What you'll do

Guaranteed small groups. Walk with me learning how a collection of simple twists of fate evolved into significant historical figures who helped shape Stockholm (and Sweden) culturally and politically. Beginning at the geographical center of Stockholm we walk through cultural history from 1611 - today! Amazingly every story connects together. Anything you want to know about Stockholm and Sweden this is the perfect forum to ask. This is a light-hearted story of Stockholm written over 5 years to give you an entertaining overview of modern Swedish history. Along the way we see local inner city living - Stockholm style. The difference in my tour compared to others is that we avoid the heavily touristy area of Gamla Stan, instead we will walk through streets, squares and parks most tourists will never have the pleasure of experiencing themselves. Some of these places and stories are unknown to locals as well. This is designed to be a social experience first; storytelling second and tour guiding third. The social interaction is the most enjoyable aspect of walking tours. Everyone is welcome! Everyone is encouraged to get to know me and other guests

Ryan

As a guide for over a decade I have lived and breathed Northern European history; as a father of two girls in Sweden I have lived and breathed the modern Swedish social system; as a lover of food and drink I have lived and breathed Swedish culture and traditions. Welcome to Stockholm! My Airbnb experiences are designed to be informative; light-hearted; entertaining but most importantly encourage interaction with me and other travellers. I package together my knowledge of history + storytelling along with my personal experiences of growing up in Australia - to travelling and guiding around Europe - to raising a family in Sweden. It is a unique spin on history and culture that guide books can not give. Travelling is the people you meet. I love meeting new people hopefully I can meet you on one of my experiences. Duration: 90 - 120 min
