On this special tour to Uppsala, one of the oldest cities in Sweden, you’ll be guided by an experienced local guide, Logbi. You’ll learn about the history and life in Uppsala by visiting the hidden gems as well as the main attractions. Today, that place happens to be historic Uppsala city. You’ll take a jaunt on the train with me as your local guide and we'll spend the day exploring Uppsala. We’ll visit the oldest Gothic cathedral in Scandinavia (what a title) and uncover Uppsala’s Viking and medieval roots. We could go one step further (alright a few steps, and also a short bus ride) to Gamla Uppsala, which is the ancient pagan part of the city, where you can still see the Viking royal burial mounds. We’ll visit hidden gems as well as some not so hidden gems, like the university which was founded in 1477 and maybe pop into a museum or gallery that takes your fancy, where you can learn more about Swedish culture. When it’s time for lunch, which it inevitably will be, feel free to let me know if you’re in the mood for something Swedish or you want to go more international, and he’ll take you to a right cafe, a market or a restaurant for it.
I did hold a degree in Hospitality & Tourism, at the moment I am a freelance tour guide in the city of Stockholm and also offer my services to other platforms such as TripAdvisor. Since 2016, I am conducting city and sightseeing tours mainly for cruise ship travellers during port stopover in English , French and Italian around the iconic tourist attractions in the city such as : the Royal Palace, the Old Town, the City Hall, the Vasa , Skansen Open-Air museums...
