My tour was great! Jon and Becca (I think that was her name!) were absolutely fantastic guides - friendly, funny and knowledgable. It was such a great way to see the city and embrace the “friluftsliv”. Thank you so much!

Our tour guide, Shaf, was very good. He was knowledgeable, engaging, entertaining and clearly happy with his city. The pace and time to wander at different stops was well balanced. Would definitely recommend!

The tour was absolutely great! Maria was a great guide, very knowledgeable and very fluent in English for a local. She kept the tour interesting throughout and we couldn’t tell where the 2 hours flew by!

Our tour guide, Maria, was very knowledgeable and funny. Would highly recommend her. She really made the tour great

Great tour. Was not 2 hours as it said but still loved it! For its price I’m okay with it being a little short.
