Wonderful day trip to see all you need in Denmark. We traveled in a comfortable mini bus with very knowledgable guide (Nick), who made this day pleasant and relaxed, despite the busy schedule. It was both educational and fun, and I recommend it to anyone who wants to see the highlights of Denmark outside Copenhagen. Great value for money, all entry tickets and transport included. Very helpful and nice guide that offered us an excellent service with a big smile.

The guide was very friendly and excellent at explaining Denmark's history. He made pleasant conversations with all of us and made sure we were all comfortable. I really enjoyed myself and found it very easy to absorb what he was telling us, so I learned a lot from this experience. It was an amazing introduction to Denmark. Thank you

A terrific value for sightseeing and using public transportation. Gave many options and helped in making the best use of my time in København.

This was an incredible tour! We learned so much and it was a great way to do a lot in one day!

Very fun and informative tour, Benji or tour guy knows a lot and is funny
