What you'll do

We'll visit one of the largest and best-preserved medieval city centers in Europe: Stockholm's Gamla Stan (Old Town). This is where it all started, back in the year 1252.

You'll learn about our most important kings—their names are easy to remember—and hear about the ghost that has been haunting the royals. Then we'll unearth one of the best-kept secrets in the city.

We'll check out the scene of Stockholm's bloodiest massacre, where over 80 people were executed, and touch a thousand-year-old Viking runestone.

You'll walk along the narrowest street of this amazing city and learn why it's a tourist magnet—and I'll also tell you a secret that most people do not know at all. Lastly, we'll admire the beautiful architecture of this unique place and enjoy the experience.

Most importantly, we will do this no matter what kind of weather awaits us—rain or shine, as they say—because I can protect you from even the most severe conditions.
Other things to note
The tour might last a little bit more than 2 hours depending on how many questions you will have and how fast we will be moving :)

I'm a person who loves his job - a former journalist who became a tour guide. Have been guiding for the last few years in Stockholm and have done over 2000 tours.

Tend to use my journalistic experience and education to deliver stories in an engaging yet informative way. Making everyone feel welcomed and included is my ultimate goal during tours, and at the same time I try to be as laid-back as possible.

I am also like you - a traveler who has been to over 40 countries so far and have no intent of stopping anytime soon so I'm sure we will have plenty of topics to discuss.

Where you'll be

We'll meet at Drottningatan, the central pedestrian street in Stockholm, then make our way to Gamla Stan. I'll tell you the best stories of Stockholm, talk about hidden symbols most people do not even know about, and point out views you will remember for a lifetime. After this walk you will feel like you have become a local for at least a few hours of your life.

It was a very nice experience. Zenid was really kind and willing to share all the information on Stockholm and Sweden as much as you would like to discover during the trip. It was helpful to get to know Gamla Stan more with his interesting stories. I would definitely recommend this tour if you plan to stay in Stockholm! I personally thank Zenid for still taking me for the tour although I was the only one on the day. A private one for me which was super but hope the COVID-19 situation gets better soon so there are more tourists back in this beautiful city!
