Our Story

Our story begins April 6th 2011. At the time there were two of us. We had just finished our training as guides, and having worked in the tourism industry in Stockholm for many years, we felt a need to contribute. We asked ourselves: what do we enjoy when we travel?

People, culture, customs, time to wine, dine and enjoy the company of our travel companions. We agreed that the best way to experience a country is to meet an enthusiastic local who is able to share funny facts and insights into the customs and culture of the country. This person would probably also know where to go for a good meal. We asked ourselves – can we build a business around that idea?

We can and we are. Over the past few years people have come again and again, and today we have 18 wonderful guides spread across Copenhagen, Oslo, and Stockholm who want nothing more than to share their city with YOU.

And we want you to be a part of our story too. Welcome!
