A Gastronomic Getaway to the City of Islands,
Venice of the Nordic, and the Capital of Sweden

If you happen to be in Stockholm for just a short time, the best way to get a feel for Sweden’s capital city is to view its culture through several guided walking tours designed to satisfy your passion for history while satiating your palate. You accommodations are perfectly positioned along the waterfront near old town, in a district called Östermalms. Your first excursion is an introduction to the culture, while providing an opportunity to take note of many dining options you may wish to visit in the evenings. And any Foodie worth their salt can’t miss the famous Market Halls, with the most famous being Östermalms Saluhall. You will complete your introduction to Stockholm enjoying a very traditional Fika in a somewhat untraditional way. Should you have more time available in this magical city of the north, you may wish to add an optional cooking class and take home some new recipes for friends and family back home.

The location of the hotel is ideally positioned to allow you easy access to shopping, restaurants, bars and nightlife should you care to explore. Your evening is free to design as you wish. Welcome to Stockholm!
Day 2
Scandinavian Breakfast Buffet Offering excellent food and drink, not to mention stunning harbor views, the hotel's timeless brasserie is as popular with the Stockholm locals as it is with visiting guests. Enjoy a healthy breakfast buffet based on classic Scandinavian cooking, with a mix of contemporary ingredients and inspiration from the Mediterranean area and urban influences from around the globe. Enjoy a smoothie, eggs prepared in a variety of ways, freshly baked pastries, fruits and berries of the season, fresh squeezed juices and delicious coffee…the perfect ingredients to start your day of exploration.
Welcome to Stockholm Cultural & Culinary Tour with Lunch Set off through historic city streets and alleys, using food as your medium of exploration. You will be guided back through history, visiting restaurants, specialty shops, farmers markets and bars as you navigate the Stockholm's old town. You will enjoy tastings of Swedish specialties along the way, such as gourmet chocolates, seafood, breads, cheeses, salty licorice and the famous Swedish meatballs. You'll leave this tour with full bellies and an introductory knowledge of the history and culinary heritage of this beautiful Scandinavian city.

Östermalms Saluhall Market and Fika Tour Sweden enjoys a highly developed culture when it comes to baked goods, and everywhere in Stockholm, you'll find cafés and cake shops brimming with atmosphere, character, and quality and this tour takes you to explore some of the best this city has to offer. Going for a fika at a "fik" is by far one of the most Swedish things one can ever do. Fika basically means to meet up for a coffee and a piece of cake or pastry, and a fik is slang for a café, bakery or pastry shop.

