Stanley was a wonderful guide! He clearly has a deep love for the history of Stockholm and Sweden, and it comes out in his tour. I happened to be the only person booked so I was very lucky to have my own personal tour. I highly recommend if you want to take a deeper dive into the history of stockholm.
