I was born in Portugal, lived in many different cities in Southern Europe until halfway through my childhood, when my whole family moved back to Canada, where my mom is from. In 2020, at the height of the pandemic, I moved to Stockholm to pursue my Master's degree and have since found my place as an entrepreneur and community-builder in this city. For the first time in my whole life, I feel like I'm finally home, here in Stockholm. I love exploring museums, parks, and third places in Stockholm, so if you would like to get a local's perspective on what's like to live in Stockholm, join me on one of my experiences!

I booked the tour a week before. the guide messaged me to propose another date which doesn't suit me and I messaged him the DAY D to know if the tour is still going on, no answer, I sent many messages and I was there at the meeting place ahead of time , then the guide cancelled tour saying they don't have minimum !! another person was participating also. This is a really bad approach, to cancel or to change dates when we are approaching the tour date. I have my schedule and we, tourists, come from far away with specific days and we cannot jungle and change hour or date as the guide did !!!!! he is a local, he needs to be flexible and arrange time, if he puts tours everyday, he needs to be able to guide everyday, and not to change the tourist plan !!! anyway, I would not recommand this guide. not professional

Ended up with a private tour because all the softies cancelled last minute due to it being too cold. I was never cold with the route taken, and Frankie customised the tour on the fly giving me pointers to things completely unrelated to the tour too. I had lots of fun and thankyou very much.

Fran was cordial, professional and engaging. The tour responded to our group's interest and allowed for us to delve into details of interest. Whilst focused on design and architecture, we gained deep insights into thr culture, society and history of the city and its people.
