Absolutely fabulous tour!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2015

Our one day trip was wonderful. Our drive was comfortable and we saw a section of Denmark that was quite beautiful. Hamlet's castle was impressive. The climb to the fourth level was exhausting, yet interesting..
Over all we saw so many sights and the views across the straight to Sweden were beautiful.
My husband, who travels by electric scooter, was only able to see the outside of Hamlet's Castle. The third castle was handicap accessible and quite grand.
Well worth the cost for a great tour of the countryside and I took lots of photos. Spring was chilly but the flowers were abundant and colorful.
