      Sorry, but this was one of the worst walking tours I experienced. It really got my impression of Stockholm starting from a low place. She seemed to be offering more trivia than actual history. She didn't seem as engaged and out of breath. I didn't really gather much information from the tour. By the time we got to the Central Square people were clearly bored out of their skulls and were just ready to be done with. This might have been a time where I would've considered paying for a tour, as I have done in the past.

      The guide (Joe) was great! Kept us always on our toes with exciting stories of the city. Saw lots of main parts of the old town and heard about the history

      Zenid did a great job on the old town tour at 10am. He was funny but also made sure we all were safe from pickpocketing by thoroughly warning us beforehand and pointing out pickpockets that had followed our group during the tour.

    Very informative, interesting, and a great experience. Zenid went to extra lengths to arrange the group and make sure everyone could hear, especially bc there were so many people. Highly recommend!

      My family did two tours in one day (June 30). Albena gave a nice and very informative tour of Stockholm city in the morning. We did a second tour in the afternoon with Adi of Stockholm old town. She did a great job, too. Both tours are complementary with little overlap. I would recommend if you want to get a nice overview of the city.
