845 years of history: Kings, queens, castles, canals, churches - and the Little Mermaid.

During this amazing four hour private tour you will see all the most popular sights and experience the best parts of the city, among other things: the site of the Little Mermaid, the palace Amalienborg (the official residence of The Royal Family), the castle Christiansborg (the Royal Reception Rooms and the Danish Parliament), the renaissance castle Rosenborg, the Marble Church, Town Hall Square with statue of writer H. C. Andersen, the picturesque harbour and canal area Nyhavn and a look at the world famous amusement park the Tivoli Gardens. You will experience the special atmosphere of Copenhagen, combining the history of the oldest monarchy in Europe with the prosperity of the danish welfare society.
I can adjust the schedule and duration (3-8 h. ). Danish lunch, visits inside Christiansborg and/or Rosenborg, visits to Jewish sites and visits to the two castles of North Zealand: Frederiksborg and Kronborg ('Castle of Hamlet', part of UNESCO's World Heritage List) can be added.

A Recent Review of this tour

Anders communicated very often and well before the tour, and even came outside the city to pick us up which was wonderful. He was very flexible during the tour to adjust it to our taste, and was patient while we asked many many questions. It was a terrific tour and memorable day for me and my sons. Thanks Anders!
