This tour was very enjoyable and informative. Our guide Jamshed James was delightful and very knowledgeable. Enjoyed all the mini stops for delicious treats!
Great walking tour of Copenhagen and helped to explain why they are always one of the top happiest countries in the world. Not only did we see lots of sites, we heard about their lifestyle, political views and way of life that is quite different than where we live in the US. Plus, 3 great stops in a Danish bakery, chocolate house and coffee shop.
My 5 star rating partially based upon the price paid:
5 Exceeded expectations
4 Met expectations
3 Did not meet expectations but still would have engaged with the vendor
2 Would not have engaged with the vendor but wouldnt dissuade others from doing so
1 Would not have engaged with the vendor and would not recommend others doing so either
Morton gave a good tour and knowledge of some of the finer points of Copenhagen
Small group so was able to be conversational
Felt like we were getting a personal tour
Exceeded expectations because we didn't focus on touristy places and get to understand a bit about Danish culture
Amazing!Our host really embodied the Hygge culture. We had lots of great discussions throughout the entire walk. The group was small so we all added something unique to the experience. Highly recommend.
Great tour. Amazing Danish pastries. Tour guide was very friendly, answered all our questions about Danish life and Hugge. She also spent time at the end of our tour talking to each of us about what else to do in Copenhagen. Thank you
Morten was great, knowledgable, and most interesting. He made it a great tour. Loved the stops. Particularly the King's Garden. A hidden gem. Loved the Summerbird Chocolate store. The best chocolate ever. We were only three on the tour so that it made it quite personal and relaxed. Bravo to Morten!
This was a grand experience. Mia was an excellent guide, full of information and stories...I liked the path she chose for us to walk, starting with the wonderfully orange military housing punctuated by the best breakfast pastry I ever ate at her favorite bakery, a stroll across the King's Garden with a stop at my beloved HC Andersen's statue, then a visit with a delightful chocolatier who was making the most beautiful spring chocolates with edible flowers and finally a drink at a coffee shop I would never have found on my own...we got a taste of Danish politics which was very interesting to both my husband and me when we paused at the Parliament building...really a great way to spend a morning in Copenhagen. Sign up - you'll be glad you did!
Adorei este tour, guia super gentil e agradável, tem bastante conhecimento sobre a história e atmosfera da cidade. além das degustações que foram incríveis e os locais que só os nativos frequentam. Muito bom!
