Joel is a fabulous guide. We hired him just 2 days before the tour. He arrived on time. We toured City Hall, Vasa Museum and walked the streets of the Old Town. Joel is very knowledgeable and showed us hidden gems, such as Järnpojke and Uppland Runic Inscription 53, which we would not have noticed on our own. For lunch, he took us to a small Swedish restaurant

Joel was incredible. It was the best even better than Mohamed which I find almost impossibl. I have used your company in past but Stockholm. Tour guides surpassed the others by miles. No comparison. Joel is s gem- wish he was in every country. The very best, Karen and Eric

Joel provided an excellent walking tour of Stockholm for our family. Our 20 year old "kids" are not big fans of tours, but Joel tailored to the tour to their interests and they loved it. Thank you, Joel! The Thompson Family
Great tour by Joel. Joel was punctual, good at communicating and very informative about Stockholm history, particularly at the Vasa Museum. Really enjoyed this walking tour. He also helped with information to guide us back to the station after our tour with him was complete and we went on to the ABBA museum.

Joel was amazing. From the first moment that he met us (on time) we knew we were in good hands. His English is superb and his knowledge of the Old City was both broad and deep. We didn't waste a minute and felt that we definitely got more than our money's worth.

An outstanding and knowledgeable local guide. Conversant on a broad range of unique and interesting local sites, reponsive to the needs of the group, listens extremely well and assures that information is conveyed clearly and concisely to the group as a whole. Our 5 hour tour exposed us to various modes of transit, exposure to local customs and insights into important topics affecting life in Stockholm and the country as a whole. Well done Joel, it was a pleasure to have spent the time with you.

Michael StoreyUnited States
Joel was great! Prior to the tour he was very responsive with communication. During the tour he was wonderful about pacing the tour so everyone in our group (ages 42 to 82) could keep pace and was comfortable. He was very knowledgable about the history of Sweden as well as the buildings and architecture in Stockholm. Joel has a welcoming demeanor and we felt very comfortable around him. When I make it back to Sweden we will definately utilize him again and if he ever come to Boston we hope he contacts us.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi! Thank you, I had a great day touring with you and your family! Hope I see you in Boston in the future! Regards Joel

Louis GerstenfeldUnited States
Joel was prompt to arrive at the hotel and was very knowledgeable about the sites we visited. He allowed the walking tour to proceed at a comfortable pace, and we visited many of the key tourist sites within Stockholm. At none of the sites we visited did I feel rushed to meet a tour schedule. He was very pleasant to chat with and helped me to find a nice shop to buy gifts and mementos of my visit. I would highly recommend him for individual and family tours.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Louis, it was a pleasure meeting you. All the best! // joel

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.
