Anders provided a great tour for our cruise group in May, 2018. He met us outside the terminal, and used his transit card. Reimbursing him after was easier as most of us did not have Danish kroner. We walked at a steady pace, about 5 miles total, seeing many of the best known locations in Copenhagen. He purchased advance tickets for the crown jewels exhibit in Rosenburg Palace. Anders gave us information on the buildings, history and government as we walked. His English is excellent, too.

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!

Anders did a wonderful job of showing us around Copenhagen as well as the countryside castles of Kronborg and Frederiksborg. We particularly enjoyed the lessons in Danish pronunciation. He was knowledgeable and professional. There was something of interest for my 71-year old father and my 10-year old daughter. We highly recommend Anders.

Dissapointing. We just walked, walked.... And walked, with very few explanation in a very poor Spanish. Great City with poor guide experience

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I'm sorry this was a disappointment for the family. In advance I told Josethat this tour was mainly walking and in the itinerary it states the distance: 5-7 km in 4 hours. I gave all the information that I usually do on a City Tour like this.I feel it is unfair to call my Spanish 'very poor'. The expectation was set that my level of Spanish was 'conversational'. (in accordance with the test I took at language school Studieskolen in Copenhagen).

Anders is the most professional guide that I as an Agent have ever met. From the beginning of the booking process, his service was flawless! He is timely, he is responsive to the clients and Agents needs and is 110% on top of his region and all of the historical places within his country, not just Copenhagen. Anders is a very kind hearted person who will assist you by taking photo's of your vacation to make the memories last for years to come. He is a 1 of a kind.

We enjoyed this tour (3 of us). It is a mix of walking and public transportation. There was more walking than we expected (16,000 steps), but Anders paced it well so that we could rest periodically. Copenhagen is a wonderful city and we saw it up close. We also learned a lot about the history of Denmark and the other Scandinavian countries. The Jewish Cultural Center was closed on the Monday that we were there so Anders took us to the Jewish cemetery which was interesting. We highly recommend Anders

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a pleasure doing this tour. For future travelers it should be mentioned about the distance (the 16.000 steps) that this was not my 4 hours walking tour to highlights of Copenhagen. This was a customized 6 hours walking tour, which explains the long distance.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: This was a tour done in Spanish. A couple of time in advance I told the traveler that my level of Spanish is conversational while my level in English is advanced. Maybe it was because of my Spanish the rating is only 3 stars?

We used public transportation which was great. Anders was prepared with knowledge about that and a good suggestion for a stop for drinks and snacks. He had a good estimation about how much time we should allow for different stops.

We enjoyed our tour with Anders who specially designed it for us but we wish he had warned us in advance of the need for cards with chips for buying train tickets or the option to buy reserved seats. We depended on him to set the itinerary based upon our request and found ourselves feeling constantly rushed to get everywhere we needed to be. The result was that the feel of the tour was harried which was unfortunate. he is a knowledgeable and lovely guy but the tour was too much to do in little time.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I enjoyed the tour with the group. We did a very unusualy 10 hours tour. Starting with a City Tour of Copenhagen, followed by a trip by train to city Odense where we visited the childhood home and the museum of writer H.C. Andersen. We should have bought reserved seats as Jul 13 was a Sunday and peak season of Danish summer holidays. My fault. Many americans experience problems with their cards without chip in Denmark. But we got the tickets. Apart from these problems I was satisfied with the tour.

Anders is a great tour guide. Very punctual - met us at the hotel at 0830 and then we did a wonderful extensive walking tour of Copenhagen. The weather was great and Anders was very knowledgeable. Always responsive to our many questions and gave us a clear view and history of the city. Since we were going to be in the area a few more days he pointed out areas that we could enjoy further during our stay in this beautiful city. We would certainly utilize his services and highly recommend him to others.

Anders was very responsive to the needs and interests of our group (6 couples). By the time Anders guided our group, we were at the end of the cruise and a bit tired. He adjusted the pace and tour route according to our requests. All in all, we enjoyed Copenhagen and Anders provided very good historical perspective and information. Would definitely use again if we were to return to Copenhagen.

Not personable....did not have answers to questions

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: After more than 50 tours this was the first time I received such a negative (and short) written feedback. It came as a big, unpleasant surprise, as I thought the tour went very well. Trying to understand what happened - and avoid it in the future - I twice tried to get the travelers to go into details about the complaints. But unfortunately I never got this clarification.

TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: We've spoken to the travelers about this review. They further clarified that they think Anders is a good guide, but they were expecting someone more outgoing.

Sites and commentary were good. Found his ability to adapt to change lacking.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: The agreement about the tour was to do it walking and making use of public transport. But after a few minutes Dennis Uthe wanted to rent a little, electrified car. I drew his attention to the fact, that I never had done a tour in a vehicle like that before, and that I never drive and guide at the same time. Dennis Uthe suggested that he did the driving. That was OK with me, and with did the tour in the vehicle. Very fun and interesting.

Anders was an excellent guide. He made our tour of Jewish Copenhagen very personal and was quite informative and a very, very nice person. He showed us more than we could ever see on our own and in addition, gave us a real local feel for the city of Copenhagen. We thorougly enjoyed our time with Anders and would highly recommend him to anyone who wants a wonderful experience.

While our group of 8 agreed that the tour was interesting, there was little commentary between stops on the tour. Generally, the guide provides additional information, comments or other information during the tour. This was most evident when we stopped by the canal and were told to walk up the street on our own to experience it. If all we were interested in doing was to walk a street and take in the atmosphere, we could do that on our own.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am glad that the 8 persons in the group agreed that the tour was interesting but of course disappointed that I seem to have missed the mark in balancing my commentary. There is a fine line between talking too much and too little and while the majority of my customer feedback testifies to my skill in this area, every group is different. I will certainly keep Madeline's comments in mind for the future and encourage my customers to let me know if they would like to hear more or less while on tour.

Anders took us on a walking tour of Copenhagen that started out on the waterfront. It was beautiful and Anders was filled with knowledge of Denmark. We incorporated 2 local bus transits to facilitate getting around and Anders saw to it that we got to see all the highlights. He was very fluent in English and did a great job.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I think it would be fair to add to the rating that this tour was a little bit special and complicated. In advance I didn't know that only one person in the group spoke English, and that this person had to translate everything I said to the rest of the group in Polish. The result was a slow and difficult course.
