Paul was very knowledgeable. Beautiful historic places in Copenhagen along with the new. Great tour.
Paul is an excellent guide. He showed us many sights we would not have easily found & gave a lot of interesting historical information. We thoroughly enjoyed our 5 hour tour of Copenhagen by bike and boat. There are no hills so it is easy riding. We booked this tour for the day after our arrival and it gave us an excellent overview of Copenhagen, helping us to get our bearings. We stopped for good coffee and a quick, inexpensive bite to eat as needed. Highly recommended.

This was a great tour. We were able to see a lot. Ken took us all over Copenhagen and we were able to see so much more than we would have on our own. He also shared a lot about the culture and how people lived. Highly recommended!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Great to hear, tank you. It's my pleasure to make the city open up.
Shirley HutchesonUnited States
This was a very fun way to see A LOT of the city in one day. Easy and fun biking. Paul's knowledge of history was wonderful. He made sure we experienced all the different areas of Copenhagen.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It'd nice you liked the range of the tour. And I'm sorry about the bicycle trouble, and I hope you were not too tired at the end. Paul

My husband and I had Paul for a 5 hour private tour, it was the highlight of our visit to Copenhagen, it was fantastic. Paul was very knowledge , easy to listen to and with his stories made the city come alive , any question we asked he was able to answer and we have come away with an understand of Copenhagen and the Danish way of life Thank you Paul

Phyllis MillerUnited States
Paul was extremely knowledgeable in regard to his subject matter. He was as well, eager to please and attentive to the minutest of details.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks. It was a nice day - and a long day for you I think. But we made the most of Copenhagen. Paul
Linda CohenUnited States
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for a nice day in Copenhagen. I'm definitely going to put up the "Harborside Sail and Walk" as a separate tour.

Jason W.Los Angeles, CA, United States
Touring with Paul is similar to touring with a professor. His knowledge of both the historical and modern day Copenhagen is second to none. I don't think there is anything he does not know or will find out. We had been referred by a friend to a shop with no name, no directions, no address and honestly thought it was ridiculous to tell Paul about what we were told....but he listened and found it.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi, it was really fun to do the horsemanship oriented tour of Copenhagen, and have a closer look at the tackle store (unfortunately closed).
David SteinbergUnited States
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: My pleasure!
Sheryl ManningUnited States
Paul was very knowledgeable, energetic, funny and fun to be with. Loved our walking through the many neighborhoods of Copenhagen and the perfect Danish lunch in the old meat packing district- very cool!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Always a pleasure to go out of the way, and nice to get the chance to talk city development in the places it's actually going on. Hope you enjoyed Oslo and the rest of the cruise.
Stephen MerrittUnited States
Paul was excellent. He was very knowledgeable and helpful. Absolutely one of the best tours that we have ever had. A great mix of the old and new history of Copenhagen.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much. It was s pleasure showing you around. Hope you'll have a nice stay when you return! Paul
Martha KerstnerUnited States
This was our favorite excursion on our 3 week trip. We saw so much of Copenhagen that we would never have seen on a group excursion. Paul guided us down little paths and into so many great places! So much fun even for fairly beginner bike riders like us! Would definitely recommend!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks. Glad you enjoyed Copenhagen. I like it too, riding in the city, just to enjoy it. But also when you have things to do, going around should be nice. Thankfully the city can work for you that way. Hope you had a nice trip afterwards too. Paul
William KeaneUnited States
Paul met us at our hotel in downtown Copenhagen, and he was simply delightful. Paul was extremely knowledgeable and a good teacher. We saw a lot of things that are on the tourist maps. but we also saw hidden courtyards and a lot of old architecture that we would have completely missed without Paul. He made useful suggestions as we only had that one day in Copenhagen. The tour was a super experience, and our friend agreed entirely. Well worth it to us. Paul is an excellent guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a nice long walk, and interesting conversations. It helped you were well weathered from the Faroe Islands, as it was not the sunniest day in Copenhagen, and I hope you enjoyed the rest of your stay here. Paul H.
