All the best and happy travels,
We were a party of two in a small 16 passenger tour bus driven by Margaret, a 22 year old archeology student. She was a new guide, but did a fantastic job telling us about Danish history. After being picked up at our hotel, we proceeded to Roshilde Cathedral. We got a detailed tour before heading to the Viking museum. Here we were on our own to learn about the Viking ships and culture through various demonstrations and exhibits. A bit of a drive to Kronborg Castle was filled with information on Danish culture and taxes. At the castle, Margaret did a super job telling our group about the history of the castle. We even caught a little bit of Hamlet being acted out. Our last stop was Fredericksburg Castle. Whew! A lot of information, many views of Danish countryside, and a great way to get out of Copenhagen for the day. Highly recommend it.
A terrific way to spend a day away from Copenhagen city. Our guide Robert was so informative with his knowledge of the historical sites we visited. Will certainly recommend Hamlet tours to our friends visiting Denmark. Thank you again.
We just returned from a trip to 5 countries, and while in Denmark decided to take the Grand Day Trip around Copenhagen. Our guide Henrik was very nice, and very knowledgeable. The tour included four main stops: A historic church, the Viking Museum, and two Danish castles.
A few things people should know about the tour that may impact their enjoyment:
#1: Your guide will NOT join you for all of the attractions. This is honestly what prevented me from giving a 5 star review. At both the Viking Museum, and the first Danish castle we went to, our guide basically drove us there, and told us to meet back at the bus in an hour or two. We were told Danish law prevented him from speaking with us more than a certain number of hours during the day. Regardless of whether or not this is true, if you are looking for a truly "guided" tour the entire day you will be disappointed.
#2: In spite of #1, Henrik was well versed, pleasant, and provided good insight for me and my children. He was good enough that I wished we could have had more of him!
#3: The tour (as advertised) does involve a lot of walking. Those people that do not like to walk long distances should consider a different, more "bus oriented" tour. That being said, the walking is spread out over a long period of time, so at no point were we drenched in sweat or begging for mercy.
#4: These attractions are separated by 30-45 minutes driving, so you will be in a small coach for a good 2.5-3.5 hours during the day.
Overall it was very nice, and our trip to Denmark would not have been the same without it. A big thanks to Henrik for his patience with our group.
This is all I have to say!
One day visit 4 places at Copenhagen is not easy, but we did it!
Peter show us around with passion!
Peter also love the food!
So, Yes, ask him a suggestion of food!
You will have your surprise!
By the way, you can also book a private tour here for your family! We have one 1.5 year old kid with us! With private car arrangement, we don’t worry to disturber other people! Peter also like kid!
I don’t know why this is not long enough for TripAdvisor, so I’m sorry I just copy and paste below!
A lovely day trip with a small group of 12 people and a guide. The guide was very friendly and gave interesting information about the four beautiful locations. The locations were very different, making it a fun day around Copenhagen.
