This tour is in a comfortable air-conditioned bus. We had ample time in Kronborg and Frederiksborg. The drive to Kronborg through the countryside is beautiful. We highly recommend this trip. Several reviewers had a difficult time finding the bus. The following may help: the bus probably will not be a Viator bus, and nor will the Guide be a viator guide. Our bus was the tour operator's bus. The bus meets next to City Hall, but not on the Hans Christian Andersen streetside. There is a bench across the street to wait for the bus, right next to a gold and white sign concerning the bicycle park. It is just down the street from the Palace Hotel.
A wonderful tour, rated at 5 stars due to the outstanding job done by the "guide" David. Although he said he wasn't a guide per se, he led us through many rooms of the castles we visited, and explained everything about those rooms, including the many paintings and tapestries that populated each room. He said he is a history lover, has a degree in history, and enjoys talking about historical sites. If all of your guides are as friendly and knowledgeable, the 5 star rating is genuinely earned.
Very informative tour! David , the tour guide was very knowledgeable and helpful !
Great day of castle touring. Enjoyed the comfortable ride with AC and free Wifi. Highly recommended!
Fantastic day trip! Great opportunity to see the beautiful countryside and learn a bit about Denmark. Castles were very nice, tour guide was very knowledgeable and driver safe and hilarious with his inputs! The lunch was delicious, I had the roast beef and it is the best roast beef sandwich I have ever had! Leaves at a decent time in the morning and arrives back early evening leaving time to explore the city.
The tour was outstanding and met our expectations. The guide was most friendly and informative. A terrific way to see these historical sites and a nice break from the busy city of Copenhagen.
We enjoyed the tour very much. Our guide was very knowledgeable. He made the Castle tours interesting and enjoyable. The lunch was delicious.
This trip truly lived up to my expectations. Our tour guide was great. The bus was comfortable. The sandwiches we ordered for lunch while on board the bus were delicious... I recommend the roast beef! Not too much walking from parking areas and enough time at each castle to really enjoy. The only downside for us was the meeting place was not marked well. Meeting at the City Hall is a big place. We got to the square early and walked around hoping to see a sign or a person with Viator logo. Finally found someone who told us sometimes buses are on the side. Running over we barely caught the bus before it left. All in all....it was a great time....life time memories!
A great way to learn the history of Denmark, the castles were beautiful
We had a great time on our tour. We loved seeing the castles. The driver and other guide were personable and helpful. We loved the narration in the headphones along the way. I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Copenhagen.
Trip was great! Guide very informative and he and driver had great sense of humor. Quite a scenic drive and nice break from hustle and bustle of Copenhagen. Lunch was sandwich and water purchased on bus. Was actually quite tasty. Only suggestion is be more specific about the pick up point. We had to go back after 10-15 minutes into the trip to pick up 5 people who were at the wrong spot and missed the bus. City Hall Square across from Palace Hotel and one block up at the bus stop sign. Not the Han Christian Anderson side.
I would thoroughly recommend this tour. Our guide was very friendly and extremely knowledgeable on the history of the castles we visited; she provided excellent guided tours - in English - at each castle, and could answer all the questions asked of her. The tour bus was comfortable and spacious, and there was an audio commentary en route that provided an interesting and informative narrative of our surroundings on the journey. Whenever I return to Copenhagen, I would probably go again!
