Excellent, knowledgeable, friendly. Five out of five.
Grazie Davide for an AMAZING day in Stockholm! Travelling with teens (13 &15) can be tough. Davide kept them interested with his extensive knowledge of the city. Davide recommended we visit the Vasa Museum and so glad we did! A must see if you are in Stockholm. We wanted to visit the Ice Bar and Davide made reservations for us. The day ran perfectly thanks to Davide! He was waiting for us at the pier when our ship docked and made sure we got back on time to board. Book Davide & you won't be disappointed!

If you are short for time an excellent way to see Stockholm in 3 hours , Davide is an excellent guide very knowledgeable on the Geographical area of the Stockholm and also on its history over the years Good for kids as well as , would say 12+ as although a lot of cycle lanes it does get busy 5 stars to this tour
Harriet LeitnerUnited States
Davide was a wonderful, knowledgeable guide. He went out of his way to accommodate the needs of our group, especially adapting the tour when one of our group had difficulty walking and keeping up with the group.

Wonderful day shared with Davide!
Ian GudgeonUnited States
Davide was a great tour guide. We enjoyed and felt extremely comfortable with his presence. He was more than accommodating and was extremely knowledgable. We asked him to take us into the Vasa Museum which was not highlighted as part of the tour. He did this and fit everything else in as well. Thank you very much Davide.
Suzanne EadesUnited States
Davide was very knowledgeable and managed our timing quite well. Strongly recommend!
Vibha GoyalSafety Harbor, FL, United States
Our guide Davide was amazingly friendly, and took our desires for the tour as primary need, very perceptive of what we would like showed us all the things we wanted and also we had no idea of because they were not real touristy things to do. We loved them! You made our day and will recommend you to any body. �� Vibha G.
Mike GormanUnited States
Can't believe how lucky we were to have this outstanding guide. We had 7 persons in our group and he made all of us feel like we were treated like individuals. Great historical knowledge of Sweden as well as well spoken English.
Leonard KramUnited States
Marianne SoderbergStockholm, Sweden
Davide took me and my American friends on a city tour of Stockholm by car. Davide has a very deep knowledge of the Stockholm and Swedish history. He is friendly, engaging and admitted when he didn't have an answer to a question which was very rare. He had a very well laid out plan for our four hours and we felt that we got a very good overview of the city. We highly recommend Davide as a guide and will definitely seek him out for new adventures.
Deborah HerrudUnited States
We had a wonderful time on our tour with Davide. He went out of his way to show us the often overlooked parts of Old Town and Sodermalm and to fill in the history of the area in a way that brought it alive. We learned to much about the area and fell in love with Stockholm.
Kaye C.BELDEN, MS, United States
Excellent information and very accommodating with family of 6 including 2 children
Gary StephensonUnited States
It was our first visit to Stockholm and Davide did a wonderful job of showing us both the city and countryside. He has a wonderful knowledge of the history and culture of the country and made it both fun and educational. We especially appreciate the way he customized the tour to our interests and needs.
Charis LaskyUnited States
The description of this tour sounded great, but the actual tour and this guide exceeded our expectations. He took us to some places off the beaten path and as many of the islands of the Stockholm archipelago as he could. He chose a restaurant with excellent food and a very beautiful setting on a lake near the palace. This tour and this guide were outstanding.
John C.United States
Davide was wonderful, great knowledge of Stockholm and the area, very accomodating and polite, I would definitely recommend Davide!
Patricia LifrakUnited States
Davide is an extremely knowledgeable, experienced and wonderful guide. He is also very kind and accommodating, and considerate of the tourists needs. He will go the extra mile to make sure you have a great and pleasant time. We highly recommend him, and had an excellent experience and fun time with him!
Jean OstertagMt Vernon, TX, United States
Davide was perfect. Took us to great places. Very knowledgeable. He was friendly, very detailed and fun. Would recommend him.
Joyce O.Henderson, HENDERSON, United States
Spectacular city tour of Stockholm with Davide B. He is a great guy who is very knowledgeable about Stockholm and Swedish history. He tailored the tour to our needs. Arrived in a very nice Volvo that easily accommodated the four of us. Would highly recommend him and his tour . We hope to meet again!
Linda CohenUnited States
This was an absolutely exciting tour! We went all over the place and enjoyed every bit of it. The mini gardens for people were much fun to see. The Segways were running perfectly and it was just loads of fun to roll around Stockholm with David as our guide. Thank you David! If you are ever in Guatemala, give us a call.
