I really enjoyed our guide, Chrystal. The tour meeting spot was slightly confusing, so perhaps providing a little more details about where to meet might be good. We first started in a food hall eating savory foods as we stood and listened to the guide. We then walked to another hall for a sit down savory lunch of seafood, which was quite nice. The second half of the tour was all the sweets from various stops along the walk. The tour ended with fika - this was really nice, but I felt full from the previous stops, so I took my pastry to go. Overall, it was quite nice. It might be fun to add a little more alcohol to the tour in the future.

It was my first good tour and really loved everything about it. Perfect selection to really experience Swedish food. Our guide (Valentina) was just great and very helpful for any other open question we had. I would recommend this tour to everyone!!

Great tour with a great guide, highly recommended. In addition to excellent culinary delights, you also learn a lot about Stockholm and the country of Sweden. I would book again immediately, the time flies far too quickly
