Leet me show you around the shops and other must sees of Stockholm


Sweden is famous for its glass, minimalist designs and meatballs! On this tour I would like to show you where you can buy that perfect present to bring home with you? You can find everything from a unique piece of hand blown glass to a beautiful small vase that easily fits into your hand luggage. I will show you what is typically Swedish and with the "fika" tell you about our Swedish ways and traditions.

What is "fika"? The wikipedia explanation of "fika" is;

Fika is both a Swedish verb and noun (pronounced "fee-ka") that roughly means "to drink coffee/tea/squash, " usually accompanied by something sweet.

. . . and when we need a rest from the shopping tour we will have ourselves a well deserved "fika".

Whatever your choice and budget, let me show you some of the best shops in Stockholm. Tell me what you are especially interested in and I will make sure you don't miss out on anything.

Itinerary

We will walk through the shopping area entering the stores of your choice. I will show you the shops where you can find what you are looking for.

I will also provide you with a map and mark out the shops of interest, should you wish to return there on your own at a later stage

We will also stop for a coffee break and sample some traditional Swedish pastries. A typical Swedish "fika".

A Recent Review of this tour

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.
