Östermalmstorg , Östermalmstorg, Stockholm, Sweden

You will meet your guide at the main entrance of Östermalms Saluhall (the entrance facing Nybrogatan). Address: Östermalm torg 11 post code: 114 2 Stockholm

Kindstugatan , Kindstugatan, Stockholm, Sweden

The tour ends at Kindstuegatan 1.

Seek out your guide at Õstermalms Saluhall, the oldest food market in Stockholm, where many businesses have been passed down through multiple family generations. Admire the intricate carvings on the interior wooden walls and eaves, which have been well-preserved for centuries. 

Munch on some modern Swedish meatballs, slightly changed and much healthier than their traditional counterpart, but just as tasty. Then continue your tour with a stroll through Stureplan, an area that most tourists skip. At Kungsgatan, check out K25, an urban food court packed with Stockholm's hip young residents. Try some of the local seafood and sip a glass of white wine while you do some interesting people-watching. 

Take the chill off with a visit to Chokoladfabriken for their legendary hot chocolate, made with 65% cocoa and cardamom. Then pause at Hõtorgshallen to peruse the market stalls filled with Swedish delicacies and fresh produce. At the P&B Delikatesser, taste a dizzying array of homemade products like truffles, traditional Swedish licorice and cloudberry jam.

Hit up Husmans Deli for some artisan cheese, then visit Fagel & Vilt for cured meats like smoked reindeer and elk salami. Wash it down with some Norrlands Guld beer and chase it with some fresh fruit from Lisbeth Janson Frukt & Grunt. 

Walk the cobblestone streets of Gamla Stan, Stockholm's Old Town, and pause at a candy store before heading to your last tasting: a traditional Swedish fika. The nation's favorite mid-afternoon or evening break consists of a kanelbullar and a strong coffee. 

With a full stomach and lots of ideas about where you'll want to eat on the rest of your Swedish holiday, you'll bid farewell to your guide after this 4-hour tour.

Covered good areas
, Jun 2022
The tour guide was very friendly, but there's not much context around what we are eating. With all the food tours I've taken, this is the only one I had to get food after.
Such a great experience!...
, Jun 2022
Such a great experience! We learned so much about Swedish culture and history while trying a variety of Swedish foods. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable about the food we were trying and the history of the areas we walked through. While it was rainy and our group was a bit large for the small spaces we were visiting, she made it work and I think we all had a good time. We ended the day with fika in a cute cafe lit by candle light where we got to get to know each other a little better.
Not worth the money
, Jun 2022
Very average tour, there was more walking than food, and when we were actually having food, there was very little context to what we were eating. Tour guide was late, not engaging, and could have made an effort to make the tour more interesting.
Excellent experience

One of the best tours I’ve had. Very professional and knowledgeable guide and the food was crazy good too. Highly recommended.
Wonderful tour!!

Our guide Elena was excellent! She was so friendly and informative! She was a pleasure to spend the morning with. The food was wonderful. We tried several things such as fish stew, shrimp toast, fried herring, licorice, fika, reindeer, moose, chocolates and more! The very best part was being with a local person who loves her city and sharing it with others. She answered questions and allowed time for photos. Such a fun day!!
Perfect food tour!
, Nov 2021
We had a great time on our tour. Our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. We tried lots of different kinds of food, things I would not have known about otherwise. If you only do one tour in Stockholm, pick this one for sure!!
Highly recommended- great way to see Stockholm

Our guide Theresa was fantastic - she was very knowledgeable and made us feel at ease very quickly. There was a great selection of local food at different locations and good pace of walking across the city. Highlight was the herrings and the cardamom truffle. Not so keen on the smoked liquorice but at least I can say I tried it. Highly recommended
Fun, tasty tour!
, Jul 2021
The tour guide was great, very friendly and gave some interesting information about the city. The food itself was tasty - particularly the seafood - but there wasn’t much of it. This isn’t really a meal replacement. It’s also a bit heavily focused on the sweets and less so savory, which isn’t ideal for me but some people may like this best. Overall, a very good experience and one I’d recommend.
, Jun 2021
Very nice Tour Guide but VERY VERY VERRY OVERPRICED. Not worth 200+ dollars. The tour guide could not even pronounce landmarks or certain foods. Thank god my Swedish boyfriend was there to help out translate some things. They should have more food options especially for ppl who may want to try new foods. Lastly, Should charge maybe 30-50$ per person if so. Tack.

Fun way to spend an afternoon in Stockholm!
, Dec 2020
Really interesting walk around central Stockholm trying typical foods. I was a bit disappointed that although I had clearly written in the instructions that my friend doesn’t eat meat or shellfish, there was no real alternative options prepared for her in advance. We loved the fish soup and the prawns with dill. Overall a bit expensive for what it was but a fun experience.
Very interesting experience
, Nov 2020
Interesting walk and experience of Swedish food and culture. Only disappointment was that although I had specified at length that my friend who was with me doesn’t eat meat, the first and second stops hadn’t really been adapted for her. But the rest of the tour catered for her well. The fish soup we had was the best meal we had on our entire 4 day trip to Stockholm.
Not Nordic Enough
, Feb 2020
I have to say from the start that our guide Soma was brilliant and this review is no reflection on her. However whoever designed the tour needs to think again about the meaning of Nordic. No meatballs no reindeer instead three sugar stops and one amazing fish stop. I have been on approx six four tours to date all over the world and this is the first one where I needed to go and have something to eat afterwards.

Delicious food + excellent info about Sweden's past and present = fantastic tour. Only word of caution would be for one of the licorice samples, pure evil hidden in licorice form

We had a fabulous time walking around Stockholm. Our guide, Teresa, was super knowledgeable about the history of the city and of the foods that are available. We did not need dinner after the tour. A great way to get an introduction to the Stockholm food scene.

Figuring out where to meet up was a little confusing, but the food and tour guide were both excellent. A little pricey, yes, but so is everything in Stockholm.
