Philip D.

Copenhagen, Denmark

Many years ago I came to Denmark from England because I was curious to find out why Danes were "The Happiest Nation on Earth".

I am delighted to say that I found out and am willing to share this with you!

Having fallen in love with Copenhagen, Denmark (and a Dane) I became fascinated by Danish history and culture; a passion which led me to become educated as a tour guide.

With a background in the music business in London and later as a psychotherapist I am well qualified to listening and my guiding is always based around the interests and requirements of my guests.

I am not an academic, there are other guides who are; if you want a tour filled with detail of Kings and dates then look elsewhere because what I offer is a viewpoint of Denmark and Copenhagen seen from the eye of a very interested Englishman. That said every day I continue to study the story of the Land of the Vikings.

My favourite past-time is wandering the streets of Copenhagen looking for unusual routes and sights to show my guests. The buildings may be beautiful but they come alive with a story.

Above all my aim is for you (and I) to have a entertaining and fun day whilst I share my love and knowledge of my wonderful adopted homeland.

A Recent Review of this guide

Fabulous. Have used ToursByLocals many times and no one has been better. Timely, professional, knowledgeable, humorous, courteous. Whats more to say. His relaxed manner made every one comfortable as he carefully listened to and answered all of our inquiries. There were five in on our group and were provided with a great driver in a very comfortable vehicle with water at hand. Outstanding in all aspects. If ever in Copenhagen Phillip "Is The Man".

Most of my tours are on foot or bicycle.. Some of the cruise ship harbour out of the city and require transportation, I have access to private limousines and coaches where applicable.
