I am an Authorised Guide graduated from Roskilde University and work as a full-time guide.
I have lived in Copenhagen for most of my life but also lived in England for a long time allowing me to view Denmark both with the eyes of an insider and an outsider.
I enjoy making history come to life. I may put the huge Danish Empire of the past back on the map, sometimes the Vikings come out complete with war paint, tattoos and dragon ships, or I may give my guests a real sense of the life of the Danish Royal family as it unfolded itself at the numerous royal palaces and castles.
Whilst walking, cycling or driving around the back streets of medieval Copenhagen I enjoy creating a picture that appeals to the imagination and the senses of my guests; images that bring to life the carriages rattling over the cobbled streets, the hustle and bustle of city life and the distinctive character and smells of the old city.
But what about Danes today? You might think that, being amongst the happiest people on the planet, Danes are walking around with a permanent grin on their faces. Well, no they are not but I will make sure that, by the end of our tour, you will know exactly what makes Danes so happy.
In Copenhagen the absolute majority use bicycles and public transport to get around so naturally most of my tours are on foot or bicycles.
Should you prefer to travel by car I will arrange for a car with a professional driver to take us around the city or further afield to visit the royal castles North of Copenhagen or Roskilde with its cathedral and Viking Ship Museum.
Some Swedes think that Danes are untrustworthy anarchists. True or false? We could nip over to Sweden to re-visit old Danish territory and learn what the Swedes are like!
Should you not quite find what you are looking for in my list of tours just let me know and I will tailor-make a tour just for you.
A Recent Review of this guide
"Susanne provided excellent service and we can recommend her highly. We wanted both a driving and walking tour. Car and driver were superb. Susanne had designed our time with her based on interests we named in advance. She also responded readily to emails ahead of our tour about possible restaurant choices. She even confirmed our dinner reservation directly with the restaurant and then with us. She also responded readily to a last minute change in our drop off point. You can't go wrong with Susanne.