William M.United States
Paul was an intersting guy. Very pleased with what he showed us on the tour. He managed to get access to places we would not have been able to see on our own. It was a thorough tour with some special aspects such as taking the water taxi so we had a canal view of the beautiful new opera house. Our trip would have been incomplete if not for his tour. Recommend him
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks, It was fun to get off the beaten path for me too, and to get back to classic Copenhagen as well Paul
Kim PenneyUnited States
What a wonderful way to see much of Copenhagen. Riding bikes w our grown kids and spouses was most memorable. Paul's knowledge and navigation made this a great kick off to our Baltic Cruise.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi, this was a delightful ride for me too! Paul
Vincent ViaggioUnited States
Paul was very knowledgeable and comprehensive in showing us Copenhagen. A rich sense of history, he's an excellent tour guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi, Thank you in return for an nice day in town with a lot of perspective. Paul
Paul went out of his way to ensure that we had an informative, interesting and delicious day. He has a deep historical perspective of the region. Great day!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot for an interesting day, on a tour that ended up different than I thought. I trust your friend has recovered well. Paul
Doris S.United States
Paul is most accommodating and we learned much about the history, culture, and architecture of Copenhagen. He took us to see "behind the scenes" courtyards and interesting parts of the culture that most tourists miss. And he has a strong voice to insure that his guests don't miss what is being said.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Nice to know you enjoyed the tour and the city. It's a pleasure to have good company! Yours truly, Paul H.
Keola WhittakerUnited States
Paul was wonderful - both informative and friendly. Tak!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for good company, and a real interest in getting to know the city. Good walking energy. We enjoyed the chocolates, and my eldest daughter adopted the crocheted cloth. Happy travels.
Knowledgable and professional. We learned so much about Copenhagen and he delighted us by exploring places tourists don't normally see. Tremendous value.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you likewise for a great day, where the sun came out in the afternoon. It was fun to add the Meat Packing district to the tour, and end by passing through Christiania. Also thanks for lunch.
Amelia LimKilauea, HAWAII, United States
Insightful and funny! A wonderful guide who really knew his city! Recommend without hesitation!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: How nice to hear from you. Copenhagen was nice for January, and it was a nice day for both teenagers and grownups. It adds some with such a family group.
Jonathan FrutkinUnited States
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Jonathan, it was good showing you around here.
Christy NeidigUnited States
The walking tour was very interesting since Paul is very knowledgeable and, with his excellent English, was able to inform us so well of the history associated with the sites we saw. The pace of the tour was perfect for our group of 4 adults. All of us would HIGHLY RECOMMEND Paul. In addition, he gave us some shopping and restaurant suggestions that were spot on and appreciated.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you. It is very nice you liked the city, which is really nice to walk in when you get the pace.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi, I hope you enjoyed the day, and that your friend recovered. Paul
Damon CookmanUnited Kingdom
Paul was wonderful. We have nothing but fantastic things to say about him and could not fault him in the slightest, he is friendly, knowledgeable and a wonderful host. Give him a payrise please and please do pass on our thanks again for a perfect day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot. It was a very nice tour.
Elliot KeyneUnited States
I highly recommend using Paul as a tour guide. Paul spoke very good English and was very knowledgeable and personable. He told very good historical stories that brought Copenhagen to life. He took us to all the major points of interest. It was a terrific day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I'm happy you liked the city and the tour, and thanks for the inspiring conversation.
Sue KaufmanUnited States
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot. I'm glad you and your friends enjoyed the day.
Sue KaufmanUnited States
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for a walking day that took me out of the normal rounds and in to my own neighborhood. And I enjoyed Jim's graveyard clues.
Susan L.United States
One of the best tours we have taken and the first time we used a guide from TBL. Paul, our guide, made it a very enjoyable because of his knowledge of Denmark's history that he incorporated into his narration. He arrived on time at a pre-designated location. Paul tailored the tour to places we wanted to see along with other cultural sites he recommended. He also modified our walk to accommodate the rain showers. Be prepared to walk about 5 miles through the cobblestone streets of Copenhagen.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much. It was a nice tour, and we really got around, since you had already seen some of the centre, and this gave some extra time for the Citadel, the Royal Gardens etc. I had to rest ny feet as well af the walk! I wish you a good cruise around the Baltic.
