We meet and greet each other at the meeting point for our brief walk to an award winning bakery for a modern Swedish breakfast - you choose if you want a 'lite' or 'full' version. This is where we get to know each other and you will get a great introduction into modern Swedish society and culture. After breakfast we visit two historical museums where we step back in time to when Stockholm was founded. We also follow in the footsteps of the royal families past and present - you can discover how their trials and tribulations correlate to the outcome of Swedish history. Lunch will be taken at a little gem of a place in the Old Town. It is my favourite example of local farm produce done really well. I will let you judge for yourself. Vegetarian option is available. They have locally brewed craft beer or local non-alcoholic options. The third part we go to the cool island of Södermalm. Walk to take pictures of the best views or check out another museum on how everyday life in Stockholm has changed over the centuries. Majority of this experience is indoors to avoid the cold weather, there is no better way to spend a day in Stockholm then to experience history; culture; modern cuisine than with your own expert private guide.
As a guide for over a decade I have lived and breathed Northern European history; as a father of two girls in Sweden I have lived and breathed the modern Swedish social system; as a lover of food and drink I have lived and breathed Swedish culture and traditions. Welcome to Stockholm! My Airbnb experiences are designed to be informative; light-hearted; entertaining but most importantly encourage interaction with me and other travellers. I package together my knowledge of history + storytelling along with my personal experiences of growing up in Australia - to travelling and guiding around Europe - to raising a family in Sweden. It is a unique spin on history, culture and cuisine that guide books can not give. Travelling is the people you meet. I love meeting new people hopefully I can meet you on one of my experiences.

We have breakfast in a bakery along the water - goods baked fresh daily. AtThe Royal Armoury Museum. I will explain my extensive knowledge of the Royals that have shaped Sweden from a political perspective. In the Medieval Museum I will show you first hand how the everyday people lived in Middle Ages. Lunch is taken at a modern Swedish restaurant - better than meatballs! We finish by seeing 21st Century everyday Swedish living in Södermalm.
Majority of the experience is indoors but some walking is involved going from place to place. If the weather permits more time can be spent outside if so desired. Vegetarian options are available but the bakery is 100% ecological so it is not vegan.
