This exclusive tour is made for small groups and can be tailored after your requirements:
The first day is for the guests to have a platform that gives them the frames of reference for the next day’s experiences. We will visit some of the most interesting art galleries and art institutions in Stockholm. The next day they will also be given the opportunity to purchase art if desired so therefore this is a good start to a preparatory dialogue with the art advisor / guide. On this day, we can go into more details on the different taste and liking. Based on that I might correct the second day’s gallery round.
The second day is more flexible and depend on external factors; which exhibits going on, what art is most interesting for the customer, etc.
This tour is created for a group of maximum 6 people but it can be modified depending on the number and desires of the group. It can be shorter; maybe there is no more than one day or even just a couple of hours to spend.
In the first place, it is my guests who decide, then according to their needs and requirements I tailor the tour!
