In the Footsteps of the Vikings - daytrip from Copenhagen to Roskilde

Absolutely brilliant event. Our Guide (Ole) was superb, amusing, and very knowledgeable. Superb presentation at the Viking Ship building site, and an extra bonus item included - a visit to see inside a Viking burial mound! And the lovely Roskilde Cathedral! Our party was just 14, so very comfortable, nice tour mini-bus. Generous time allowed at each stop, no rushing at all. I would recommend this tour as 5-star!
An interesting day

We enjoyed this trip into the countryside from Copenhagen. The Viking boat centre was very interesting, and it was a shame we couldn't stay longer. It was a good idea to order lunch to eat in the bus while travelling. Roskilde cathedral was nice, the musuem interesting, and the ancient burial mound something quite different. In all a good day.
Fun, relaxing, but too fast

Had a great time and gave me something to do in the afternoon. However we spent way to little time at each of the museums. Tour guide was funny and informative, I ended up taking a wonderful canal cruise later that day which he recommended.
Move back in time!!

A great day-trip to take. You visit the Vikings shipyard in Roskilde, the Roskilde Cathedral and Leire, the Vikings first site. Very interesting tour with a luxury mini-bus and a knowledgeable guide. We really enjoyed it. Thanks PHILIP!!

Our guide was very knowledgeable and the driver very efficient. The stop at the Roskilde Cathedral didn’t have any connection to Vikings - about half of our group found it interesting. Nevertheless, that part of the tour was also well done. The highlight was of course the Viking longboats and associated museum.

I would recommend this tour to anyone. The guide was very knowledgeable and it was a pleasant drive through the Danish countryside. Learned a lot about Danish history in general, not just Viking history. Loved learning about how the Vikings built their ships.
Very good once we found the bus

Interesting trip but location of bus was very unclear. We had trouble finding where to get on the bus and almost missed it. We were very disgruntled by this. Most people we asked had no idea where to look. Fortunately found someone from other tour group who helped us. I would not book with Viator again unfortunately because of this.
Great day trip!

A day well spent in Roskilde and the Viking museum. Our guide was just a wealth of information. Our second stop was a church which was beautiful and very historic. Don't miss this trip when in Copenhagen
