A Recent Review of this tour

Philip is a wonderful guide, very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. I learned a lot about Copenhagen with him. He made me appreciate the little details that mark the culture of the Danish people. Pity the Sinagogue was closed but, believe you me ....... Philip had nothing to do with it. In short: I had a great time! Thank you Philip!
