What people are saying about Zealand

Wonderful & informative tour full of all things festive, primarily focused on the history & traditions of Danish Yule although some other interesting bit of info too. Silke, our guide, was so warm, friendly & eager to help. I informed her that it was my first time travelling solo & that I was a little afraid! She went out of her way to make sure I knew exactly where I was going & even marked out on a map all the places I should visit. l left with a warm heart! Definitely recommend ♡

It was a really nice tour, with a really well informed guide, who could answer any question relating Danish Christmas traditions. It is a really worth it!

Very cool!

The guide has told a lot. She had a lot of knowledge and was super friendly!
