“A fabulous walking tour of Gamla Stan in Stockholm!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 August 2011

We recently visited Stockholm as part of our cruise itinerary. I had booked StoryTours online and I'm so happy I did. Our group consisted of 3 couples, and although we had booked a later tour, we were able to meet Renata earlier and she graciously took us on the earlier tour. The tour was virtually a private one since the only other people were a lovely family of 4 from California. Renata was very knowledgeable, friendly and was able to answer any questions that we had. Although the tour was only about 70 minutes, that's all you need in Gamla Stan. The tour ended as the changing of the guard began and we were able to see the initial procession. I would highly recommend booking a walking tour with StoryTours because you get so much more out of a city when you know what you are looking at. Thanks, Renata, for a wonderful tour of Gamla Stan!

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2011

Few weeks ago I took part in the walking tour in the Old Town of Stockholm. Renata, story tours guide gave us a very lively and interesting account of the Swedish history. She told us fascinating stories behind the facades of the buildings and squares of Gamla Stan.
I recommend this tour to everyone!

“Great overview of Stockholm and its history”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2011

Our guide Renata walked us through the cobblestone streets of Stockholm's Old Town while talking of the town's traditions. She was exceptionally knowledgeable about the Nobel prizes and their close ties with Stockholm's history. A nice touch was her use of photographs and maps which she carried in a three-ring binder. We would pause in our walk and she would show us a map of the area or a painting from the City's rich history. The tour was a real bargain, and our group was small enough that it made it easy to ask questions about Stockholm's culture, politics, and cuisine. In fact, at the end of our tour we asked Renata to recommend a place for lunch, and she recommended two places that were within easy walking distance. The one we chose to eat at was excellent! We recommend this tour highly.

“Wonderfully fun and historic walking tour of old town Gamla Stan”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2011

Renata Broda, our tour guide, gave us a wonderful walking tour of old town Gamla Stan, the ancient medieval section of Stockholm. She provided information on the history, the architecture, and the people of 750 year old Gamla Stan. Included fun information on more current items like where ABBA was photographed, etc. A wonderful tour guide that I highly recommend.
