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

I am very thankful to Tim for such a great tour. Stockholm will be quite memorable in our hearts. Thank you, Tim!

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!

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.

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.

He met us right at our ship, as a licence guide, he had access to take private tours around City Hall, which was fantastic, well worth the time. Then, after a drive around the city, we boarded Tim's boat to enjoy a lovely afternoon of touring the city fro the water and chatting about Swedish life and culture. Tim showed us a city we defininly return to. We highly recommend this tour for a first time visit to Stockholm

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;

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. :-)

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!

Tim was very accommodating with the tour. We asked for something different than his standard tour because we had already seen one of the items on his tour and he quickly moved into a "Plan B". Tim has a great personality, injects humor into the topic and works hard to find items of specific interest to his clients. It was a very enjoyable tour and I would recommend it as a "must do" in Stockholm.

The Vasa sank in 1638 and was recovered in the harbor in 1961. We also saw the Skansen, the Royal Palace, the Cathedral and Riddarholmen Church. Lots of history to learn about.

Its hard to know if you can fit everyone in without prevoius communication.

Tim is amazing, as is his counterpart, Jenny. They were accommodating and excellent at explaining everything. However, the best part was how warm and caring they were. They both clearly wanted to show us how great their city is, and they achieved this! I highly recommend both of them and the water tour is great if you enjoy boats. Money well spent, without a doubt!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Alex Dan, and Matt, glad you enjoyed the tour, you should come in wintertime and I´d fix tickts for a hockeygame for you. Hope you liked Östermalm. One day I´ll bring my ratpack to Los Angeles and hope your seagulls will show mercy on me. Take care of each others and enjoy your trip in the Baltic region. Best regard/Tim

Tim is a WONDERFUL guide. He is super knowledgeable, funny and an all-around interesting person. He scored big points with our 5 kids by bringing along candy and drinks. We loved his personal touch. We were able to see so much of Stockholm without fighting the cruise ship crowds. Don't hestitate, book this tour!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Debra for those nice Words, great kids, I wish I could have filmed them and showed the Picture to my boys. You Chris and your parents are welcome for bbq at my place anytime. Best/Tim

Stockholm was a great city to visit, but mostly because of our guide Tim. By the end of our tour, we were ready to take him home with us. For such a short time, he fit in to our 11 member group like one of the family. He was very knowledgeable, flexible and sensitive to meeting our needs and giving us an enjoyable experience. You can't go wrong using Tim to show you Stockholm.

He gave a very good overview of Stockholm and especially appreciated details of Vassa Museum and Nobel Prize.

Our tour of Stockholm with Tim was fantastic. He was one of our favorite guides on our trip to the Baltic, and really helped us enjoy Stockholm to its fullest. He was very friendly, extremely professional, and especially helpful in making advance preparations to accommodate my elderly father's mobility limitations. He timed the tour perfectly. His guiding us in Stockholm has made us want to come back again -- and very soon! He has our highest recommendation.

If you have two days to spend in Stockholm you MUST start your adventure with Tim. He will give you the water view of the city - which is amazing. We had lunch at one of the islands and ended the day visiting the VASA. Tim can give you lots of history of the country and you will relax on his quiet boat.

Touring with Tim exceeded our high expectations. He met us on time, conducted us to his cute boat which is perfect for cruising the inland waters around Stockholm. He was knowledgeable, courteous, friendly and helpful in every respect. We toured the Vasa Museum, old town and enjoyed every stop. On our second day he took us to the little village of Sigtuna - very quaint - and on to the airport. Hire this guide!

We had a tour that combined the land efforts of Jenny with the aquatic efforts of Tim. Tim was an able captain who inspired confidence in his landlubber customers. He pointed out the landmarks and explained their relevance. He was knowledgeable, dryly humorous, and alert to our interests and disinterests. My only criticism is that I wish he had been easier to hear.
