My best friend and I recently visited Copenhagen for 5 days. We found this tour via Get Your Guide and we would totally recommend it. A great opportunity to see more of Denmark, as well as to hop over to Sweden and explore here as well. The tour is a good balance of an audio guide (on the bus) and independent free time to explore at each location. Good earphones and bottles of water are provided as part of the tour. We had Mario who was a great guide.

It was a great option to see more of Denmark an a little bit of Sweden. It was a very comfortable and safe trip. In each place you have time to look around on your own and eat. It’s a very nice tour.

this tour was very informative. We learned a lot about the history of Lund and Malmo. our guide was very knowledgeable and was very enthousiastic about everything he was telling. he knew a lot.

Great tour of two countries, highly recommend! Our guide/driver Stein was the best, can’t say enough good things about him!!

The bus ride was comfortable and there was a nice amount of time for each location.
