Please Note

We offer a hotel pickup from most hotels in the centre of Copenhagen. We will pick you up 30-50 minutes before the tour starts. You will receive an e-mail with the exact pickup time at least 24 hours prior to the tour. We do NOT go to hotels outside the city center. This includes hotels near the airport such as Crowne Plaza and AC Bella Sky and hotels in the Nordhavn area such as Adina Apartments. Certain hotels which are located within a few minutes' walk of the starting point are also not included because you would spend a lot more time getting picked up and then driven around to other pick ups rather than just walk a few minutes directly to the starting point of the tour if you are staying right next to it. You are very welcome to contact us to inquire about specific hotels. Your bus for the day is a plain white mini-bus. If you have any doubts regarding your pickup please feel free to call the tour operator, Hamlet Tours, at +4530700667. PLEASE NOTE: The tour will involve a lot of walking and steep stairs. As the historic sights are not equipped for accessibility, the tour is not suitable for people in wheelchairs or for people having difficulties with long distances of walking.

Traveler Tips

Also an absolute must is to wear sensible walking shoes (ie sports shoes).
It helps when you are on a short schedule as you can go to a few landmarks in a day.
Take a packed lunch so you have plenty of time to see The amazing Frederiksborg castle, I thoroughly recommend this tour - Enjoy!

What amazing castles we visited. Our guide Thomas was excellent and our driver Frank was so knowledgeable he to could have been our tour guide. They both were a great team and provided great information that made the castles history come alive. We would have never gotten a full understanding and appreciation about Denmark if we didn’t take this tour. Thanks again Thomas and Frank.

Edna_G, Apr 2022
We enjoyed tne tour very much. Our guide explained a lot about the history of Danmark and about what we see on our way. Did a lot of explaining in the church and on Hamlets Casle. We were a little bit in a hurry at the Vikings museum and missed some time there.
