This was a good tour but the guide...
Amanda G, Oct 2018
This was a good tour but the guide wasn't up to Viator standards. My experience with Viator walking tours has been that the tour guides are extremely knowledgeable people with either some sort of history degree or local knowledge from growing up/living in the city for many years. This is why I always book Viator tours, even though they are more expensive than others, because the quality is always excellent. However, this one I felt was lacking. First, I was not impressed that just 2 hours before the tour was to start I received an email asking to change it to the following day. While yes I could do that, I didn't feel that I should have had to and it messed up my itinerary for the week. Coming from Canada, a trip to Europe is a rare opportunity and I plan my days accordingly to ensure that I get to see and do everything I'd like, so I was not pleased to have to change the tour I'd booked months previously with no explanation as to why it was canceled. Secondly, while the guide was friendly and a good story teller, he wasn't overly knowledgeable or organized. It seems we walked aimlessly around Gamla Stan with lots of silence, we ended early, and when I looked up some of the things we were told on the tour not everything was correct. While it was an enjoyable tour and walking around Gamla Stan was very pretty, it was not up to Viator's standards. I didn't learn much and it wasn't worth the cost of the tour - I would recommend the free copenhagen walking tours instead.

Evelyn was excellent in her knowledge, enthusiasm, and communication skills. One of the best tour experiences I’ve had anywhere.
Susie was very friendly...
Cheryl_R, Jun 2022
Susie was very friendly and more than willing to help. She was great with her”script” but it ask a question outside of that she had no idea. Think with a few more facts and experience she’ll be great,

The tour was fine but was advertised as two hours. The actual tour only lasted about an hour and twenty minutes, too short for the cost.

Great walking tour
Julie_K, Sep 2022
Great walking tour of Gamla Stan! We covered most of the area at a comfortable pace, saw the highlights, and got some interesting history in the process. Sofia our guide was wonderful.
Fabulous! Over two hours of history in Gamla Stan.
Bruce_K, Sep 2022
I arrived a little early at the designated meeting place and Kiki was already there waiting. We had a lovely introduction and then we were on our way. For well over two hours, I was enthralled with the history and the sites of Stockholm's Gamla Stan (Old Town) neighborhood. So much to see, so many things happened here. I had a great time. In addition to pointing out sites along the way, Kiki recommended some restaurants I might enjoy and several more sites in the city that I should go see. Five stars for a great walk. Thank you!
Great tour!
Verena_P, Jan 2022

Great overview of Old Town
jubo24711, Aug 2022
Great overview of the important sights in Gamla Stan. Guide very good with interesting stories/comments of myths and stories tied to the locations and related them to current events.
No Guide
Tommy_R, Sep 2021
I was at the meeting point 15mkn before the start - a half hour later still no Guide - so I paid for nothing - nobody called me, no feedback on my queries

Must do this--Kiki is terrific!
Kathleen B, Jul 2019
It was a little hard to find the meeting place. It's actually a cafe. Kiki found me. What a great tour guide! As we navigated the Old Town, I learned the secrets and the history of the area. I watched all the other huge groups trying to wander around and felt so glad I had chosen a small tour. Thanks for a great 3-hours, Kiki.
Perfect intro to Stockholm
Christopher_M, Sep 2022
Very enjoyable tour. Just the right amount of time. Sophia was lovely, very knowledgeable and fun to spend time with. 5 stars all around!
Ki-ki is the top tour guide.
Jadviga_E, Jul 2022
Ki-ki is a brilliant guide. Extremely knowledgeable and wonderfully warm. Her tour was interesting and well coordinated.
Very disappointing tentative of a guided tour (no show by tour guide)
Claudio_O, Jul 2022
Terrible memories. I arrived at the meeting point (a few other tourists arrived as well), but no tourist guide showed up. We waited for about 45min and no one even dared to give a call or send a message to explain what happened.

A fun education!
michelle_k, Sep 2022
We enjoyed the anecdotes about each little spot that we stopped in. Our guide knew the broader stories that many guides don’t tell.