David was a great guide. We were a tough group with 8 people, very excited and playful about starting our vacation. David was a super sport and caught on our mood super fast. He was knowledgeable about sites and contributed that our visit in Stockholm was a memorable one. Thank you David!
Jeffrey McCrearyUnited States
John BoyceUnited States
Our tour this morning with Davide was fantastic. He was a wealth of information and loved sharing it with us. He was very accommodating and even the rain didn't damp his spirit nor his agenda. Thanks to him we leave our short visit of Stockholm very informed. He is certainly a 5 star guide. Melanie
Tiffany LoweryUnited States
Our tour on the Segway was absolutely wonderful. Davide did such a great job and showed us some great views of Stockholm. My four teenagers had the time of their life. It was the first time any of us had taken Segways and Davide taught us all how to ride them so well. We didn't have any problems driving them during our tour. I highly recommend Davide for a fun time and interesting way to see Stockholm!!
David BonnetUnited States
Wonderful knowledgeable fun flexible
Patricia G.United States
Davide was great in every way. We appreciate the flexibility of places visited and the spur of the moment changes because of things we were interested in. His knowledge and genuine interest is very much reflected in his tours. Absolutely would recommend him and toursbylocals.
Sheryl ManningUnited States
Davide was perfect! Good energy, extremely knowledgeable, highly engaging and very fun to be with. We have used many guides over the years, and he is as good as they come. We loved our time with him and would highly recommend him.
Greg YatmanUnited States
The combination of Stockholm sights, interesting historical facts, various methods of public transit and overall care Davide provide to us during the tour made our experience exactly what we'd hope for and more. We really appreciated the pace, the sights and the advice he provided for the tour and post-tour activities - including one of the best meals in memory at Fem Små Hus in Gamla Stan.
Regina PatzUnited States
We were provided a unique opportunity to take in the local countryside with an insightful and well versed guide. Davide was personable and quite knowledgeable. We were able to see all we hoped and got quite the hitory lesson as well.
an Italian who is very well rounded individual and his information exceeds Stockholm- Sweden
Phyllis LowSingapore, Singapore
Davide is our best guide thus far. We've used ToursByLocal guides in Europe and Asia and he definitely one of the best. He's knowledgeable, answering all our questions and even brought us to attractions which are not covered in any of other tours. He's also patient and catered to needs of 4 seventy year olds! Will definitely recommend ToursByLocal to other friends. Thanks!
Steven MartinezUnited States
Kim PenneyUnited States
Davide may not be a Swde but his "outsider, insider" perspective was fascinating. Our grown kids and spouses enjoyed walking a few of the neighborhoods and getting a Stockholm lite history lesson. As this was our last stop on Baltic cruise we didn't want a ton of dates but yet gain insight to this beautiful city. Highly recommend Davide.
Barbara PlotnickUnited States
David was a great tour guide. Gave us a wonderful taste of Stockholm and great ideas for the rest of our time in Stockholm.
Robert StovallUnited States
During 4 European cruises, we have used TBL more than 2 dozen times. A VERY few guides rated 4 stars & the rest rated 5, but Davide (& one other) would rate 6 stars in comparison. He was knowledgeable & personable, but most important he tailored the destinations to include not only the "usual tour stops", but also stops (like the stora mossen) that reveal more about the lives of the Swedes. The tour was negotiated over 2 or 3 email exchanges & he nailed exactly what we wanted. Book him if you can.
Susan KossUnited States
Davide was an interesting and thoughtful guide. We saw a great deal of Stockholm and enjoyed our morning-highly recommended.
Richard MarchaseUnited States
Davide was great. Very knowledgable, considerate, and personable. Couldn't be more pleased.
Davide was the perfect guide. He understood what I wanted from the tour and worked around it. I would strongly recommend him.
Alan WeinsteinUnited States
Davide was excellent on every account. Knowledgeable, Friendly, Accommodating. He was very easy to talk with and wove his story around our questions. Rather than simply reciting his script. I am also a professional tour guide (In Washington, DC) so I know talent when I see it. He is an excellent representative of the industry as a whole and Stockholm in particular. Anybody would be lucky to have him as a guide.
Cindi DoyleUnited States
Penny SeldinUnited States
David's was excellent, extremely knowledgable about the history and lovely to be with. He took us to places that we would never have seen on a tour bus. I would go on another tour with him in a minute.
