Overall rating

4.5
(11,942 reviews)

The experience was unique but the only problem is you don't have to buy tickets for children younger than 3 but they can't go on the rides unless you buy them a pass which nobody mentions. Why don't you just make it so you buy them a pass, not having the need to go wait in line just so they tell you that.Also a lot of the fast food joints are overpriced. But overall it an awesome place to visit.

We had the best Hamlet tour ever! Sillas was the most amazing guide; he always had a smile on his face, made the funniest jokes, knew all the history of each stop, and made the experience in Copenhagen excellent. Would 10/10 recommend this tour.

Our tour guide Noah was so friendly and knowledgeable- we learnt so much about the pastries and also copenhagen! Really would recommend this tour.

Really great canal tour with a tour guide who knew her stuff. Some really stunning views throughout and would highly recommend.

Excellent trip! If you love history this is the one for you! Chris, our tour guide, was outstanding!
