About the company

The company started in 2019 by STAnley Rutgersson a qualified tourist guide for Stockholm in English and Swedish and member of FSAG (Association of Stockholm’s Authorized Guides).

Originally Stanley grew up in Gothenburg on the west coast of Sweden but moved up to Stockholm area in the early 90's. Besides being a tourist guide he also holds a MSc in Electrical engineering and work at the telecomunications company LM Ericsson AB.

Stanley has a deep interest of Stockholm history, and has specific knowledge about the industrial history from mid 1600 to mid 1900.

The company has been working for the larger DMC companies, mainly by welcoming  tourists arriving by Cruise ships, and then bring them on a guided panorama bus tour, including visits to museums and tourist attractions, e.g. Vasa museum, City Hall, Royal Palace.

We offer a number of walk tours where historical events and anecdotes are told, while showing important places, buildings and monuments.

Tailored walk tours and event packages can also be arranged.

We enjoy meeting people and learn about different cultures in different parts of the world. Please get in touch.
