Sofia met us at the cruise port and was ready to go adventuring into town. She is incredibly knowledgable of the history and current times of Stockholm. Her knowledge was extremely broad in many areas. She made the tour fun and witty. Sofia also knows where the great cafes for coffee and sweets are. We highly recommend Sofia for touring Stockholm.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you! You are always welcome back for a Swedish fika break! Kind regards Sofia
Kathryn HiesingerUnited States
Wonderfully friendly, well organized, and deeply knowledgeable, Sofia took me through Drottningholm Palace outside Stockholm - a must for any art historically minded tourist. She was also able to add to our itinerary on the spot Drottningholm's 17 century theater which I had read about. The best part of the tour for me was the way Sofia quoted from letters kings and queens over the centuries had written about their experiences living in the palace. It made the tour very special!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you and welcome back! Kind regards
Gina PrattUnited States
Sofia was an excellent guide. We traveled by boat, subway, and on foot, and were able to see so many interesting parts of the city. The highlight for us was the City Hall where the Nobel Prize dinner is held each year. Such a beautiful and understated building, and Sophia knew so much about its history and use. Everything we did with Sophia was great and enabled us to explore, over the next few days on our own, with the knowledge of how to easily get from one place to another.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Gina!
Peter ShulmanUnited States

Lloyd AppelUnited States
Sofia gave my family and me a fantastic 8 hour tour of Sweden recently. She really customized the tour to our interests. Sofia was very knowledgeable and gladly shared her many insights. Her tour what not just about showing us the highlights of her wonderful city, but also about what it is like to live in Sweden. While we were certainly a little tired after 8 hours, she made the time go by quickly because we enjoyed ourselves so much. Her tour was definitely a highlight for us. Highly recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Lloyd! It was a pleasure to show you some additional sights during the tour. Kind sunny regards Sofia
Elizabeth GagnonUnited States
Sofia is an excellent guide. She led an amazing tour for us today with a wonderful knowledge of Stockholm's history and adjusted her speed for my mother's physical needs all the while. We are very grateful to have been able to see so much so thoroughly in one day. It is well worth the money to have had Sofia share her knowledge with us. We have taken many tours with locals and I think Sofia is more of a professional guide because of her delivery of historic information. Thank you for a great tour!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a pleasure to spend the day with you and your family and to show Stockholm in the fall! Have a great vacation and welcome back! Regards Sofia
Ben FeldmanUnited States

Fred EbertingUnited States
Sofia was a top notch guide and was able to show us the highlights of Stockholm in the time we had together. It was unusually warm while we were in Stockholm and undertaking a 7 hour walking tour might not have been wise, but that was not Sofia's fault. We had a great time and she was fun to be with.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you!
Sofia met the six of us at our ship and took us on a four hour walking tour of Stockholm. She was very responsive to our requests, and she worked things out perfectly to cover a great deal of ground in the time available without feeling rushed, including the Old Town, the Town Hall, and the Vasa Museum. She is knowledgable, interesting, personable, and fun. We ended with a one-hour bike tour of Djurgarden, which was just beautiful. We enjoyed our time with her very much, and can recommend her highly.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for coming to Stockholm!
Linda TownsleyUnited States
Sofia was able to make the tour interesting for a diverse group of people age 10 to seniors.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am glad you liked it! Warm summer regards Sofia
Alison SlavinUnited States
Sofia was an EXCELLENT tour guide. She is extremely knowledgeable about Stockholm/Sweden. She not only knows everything about the museums and tourist attractions but was happy to answer many questions about modern Swedish culture/customs. We did the 8 hour tour with her and visited lots of great places - Vasa Museum, City Hall, Gamla Stan (old town), Skansen open air Museum (highly recommend to experience other parts of Sweden that you may not get to in person). Her English is perfect. Highly recommend!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Alison! I hope you enjoyed the rest of your trip! Kind regards Sofia
Charles StetlerUnited States
Thanks for a great tour of Stockholm today. Sofia is friendly and knowledgable. The VasaMuseum was outstanding. Next trip we will spend more time there. She made great use of our 6 hours. We covered a lot of ground today! We also enjoyed the Royal Palace and City Hall. Ended the day at the IceBar (after a detour to a great candy shop). We would definitely book another trip with Sofia and recommend her highly.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you! I hope you will have a wonderful cruise!

We were a group of 13 family all retired teachers and professionals. We took the all day private tour and were able to cover all the major attractions in the central part of the city including a short ferry ride to Skansen where we spent most of the afternoon. Sofia was very knowledgeable and very helpful and able to accommodate our group well. Overall we were very pleased with the day.

Sofia recently conducted an 8 hour tour of Stockholm for 13 of us. I made the arrangements for this tour and I have to say that Sofia is the consummate professional. In planning the day, my emails to Sofia were always answered promptly and she was extremely flexible. Sofia arranged a day with variety - City Hall, Skansen and the Vasa Museum. She is extremely knowledgeable and very easy to be with. I highly recommend Tours by Locals in Stockholm and especially Sofia!

Lisa R.Knoxville, TN, United States
We just finished two days touring with Sofia and she is not only a great guide for Stockholm, but she is one of the best private guides we have had in any city. She is charming, knowledgable, punctual and has great follow-through. I would recommend her to anyone looking to make the most out of their time in Stockholm. Now, Nobel Committee, if by chance you are reading this, please send her an invitation to your dinner December 10th. She is a great ambassador for your city! Thanks for the great tour Sofia.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a pleasure to show you Stockholm. I really hope the Nobel Committe reads this:)
Lucille S.Northbrook, IL, United States
Sofia is a lovely young woman who also shared personal things. We walked a lot as she had no car but we decided to take cabs as there was too much walking.We went to an Ice Bar at the end - great, great experience. We saw the Vasa and Skansen Open Air Museum - very interesting. The guide at the synagogue we visited, Chava, was very good.She taught us about anti-semitism in Stockholm.

Richard BellCalabasas, CALIFORNIA, United States
Our 2 days with Sofia were outstanding! She arranged our time to see far more than we could on our own. Her English is perfect and she is charming. Her unique insider knowledge brought history to life. Sofia zipped us around the highlights of each venue but could discuss everything in depth. We enjoyed her perspective on Stockholm life today. A delightful experience. Highly recommend.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you! I hope you will have a wounderful cruise!

JoAnn L.United States
Sofia was a knowledgeable delight from her on-time arrival to the goodbye at the metro 8 hours later. She was friendly, accommodating and so informative. She gave in-depth explanations of everything, plus she responded knowledgeably to our many questions. We would not have had the same visit to Stockholm, period, or such good tours of City Hall, the history museum, the Vasa museum or Skansen without her. Many, many thanks, Sofia. As to toursbylocals, I will use them again in the future.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you! I hope that I gave you some good suggestions where to go the rest of the week.
Thanks Sofia! We enjoyed you showing us Stockholm! Very Informative and fun !
