This trip is very well organized. It starts on time, the guide is very good and interested in his topic and very informative. The main sights are fantastic. The guide even organizes a lunch to be bought and brought on the bus to save time for sightseeing.
The scenery up to the sights are almost as interesting as the castle and palaces.
A trip well worth taking.
I can't recommend this more highly it is great value for money and means that you aren't worrying about local currency all the time. I found that we used the card to see more places than we otherwise would have as we entered places like the Hans Christian Anderson museum which I probably would not have done if I had to pay individually. The card gives entry to a huge number of places and based on my experience here I would look for similar cards in other cities.

I really enjoyed seeing three castles outside the city. And the tour guide was very knowledgeable and we learned a lot, when we could hear him. The group was a little large for us to crowd around and hear him at times. It would have been better if he had a mic and we had headphones so we weren't fighting to be up close to hear him. Also the tour was very rushed so he would often move to the next room and start talking before everyone was there, and there really wasn't any free time to explore, look at souvenirs, take photos, etc.
Great time - loved our guide and the tour!
Great tour, but not enough time at Hamlet's castle, so it felt a bit rushed at times. The sandwiches that the bus offers were amazing, really!
The tour itself was good. Places were interesting and beautiful scenery. However,
there were 110 people on this tour. Far more than were expected and so we had to wait 1 hour to get a second bus. Since there was only one guide,it was very difficult to hear what he was saying and it took a long time to move this number of people around in the venues. We had told our friends how great viator is and we were totally embarrassed. Though the tour guide and bus driver kept apologizing, it unfortunately didn't fix he issues we were having. Definitely didn't get what we paid for. Major disappointed.
I especially enjoyed the scenic bus rides between castles. The countryside is very picturesque and, even though Copenhagen is beautiful, it provided different glimpse into Danish life. Unfortunately, time doesn't allow for stopping, but there are plenty of photo ops once the bus arrives at its destination.
I also liked that audio guides were provided during the trip, so we had the opportunity to learn about Danish history and culture along the routes between castles.
My favorite part of the tour was a sub tour: The Hamlet tour in Hamlet Castle. The actors were full of energy and gave excellent performances. If you can, definitely try to catch one or at least a part of one.
I would recommend this tour. I only visited Copenhagen for a few days and was worried I was going to waste too much time with this day-long outing. However, getting out of the city was a nice change of pace and we were back before dinner.
Pro tip: Brings snacks/drinks. There are opportunities to buy food/drinks, but the tour is allotted a specific amount of time at each location and must keep moving. You don't want to miss something like the changing of the guards because you were waiting in line for ice cream.
I got the 72 hour city card and was the best thing I had for my 3 days in Copenhagen. I was able to go around not worrying about transit and made use of free entrance to a number of attractions including the round tower, aquarium to name a few. Highly recommended.

This tour was wonderful! Our guide was very affable and knowledgeable. A great storyteller he kept us entertained even when on the road. The optional lunch was delicious! All the castles were lovely and interesting the travelling was a good pace. My only regret was not having more time at Fredricksborg Castle. Our guide had so many good stories and good information we didn't get around to seeing the whole castle. Took advantage of the discount ticket to Tivoli afterwards!
I really recommend this tour. It was wonderful to visit nside the two castles. Our guide and the bus driver were nice and explained everything to us. Our guide had so many funny stories about the castles owners. The bus was very confortable. An excellent tour for anyone visiting the Copenhagen. I took the Castle tours on Tuesday. Unmissable!
We had a fabulous guide and this tour was the highlight of our stay in Denmark.
Easy way to see attractions outside of Copenhagen, The castles were very interesting.
Terrific tour guides. Time is a little cramped but you get to see a lot in a day. Highly recommend.
Very interesting, but need at least an extra 45 min. To an hour at each of the 2 Castles visited with the guide.
