The "Stockholm Syndrome" tour, guided by Natalie O´Sullivan (Stockholm our way), not only lead us to the well-known places of interest, but showed us cute little places and "unfamiliar" historic locations, too. She explained the facts, but also had to tell so many exciting stories and myths about "puzzle of life and history" of Sweden, Stockholm and its citizens that we plunged into the magic of this city. We were sorry when the tour was over after a 4 hours walk - but since then, we know what the "Stockholm Syndrome" feels like...

Die Segwaytour war einfach großartig! Nach kurzer Einweisung und Überprüfung, ob wir auch sicher mit dem Segway umgehen können, ging es gleich los. Unser Führer war ein super Typ, der uns sehr unterhaltsam viel Information und Geschichten über die Stadt erzählt hat. Wir haben so viel in den zwei Stunden gesehen, und die Zeit verging viel zu schnell.
