I use these buses as my first orientation in a new city. First the compl. Round tour..then I choose the exits that I want to see in more detail. The service is very good, language selectable. I can only recommend. I buy the map for the first 72 hours. Have fun exploring new cities!

Hans was excellent! He had an incredible amount of knowledge that he was able to share in a well organized manner that made all the sites we visited more meaningful. He was also very kind to accommodate all of our needs. Highly recommend him for your visit to Stockholm!

The scavenger hunt leads through the old town, gives an insight into the history, is entertaining and can be eaten in between or a visit to a café. Recommended

A very nice walk for a first discovery of the Swedish capital. The anecdotes are very interesting and we even learned things from the inhabitants afterwards!

Excellent tour guide and driver. Virginia and David were delightful and knowledgeable.
