We had a lovely tour with Monica. She covered as many places as possible within the stipulated time and provided much of the information on every monument visited. Rotlyal palace is a must see. The way she explained about Old Town was fantastic. We ended up going to the old town again. A picturesque marvel in the middle of stockholm. I have no doubt, we will love to ask for Monica's services when we visit Sweden next.

Andres was fantastic! He was very flexible to my needs in terms of timing and he was incredibly knowledgeable. He also provided a variety of options for how and where to visit notable areas during the tour. You can tell he thoroughly enjoys providing tours to visitors. Highly recommended!
