This was a very informative tour. Arrive early at the departure point so you can get the better seats on the upper deck of the bus.
This covered many of the high points, including the changing of the guard. We were able to park in very good locations for the palace and the mermaid. The guide, although he knew his stuff, had done this too often. He brushed aside questions after inviting them or answered with a sarcastic wisecrack. I would have liked a tour like this with the inclusion of a visit to the crown jewels.
We had an excellent guide with a sense of humour.
This was an excellent tour to get a taste of Copenhagen in a short time. The guide was very passionate and knowledgeable about his city, and he communicated well.
Very interesting and bus is very comfortable, so definitely must see.
Our guide was very knowledgeable, and the bus was very comfortable. The guide did a good job of pointing out the important sites. However, I believe he could have focused more on the historical significance of the events and attractions.
The guide was excellent. The tour was better than the hop-on, hop-off.
We purchased Tivoli with this tour and had to walk 20 minutes to the park. They should have dropped us off at the end of the tour like the Canal Cruise people.
Tour was fine and did include the Tivoli Gardens but cruise ship clients beware. The start is a long way from the dock and 90 min at least should be allowed if walking. ( 2 hours if sightseeing on the way) There appears to be a bus but not sure of times.
The commentary was lackluster with many episodes of silence that could have been used to give more information. Lengthening the tour to two or 2 1/2 hours instead of 1 1/2 would have helped. However, the driver was very courteous and helpful.
It wasn't the tour guide or driver's fault but the disruption caused by the extension to the rail service meant that many roads were closed and detours meant we had less time at each place. Many of Copenhagen's buildings were also being renovated or maintained which meant we didn't see them at their best. We got to the changing of the guard too late to get a good spot for photos. The English Church and Little Mermaid were highlights - maybe because the sun peeped out of what had been a rather grey wet day. A good itinerary at another time of year!
We stayed at the Palace Hotel. The room was very nice, the food in the restaurant was very nice. The Service was excellent. But.... there is major roadworks going on right at the front door, and when we arrived (in the rain by taxi), we had to be dropped off down the road and then drag all our luggage to the Hotel entrance. My 86 year old father (my travelling companion), has difficulty walking long distances,and to be dragging a heavy suitcase was not what we expected to have to do on our arrival. Also, I am a light sleeper, and the town clock chimed every hour (it is located just across the road from the Palace Hotel). On top of that, our room must have been in very close proximity to the dining room, as I could hear what sounded like people walking about, moving furniture, and the jingle of cutlery, while I was trying to get to sleep. We did the Grand Tour of Copenhagen on day one of our stay. I rate it 7/10. The castles tour on day 2 was quite good, but my father had to sit out of a couple of the walks due to no wheelchair availability. We did however get wheelchair hire at Tivoli Gardens, which was very nice. So all in all, I rate my stay in Copenhagen 6/10.
Not bad, the tour guide wasnt that enthusiastic. poor weather on the day, lucky it was a bus trip
We almost missed the tour because of their wrong instructions. We were standing at the exact corner that our voucher told us to, but thats not were you need to meet. Because of construction theywere about half a block down right next to a Mc Donalds. We finally realized that but were pretty upset that they didnt even bother to come by and check the corner that they specifically told us to meet at. Other than that the tour was okay. Sites seem to be pretty spread out across the town, so this was a pretty effective way to view the city. Also wished that the guide would have been a little more specific with the history and details of the city.
Not really fantastic, tour guide wasn't really knowledgable in the history of the city and we didn't really get off the bus to see anything of significance apart from the outside of buildings.
Tour left 25 minutes late and without a tour guide. A man with the tour company offered to fill in but stated he was not a tour guide but would do his best. Refunds were offered but when one plans a day by day itinerary, switches are not always possible.
This is an enjoyable tour and is good for providing a snap shot of Copenhagen's major sites. However, the route past the little mermaid was closed due to a charity walk. A little disappointing, but not a major problem. However it it would have been better if we had been told prior to tour, rather than at the end of it (and only when asked by another traveller when we were going to see this attraction). Driver and guide were very nice and helpful.
clean, modern hotel. Noisy rooms on the street side. Small but adequate rooms if you are not oversized. Long wait for desk services (30 minutes). Key cards had to be reissued to 2 of us during a 3 night stay. Very comfortable beds, close to everything!
This is a good overview of Copenhagen. Our guide was well informed and explains well. We visited the major sights like the Amalienborg during the changing of the guards, the Little Mermaid, the Gefion Fountain and Nyhavn.
Worth doing to get a feel of the city but little background from an old guide who needed a lot of prodding.
