Good day trip away from Copenhagen and into the north historic castle areas,, so pupular we had to change from a regular size bus to a larger double decker. Good guide to amazing locales,
We booked our day trip to the Kronborg Castle using Viator.com. On the day of excursion, we brought our vouchers and followed the instructions /map to the bus meeting point. We were there at 10am (bus was supposed to leave at 10:30am), we waited for twenty minutes and saw no signs of bus so we got worried. We asked the agent of a Hop On and Hop Off bus to discover that Viator.com had been providing bad instructions (apparently it happened to other tourists the day before) and the actual meeting point was 10 minutes away. The agent made few calls to the tour company and finally reached the bus driver...who was nice enough to detour the bus to come pick us up so we won't miss the tour. So on that note, I am not sure if I can trust Viator.com.
The excursion itself was nice. We first visited the Kronborg castle with a guided tour. Then we passed by the Fredensborg Palace (stopped for 15 minutes), and spent more time at the Frederiksborg Castle. We didn't have the time to visit the garden at the Frederiksborg Castle, that was a bummer. Overall, it was a pleasant day trip.
The bus was a double decker and can accommodate 50+ people. We only had 10 on our bus, which made our tour extremely relaxing and flexible. I cannot imagine if the bus were full...
We travel around the world and often take organized day trips like this one. This tour covers the important places on the route. However, it was poorly planned and organized. The driver and the tour guide is the same person - one man show. Not sure if tour guides require license in CPH, But the person we had did not give much of the explanations. He tried hard to accomodate the people on the tour, but being the driver and the tour guide without other help, he was struggling to get the tour going. I would not recommend this tour unless they assign a separate tour guide besides the driver.
