We had a wonderful tour with Jessica. We had already seen several aspects of Stockholm as we had been her for 3 days. Jessica took what we had learned and expanded it to give us a full day intensive tour of Stockholm. You can tell she really has a deep love of her community and gave us historical commentary to back it up. She also was gracious enough to take us to the English school my daughter was to begin teaching at on an exchange program. She earns 5 stars. This is the only way to tour Stockholm!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Many thanks to you all and the best of luck to your daughter here in Stockholm!

Jessica provided us with the perfect introduction to Stockholm. She was welcoming and calm which was just what we needed after a somewhat hassled arrival in the city. She is a good driver and her car was comfortable. She recognized that my husband was still recovering from knee-replacement surgeries and planned our drop-off points accordingly. We can recommend her services highly.

Sharon LaineUnited States
Although my husband had been to Stockholm many years earlier, this was my first time to Stockholm and Jessica made it great! She was full of energy and knew so much about the city, and surrounding area, that I left feeling like I really knew Stockholm. We had specific things we wanted to see and she made sure we got to see them all plus some. Her suggestion for lunch was fabulous, and she even fit in my requested 'fika' experience. I hope to be able to tour with her again. If you have the chance, do it.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Sharon and Seppo, It was a true pleasure meeting you both and thank you so much for your kind words! As you know they caught the bad guys and it was the talk of the town here on the island - quite exciting! All the best! Jessica

Jessica was wonderful! Extremely informative, very knowledgeable, easy to listen to, well paced tour suited to our needs. I would not hesitate to recommend her.

Great lady, great guide

D Jeffrey BlumenthalChicago, ILLINOIS, United States
Our day was long, but perfect. Not only did we get the "day tour of Stockholm highlights," but had a number of locations customised to include items of particular interest, i.e. genealogy of my grandparents. Her knowledge of Stockholm and history is deep, for example the Vasa Museum. Her English is perfect. She taught me how to use public transportation and even got my wife's phone SIM card working.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Many thanks for you kind words and it was such fun following in the foot steps of your ancestors. Next time you also must include a visit to Gränna! Don't forget the book "The City of My Dreams" by Per Anders Fågelström - about Stockholm during the time your ancestors lived in here. Best regards, Jessica
David LittUnited States
Our past experience with Tours By Locals had been excellent, and Jessica did not disappoint. She was punctual, articulate, and knowledgeable. She guided us in an overview of Stockholm, highlighting the sites we should return to in greater depth, and told us how best to access public transportation or just walking. Whether shopping or restaurant tips, Jessica was just what we needed for our initial view of Stockholm and Sweden.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Many thanks for your words. I hope you enjoyed the rest of your stay in Stockholm. All the best, Jessica
Thomas ChanceUnited States
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks!
We were a group of 14 and had the most wonderful day with Jessica. Our tour highlights were the Abba museum and the Vasa museum. We had a fabulous time in the Abba museum you could spend the whole day there if you are a fan. The Vasa museum was the most amazing place and Jessica made it even better giving us a full guided tour. If you are lucky enough to go make sure Jessica is your guide you won't regret it.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Helen, Thank you so much for your very kind words. I am so glad you enjoyed both the Abba and Vasa museum. Don't forget to you watch your ABBA performances once you are back connected to a computer! I hope the rest of your trip was a success. All the best to you all....Jessica

Amazing sculptures done by his visions are uncomparable. Her knowledge helped us to understand them in small part. We loved driving around the lovely and peaceful Lidingo Island. This was a great second tour of Stockholm!

Jessica was waiting for us as we disembarked from our cruise. She loaded our heavy luggage into her spacious car. She was very personable, and adapted the driving tour to suit our interests. We only had a few hours before having to drive to the airport, but in that short time she gave us a good feel for the beautiful city of Stockholm (despite the rain clouds) and delivered us with plenty of time to catch our flight. Thanks Jessica!

John McFaddenUnited States
Jessica was absolutely amazing!!! Even though the day started out rainy, her plan was flawless to make sure we were not impacted! Her knowledge of Stockholm was superfuless and felt like we saw everything possible in the time we had. While we hit everything on the list of must-see's in Stockholm, it was the places not on the list she showed us and her knowledge that was the real gem. Would unequivocally use Jessica again, can't imagine our trip without her!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your very kind words. I hope you come back very soon and that you enjoyed your holiday!

Jessica was so well-informed, so well-attuned to what we wanted and such a lovely person. Despite the rain, we managed an awesome day.

In the days following our tour, we realized how valuable it really was and how much we learned from Jessica. Highly recommended!

We feel like we made a new friend in Stockholm! Jessica was an amazing guide! As the daughter of am ambassador and a well-traveled person, she was keyed in to the perspectives we might want to explore. We not only saw the sights but learned a lot about life in Sweden! She thoughtfully took us to places throughout the city, was flexible when we wanted to change up the itinerary. We stopped for a "Fika" and she selected the perfect place for lunch! She made us fall in love with Stockholm!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your very kind comments - I hope I get to see you next time you are in Sweden. Welcome back - Välkomna!
William BeasleyUnited States
Terrific guide. There were 4 of us and two of us had mobility issues. Jessica took it all in stride, even bringing her own car to avoid public transportation. She knew ALL about Stockholm and in the market would point out each product or fish and tell us about it and how it was usually prepared. Perfect English (better than mine, probably). She was great. Highly recommend this tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Many thanks Bill for your comment. It was a pleasure having you here in Stockholm. Here is the recipe for your wife: Salmon (approx. 1 kg), remove any bones and freeze. 1/4 cup sugar 1/4 cup salt 1 tsp crushed white pepper Dill and one lemon Defrost the salmon. Cover it all over with the salt, sugar and pepper mixture. Add the dill – plenty of it and grate the rind of 1 lemon. Leave in plastic bag in fridge weighted (turning it round occasionally) 2-3 days. Clean and slice thinly. Good luck! Jessica

Joseph RomanoWall, NJ, United States
GREAT... it was more than shopping but a historical experience. Jessica made our stay sice Obama decided to visit at the last moment and the city "closed down" - she got us around and we saw a great deal. We purchased some glass without pressure and really appreciate he efforts and caring for our well being. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED WITHOUT HESITANCY. Thank you.
Joseph RomanoWall, NJ, United States
Jessica was wonderful, engaging and well informed... this was a casual walking tour which showcased many exterior historical sites and wonderful Swedish lifestyles. We traveled by ferry, tram and foot!!! The market visit was great to see and we even returned and ate there the next day - terrific seafood. Jessica knew Stockholm especially the food experiences and made reservations for us... she was terrific! All this while the city prepared for the Obama visit - she managed to get us around the city.
