms as you join one of our local Stockholm hosts to familiarise yourself with the goings-on in the city. You’ll learn how to navigate the city just like a local - no need to whip out your maps app.

Enjoy immersing yourself in the city and you’ll quickly forget that you’re a tourist as you get to know Stockholm’s personality, its landmarks and hidden gems.

Your host is ready to show you to some of their favourite spots - whether that’s restaurants, hangouts or gems frequented by locals, you’ll get to see them from a local point of view.

They can’t wait to explore the city with you, sharing their recommendations and throwing some secret tips in too - like the best spot to have fika, just over there.

You could go with the flow and stroll through the city or opt for a more direct approach and squeeze in as much as you can with your few hours together. Whatever your vibe, we’ll stick to it.

Your kickstart, your way.

2 hour City Unscripted Experience Stockholm

I booked only 2 hours as I assumed that would be the maximum time my teens could bare a tour guide. Such a shame, as Ryan really found the perfect balance between cultural and historical facts and cool youngster references. It was a very interesting walk and for sure, you feel Ryan is an experienced guide, bringing old stories alive. Should we return, We hope to meet for another walk!

Great having a local show you around the city

Our group of 4 had a fantastic 3 hour Stockholm walking tour with Pelle our local guide. It was so good having Pelle as our guide, who took us to several out of the way sights and unusual shops. The walking pace was as fast or as slow as we wanted, and there was plenty of time to take pictures. Pelle explained the history of Stockholm, and showed us how to use the ferries. We also had a great value lunch at a cafe that only the locals seemed to know about. Overall we considered it good value for money.

Stockholm with Nima

Nima sent his contact information in advance. He met with us as planned at Stockholm Central station. He had read our prior information. He tailored our tour to our wishes and accommodated as the day went on. He was very personable and knowledgeable about the city.

Great way to learn your way around the city

I really enjoyed the private and personalized tour with Nima! He did a great job showing me around the city and all the different neighborhoods. He explained the public transportation system and other important things to know about the Stockholm culture. Really glad I booked this tour!!
