We were lucky to go during a quiet period and as a result we had a private tour, just the two of us and the guide who was very friendly and knowledgeable about the food as well as the city. The tour was at a steady pace with time to look around where we wanted to. The stops are well chosen, especially the fish restaurant in the market and the chocolate shop (Chokladfabriken). We wondered if the licorice stop would have an alternative or a pallet cleanser as it has such a strong flavour for people who want to try it but don't want to keep the after taste. All in all we had a great time and would recommend it as a way to explore the city and learn about some of Stockholm's history and culture.
Nice tour, knowledgeable guide and well-balanced, interesting stops (sweet & savory). Overall a great experience! Only the last stop in Old Town for the cinnamon bun was rather underwhelming and unlovingly organised by the Café. Even though the weather was brilliant, they seated us in a dark cellar vault (where you can also find the toilets). Buns were dry and coffee cold before a group member reuested fresh hot coffee. I'd recommend the tour organiser to look for a different partner for this last stop. A nice and fresh cinnamon bun on the street would have left a better last impression of the tour that was otherwise a really pleasent and rewarding experience. Thanks!
Theresa was a great guide. Knowledgeable about food, local history, the areas we passed through, and fun. We acted on one of her restaurant recommendations a couple of days later and enjoyed an amazing dinner at Lisa Elmqvist. We also had an interesting, small group for this tour which really enhanced the whole experience. The tour information promised enough food through the tastings for a full meal and we were not disappointed. We were also served a local beer ("breakfast beer" given the time of day!) and had a pleasant Sauvignon Blanc at a stop at a quite elegant resto. I'd recommend this tour to anyone interested in experiencing the flavours of Sweden.
We had a great time on this tour. The food was plentiful and delicious and the information and learning provided was outstanding. We really enjoyed our time with Soma and feel it was so very worth it. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone interested in delicious food and great information on Sweden.
Where to start with this review, the tour was excellent, the guide (Sona) knowledgeable , excellent presentation, so awesome too talk too and ask questions of , the tastings were all good sized , if not too much sometimes. Highly recommend too anyone that travels too Stockholm.
