Jill HollonCALIFORNIA, United States
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 is a fabulous Stockholm tourguide! He explained everything about Sweden and its history, culture, people and places while driving us and walking us through the local sites and museums. Tim's knowledge is extensive, and he was able to answer every question with dates and facts while being personable and funny. We are extremely satisfied with our day, and I highly recommend Tim for your tour of this beautiful and historical city.

Tim drove us around town, stopping at all the important landmarks in Stockholm. He has a depth of knowledge about the country's history. We also learned about current life and the political and economic challenges facing Stockholm and Sweden. We saw a lot without becoming overwhelmed or exhausted. Thanks Tim!

Joelle EricksonUnited States
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
Manisha PatelUnited States
We were very impressed with how well he kept our large group of 44 people engaged with the tour. We ranged from age 5 to 76 years old. Very knowledgable and accommodating. We had a BLAST!
Lita SmallUnited States
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
Joan CarterUnited States
Tim was terrific! He was able to give us a great orientation to Stockholm. Tim's knowledge of history, politics, culture, and world affairs added to the richness of our tour.
Lee TooleJohns Creek, GA, United States
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 a wealth of information and really knew his way around Stockholm. He was very flexible in arranging for us to see the sights that interested us the most. His commentary made the visits even better. We wouldn't hesitate to use him again.

Don GreinerEdmond, OK, United States
We had a great day with Tim. He took us all over the city. There wasn't a question about Sweden - or anything about European history or current events - he couldn't answer. Lovely day with a highly qualified guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Don, glad to hear you had a nice time in Stockholm, your kind words will keep me warm all winter! Kind regards Tim
Joe HendersonUnited States
Tim did a great job as our guide. He turned a raining morning into a fun filled day! He was promptly waiting for us that morning with fresh cinnamon buns to start our day. His knowledge of the history and getting us around the city in traffic was wonderful. I would highly recommend Tim for your next tour.

Christie PedenUnited States
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!
Keith K.United States
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

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Neil, thanks for your kind words, when winter strikes Sweden, we live of the fine memories from the summer. :-) Kind regards Tim
Stacy S.United States
Tim was an outstanding guide. He was waiting for us at the airport when our flight arrived ahead of schedule. He took us to Uppsala, Sigtuna and Drottingholm and he even then drove us around Stockholm for an overview. Tim was very knowledgeable and personable and we thoroughly enjoyed our conversations with him. We would highly recommend him..
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Stacy, It was a real pleasure to have iong countryside tour wit you and Gary, hope you´ll will have an awsome time in Stockholm. The weather will be perfect. Kind regards

Robert G.United States
Tim is an outstanding guide. We spent 2 full days with him - one in Stockholm and one in Sigtuna. The VASA was a highlight and we spent a few hours there. We walked down some of the streets to enjoy the shops, and toured the city by car. The trip to Sigtuna was awesome- loved the local lunch, ruins, shopping in the local supermarket, and the SNOW! Tim went out of his way to accommodate our handicaps, and to get things my son wanted. You will have the trip of a lifetime with Tim.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Blanche, glad you appreciated the tour, hope you came home safe and sound, Look after each other/Greatings to everyone/Best regards Tim
Jai ChabriaUnited States
Tim was flexible, knowledgeable and personable. A great combination in a tour guide. He met us at the airport and we let him decide where we were going to go. He did a terrific job and we didn't have to worry about anything. I can honestly say we saw sights we wouldn't have chosen on our own accord, and we would have been far worse off on our own. He also helped us with our particular dietary needs and made extra stops when needed. Finally, this wasn't a go through the motions tour. He was very thorough.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Jai, Thanks. I am glad you enjoyed the tour/Best regards to all of your great family and hope you have a good time in Norway!
Great tour informative and a very witty man. Nothing was a problem. .
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Glad to hear you enjoyed the tour and hope that the rest of your stay went well, please send some sun to us when your are back in Australia :-) /Tim
Tim took us on a journey of all the highlights of Stockholm in one day. We appreciated his humorous style, and we got a very good impression of the city. He also gave us a lot of useful tips, such as which tourist traps to avoid. We can definitely recommend him for a city trip in Stockholm.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks, Peter. Great you enjoyed the tour :-)
Janie TiptonUnited States
We so enjoyed our first tour of Stockholm, Sweden with Tim. He told us history about which we knew nothing. We felt comfortable and loved the sights. The City Hall and ship were amazing! Thanks, Tim
Eloise MasonUnited States
What a fabulous tour! Tim is very knowledgable and likable guide. He truly made our time in Stockholm the best. We would recommend him over other tour guides we have had in other cities. We spent an entire day touring and ending up in a tour in his boat. What could be better!!!

