Stromma dk basically does all the tours and they are beyond top notch. The bus was amazing and our tour guide and driver....the best.
We also did a canal tour with Stromma dk and Nicolena was such an amazing person and tour guide. I would definitely recommend this tour and all stromma dk tours in Denmark.
Interesting itinerary, good guide. Timing of stops along way good.
A most enjoyable day
Excellent tour and tour guide Mark! It is always nice to have a tour guide that is personable and knowledgable. Hamlet was a wonderful castle. North Zealand breathtaking..talk abut being well off..you know private beaches and all. And Fredricksborg Castle, what a beauty a lot of art work and just splendor and the Danes are proud of this beauty.
Started off with really heavy rain as we boarded the bus so we we quite worried. However it stopped almost at once. The tour guide and driver were friendly, chatty and knowledegable giving us comprehensive info on the sights as we went. The first stop was Kronborg Castle, made famous in Hamlet. here we had ample time to have a guided tour of the castle rooms and some of the amazing views across to Sweden. We also had an opportunity to pre-order lunch from out guide, a choice of awesome sandwiches which would be picked up and passed out later. Then on to Fredensborg Palace, where the Royal Family are still in residence. Not allowed inside but ample time for photographs outside and a break for an icecream or coffee at one of the little shops / cafe's nearby. Finally ending up at Frederiksborg Castle, with picture postcard views and photo opportunities outside and extensive guided tours inside at the beautiful rooms. AT all of the castles and sights along the way, so much to see and a wonderful introduction to so much of the history that Denmark has to offer. I'd certainly recommend this as a must for anyone visiting Copenhagen, a truly marvellous day.
Excellent tour! Guides were great! Well planned and well paced! A very enjoyable day!
We really enjoyed this tour. It included three very interesting castles one from the outside only as well as a nice look at the Danish Riviera towns along the Kattegat and Oresund. The tour was very well planned, organized and executed.
What a fabulous day! Three beautiful and different castles in one day, highlighted by fabulous guide Kristen! It was a busy day, but with eating a delicious lunch on the bus we were able to have enough time to experience three difference castles as well as excellent scenery along the drives. This was narrated by an audio guide as well as a knowledgeable and funny driver whose name I am very sorry I have forgotten. I highly recommend this tour!
My husband and I enjoyed this tour very much. After spending time in the city, it was good to visit the castles and see the countryside. Our driver Per and our guide Simone were excellent.
Saw some amazing castles and lovely countryside that we wouldn't have seen if we stayed in the city! An excellent day!
I enjoyed the tour and the tour guide, Hannah, was knowledgeble and engaging. As was the bus driver. The tour lived up to everything the ad promised. The only suggestion I'd make is that the 2nd castle Summer Palace? was not worth the time since you could only see it from the outside far outside. I would rather have spent more time at the other 2 castles. But overall, very happy - a nice tour.
We packed a lot into this day tour. Travel was by very comfortable coach. The bus stop was easy to find and the onboard staff were very efficient and friendly. We had enough time to see the highlights of each castle with the tour guide. Lunch was ordered on board and was delicious. All in all, a great day out - highly recommended.
One of the best tours we did in Copenhagen. Highly recommend it our driver was terrific and our guide Hanna really excelled in her craft.
This tour was efficiently run, good guide and driver and the countryside and castles were above expectations. A lovely day trip from Copenhagen.
Excellent driver and guide. Great to see something outside of Copenhagen itself.
Lovely to get out and see some Danish countryside. Excellent driver who did a couple of detours to show us a it extra. Very informative and enjoyable day out.
Tour delivered just as promised in the description. A really great tour.
This tour was more than I expected. Right from the moment we departed the meeting point in Copenhagen the commentary began and continued for the whole day. The guide, Mark, and the driver whose name escapes me, were exceptional and did their utmost to ensure the tour was memorable. Not only did we get the tour of the castles, but the bonus was the Copenhagen Riviera, the Danish countryside and the icing on the cake was, of course, the castles. Plenty of time allocated to see and absorb the history, and I was particularly impressed by the luncheon arrangements whereby pre-ordered sandwiches etc were delivered to the bus to be consumed en-route thus saving valuable travelling time.
A very well organised tour and one that I would recommend to a visitor to Copenhagen as a must do.....you won't regret it!
This was a fantastic day trip. A great opportunity to see Denmark outside of Copenhagen. The castles were amazing and our guide was excellent. We had a lot of time at each castle guided and free time to explore on our own. If you have limited time in Denmark, and want to get outside of Copenhagen this is a memorable trip.
This was a great day out not the countryside in addition to visiting 3 castles. Worth the money and the time.
excellent tour and as the audio guide was not working, the tour guide gave us an interesting talk along the Danish Riviera where he pointed out all the places of interest and history of the area.The guide and driver were very helpful and regularly provided us with refreshments where needed. I found the tour good value for money and the stops at each castle were timed well