Hotel Diplomat Stockholm
The hotel's 130 rooms and suites are bright and distinctly Scandinavian. All rooms have Dux beds and free access to the internet and video-on-demand. Many rooms have balconies with splendid views over the harbor. Hotel Diplomat is located near the Royal Castle and Old Town, and ferries to the archipelago depart from the quay outside the hotel. The building's classic 'Art Nouveau' style has been preserved and is today combined with sophisticated deco and clear, Scandinavian design. The house, originally built as a residence palace, was converted into a luxury hotel in 1966, and therefore, all rooms at Hotel Diplomat are individual and unique.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What Currency is being quoted?
The Currency Code is listed directly after the published amount. If it states USD, then the quoted price is in United States Dollars. If it states CAD, then the quoted price is in Canadian Dollars. If it states EUR, then the quoted price is in European Union Dollars…etc. However, please note that all charges are processed in USD, and Epitourean’s Merchant Bank automatically calculates the currency conversion on the day of the charge.
What does Double Occupancy mean?
Two persons traveling together, and staying in the same room. Tour prices are normally quoted as “per person, double occupancy” in case two people are traveling together and staying in the same room, but paying separately. The cost of the lodging is also shared by two people, thereby reducing costs. This could be a married couple, two friends or relatives.
What is a Single Supplement?
Whenever a person travels alone, the cost of their lodging cannot be shared by another person. When tour products are priced, they are normally stated as “per person, double occupancy.” Whenever a guest occupies a room as a solo, the whole cost of the lodging must be incurred by that one individual. Tour companies accommodate this by charging a Single Supplement. Epitourean does its best to keep the single supplement as low as possible, but it is a real cost that tour companies must absorb, and must pass along to the single traveler.
If I am a Solo Traveler, will I be paired with another person?
Epitourean never pairs a solo traveler with another person without a special request. If you book Single Occupancy, you will have a room entirely to yourself. However, should you wish to be paired with another solo traveler to save on the single supplement, you may make this request. We cannot guarantee that we can accommodate such requests, since it would take another solo traveling on the same tour for the same dates. But if requested, we will certainly try.
Is a Deposit required to book a tour or getaway?
Yes. We require a 30% refundable deposit for all our domestic (USA and Canada) getaways and tours, and a 50% refundable deposit for international destinations outside of the USA and Canada. Reservations made for destinations within the USA and Canada must be paid in full 30 days prior to departure. Reservations made for destinations outside of the USA and Canada must be paid in full 60 days prior to departure.
Are flights included in the tour price?
No. Flights are never included in the price of our land-only tours. Epitourean does not provide air, rail or sea travel, unless expressly noted in the itinerary.
May I give a culinary tour as a gift?
Yes. Epitourean has a special program designed specifically for this purpose. Our Gift Packages come with features such as special messages to the recipient, gift box option, gift link (without pricing), and floating dates (should you not know when the gift recipient wants to travel). Contact a Culinary Travel Specialist at 800-390-3292 or customerservice@epitourean.com to receive additional information about this unique offering.
May we request separate beds if sharing a room?
Yes. In most cases, Epitourean can accommodate a request for two beds to be placed in one room. Just make sure to make this request in the comments section of the reservation process.
Does each guestroom have a private bathroom?
Yes. Epitourean partners with the best lodging options in each destination, and private (en suite) bathrooms are a requirement. However, you should inquire as to the configuration of bathrooms should you have a special need. For example, some tours include accommodations in medieval villages, where either a shower or bath(but maybe not both) are present.
Can your tours accommodate my dietary restrictions?
In almost all cases, Epitourean can accommodate dietary choices and restrictions. But we do request that you ask a Culinary Travel Specialist prior to making your reservation so that we can assess your individual situation.
What is your Cancellation Policy?
Generally, you may cancel any tour or getaway package within 30 days of making a reservation, and receive a full refund of any deposit or payments made, as long as the cancellation is made at least 31 days in advance of departure for domestic tours or 61 days in advance of departure for international tours. Cancellations made after 30 days incur a 10% cancellation fee (10% of the deposit amount paid, not the full price of the tour package). Cancellations made 30 days or less in advance of departure for domestic packages (60 days or less for international packages) cannot be refunded due to loss of inventory.
If I am unable to use a portion of the tour, can I get a partial refund?
Unfortunately, due to vendor and supplier contracts, we are unable to provide partial refunds for unused portions of any tour or tour component.
Are Transfers included in the Itinerary?
Round-trip transfers from the airport or train station are normally included in our international tours. Transfers to the destination (for both international and domestic tours) are not included in the tour price. Please see the Sample Itinerary. If it mentions that transfers are included, then yes, transfers are included at no additional cost.
What meals and excursions are included in the tour?
The Sample Itinerary should be your reference. If the meal or excursion is described in the Sample Itinerary, then it is included at no additional charge. For those days where it expressly notes Free time, then any optional activities you elect to participate in might have an additional cost. In addition, if the itinerary states "evening on your own," it would imply that you have the opportunity to visit a restaurant of your own choosing, and at your own expense. If you have any question about inclusions, please submit an inquiry by clicking on the blue "Ask Us a Question" button under the price section.
Is it possible to book pre or post tours or stays through Edible Destinations?
Yes, we often do have optional 2 and 3 night excursions that are priced separately from the tour. We can also assist with pre and post night stays in a hotel if you choose to come in early before the tour starts, or stay on after a tour ends. The price of those hotel stays are not included in the price of the tour, but we would be happy to provide a quote. Simply ask your Culinary Travel Specialist, or submit an inquiry by clicking on the blue "Ask Us a Question" button.
Are Guide or Host Gratuities included in the price of the tour?
Since tipping guidelines and customs vary widely between countries, we do not include gratuities in the price of the tour. Your Culinary Travel Specialist can provide you with recommendations. But the general rule is to tip modestly when you are pleased with a guide’s services, either at the end of the tour, or at the conclusion of a specialty day excursion where you will only be with that guide (or chef) on that day.
Should we plan on any personal expenses during the tour?
All lodging, meals, transfers, classes and excursions mentioned in the Sample Itinerary and Vacation Highlights are included in the price of the tour. However, we highly recommend taking local currency for purchasing personal items, souvenirs, tipping, etc. You can either get the local currency at an airport exchange service, ATM or from your local bank prior to travel. However, you should note that many hosted destinations do not accept credit cards for personal purchases.
Do you recommend Travel Protection?
We recommend that you purchase a travel protection plan to help protect you and your travel investment against the unexpected. Travel protection plans can include coverage for Trip Cancellation, Trip Interruption, Emergency Medical and Emergency Evacuation/Repatriation, Trip Delay, Baggage Delay and more.
