I had the pleasure to walk around Stockholm accompanied by Stanley. He told me many interesting things and anecdotes that made the experience even more beautiful. He was also so kind to be my guide on a rainy day and in an inconvenient period, such as December. He answered all my questions and was really nice. I recommend him and his tour to everyone who wants to learn more about Stockholm history.

Sehr schöne Highlights wurden ausgewählt für die Tour. Bildmaterial von früher zum Vergleich ist vorhanden und wird in den Vortrag eingebunden. Auf jede Frage gab es eine Antwort und die Zeit verging wie im Flug. Eine sehr schöne Tour und wenn man, wie wir, nur einen Tag in Stockholm verbringt, hat man dennoch das wohlige Gefühl, dass man sehr viel Schönes und Wichtiges gesehen hat.