David SimonUnited Kingdom
Davide was a splendid guide. Very informative and with a broad European view. we thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Many thanks, Davide
Peter WernickiUnited States
What a great guide and what a great trip! We all loved it. He was the best!
John LynchUnited States

Paul SidikmanUnited States
Andrew SeborUnited States
Wonderful customized tour. On time and well informed guide. Would definitely use again next trip.
Rebecca RadovichUnited States
This tour with Davide in Stockholm was by far the highlight of our stay! He was fun, knowledgable, very accommodating of our group and made sure we had the best tour of Stockholm. We did the Summer Sunset Tour and the views he showed us were just amazing. I know we would never have experienced all we did if not for Davide's tour. Our group of 4 couldn't stop talking about this tour! He even agreed to take us to a true locals place for a beverage along the way! It was AMAZING!!
Joseph P.Fishers, IN, United States
This is a great family excursion! We toured with our 14-year-old grandson who clearly enjoyed the day. The Segway made it fun for him, but it wasn't just the Segway that made this a memorable tour. Davide also showed us all of the major sights during our tour as well as some hidden gems. He has extensive knowledge of the country and the city, and more insight into them than most guides. Yet he was friendly, humorous, flexible, and spoke impeccable English. This is a great tour by a great guide!
Helen ShortUnited States
Davide was great. Gave good advice re sights and metro use. Provided insight on Stockholm and the people as well as a great overview of the islands of Stockholm. The Segway portion was a blast. Great fun and an easy way to see more of the area.
Eric NelsonUnited States
Our tour of Stockholm with Davide was great. We were able to pack in a lot of things in a short period of time. Davide took us to some areas with great panoramic views and shared with us his perspective of life and culture in this beautiful city. We visited the Vasa museum and learned about the tragic history of the ship and the interesting story regarding it's discovery and restoration. We finished the day in old town viewing the historical structures, viewing the changing of the guard. It was a great.
James R.United States
Having toured with ToursByLocals on other holidays, we had extremely high expectations for the Stockholm Old Town Tour. Davide met and even exceeded these expectations. He readily adapted the private tour to our wishes. He was knowledgeable and personable. Rather than a 4 hour tour as contracted, Davide provided a tour that exceeded 6 hours. Even at the end of the tour, we sat and talked for another hour (over beer, of course!). Without reservation, we recommend Davide to any traveler.
Karen WamplerUnited States
Davide is amazing -- extremely knowledgable. He also worked hard to make a plan that would maximize our day making adjustments as we went. It is also helpful that he has the perspective of an "outsider" since he was not raised in Sweden. His background in art and literature and history add even more richness to the experience.
George BloodworthUnited States
Our tour given by Davide on July 8 was exactly what we wanted. Not only is Davide very knowledgable of Stockholm, he communicates well and is a very good listener. We throughly enjoyed our tour. Thank you Davide.
Dana DavisUnited States
Davide was very good and he knew his historical facts very well. Our visit to the Vassa Museum was wonderful. He showed us where to eat lunch and called a reliable taxi company to pick us up at a certain time to take us back to the ship. Very enjoyable. Highly recommend!
Jeffrey BradfordUnited States
GREAT summary tour of Stockholm, glad we went. Learned a lot about Stockholm. Davide was a great guide.
Antonia G.Coral Gables, FL, United States
Davide was recommended by friends who had used him as a guide and their comments were spot on. He is an excellent guide - punctual, knowlegable, friendly and flexible. we had a wonderful morning with him and would love to do other walks with him. We have done many guided walks in cities in Europe and Davide is among the best we have experienced.
Laura SikoUnited States
Davide was great! Very knowledgeable and professional. He made the one hour train ride out to Nyansham to meet us at our ship and made sure we were on the correct train to retun to the ship! Our only regret was that we did not have more time in port to enjoy Davide and Stockholm!!
Eric van AroSwitzerland
Just Perfect. Davide knows the city inside out and I got to see way more than I thought. Truly enjoyed this tour!
Bj HarrisUnited States
Davide was an EXCEPTIONAL guide in Stockholm. He is very knowledgeable about the area and added interesting commentary as we walked all over the city. Even tho we did a lot of walking, we also took each kind of public transportation offered and it was fun to experience how the locals travel to and fro. Davide went above and beyond what we expected and at the end of our tour, he joined us for lunch - which was delicious - and we got a chance to know Davide even better. I would HIGHLY recommend Davide.
