About
This outdoor tour, which starts at Gamla Stan Metro station, connects the history of Stockholm with modern Sweden. How is it possible that a small country in northern Europe is the home of the mobile phone, that our Royal Academies designate the winners of the world’s most prestigious prices in sciences and literature and that Swedish companies furnish (IKEA) and dresses (HM) the world? We will tell you the story of Sweden from the ice age to the Nobel Price, IKEA and Spotify. We will introduce you to the founding of Stockholm, the warrior kings of the 17th and 18th century, the inventors and industrialists of the 19th and 20th century and to the modern IT entrepreneurs of today. We will start our walk at Riddarholmen with a beautiful view of the lake Mälaren and the City Hall, a famous landmark of Stockholm and the place for the Noble Prices banquette. We will pass the House of Nobility, the Parliament building and the Royal Palace and end at Stortorget in Gamla Stan (Old town).

Amazing tour of Stockholm
Jan. 2021
We took the tour last week, and the experience was really amazing. Bengt is a very nice person, very well prepared about the history of the city. He speaks excellent English, and was very helpful giving us extra advice about where to eat and so on. Definitely recommended to have an immersion into the soul of the city!

Great job Bengt!!
Dec. 2019
Bengt is a Stockholm local who also speaks very good English- for those interested an English speaking guide. He is very knowledgeable and has a great personality. He breaks down the tour into three segments which gives you a very good understanding of Stockholm and Sweden culture. I highly recommend choosing this tour and allowing Bengt to be your tour guide.

Small group walking tour of Stockholm
Jun. 2019 • Couples
Bengt knows his city, country and its history.
We, (2 couples) met up with Bengt at Gamla Stan station. In our two hour walking tour, he explained places of interest we might like to visit again, and the history of some places, statues and buildings in Gamla Stan. He had extra information on his iPad to share and a printout in English about Mid Summer celebrations. Questions were welcomed.
Our tour finished outside the Noble Centre and we treated ourselves to morning tea in there at his suggestion before looking through the exhibits.
All in all a great tour that we would recommend.

Nice walk with history in connection
Aug. 2019
I took this tour with Bengt in Stockholm recently. The tour had a cronological theme that explained how Sweden was created and how it developed to what it has become today. As we walked through the old town Bengt explained about places and people that are linked to important events in Sweden's history and today's life. In this way statues, houses, churches, places all connected in a nice way. We had a relaxed tour with time for questions and discussions. An interesting tour if you want to see the old town and at the same time learn the basics of Swedish history and some modern aspects.

The perfect overview.
Aug. 2019
Today I took a two-hour tour with Bengt, and we walked around central Sweden. He has a three-part schema for explaining how Sweden became what it is today. He moved chronologically through Stockholm history, as we walked and learned about Stockholm’s founding, its key figures, and most interesting some of the key aspects of modern Swedish society. Bengt was informative and humorous, and I had fun as I was learning. He was quite open to discussing points raised by questions. I recommend this tour especially to those interested in history.
