Alain was was very knowledgeable and well versed in the history of Stockholm. We also appreciated his flexibility to indulge some of our shopping desires and local culture.
Great tour. Our guide Samuel was very informative and knowledgeable.
We did not get to have this tour. We were not told that we needed to get to pick up site on our own and by the time we found this out it was too late to meet our 10:00 scheduled tour.