Jon L.Dorena, OR, United States
Davide met us promptly at the cruise terminal and off we went!! He was careful to keep the pace reasonable for the members of the group. We saw all the highlights of old town Stockholm with relevant history and perspective accompanying each landmark. We stopped for coffee half-way through the 4-hour walk, with Davide taking us to a secreted upstairs restaurant patio. We felt special! Davide was wonderful, and I was thanked profusely by the participants for arranging the tour. Highest recommendations.
Davide was a pleasure to be with. Whilst knowledgeable, he did not lecture us and showed us many things and took us places that we would never have otherwise seen or gone to. He was very easy to talk to, and his English was excellent. All in all a great day out, loved it !!
Joan JarvisUnited States
Davide easily changed the original plans due to rain and gave us a wonderful day. We had purchased public transportation card ahead for us and it was easy to get around town and out of town. This was a great way to see the sights. we loved visiting the local market and a local cafe. The tour of the Hallwyl Museum is something not to miss, especially with Davide as your guide.
Theresa SheffieldUnited States
Davide is awesome!!! We loved his concept of touring Stockholm by public transportation and walking. We truly felt like locals and he took us to some out of the way places that we had never seen before. Our entire group would use him in the future!
James DeaneUnited States
William LeinsterNORTH CAROLINA, United States
Davide did an excellent job of showing us features and neighborhoods that are not usually included in a highlights tour, since we had already seen most of the standard ones. Both couples in our group feel Davide was outstanding!
Marvin MeirsUnited States
Alton FujiiUnited States
See my comments about the Stockholm tour. Similar great results. A top guide.
Alton FujiiUnited States
Outstanding young man. Informative, pleasant, punctual and caring. Group had a great experience. Would recommend him to anyone.
Sandra TilkinUnited States
Davide was knowledgeable, easy to be with, and worked hard to meet our needs by customizing our tour. He did an excellent job of sharing information about Stockholm's history and how people live today in this vibrant city. We would definitely recommend him as a guide to anyone visiting Stockholm.
Celia RubinUnited States
We wish we could rate Davide higher than 5 stars! Not only was he pleasant to us he was helpful to other cruise passengers as we were purchasing our transportation passes for the day. He was extremely knowledgeable about the history, culture, architecture, and customs. We ended our tour at the Botanical Gardens. He mapped out our return trip to the ship by hand to ensure our easy return to the correct cruise terminal. He made our day in Stockholm memorable and we saw more than we even expected to see.
Very interesting tour! We had a lot of fun and learned a lot about the history of Stockholm. Would recommend it to everyone visiting this beautiful city!
Shirley ScarboroughUnited States
Davide was fantastic. It was amazing his knowledge of Stockholm and Sweden and yet he was actually from Milan. He was able to get a car and took us to some wonderful outlying areas that were not just the everyday tourist sights. We had a wonderful lunch in a real green house in the Botanical Gardens. We would reccommend highly and his command of the English language was just outstanding.
Jeffrey DodgeUnited States
An excellent tour and tour guide! There were 12 of us (all adults) in the group. David was very informative, took our questions and answered them with a perspective so that you could more easily understand his response. Everyone in the group was very impressed with David's knowledge, understanding of different cultures, and ability to adapt to the needs/interests of the group members. Very patient and helpful as well ... A great day in Stockholm thanks to David.
Marilyn BurgerUnited States
Davide was the perfect guide for us in Stockholm. He listened to us and our wants and needs and, although we were only in port for 4 hours, made our day in Stockholom one of the highlights of our cruise. We left feeling like we got the perfect glimpse of the city and its highlights and beyond. He was very informed about the city and was very passionate about his job.
Karyn TaubUnited States
Our tour with Davide was perfect. He was extremely knowledgeable and presented background and history for every stop smoothly, flawlessly and with flair; he arranged the tour to include the most sites in the time allotted. His english was perfect. We loved our time in Stockholm with him!
We thoroughly enjoyed Davide's guided tour of Stockholm. Davide's a very knowledgeable and friendly guide. Communication was a breeze and he designed the tour according to our preferences. He also gave lots of valuable tips for our free day. Would definitely recommend.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ja, thank you so so much for your nice words! I am so happy I had the chance to guide you around and had such a great time! I am so glad to read you appreciated the tour and brought a nice memory home! This is the true meaning of my job! :) Have a nice week end in sunny Thailand and, please, if you have the chance, thank the all group! :) Davide
