What people are saying about Copenhagen
My two friends and I really enjoyed the cruise on Saturday and it was mostly thanks to the knowledgeable and very funny Julian ! Thank you, you made our day ! Especially while approaching the disappointing Little Mermaid, which is even more little than her name indicates. And yet, you made us laugh with your comments !
Bruno was great! He made sure we were always at the rught spot to fully enjoy the enactment of Hamlet. His knowledge helped through out both castles.
He was patient and very detailed. He really took interest in what we wanted to do but also explained what had to see. He did not go by the clock. We enjoyed our tour with him!
It was a great bonus that the two day HOHO included a shuttle to our cruise ship on the morning of our third day! Thanks We l9ved that this qualified as one of four HOHO tours that gave us a free trip in Helsinki.. save your receipts from the other tours to show the driver.
The buses have a retractable roof so are open top in the summer which is great. 3 routes cover the city and the 1.5 hour boat trip is great and the best way to see the city. No live guides which is a shame but the on board head phone commentary is good.
