Highlights
  • Ideal for travelers interested in learning about Danish history 
  • Save time by visiting four sites in one day
  • Small-group tour limited to 16 people means plenty of personal attention
  • Includes convenient round-trip transportation from your Copenhagen hotel
What to Expect
Begin your tour at your hotel in central Copenhagen or the designated departure point across from City Hall. Head out of the city with your small group to visit four grand sites. See Kronborg Castle, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that fortified the entrance to the Baltic Sea for six centuries. Learn about the castle’s royal history, and how it is tied to Shakespeare’s play, Hamlet. Visit Frederiksborg Palace, the largest Renaissance castle in Scandinavia. Move to Roskilde Cathedral, burial spot for numerous Danish kings and queens. Tours between November and March don’t have access to the cathedral interior; visitors will take narrated walk around the structure's exterior instead. Head back to Copenhagen, passing Danish countryside, for a visit to the Viking Ship Museum. Learn how the Vikings built their ships and ruled the North Atlantic. Finish the tour at your original departure point.

My friend and I really enjoyed this tour. The best part of the trip was Harry, who is so knowledgable. My only wish is that he had been able to be our guide for Frederiksborg Castle because the museum-provided explanations weren't very thorough.
