Took this tour in June. Enjoyed all the castles.
Great day of castle touring. Enjoyed the comfortable ride with AC and free Wifi. Highly recommended!
Very nice tour. It was interesting to see the countryside and the castles. Guide was very nice. Bus was comfortable.
Very informative tour! David , the tour guide was very knowledgeable and helpful !
This tour is in a comfortable air-conditioned bus. We had ample time in Kronborg and Frederiksborg. The drive to Kronborg through the countryside is beautiful. We highly recommend this trip. Several reviewers had a difficult time finding the bus. The following may help: the bus probably will not be a Viator bus, and nor will the Guide be a viator guide. Our bus was the tour operator's bus. The bus meets next to City Hall, but not on the Hans Christian Andersen streetside. There is a bench across the street to wait for the bus, right next to a gold and white sign concerning the bicycle park. It is just down the street from the Palace Hotel.
A wonderful tour, rated at 5 stars due to the outstanding job done by the "guide" David. Although he said he wasn't a guide per se, he led us through many rooms of the castles we visited, and explained everything about those rooms, including the many paintings and tapestries that populated each room. He said he is a history lover, has a degree in history, and enjoys talking about historical sites. If all of your guides are as friendly and knowledgeable, the 5 star rating is genuinely earned.
Will do it again!
Well organized and knowledgeable guides. great way to get a quick introduction and visits to the castles outside Copenhagen.
Nice tour of North Copenhagen and the castles. Comfortable bus and nice/knowledgable guide. Lucked out on the weather with blue skies, which enhanced the beautiful Danish countryside. The castles are beautiful on the exterior, but a bit sparse inside. I may be spoiled though after seeing the castles in Italy. Yummy lunch but it would be nice to have it included after what we paid for the tour. Pick up/ drop off point is obscure, down the left side of City Hall Square, and the should post someone in the square with a sign to direct people to the bus. Since we toured in June, the days are long. This means even after your 6 hour tour, you can catch a nap on the bus back (bring a travel pillow on the bus) and still have 5 hours of light to explore Copenhagen. Just drink enough coffee! Overall worth the money to see these intersting sites!
Wonderful day of touring castles. Guide very knowledgable and friendly. Wish we had mkre time to explore the villages. And take the same route back for those sitting on the opposite side of the bus missed taking coastal pictures.
Great tour for those looking for a leisurely day.
We really liked this tour. The castles are very beautiful. We were inside Kronborg Castle and inside Frederiksborg Castle, and we saw the Fredensborg Palace from outside. The tour guide was knowledgeable and nice. We recommend this tour.
This is a good tour.
Wish the bus stop signage is more obvious to help us find it.
Think of it more as a comfortable ride to the castles. Once you got there you were more or less on your own. The live "tour guide" did not really give a tour with history as I expected. The bus was comfortable and nice for sightseeing. There was a recording you listened to in the way that gave a bit of interesting details along the way. The last castle is the best. Thanks to other reviewers for telling about where to meet the bus. We would have been confused otherwise.
While the day was successful overall, the website did not clearly explain that there were two tours taking place on the same bus. Thus, while we elected to visit one castle we followed the same itinerary as the three castle group, spending almost a third of the total time sitting outside a castle we had no interest in visiting.
Some specific points:
- both driver and guide were excellent
- ordering lunch to be eaten on bus was an excellent time saver
- visibility from the bus was limited
- very poor air conditioning on the bus; this detracted considerably from our enjoyment