Stephen CheninHenderson, NEVADA, United States
Tim did a great tour for us. We went multiple places & he was able to drive his van right up to the front door of almost every spot that we went to-- it was amazing! He was funny, very knowledgeable about the architecture & the history, it was a wonderful tour. He took care of all of our needs. I would recommend him without hesitation to anyone wants a tour in the area!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind words Stephen, It was great fun having a tour with all of you. Best regards Tim
Gerald ScottUnited States
I have taken 10 TBL tours in a little over 1 years. All the guides are very good. Tim is in a class by himself. I am not so mobile as I used to be and Tim drove around to many intriguing areas. He parked his car so that we had to do some walking only twice during the day. He found us a space right outside the door of the Vasa museum. His knowledge of Stockholm is absolutely fantastic. I wish Tim guided in Oslo, where I will be taking a TBL tour in 2 days;
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Jerry, I really enjoy you mentioning Oslo and my driving Skills :-)
Nicholas GilesUnited Kingdom
We had a great tour with Tim. He picked us up at the port as arranged and spent the day running us where ever we wanted to go. Would use him again.
Jill McClearyCypress, TX, United States
Jan FischerUnited States
Tim took on a his lovely boat for a wonderful cruise around Stockholm. The different view of Stockholm was interesting and relaxing. Before the cruise, Tim took us to the Old City for a walk through it and then took us to a wonderful restaurant for lunch where the locals go. Tim's command of the English language, his knowledge of history and architecture, and his sense of humor made our tour there a part of our trip that will stand out in our memories. Jan Fischer
Douglas ReedUnited States
Tim in Stockholm was great--We all enjoyed his tour very much! The only nagging thing was we paid more for this tour than all of the rest and a perceived negative was we had to pay for museum entrance fees, lunch( bought his)...It might have been indicated on the website and we missed it. In our opinion after spending so much, just bump the price and be done with it.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Douglas, glad you´d liked the tour, I made an exception picking you up at Nynäshamn 60km outside Stockholm with out extra charge because I know how tough it is to get stuck really far away from the city center. A regular cab company charges at least 150usd for the distance. Its like if you live in Milwaukee and you fly into Chicago, but the pilot decides to land on your street because you seem to be nice people. :-)
Kathryn SachsUnited States
Terrific time with Tim. He is very knowledgeable and has great stories to share about the history Stockholm. He was a wonderful guide!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Kathryn, You are great people, hope you made it back safely. Kind regards Tim
Fred BrackUnited States
Tim is a terrific guide! All four of us enjoyed our all-day tour of Stockholm immensely. He picked us and our luggage up at the ship and deposited us later at the hotel. He knew all the right places to go, how to get to them both efficiently and by giving us a scenic tour along the way, with a constant stream of commentary. And he gave us touring options, though we generally defaulted to his excellent choices. We give Tim our highest recommendation!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Fred, glad you appreciated your stay in Stockholm, hope you got home safe. It was a pleasure to meet all of you. Best regards Tim
Linda DahlUnited States
Tim was very knowledgeable and friendly and very funny! He showed us all the highlights of Stockholm. Would highly recommend him to anyone.

Tung Ming HuangUnited States
A wonderful one day trip in Stockholm. Tim is a nice and humorous tour guide. He also arranged a comfortable bus for our 18 people group and picked us up right at the pier, it saved a lot of time on traveling to the city.
Jon LangbertUnited States
Very friendly and knowledgeable guy. Accommodated our schedule and desires perfectly. Only reason he didn't get five stars was that his vehicle is a bit on the beater side. Definitely needs a detailing and some new floor mats and the like.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi John, I am sorry my car didnt live up to your standards, next time we take my boat or the Renault (which has 7 seats but helps if two of them are children). Its hard to know if you can fit everyone in without prevoius communication. I looked up the Swedish Tosca cakes and you can find them on the webb so you should be able to find them, otherwise get back to me. Best regards Tim
tim , you truly have a great sense of humor! thank you for sharing stockholm with our family.
Robert SklovskyUnited States
Tim gave us a great tour did all that he could to accommodate us. We recommend him without reservation.
