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 gave us a fantastic day touring the waterways of Stockholm - assisted by the perfect weather! Tim picked us up at the appointed spot on time, and then dropped us at the Vasa museum, but would have dropped us off at any location he could have if that suited us better. Thanks Tim for the loan of your hat also! Highly recommend Tim. The four of us enjoyed our day very much.

◦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!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello John, thanks for your kind words, glad to answer all sort of questions. Hope you made it home safe and sound. Best regards and thanks for touring with me! Tim

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our evening canal cruise with Tim. We were so thankful that at the last minute he was able to arrange to meet us as soon as our Viking cruise ship arrived in port that evening. We spent a most enjoyable and informative evening cruising the many canals of Stockholm with Tim pointing out the beautiful landmarks....he even brought wine, cheese, and seafood for us to enjoy as we meandered the lake and canals. I would highly recommend Tim be your guide through Stockholm!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Deborah, Thank you for your kind words, it was a great tour and I am glad we could work it out and had great fun. Whenever someone is in dispair on the Viking cruise, I am always glad to be your favourite Captain of choice! ;-)

We stared off with a tour guide and ended up with a friend! What a wonderful tour of Stockholm by a very friendly and knowledgeable tour guide who made us want to stay longer and enjoy this fascinating city. The boat ride was so unique and enjoyable and such a relaxing way to get to know Stockholm.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Karen, hope you made it home safe and sound, you are great people and always welcome back to Stockholm. :-) Best/Tim

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 is a great guide and captain. Very knowledgeable and passionate about Stockholm and Swedish culture and history. A small boat really let you go into canals and lakes that the big boats cannot go. A real and authentic "Stockholm by Water" experience.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind words, hope you had a great Holiday in Scandinavia./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
