Simona provided me with the perfect introduction for my brief stay in Stockholm. While the tour is labelled "Old Town", Simona accommodated my interests and we were able to see parts of the Modern town also. While we walked, she shared her knowledge of Swedish history and culture while helping me plan the rest of my stay. And if the name Simona makes you skeptical of how Swedish she is, she is half-Swedish, half-Italian; and that means you get her knowledge of Sweden combined with her Italian warmth.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jim, thank you very much for your nice review! It was a pleasure to show you Stockholm and I hope you enjoyed some nice days here. If you plan to come back here with your family I will be happy to show you more. All the best, Simona
Andrea JohnstonUnited States

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Andrea! Happy to read that you (all!) enjoyed the tour.

Eric WapnickUnited States
Simona was a wonderful guide. We were on a cruise ship and so only had a few hours and set up a tour based on what we wanted to see most (obviously couldn't do everything!). She knew the tour bus itineraries and so scheduled our visits best to avoid the crowds - very helpful when you only have a few hours! She was also incredibly knowledgeable. Any question that popped in to our heads she was able to fully answer, many times with stories. Would definitely recommend Simona.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Eric! Thank you very much! I hope you bring nice memories of Stockholm, it was nice to meet you all! Best regards, Simona
Brian HurdUnited States

Humberto CalderaUnited States
Excellent guide. You learn the history and do all the sightseeing in a very comfortable pace. She gave us excellent recommendations for shopping and restaurants in the city
Fantastic day with Simona and our driver Robin. We only had one full day to explore Stockholm and Simona customised a tour for us to show us the best of this city. With Simona as our guide we gained entry to the town hall which is an amazing building and learned a lot about the Nobel prize awards and ceremonies. A visit to the Vasa and a tour through the old town were also highlights. Would not hesitate to recommend Simona if you want a personalised tour of Stockholm
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind words, it was a pleasure to show you Stockholm! I hope you have a wonderful stay in Abisko!

Had an amazing day with Simona. She worked with us to create a custom tour (Vasa museum, city hall, and the ice bar) to match our needs and even threw in a few wonderful surprises like lunch in the Nobel museum. She is very knowledgeable and treats you like a family friend.

Perfect walking tour of Stockholm. Energetic with great command of English. Made herself available for questions throughout our trip for everything. Saved us from some tourist trap restaurants. Perfect guide.

Brian D.University Park, MDM, United States
Simona was great. She responded to our ever evolving plans and needs, adapting up to the last minute to suit our purposes. The unusual nature of our booking--assistance with an art project that included simultaneous translation--drew on Simona's skills as an engaging and personable individual. She was a delight to work with. Hope to have an opportunity to book her for a full tour the next visit to Stockholm.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your review! It was really amazing to participate in this amazing art project, even if just for one day ;) / Simona

Ambrina SayedUnited States
I had an amazing experience observing Stockholm with Simona! I had only a few hours to spend in the city, and I am very thankful to Simona that she adjusted her schedule to work with mine. Simona is a very scrupulous guide. She is very responsive, too, has a great knowledge of the city, and is always willing to answer any questions. Throughout my tour, Simona and I calmly walked around the downtown of the city, took a boat and a tramvai. Overall, it was a very very enjoyable time spent with a great person
Keith SchwartzUnited States
My wife and I just completed a five hour private tour with Simona. I selected her as a guide based on her review and ratings and we could not have been more pleased. She is knowledgeable but all aspects of the city, history, culture, economy etc. we had only one day in Stockholm and she helped us see everything we wanted to do in our tour. One of the best tours and guides we have ever used. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a world class day! Thank you Simona, Keith & Lisa
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Keith and Lisa, it was such a pleasure to spend the day with you, your positve energy and true interest in Stockholm made this tour extra joyful! Thank you and I wish you wonderful days during your cruise. Simona
Jim MorganUnited States
Simona was amazing. From the moment I contacted her to ask for a special private group tour all the way through to the end of the tour, she was a delight. So knowledgeable of so many interesting facts about Sweden! She created a special tour for us based on my suggestions, while including ideas of her own for us. Two days later, and my friends are still talking about how wonderful she is. Thanks, Simona. Next time I'm in Stockholm, you're my guide!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jim, thank you and it was such a pleasure to show you Stockholm to you and your wonderful friends! I hope you enjoyed the north as well! All the best, Simona
Lisa WalkerUnited States
Wonderful experience in beautiful Stockholm. Simona was knowledgeable and a joy to learn from.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Lisa! It was a pleasure, I hope you had a great time in Kiruna! Simona
Fantastic tour with Simona. We were there at the end of November. Let her take you ...
Simona is not only a nice person, as she is eager to give the most of herself in order to inform historical facts and peculiarities of the town. I strongly recommend this tour especially in Stockholm, because it is a difficult city to get to know without a good guide. The city has many bridges, islands and we simply get lost without orientation. Thank you, Simona,and keep doing the good job!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Clelia, thank you very much, we had a nice day together. I hope the rest of your trip in Iceland was also interesting. All the best.
Janie TiptonUnited States
How to describe the vivacious and so knowledgable Simona! We benefited by her love of history and learned so much. We know little about Russia, but her descriptions of Russia and Sweden gave us a clearer viewpoint of history. She is charming and the day of adventures was wonderful. Thank you Simone!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Janie, thank you. We had a fantasic day and I am happy to hear you enjoyed it. (I hope your scooter 'behavied well' the rest of the trip ;))
We are a canadian family of 5 ( 2 adults and 3 daughters 19/17/14). We had the chance of having Simona as guide for a 4 hours walking tour in Stockholm. Even if we were late (problems not related to us), and had to deal with teenagers, she kept her smile and her good attitude during the whole visit. She was very knowledgeable and knew how to pace our family through big groups. We highly recommend Simona.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Claude, thank you very much, I am happy to hear that you enjoyed our visit in Stockholm. And we did have a bit of unluck with the 'logistic';). I hope you had a nice and safe trip back to Canada! / Simona
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Tova! Thank you, it was really nice to meet you and guide you the city.. and the Pride Parade;)! I hope you will have nice days in Stockholm.
