The "Stockholm Syndrome" tour, guided by Natalie O´Sullivan (Stockholm our way), not only lead us to the well-known places of interest, but showed us cute little places and "unfamiliar" historic locations, too. She explained the facts, but also had to tell so many exciting stories and myths about "puzzle of life and history" of Sweden, Stockholm and its citizens that we plunged into the magic of this city. We were sorry when the tour was over after a 4 hours walk - but since then, we know what the "Stockholm Syndrome" feels like...

We chose a private guide as a group tour in English with 2 small children was out of the question. It's a lot of money (350 € for 2 adults) but it was worth every penny! Booking was straightforward and payment via PayPal was ok. Our guide Peter is Swedish with Austrian-Swedish roots and received us very friendly. He was very responsive to us and also explained patiently and in detail for the boys (4 & 6 years). After the old town tour with lots of information about what else you can do in Stockholm, we took the ferry to Mach Vasa Museum and were able to just pass a queue of at least 80m - an absolute plus! The private tour of the museum was also very good and there were no questions left from the children or from us. All in all a very, very successful day. Many thanks to our guide Peter!
What an experience! The walk was intensive, yet really rewarding! There is absolutely no sound of the city at all, and we spotted a lot of wild animals during our hike. The organiser gave us plenty of food and beverages to take on our trip, and the sandwich tasted like heaven!
It was a private tour, I loved it. She told me a lot about the city. I really enjoyed it. Thank you very much Alma.
