Dear Joke G,
Thank you very much for taking the time to review our tour. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed the time spent touring these beautiful sights outside of Copenhagen.
Overall we enjoyed the tour. The guide was well informed and gave plenty of facts about the history of Denmark. A few things to pass along:
It is ambitious time-wise. There are 4 sites visited and each gives a glimpse of the area.
The bus was air conditioned, but pretty cramped and you spend about 3 hours total driving time between the different destinations.
Our first visit (cathedral) was excellent. The amount of time and the information by the guide was perfect.
The second site was the Viking museum. It was way too short (40 minutes) with just enough time to walk to the museum, watch a 13 minute video, speed-walk past the boats and back to the bus. I recommend either spending more time here or cancelling this to spend more time at the other locations.
Third was Fredericksburg castle and lunch. Lunch recommendation was excellent - good food and good price. It took up about 45 minutes of our 2 hour window. We then breezed through the castle, not stopping to see anything in depth and didn’t have time to visit the gardens. I recommend skipping the Viking museum and spending more time here.
Finally was the “Hamlet Castle” which was excellent from both a time spent as well as the history from the guide.
This is very much a history lesson and not too geared for children (the kids on this tour were really bored while the adults were engaged). It was a good way to get outside of the city to see some very interesting sites.
Our family enjoyed the trips out of the city to see the castles and cathedral. Peter was a fabulous guide. He was very knowledgeable and had a great personality!
Wow, a terrific day visiting 4 separate Denmark landmarks including 2 UNESCO listed sites.
George was very knowledgeable on all matters & looked after the Aussie’s on the trip!!
Highly recommend as you see need to see more than just Copenhagen.
Thank you so much for taking the time to review your tour. We are very pleased to know that you enjoyed your day and that George took good care of you.
The Grand Day trip takes you to Kronborg Castle, Frederiksborg Palace Roskilde Cathedral and the Viking Ship Musuem. With an early start, we were able to enter Roskilde Cathedral before it opened to the general public. The guide was very knowledgeable. The guide/driver asked if he could have back our tickets to Frederiksborg Palace if the y were not punched when we entered the castle. Seemed a bit fishy. If this had not happened, I would have rated this review Excellent.
Thank you very much for taking the time to review the Grand Day Trip around Copenhagen. We are very happy to hear that you enjoyed your day tour and the beautiful sights. It is certainly not our general practice to ask for tickets back from any of the castles. We always pay for our guests' entrance and take pride in having good working relationships with the attractions that we visit. I can only assume that this is a case of poor communication on the guide's part regarding excess tickets that were handed out or similar. Regardless, I will make sure to address the practice with him to avoid any future misunderstandings.
Once again thank you for taking the time to send your thoughts.
I am in Copenhagen for a short period and this trip let me visit everything I wanted to see outside of Denmark. Hendrick and Peter were our guides for the trip. They were amazing. They answered all of our questions. It was a perfect mix between info and down time.
