What you’ll do

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.

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.

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!
