I absolutely loved this tour. Stuart is incredibly knowledgeable and with a great sense of humor. The tour was interactive, fun, interesting and really informative. I totally recommend it to anyone who wants to know Denmark through the eyes of someone who chose to have his home here after visiting 70 countries and living in more than than 20 of them.

Excellent tour from a very well informed guide. I really enjoyed my 3 hours with Stuart. He was full of knowledge of Copenhagen and has some excellent facts and stories regarding the city and its people.

A walking tour made incredibly enjoyable by our host and guide Edgar. He was spontaneous, relaxed and very very knowledgeable about everything Copenhagen and history overall. Highly recommended.

A whole new and playful way of discovering a city. Class!

Stuart was very knowledgeable and the time flew by.
