This tour was fantastic! I'd do it again in a heartbeat. A great way to get the history of Copenhagen, AWESOME guide and amazing lunch!
Driver Salem was excellent. Regular guide didn't show up so he had to fill in. Very difficult to locate bus. You didn't say it was a certain bus.
The venues are really good. You forgot to stress there is a huge amount of walking!
Took this tour on September 12, 2014. I was staying with my wife at the Tivoli Hotel and asked how to get to the pickup spot for this tour. The hotel said the the Stroma Bus will pick you up at the hotel. I was shocked and excited at the same time. Loved being picked up at the hote. This was a 2 decker bus with WiFi, another plus. The bus then left for the pickup of the other passangers. The tours of the Fredericksburg Castle, and Hamlet Castles were fabulous. We also went to the Queens castle a d saw the changing of the guards. What a surprise. We had plenty of time to take pictures and see the beauty of the various castles. When it became time for lunch our tour guide had menus on the bus where by we could purchase sandwiches and she had them ready at the next stop. Very convenice to pay with a credit card and also get a receipt. Ordered the roart beef sandwich, based upon other reviewears comments and was very please.
We highly recommend this tour, please note it is an all day tour and you arrive back about 4:30 to 5 pm. Enjoy to all.
Nice ride along the coast line.
This trip was alot of fun, great people good timing. I do wish we had more time to explore the garden at the last castle. Otherwise it was great. Bus driver gave really good recommendations.
Excellent tour. Good guides and castle and position very interesting. Would have liked a little more time in the castle though, but can't have everything I suppose. A.Watson, Sydney
It was a great trip with a wonderful tour guide. We saw and learned a lot. Thank you!
The tour was brilliant. David was a brilliant tour guide. Highly recommended.
This tour was wonderful. It was a last minute choice because of the weather and it was a great decision.
Fantastic tour! The bus was VERY comfortable. Our guide and our driver were both delightful and informative. The countryside and castles were breath taking. I definitely would suggest doing this tour even if you are in Copenhagen for a short time.
We really enjoyed this tour before our Baltic Cruise. Several people have said in their reviews they had a difficult time figuring out where to meet the bus. We were worried about that - our bus (a red double decker) parked across from Jerry's Bar - on the side of the City Hall that is opposite Tivoli.
Our tour guide was really good - the bus handed out earbuds and you could listen to the presentation in your choice of languages. Loved the castles - and had the roast beef sandwich for lunch (an extra cost - but you order soon after boarding the bus - it was better than I expected) - the bus had free Wi-Fi, which is always helpful when traveling internationally.
Excellent trip. Small group was great with a very knowledgeable and friendly guide. I would definitely recommend this to others.
Pick up point close to hotel. Had a great time.
Loved the freedom on this tour. They took us to castles, let us in, and left us to explore on our own. We loved going under ground at hamlet's castle and spent most of our time in the gardens at the second castle. The commentary was even interesting on the bus. We liked the sandwiches too. All and all a great trip.
Luckily one prior traveler posted how to find the bus (NOT on the side of the Hans Christian Anderson statue) so we knew where to go (sort of). The tour leader and the bus driver were both very, very nice and totally helpful. The tour itself was very interesting and the castles and the grounds were beautiful. I wouldn't have seen the things that were on this tour if I hadn't taken it so I'm very glad we did! I wish Viator offered more trips like this one. They do offer other trips but different ones that I am not interested in doing.
Highly recommend this tour, great way to see both castles. Make sure you book the tour including entry fees so you can tour inside as well. The tour is on a double decker bus, but luckily it was not full the day I went so not too large a group.
Very good tour guide, like going thought the country side and seeing other than just the Castle. It was amazing to see the castle and the close proximity to Sweden. Liked this tour very much
This was a good trip. In addition to a guided tour of the castle (which was AWESOME) , the drive gave us the opportunity to see the countryside and villages outside of Copenhagen. We had purchased only the "Hamlet's Castle tour", but the bus also stopped at Fredriksburg Castle. We were given an opportunity to add a tour of that castle to our itinerary, but decided not to do so. We were able to walk through the extensive (and gorgeous) gardens without paying the entrance fee and spent the rest of the time browsing in several of the nearby shops. All in all, a good day.
Enjoyed the freedom of this tour. When at the castles we were on our own to go through as quickly or slowly as we wanted. We also drove through beautiful scenic countryside to get to our destinations.
Tour guide and bus driver were great, very knowledgeable and friendly. Tour guide answered tons of questions, gave great tours of the castles and gave tons of info outside of the prerecorded tidbits during the bus portions.
Loved having wifi on the bus too. Was the highlight of my trip.
Excellent guide- super knowledgeable and the tour was well paced. The lunch option was also excellent!! Well done!
We were picked up swiftly from the meeting point and transported to the three castles. En route, the tour guide stated we would not have a meal stop, but they had a sandwich shop that could deliver reasonably priced sandwiches to the bus. The tour guide then took our orders and they turned out to be quite tasty for the money (the sandwiches were not included in the tour price). We toured two castles and a had a photo stop at a third. The guide was great for both of the castle tours and had a lot of facts that were delivered in a very witty way (especially at Hamlet's Castle). The drive time was relaxing and the pace of the tours at the castles good. Would definitely recommend to anybody who wants a nice, relaxing day out of Copenhagen.
Good value. Comfortable bus. Great castles. You cant go wrong.!
This was a very nice tour.
