This tour is a must do while in Denmark. It might feel costly, but it's a live history lesson for a day, so it is worth it. You will see the VIking's Ship Museum, a place that not only holds five ancient Viking ships (thus the name) but it also has a workshop where skilled workers build new Viking ships modeling the old techniques and materials. You will see the Rosklide Cathedral, a gorgeous cathedral which remains the focal point for all major events involving Danish royals (weddings, baptisms, burials....). In addition to touring the Hamlet's Castle, you will also visit the Fredericksborg Palace which must be one of the more beautiful historic monuments in the world. From the beautiful art, to antique furniture, to vast gardens -- it truly has everything to enchant you. My favorite -- the old church. It is simply lovely. I truly recommend this tour.
Fantastic venue for the day with all the sites. Perfect if you only have a day to see as much as possible and the peak points. Note to guide....... his voice doesn't carry very far and hard to hear so always use the VAN speaker when talking to the group in the VAN. Also....... if Departure time is 9:30AM the bus should leave at 9:30AM for those on time and not wait for those that are late. Because the bus waited almost 20 minutes for 3 additional late people we had to rush through the Viking Museum with only 40 minutes so see it all and not nearly enough time.
Since I only had a couple days in Copenhagen this tour was really great for me to be able to get out of Copenhagen and see a bit more of what Denmark had to offer and it was well worth it. We saw a lot of nice things and I like to shoot videos and got lots of great footage. The only thing that was annoying is that I am tall (about 6 feet) and the seats in the bus were quite small, my back was resting on part of the neck rest while driving around. Luckily the rides were always under 50 minutes so it wasn't too bad. Great tour!
Very good organized tour which allow you to see 4 interesting sights. Our guide was very professional, polite and provide a lot of interesting information about the history of Denmark and sights we visited. I really enjoyed the day and will highly recommend this tour to any traveller. Thank you, Hamlet Tours! Well done! =)
More time is needed at the Viking museum. It was so rushed at that point. Our guide was lovely but she was not particularly engaging in her presentations and was quite hesitant and halting in her speech which made her difficult to follow at times. She was very caring though and tried hard to look after everyone.