Gail SteinbergUnited States
We had a fantastic tour with Paul. He is deeply knowledgeable and engaging. His itinerary by bicycle provided us with a thorough "insider" view of Copenhagen. Furthermore, he was able to keep our 16 year old twin boys engaged throughout. Our visit to the city would not have been the same without him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I'm so glad you enjoyed the tour, even if there was some adjusting to do with the bicycles. It's always inspiring to see the city through other eyes, like when you have teenagers on tour. I hope you enjoyed the rest of your stay here.
Robert ZweigSpring, TX, United States
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you. I really enjoy bicycling around the Copenhagen harbor this year, now that more bridges have opened up.
Robert HeathUnited States
Extremely comprehensive tour all walking which was the best way to experience this lovely city.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you. We truly covered a lot of territory on the tour, even getting to touch upon Edinburgh! You get around a lot in good company! Give my regards to all the group.
Katina ManneUnited States
Paul was an outstanding guide and provided us with a fabulous insight into the city of Copenhagen. He took us through side streets that allowed us a chance to feel how people of Denmark live. He was knowledgeable, full of energy and I would recommend him highly. An asset to Tours by Lical!!! Ten stars������
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much. I was a pleasure taking you through the city.
Our guide was very well prepared and experienced, met us at the agreed time and showed us aroung very well, providing much Information and also giving time for a break to catch an ice cream. We enjoyed seing the front side of Copenhagen but also the beautiful backyards, something that would not have been possible without his knowledge.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the nice afternoon!
Erwin WallUnited States
Complete tour of Copenhagen. Paul was knowledgable, patient and personally enjoyable to be with.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot! It was my pleasure too!
Joel BakerUnited States
We had a great tour with Paul. He is very knowledgeable about the city and history in general. He was very easy to work with and guided us around to many different sites and we did not see much that was not interesting. His task was a bit difficult with us as we arrived on December 23 and most things are closed for two days for Christmas, the 24th and 25th. But he did give us a great suggestion for the 24th and we took a train to the Fredericksbourg Castle.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi and thanks. I'm sorry the city was pretty much closing down as you got here. Paul.
Joshua Schwartz, PhDUnited States
Paul was wonderful. Knowledgeable, flexible and insightful. He listened to what we really wanted and created a bike tour that was perfect for us. We saw areas of Copenhagen we never would have seen on our own and learned a lot about each of these neighborhoods. He really went out of his way to make a memorable day and great start to our week in this beautiful city. Highly recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a very nice day, and also fun to go on the paths less travelled, as you were staying in town for some days, and had good time to also do the "must see" places at a separate time.
Michelle GordonPUTNAM VALLEY, NY YORK, United States
Really nice and managed our large group well
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much. t's a nice challenge to have families on tour, and make it possible to have everybody do their own things at times during the day! Enjoy your stay.
Sarah MusallamUnited States
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much. It's so giving to go "out of the way" and show the Denmark of smallholder farms and manor houses. An I got a tale to tell of people setting out from a very tight spot (12 children) and making good in the New World. The trophy museum at Valdemar's Castle was a nice find as well.
Paul is an absolutely outstanding Tour Guide. Intimately familiar with Copenhagen, had a very good plan of how to show us the interesting/important features, very knowledgeable of it and Denmark's history. Delightful to deal with. Excellent ability to communicate, making the tour very interesting. Whenever he sensed we were particulrly interested in any feature, he amended his tour to give us more of the part we were interested in. WE TOTALLY RECOMMEND HIM FOR ANY TOUR IN COPENHAGEN OR DENMARK HE OFFERS.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: So happy you liked the tour! And I liked it that you wantes to see more of this and that, poke in to stores etc- It helped shape the tour - including getting a Danish på the canal. It was fun for me as well.
Cindy PorubcanskyUnited States
Paul was very knowledgeable and articulate and he adapted the tour to our preferences. It was clear he knew quite a bit about the various sights in Copenhagen. We would take another tour with him if we were ever in Copenhagen again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you. It was a very nice tour though a bit muggy. It was nice that you enjoyed Copenhagen, and we could take it easy as well. Paul.
