Book a Guide

Stockholm Tourist Service / Guide Booking works only with Certified Stockholm guides authorized by Stockholm Visitors Board (City of Stockholm).

Certified Stockholm Guides

Certified guides undertake a one year guide education course and many have special knowledge in various fields such as history, architecture and much more. Certified guides undertake certification exams ensuring their guide and language skills are assessed on a regular basis.
