I would suggest you train your guide not to use political comments when discussing Denmarks history. We know most Danish despise President Donald Trump but he should keep his personal comments to himself.

Dear Marion I agree with you. Our guides should not talk negatively about any American president. We do not despise President Trump and if that was the impression you got from our guide we apologise.

The tour guide Thomas had an excellent knowledge of the places we went to. The trip was informative and it provided some insight into the lives of Danish people. The historical information provided by our tour guide was good. This trip is good for those who have very little time in Denmark.

Honestly I was expecting to learn more historical facts about Copenhagen and Denmark: however, a good portion of the knowledge shared was about the current economic situation, significant businesses, and the royal family. It was all information I didn’t know so we were grateful to learn, I was just expecting more historical pieces.
That being said, our tour guide was very knowledgeable and we had a wonderful time seeing the sights offered and everything went smoothly. Highly recommend if you only have a short time in Copenhagen and want to get out of the city.

This was a terrific, full-day experience. The guide, Thomas, was outstanding, providing extensive historical background and commentary at all four sites we visited. (In a jam-packed itinerary, he also did a great job keeping us on schedule). I appreciated the small size of the group, as well as the clean, comfortable mini-bus.

The tour guide, Nick, was fantastic. It was a great tour and would recommend to anyone visiting Copenhagen! The bus was comfortable. We visited the Fredericksborg Palace, Roskilde Cathedral, Viking Museum and Kronsborg Castle. Lots of history and beautiful architecture.