Dennis BeikmanUnited States
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I understand your regret that this is not a tour dealing almost exclusively with science and scientists. However it's made as a walking tour in the historical enviroment of old Copenhagen, and also deals with the time and the conditions that scientific discovery was made under.
Carole BlocherUnited States
Paul made our trip to Denmark one of the most memorable ever. We wanted to find family roots and he went above and beyond in doing research,finding a specialist in the remote area where the family lived, and making the trip special. His English was perfect with little or no accent. He made sure every detail went as planned and even beyond.We hope to find living relatives still in Denmark and would make another trip back again to meet them, with Paul's help to handle all the details! Thank you, Paul
Anne KolberUnited States
Paul was very pleasant and very knowledgeable about the city and it's history. I enjoyed our walking tour and would highly recommend him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Anne! Thanks for the feedback, and for a nice day. It was especially fine doing the tour, afther you had a day getting used to it.
Edward KleinUnited States
My wife and I had the pleasure of joining Paul on his well prepared "Jewish Experience tour". Paul did lots of preparation in creating this itinerary, including a private visit to the 19th century synagogue still in use, including a personal discussion with its current cantor. We also visited the Jewish museum and Paul supplemented the visits with valuable and interesting information about the history of the Jewish experience in Copenhagen. Paul was a knowledgeable, interested and interesting speaker.
Edward KleinUnited States
Our "Hans Christian Anderson tour" was individually created by the tour guide, Paul and us, and we ended up quite pleased with the result. Three of us went on the tour with Paul, which started in Copenhagen and went to Odense - the site of Anderson's house and the Hans Christian Anderson museum. Paul was a fantastic tour guide - his knowledge was matched with his enthusiasm for the subject - and everything was as promised. It was a wonderful experience and we would do it again in a heartbeat.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much, I'm glad you enjoyed it - I think we got to meet with mr. Andersen in underway. And thank you also for your observations and ideas on how a tour like this can be developed further.
Sondra EttlingerUnited States
Paul was very helpful with our diverse group. We were held up at lunch with very slow service and had to delete one venue for which we did not have time, but the group needed a rest and seemed satisfied. Paul was also very patient with the lunch bill which had to be divided among the four couples. He was quick to get us a taxi at the end when the bus was not on time and we returned to our ship on time. We particularly appreciated his knowledge of the Jewish sites and pacing of the tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you. It was a nice tour - with very interesting conversation too. A shame we were held up. I liked the original tour idea very much also. But of course you got to respect the group pace and the comfort of folks. Maybe I should have respected the pace of the restaurant staff a little less!
Sidney HowardUnited States
Paul was an excellant guide.
Lora GannUnited States
Paul was very informative! He was willing to organize his tour based on our interests and attention span. He even reached out to us after the tour to suggest other sites and opportunities he thought we would enjoy. thank you for sharing your lovely city with us.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: You're welcome! Glad you enjoyed Malmö too.
Carol WarrenUnited States
Hi Paul, I bring you greetings and a special Thank you from my Clients, Sue and Henry. they enjoyed their day with you and were very impressed that you were able to customized your tour to their needs and preferences. Carol Warren, Carol Warren Travel LLC, Norwalk, Ct 06850
Morris Fine85750, United States
Paul took us on an excellent walking-ferry tour. No car, but we didn't need one, The city is compact enough to walk or take a ferry over a longer distance. He imparted fascinating details about what we saw and added much personal background information that touched us deeply. We invited him to have lunch with us and enjoyed luscious forms of herring that we never would have tried. Paul talked all through our time together, which we really appreciate. We learned a lot throughout an active, fascinating day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much , I enjoyed the tour too - and "velbekomme" regarding the herring ("bon appetit" in Danish.
Lucille S.Northbrook, IL, United States
This was the only day it rained - it poured and we were drenched as Paul had no car, but we persevered. Paul was a good guide. He teaches guiding in the off season. We walked in the rain for 5 hours. The highlight was the Mitzvok Museum. Paul told great stories.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank's for that - it was fun dodging the rain, and I remember it at a good tour as well, thank you.
