I've been doing Context Tours since 2015 and absolutely love the idea. Whenever I go to a new location, I always book at least one Context Tour and they are usually one of the highlights of the trip. I have noticed recently (in the past year or so), that the tour guides tell less of a story. For example, when in 2017 I did the Paris Revolutionary tour, the guide was meticulous in explaining the timeline and significant historical figures. And then there was obviously a huge focus on the French Revolution events themselves. The tour felt like a outdoor lesson rather than a traditional city tour. But all the past tours felt more superficial. They of course pointed out interesting details about the locations and were very knowledgeable/friendly/interesting. But I didn't feel like they had a planned "lesson" of timelines and themes. I can of course as questions to learn more. But sometimes I'm not an expert so probably don't always know what questions to ask. The structured learning on tours was what set Context Tours apart from other private tour companies. And I feel like this has been lost recently.
Tour guide was great, he was a wealth of knowledge. Was just mostly info sharing, I am used to seeing more sites.
Excellent guide we all enjoyed the tour and it made our experience in Stockholm a very positive one
