Tim is a spectacular guide. Our group appreciated his knowledge of all things Swedish, and his relaxing manner. Tim also shared some local candies, treats, and waters with us for our drive. The VASA museum is a must see, Tim knows how to tour it best. ABBA museum is quirky and fun and has a pub restaurant near entrance for those who prefer to relax. Ice Bar is a frigid, yet fun experience. Sigtuna is worth the short drive to enjoy Viking history and the historic sites. Great guide. You were appreciated!

Tim was a wonderful guide with a good sense of both Stockholm's history and present-day life. He was able to get us around the lines to beat the crowds to cover the most amount of ground, while also knowing where the best lunch and fika spots were. We were impressed with his encyclopedic knowledge of the city, and he was a joy to listen to. We would recommend Tim to anyone looking for a knowledgable and friendly local guide in Stockholm!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Joelle, thank you for those kind words. It was very a true pleasure to have your family on tour. Hope you´ll make it back here one day, and send my best regards to your familymembers. Kind regards Tim

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Peter, thanks for your rating, hope you have a nice last day in Stockholm. A few last minutes tips. In Tromsö, try Mack Pilsner, its good beer, also Polarica excibit is interesting. From Honningsvåg to Northcape, they will likely stop at a Sami "village", there you´ll find the best , most authentic and priciest sami goods, like great bracelets, They arent cheap, but cheaper than everywhere else, I have a few things from there myself. Envy your itinerary best regards and hugs to Pat, Linn and David/Tim

None of us in our group of eight had been to Stockholm before, so we decided to leave it up to Tim to show us the sights. He did a great job talking about the city, the people and the history. We think we received a good overview of the beauty and the character of this great city. Our only suggestion would be for Tim to use a amplification system as he leads tours outside the bus.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind words Lita, I actually have headsets and will bring them next time. Hope you had a nice end to your cruise. Kind regards Tim

Tim was an outstanding guide. He met us at the ship as agreed and we had a very informative three days. We spent the first day and one half in Stockholm and covered all major attractions. Tim was very knowledgeable and patient. We never felt rushed and even though Tim had a schedule he was very flexible. The second day was a drive outside of Stockholm to Spigtuna which was very enjoyable.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for the kind words Lee, It was just a pleasure to have you and Barbara on the tour. Best/Tim

Tim was an excellent guide...humorous, engaging, extremely knowledgeable, and fun. We were a group ranging in ages of 16 - 78 and Tim was able to relate to and keep the younger individuals in our group interested in the sightseeing. As far as guides go, Tim was the highlight of our trip. Thanks, Tim, for an unforgettable tour of Stockholm!

Tim was fantastic. He was a good communicator prior to the trip and prompt to arrive the day of the tour. We had a group of six and his style worked well. He had the right balance of knowledge and humor and he adapted quickly to our group. One of my favorite parts of the tour was the vasa museum and going on his electric boat in the canals. He felt like more of a host sharing his culture than a tour guide. He even taught me a little about my Swedish roots. Thank you again Tim from me and my family!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Keith, Glad tour hear you enjoyed the tour. You have a great family and it was a pleasure to show you my city, and help you understand your roots. Hope to see you again in future. Kind regards Tim