Ruben HaskelMontyevideo, Uruguay
Fue un tour bien armado, interesante porque incluyo relatos familiares respecto de la epoca del nazismo que ilustraron adecuadamente el clima vivido en aquella epoca, a lo que se agrega que Paul demostro gran capacidad para adaptar el programa a las necesidades y limitaciones de los participantes
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Gracias, fue un placer con el buen companía, y la conversación interesante el el Museo Mizvah - y de lograr hacer el encuetro con su pariente por el canal de Nyhavn por la tarde.
Good guide, not too fluent in the language (spanish) but very cooperative in helping us around and made the tour very interesting
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for a good day to you too. Especially I found the visit to Dragør village a very nice finish before going to the airport. Sorry to hear you found my Spanish lacking.
Ken ArleinUnited States
Paul has a great knowledge of history and will give you all of the names and dates. He loves to walk which was great for us but we like to hear stories about the people not only names and dates. This is a little harder to get from Paul. In the end we enjoyed our 2 days with him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much - it was a nice tour around in town. I'll keep it in mind to tell more stories, of which I know quite a few, it's just to ask.
William LeinsterNORTH CAROLINA, United States
As a walking tour guide, Paul is outstanding! Two of our three days with Paul involved extensive driving through the countryside, where the guiding was also excellent, but the driving was not as good as we expected. We would certainly want Paul as our guide again anytime he can focus on using his great knowledge, but does not have to drive.
Edward JenestAsheville, NC, United States
Paul is a knowledgeable guide and speaks very good English. We had a little over four hours with Paul and got a great overview of Copenhagen. If you are unable to walk at a quick pace then Paul may not be your guy. He was helpful with suggestions on how to spend the next two days in the city as well.
Steven SeegerUnited States
First morning in town we met Paul and he showed us Copenhagen! We walked, used the metro, took a water taxi and rode our bikes. He explained the growth, the changes, the culture. He put everything into context. Wow! The next two days were a delight as we found our way easily through Radhaus and the city to find the quiet cafes/squares/bars we had researched. We were able to move through the city with confidence, making the most of our time. Excellent value.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for good company - and for the reccomendation - I enjoyed the tour as well!
Joan PaschUnited States
we had a lovely entertaining and informative day! highly recommend
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much, I enjoyed the tour very much as well.
Richard WisemanUnited States
Paul was very knowledgeable and extremely helpful in our getting about. His knowledge of local history made the trip very meaningful. I highly recommend Paul as a guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot. It was a wonderful opportunity for me to go into the story of Denmark on the track of your family history, and to discover how well people take care of their heritage. A great bonus was to follow the winding country lanes in fine weather. Also thank you for the good company!
Jeff CrannellUnited States
Paul was great, energetic and knowleadgeable, just like having a family member along. He adjusted his tour to meet our needs. He gave us excellent tips for restaurants, musuems and other sites that we did not have time for with him. Excellent guide and we highly recommend him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, it was a lot of fun to show you Copenhagen on foot, and on two wheels!
Adrien 'Maida' RichlinUnited States
Paul was a very knowledgeable guide. He was kind and knew and shared all about the culture of the Danes as well as their relationship with the Jewish people - particularly during WWII. We truly enjoyed his company and appreciated the wonderful day we spent with him!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your good company and your energy, after a long flight in a sunny and breezy Copenhagen. I was much inspired by your observations also, about life here and in the US. All the best to both of you and your family!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: You're (always) welcome!
Vijay JainUnited States
4 Star- we had a great tour;
Joanne PasternackUnited States
Paul met us at the ship & began the tour with info about "Jewish Copenhagen & highlights of the city. He was informative but at times seemed a bit unsure about the route, perhaps this was the first time doing this tour. All 12 of us were very pleased with the tour. As a suggestion, Paul should walk a bit slower so we could talk to him & ask questions. Took us to Jewish Museum & ended at Tivoli Gardens. Made sure we had taxis to get us back to ship, clarified price for us.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your comments, and your advise! It's very helpful to improve the Jewish Copenhagen tour!
