Our Guides

We believe the single most important thing on your tour is your guide. We are a couple of guides from Scania in Sweden who come together to create Tour Swedish Copenhagen; several of us work as guides with other tours outside the scope of this company as well. We have different interests closes to our hearts, so every tour is different even on the same route.

Petra

Petra is a positive guide who will have you laughing through your tour. She has lived in Malmö all her life and can tell you all about life in Sweden's third largest city. Petra is very interested in architecture and construction on both old and new buildings in Malmö. Modern Malmö lies especially close to her heart.

Petra likes to find entertaining stories and hidden gems about Swedish culture and history. The midsummer party is one of the most important celebrations in Sweden; and a tour with Petra is not complete before she gets to demonstrate the classical dance The Little Frogs.

Stina has been a tour leader around the world for over 30 years. Originally, she did tours to faraway places like China and India, and then around Europe. Now she is finally exploring her home environment and wants to share the beauty of the Greater Copenhagen region with you.  Stina has a great interest in history and culture but is also a keen hiker who can show you all the best trails and hidden paths in Scania.

Christian is a major history buff. He knows dates, kings and battles where Sweden defeated Denmark, but will only mention it during the tour if it's relevant to give the Danes a friendly jab. Especially Malmö lies close to heart for Christian. He came up with the idea for Tour Swedish Copenhagen and ran the first tours back in 2017.

Favourite fun fact: Tycho Brahe, an important astronomer from Scania, is said to have lost his nose in a fencing duel because someone dared claim to be better at math than Tycho. You just don't see that kind of passion in science these days.

Ingvar is not a guide, but helps out with many of the things that happen in the background for a tour to function. He was part of the effort to start Tour Swedish Copenhagen. Ingvar also has a passion for food, and will gladly tell you where to find the best meatballs or what the deal is with eating herring.
