What You Can Expect
In Elsinore, stop for a walk around the outside of Kronborg Castle -- a UNESCO World Heritage Site – and hear about its formidable history from your guide. Once a tollhouse that was designed to terrify outsiders, the castle now has a romantic appeal, having been the setting for Shakespeare’s Hamlet.
Stroll around Kronborg Castle’s swan-filled moats, and head into Elsinore itself to admire its historical half-timbered houses and streets on a walking tour with your guide. Take a break for lunch (own expense) and then meet your guide to continue your tour by coach to Fredensborg Castle – the summer residence of the Danish royal family. Stop for photos in front of the castle with Lake Esrum as your backdrop, and then hop back on board your coach.
Nearby is the small market town of Hillerød, and you'll visit it next to see magnificent Frederiksborg Castle. The building gives the town an undeniable wow factor, with many a visitor referring to it as the ‘Nordic Versailles.’ Explore the castle’s different gardens – one designed in French Baroque style and another in the form of a quintessential English garden – while learning about the castle’s history from your guide.
Head back to Copenhagen in the late afternoon, finishing your tour at the start point.
It was a wonderful day! I took great photos and met great people. I would highly recommend it.
The trip itself was wonderful, we had an excellent and very informative guide and very comforatble transport. My only quibble was catching the bus, the voucher advises that buses leave from next to the City Hall but doesnt advise which side, to the right of the City Hall is a bus area so we naturally assumed that was the place to be but it was actually the other side, there are no signs to advise you! luckily somebody walked across to check before they left or we would have missed the trip.
I cannot fault the trip and would highly reccomend it to anybody but i would advise you to be aware that the bus may not be where you think it is and also that Viator look at having some signs made up so that people are able to identify where to board :)
overall very enjoyable!!
