The tour, the guide and the food were all very good. I wish there could have been a sweet and a savoury option for the whole tour as I'm not much of a sweet tooth. Also, there were less stops due to the pandemic, it would probably be even better if we had stopped at more places. Overall, good experience although a bit pricey

Very positive. She provided knowledge & insight into the foods we sampled as we as peripheral information about why these foods are popular with the Swedes. She also interjected interesting facts about the city, weather, and history. She made the tour feel like we were out on the town with one of our family. Awesome experience.
The guide was good and it was a lovely group. Fun with nice tastings mixed with the city's history. Would possibly like more "food" and less sweets.
Great guide. Very knowledgeable, friendly and proffessional. Informative. A five star experience.
Nice as a thousand, was probably 12,000 steps and a full stomach and with many impressions.
Absolutely fantastic. Very nice guide, food fantastic! Highly recommended!
