What people are saying about Copenhagen
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.
Friendly guide who had interesting information about the locations we visited. The best way to explore Copenhagen if you're there for the first time. You see briefly a lot of places around the centre so you can decide which ones to visit later in more detail. There are bike lanes almost everywhere so moving around was smooth.
Our guide Alex, was a great talk, and gave a very entertaining context for the whole ride. I could not ask anything to which he did not have an amusing answer. I was only missing from the tour "Freetown Christiania" and the "snake", which is the famous biker bridge in Copenhagen.
Pre-booked voucher was excellent , no fuss fast track entry to the gardens. Will definitely come back to Copenhagen to visit the gardens again especially when illuminated at night and with concert /pantomime theatre performances.
I think my guide's name was Benji. We covered so much ground, and he gave us much information in an upbeat interesting fashion. He took us to the castle ballrooms as well as the underground jails. Thoroughly enjoyed the day.
