Hamlets Castle tour is great.

I had a private tour with Nacho from Copenhagen to Elsinore by train. The day was perfect and Nacho was the best guide. He was very knowledgeable and so nice. When we got to the castle, just a short walk from the train, a production of Hamlet was going on in different rooms. It was really fun. Great tour.

Nicolas was a delightful guide.

We missed nothing. He took us to all the nooks and crannies. He was reasonably good with the history.
