Today we had the pleasure of a guide of Gama Stan in Stockholm. Joel was presented very well, gave us a very informative tour and was willing to wait while we shopped. He was excellent in every way including vale for the cost. Highly recommended.

Joel was a terrific guide..we have used over 20 TourByLocals guides and he was definitely one of the very best! We were a group of six with two handicapped persons and Joel handled us perfectly. His knowledge of Stockholm and the wonderful sites .. old town, VASA 17th century ship.. City Hall ... the NOBLE PRIZE..Parliament etc was outstanding. If you visit Stockholm, make certain you contact Joel and do it right!

Joel is an excellent guide. He has the best command of English of all of the many guides we have had through Tours By Locals. He is also very knowledgeable about Stockholm and Sweden. He answered all of the questions we had regarding both history and contemporary life. We thoroughly enjoyed seeing the highlights of Stockholm with Joel. P.S. He also picked us up and returned us to Nynashamn, an hour away from Stockholm, when at the last minute, our ship changed its planned docking location.

Joel is a full-time guide (including the off-season) and is very knowledgeable about Sweden - including politics and the economy. We had a very pleasurable, low-key tour, avoiding the crush of group tours and seeing a lot in a short period of time.

Joel is an excellent guide. His English is excellent and he has a wonderful fund of knowledge. We did a walking tour of Stockholm with him. His pace was leisurely which was a pleasure. He arrived at our hotel on time and after his tour escorted us back to the hotel. If you are looking for a terrific guide in Stockholm, Joel is your man.

Joel met us at the port and drove us into Stockholm. He did a good job of explaining to us how Stockholm is laid out and gave us a good history. He answered our questions without hesitation. He chose a lovely local place for us to have lunch in the Old Town. We enjoyed getting to know Joel and Stockholm!

Joel met us in our hotel lobby exactly as arranged and promptly began our tour. He is a friendly and courteous man with an excellent command of English and happily answered our many questions about the art and history of his city. With a sense of humor and openness to our interests, Joel pointed out the interesting features of the Old Town and also to the economic & historical changes of the city along our route--for example, explaining the need for updating the lock system under serious renconstruction

Excellent bike tour and guide. We rode for 2.5 hours stopping intermittently for Joel to explain the sights, history and culture. We were a group of eight riding on wet roads and always felt safe due to Joel's instruction and quality of bikes. I would highly recommend this tour with Joel. Gives you an entirely different perspective of Stockholm.

We had a fabulous tour with Joel in Stockholm. We covered so much territory and so many interesting sights due to Joel's knowledge of the City, history, and the bus and ferry system in Stockholm. Joel gave us just the right enough information - not too quick and not too long. And, he's just a nice guy! We highly recommend Joel for any of your tour needs in Stockholm.

The sailing tour is a very original way of looking at the city - it allows you to see the parts of Stockholm which are difficult to reach for a tourist.
