I've been trying to get back in the running groove, but travel has made it difficult. So when I landed in Copenhagen I decided to force myself to get out there by signing up for a running/tour. I was mostly just looking for a local to show me a route with little planning/hassle on my own, but I got much... More

Hi Lex, Thank you for your review and I am happy that we managed to get your running despite late notice and a busy meeting schedule. Also thank you for the Medoc Marathon advice :-) Signe is indeed both a good guide but also a very good runner and it sounds like you took advantage of her good fitness. Once... More

I'd been I Copenhagen for a week of work and had not really seen the city. I did the tour with Lena and it was great. I went at 7am and the city was just waking up which was great as we saw the sights with basically no one else around. Little mermaid with just Lena, another runner, myself and... More

Hi Mitch, The pleasure was all mine, and I am glad you managed to see just a bit of the city before you left. Copenhagen is too good a place to not fully explore it (that said in all humility of course ;-)). It was very interesting to hear about your research and I will indeed keep an eye for... More

I had a fantastic time sharing a run with Lena through Copenhagen. Our run through Nørrebro provided an excellent look into all aspects of life in Copenhagen. Lena is a superb guide and wonderful conversationalist. I very much enjoyed discussing politics, development, history, food, and culture among a plethora of other topics and Lena was kind enough to pass along... More

Hi Karsten, I am particurly happy you point out my conversational abilitiies as these were somewhat limited by your insane pace - Thank you for easing a bit on the 4 min/km pace :-) It was a real joy to show you Nørrebro and as you also say a pleasure to discuss politics, culture, space programmes and the always important...

We had a terrific time on the family run with Lena! She was prompt to pick up at our apartment, and we got an early start to see the sites before the crowds. Her stories entertained the kids (ages 6 and 11) - just enough information to keep the kids interested. When we passed some of the places again (or... More

Hi Jennifer, Guiding your family on your tour was a true joy. I am still super impressed that Calista and Zach ran the 8 km tour without even blinking (or walking). And I am very glad my stories about Copenhagen and the mermaid stuck. They will be impressing everyone with the knowledge that HC Andersen wanted to be a ballet... More

What should you do in fairy tale Copenhagen after seeing it through the eyes of your handy DK guide or a Hans Christian Andersen tour?

Hi Patrick and Tom, The tour was completely my pleasure, and it was great to guide the two of you on the XL tour. This always allows me to show a bit more of the "real" side of Copenhagen and allows us to be a bit spontaneous. I hope that our small capital fell to your taste so much that... More

I had a wonderful time running with Lena through the streets of Copenhagen. You don't have to worry about being a slower runner, Lena accommodates to your pace perfectly. I saw practically everything to see in Copenhagen on our tour and enjoyed Lena's company tremendously. Would highly recommend.

I was scared! Really scared! I thought, yes, my girlfriend would be really happy about the surprise of exploring Copenhagen while running but her pace and likely the one of our guide would probably kill me. But it turned out to be so great to run with Lena who had a good sense in finding the right speed for both... More

I had a wonderful experience. Lena was very helpful in providing information beforehand and getting me signed up. She offered me the option of going on an off the beaten track run to Christiana, which helped me get a real feel for life in Copenhagen. She was very knowledgeable pointing out interesting sights during the run. Afterwards, she provided me... More

Lena guided us in a wonderful running tour throughout Kopenhagen last Saturday. Not only did she manage to show us all major spots in town, she also has a very natural and spontaneous way of telling the stories as if she is talking to friends.
