  • Copenhagen: Roskilde, Frederiksborg & Kronborg Day Tour

    1. Copenhagen: Roskilde, Frederiksborg & Kronborg Day Tour

    Enjoy a scenic sightseeing tour of North Sealand on an 8.5-hour excursion from Copenhagen, and visit the royal monuments of Kronborg Castle and Frederiksborg Castle and the World Heritage site of Roskilde Cathedral. Ideal for those who want to explore further than the city center to see as much as possible of historic Denmark, but are short of time, you will travel in a small group for a more personalized experience. The tour includes time to explore the imposing exteriors and interiors of Frederiksborg and Kronborg castles, the latter set on the banks of the Sund between Denmark and Sweden, and most notable as the site of Elsinore in Shakespeare’s “Hamlet.” Soak up the romantic setting of Frederiksborg Castle in Hillerød, surrounded by a beautiful lake and gardens. The guide will take you to Roskilde to visit Roskilde Cathedral, burial site of 39 Danish kings and queens, including In...

    Really great tour if you are trying to see a lot in one day. This tour takes you to 4 locations. Our guide was absolutely fantastic. It will feel a little rushed if you are someone who wants to really get into the weeds, then this may not be for you. However, I found the time at all locations to be adequate enough to appease my appetite. The only location where I found that a little more time may have been nice was the cathedral, but it was closing early that day. Overall, the price may seem a little high but the value is how much time you save and having direct transportation to and from the locations. (The bonus was the wonderful guide who answered all questions about Danish culture).

    Good experience and very informative. My suggestion would be to have a microphone or something so that people at the back of the vehicle can hear the guide, especially if people in the front of the vehicle are talking.

    Oliver was a highly professional, friendly and very well informed guide. He was helpful and flexible in allowing us to see just what we wanted to see. We had a terrific day, we covered a lot of Danish history and learnt so much visiting both these two historic sites and a local town for lunch too. Hence the excellent rating.

Sven Erick, my tour guide, he's punctual, fun & knowledgeable. He's also very organized. Keep the tour went smoothly, covered lots of grounds, even had extra because the tour group was on time at every single stop. Worth the money, highly recommended !!
