What you’ll do

We know, we know. You couldn’t really see all of Stockholm’s must-sees in a day, but with one of our local Stockholm hosts with you, you’ll make a good go of it!

Maybe you’ve got a list of the places you can’t wait to see (hand it over), or maybe you’d like a local’s take on what’s unmissable in their city - just let us know which you’d prefer.

Can you see yourself visiting the Royal Palace, exploring Gamla Stan or even stopping by the ABBA museum? All things are possible!

Or maybe you could do some island hopping - we’d recommend leafy Djurgården, an island known for its stately homes and the astounding Vasa Museum where you can see a fully intact 17th-century ship.

We’d never deprive you of good food, especially when there are farmers’ markets to explore, fika (complete with cinnamon buns) to be enjoyed and delights like smoked salmon and meatballs to try!

Just let your host know what you’re in the mood for, and they’ll take you somewhere to suit. The day is yours, we’re just here to make it happen.

Experience highlights

  • Get to know the real Stockholm with a local, avoiding the tourist traps but seeing the highlights.

  • Tick off attractions from your ‘must see’ famous sites list, or if you don’t have such a list, let your host recommend one

  • Eat Swedish delicacies for lunch at a place that’s loved by locals or give your feet a break and stop for fika, although we’d recommend doing both

  • Soak up the history of the city by chatting to locals or engaging your host in conversation

  • Get tips from your host (over a beer, perhaps) for the rest of your stay in Stockholm

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.

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!!!

A must do in Stockholm

I am truly happy with my choice of this tour. Nima was our guide and he was so kind, organized and truly passionate about showing us this city he lives in. We saw EVERYTHING and he also shared with us hidden finds. It was one of the best tours I’ve ever been on and one of the best tour guides I’ve ever had. Nima even sent an email of other things to do after the tour. Thank you so much Nima!!!

Stockholm walk about.

Stephanie... hmm, Very pleasant person, willing to not only talk about the local and national flare, but life in Sweden also. Her personality exudes comfort and has a smile that surely will have others smiling back. I definitely would have her as my guide again and will highly recommend her! Thank you Stephanie. Dave

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!

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.
