Let me guide you through Stockholm by car and show you the highlights of the city!
When you have been on this tour, you will have a pretty good idea of the layout of Stockholm and an understanding of how Swedes live their life.
This tour will cover parts of the old city, Södermalm as well as the green lush "Djurgarden" where many of my favourite museums are. We will have the car all the time, to minimize the walking.
You will receive maps and information of the places we visit, as well as recommendations for good restaurants. I hope you will join me on this "Tour of Stockholm" so I can show you my home town! Welcome.
We will meet up at your hotel or wherever we have agreed upon and make our way by car past the City hall and through the old city "Gamla Stan" with the Royal Castle.
Cars are restricted in the Old Town "Gamla Stan" but I will try to park nearby and then we can take a walk through the Old Town (parking is sometimes difficult). If you are happy walkers and you are staying close to the Old Town then a suggestion would be to start off with a walk in the Old Town and then continuing on by car. Or, if you are staying a while - I am happy to take you on a more extended guided tour of the Old Town on foot the next day.
We will stop for a fabulous view of the whole of the city at Södermalm and from here we will drive to Djurgården where I suggest we stop for a visit at the Vasa Museum. If we ge peckish, we can stop for a Swedish "Fika" somewhere on the way - a coffee and something sweet.
After the tour I will drive you back to your hotel or wherever we decide upon.

Jessica provided us with the perfect introduction to Stockholm. She was welcoming and calm which was just what we needed after a somewhat hassled arrival in the city. She is a good driver and her car was comfortable. She recognized that my husband was still recovering from knee-replacement surgeries and planned our drop-off points accordingly. We can recommend her services highly.
