EXCELLENT, EXCELLENT!!!! Money well spent towards an amazing day. Of course it would not be fitting if I did not mention the extra ordinary service provided by our guide Emilo. What an amazing person he is and so full of knowledge. He's well suited for this tour with such a large group. We were lucky enough to be able to visit the gardens at the castle that I could only describe as something out of a fairytale. Added to this, we were lucky to arrive in time to witness the changing of the guards at the royal summer residence. Keep up the good work Viator.
Very interesting, but need at least an extra 45 min. To an hour at each of the 2 Castles visited with the guide.
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.
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.
This was an excellent tour for anyone visiting the Copenhagen, Denmark area.
Kronborg Castle was stunning. It was a beautiful setting and a really cool castle to explore. The tour included a guided tour of the castle and grounds, which really helped to bring the fortress alive. Fredensborg Palace was a brief stop and you could only see the palace from the outside, but it was a beautiful setting in a very quaint town. The guided tour of Frederiksborg Castle was the highlight. It is a magnificent example of what you imagine a castle should be.
Our guide and driver were fantastic. They took turns pointing out interesting historical, architectural and geographical highlights we passed and kept the longer driving parts of the tour interesting and enjoyable.
This was a great tour. Well worth the money and time.
A great way to see the castles and palaces in Denmark. Great commentary from Kim on the way to Kronberg Castle. Tour was well organised- the only thing I would have enjoyed was time to walk around the gardens at one of the palaces. Worthwhile trip if you have limited time in Denmark.
Wonderful tours of castles. plus extra country sightseeing on the way.
These are beautiful places. The bus is comfortable and it took us to three castles. Each has something for kids to do and so its a pleasure to tour them. Will definitely recommend for the vistas.
GREAT tour. Jen and Per were great. I would definitely recommend this tour.
What a nice day this was notwithstanding the pouring rain. The drive in the country from Copenhagen was very nice. The scenic route showed us a different view of Denmark. The visits of the castles were well organized our guide very knowledgeable. We enjoyed this tour a lot. Would highly recommend the tour.
Very good tour and our tour guide Kim was awesome. They should provide some more extra time for pictures
Tour grear but nowhere viator or on voucher or in advance informed no handbags/purses allowed inside castles. advised to leave purse on locked bus or to purchase a locker. Not comfortable leaving a $5K handbag on a tour bus! If I and #39;d known in advance I would have taken different bag!
Great tour of the countryside and castles along the way. As with most European sites and cities, handicapped accessibility is very limited. Most of the castles my wife could not visit beyond the front entrance -- I got to see the whole castles, floor by floor, but not my wife. This is not the fault of the tour, but do we aware that Europe is not ADA attentive, for sure.
Add this tour to your bucket list.
This tour was fantastic. Our guide Bruno and driver Thomas were heaps of fun, knowledgeable and cared for all on our bus. Learnt so much about Danish history in such an entertaining way. Highly recommend this trip.
