Great day with visits to multiple castles. Great to see Shakespeare's Elsinore! Time for a bit of shopping and ice cream. Lunch needs improving!

A nice day in the Danish countryside. Very green landscapes, with nice towns. The castles were nice, the unquestioned favorite being the last one, Frederiksborg is an absolute gem! The lunch stop at Elsinore was so-so, but you had a couple of other choices, I suppose. The guide and driver were good.

The visits of the castles were excellent and informative but the 'see the town of Elsinore, made famous in Shakespeare's Hamlet' was litrally a drive through the town so what you can manage to see outside of a bus window is all you're going to be able to experience of what looked like a nice quaint place. The bus driver who also doubled as a tour guide did not manage the multi-tasking of driving and talking. It was frustrating to follow. I definitely recomment people to visit these castles by their own means and spend the time you want looking around the castles without being rushed.
