Terrific tour guides. Time is a little cramped but you get to see a lot in a day. Highly recommend.
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.
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!
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 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.
Wonderful views of Cop city, as well as countryside. Castles are not to be missed!
My wife and I just returned from our Baltic Sea cruise with additional days in Copenhagen, Denmark. We took the Castle tours on Monday. It was a trip that we can recommend without question. We visited three castles, although we were only able to go inside two of them. Our guide and bus driver were both very knowledgeable, friendly, and accommodating. The only concern we would have would be that there is no time built in for lunch during the seven hour trip. Sandwiches were available as well as water on the bus, but they were not anything we were interested in having. It would have been nice to know in advance about this so that we could have brought a bagged lunch. One added extra for the trip was the views of the beautiful countryside we saw during the drive to the castles.
Wish we had more time to explore the grounds.
This was a great tour, we enjoyed it very much, it was as someone else said a bit confusing to find where the tour started from. Our guide was most knowledgeable and the actors at hamlets castle was an extra treat. The day flew by.
