Stockholm Royal Palace Tour
Trail of Swedish Royals
Leslie was born in Canada and grew up in the United States before moving to Stockholm in 1982. She and her family spent the '90s in the UK and upon their return to Sweden, Leslie decided to pursue a career that allows her to share her love of Stockholm and unique perspective of Swedish culture. Thereafter she completed her education to become a qualified Stockholm guide and has special interests in architecture, history and contemporary Sweden.
Karin grew up in the Stockholm area and spent her studying years in Uppsala, a university town one hour north of Stockholm, before deciding to move back to the capital. She holds an MA in Languages Education and has been teaching English and French in Swedish schools for about 30 years. To improve her language skills and knowledge of different cultures, she spent time working and studying in the UK, France, Switzerland, and the USA. During her years of studies in Uppsala, she also took some time off to work as a tour leader in Brussels, Paris, and on the Channel island of Jersey. More recently, during the summer holidays, she has hosted passengers traveling through the 58 locks of the Göta Canal, a waterway between the two cities of Stockholm and Göteborg, known as “The Blue Ribbon”. Besides her background in linguistics and culture, her interests are music, dance, art and spending time with friends and family. Working as a qualified Stockholm guide constantly gives her plenty of new discoveries and knowledge about her city.
Lena, a Stockholm native, holds a BA in languages (German and Spanish). She has also graduated in conference interpreting and combines her work as a qualified Stockholm tour guide with interpreting assignments, primarily for the EU institutions. For the past 25 years, she has shown the city of Stockholm to visitors from all over the world. She takes great interest in digging deeper into history and socio-political issues as well as into culture and thinks that both the big lines and the interconnection of things as well as details and anecdotes are important. Apart from spending time with family and friends, her great pastime is singing.
