Up to 10 people
Hosted in English

What you'll do

This very experience will be ideal for those of you who are visiting Stockholm for only a day or two.

We will cover the main sights of downtown and old town in 3 hours. During these hours you really get a great overview of both modern and medieval history of Stockholm.

Walk with me through some of the priciest streets of this amazing city and listen to the stories you might have heard about but never really understood like the mysterious murder of Olof Palme, Stockholm syndrome or Stockholm bloodbath.

For those of you interested in some royal gossip I have a special treat, which has an interesting outcome on modern day Swedish history at the end of the day.

We'll also 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.

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.

Immerse yourself in this unique opportunity to see how two different parts of city form one amazing tour.

I am 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 to discuss.

Where you'll be

We will cover a lot of ground in a way that allows us to see the most that Stockholm has to offer in any weather that you can imagine. You will see the main sights but also the little details most tourists don't even notice at all.

Zenid was warm and very friendly. He shared a ton of stories and unique insights about all the places we visited. I learnt a lot and highly recommend this on day 1 of your trip - you’ll get a great overview of the landscape and some cool suggestions.

Zenid was a great guide around Stockholm. He seemed very knowledgeable about the area and even recommended extra activities we could do during our stay in Sweden. I would definitely recommend if it’s your first time in Stockholm.

My husband and I had already gone on one of Zenid's other tours and had such a great time so we already knew we were going to love this walking tour as well. Zenid has the perfect personality for these kinds of tours because not only is he great at keeping everyone interested and invested, but he also has great pacing (not too slow or fast) and the break (or "fikka" as the Swedes call it) in the middle was perfect. I really enjoyed how he kept us involved by asking questions, and he really had unique ways for us to remember certain parts of history. You will learn a lot on this tour but you will never be bored, excellent walking tour and excellent guide. Highly recommend!

My friend and I had a great experience with Zenid during our Old Town walking tour. He was thoughtful, had great sense of humour and fantastic storytelling skills. Zenid went the extra mile by sharing with us where else we could go visit, eat and explore.

Zenid is very hospitable, warm and welcoming. My fiancé and I enjoyed our walking tour so much that we immediately booked in for another tour with Zenid the following day. He has a rare spark that made us forget that we were walking around Stockholm in the freezing cold. The tour was a perfect balance. He did not take us to so many places that it felt rushed and that we did not get to experience it fully, but he also knew how much time was perfect so it didn’t feel like it dragged on forever. I highly recommend Zenid for your experiences!
