Wonderful 1/2 day tour

Nicolas was a fantastic, informative guide and this was one of the highlights of our trip. He was very clearly very experienced, knowledgeable, and helpful with other recommendations for our stay.

Thank you very much Tracy. It has been such an amazing opportunity to have had the chance to show your family around. I wish you a great day
Ask for Nicholas no matter what!

We actually changed it up and went to Fredericksburg Castle instead, which was way more fun for a family style tour. Nicholas was amazing so ask for him regardless of going to Hamlet or Fredericksburg...or BOTH!

Hamlet castle
, Aug 2019
We purchased a private tour to be picked up by vehicle from our hotel as my husband was unable to walk any distances. The tour guide picked us up at the hotel we had to walk to the train station to go to the castle. My husband did not go as he could not walk the distance. Tried to get his ticket price refunded was told it could not be done. Tour was not as promised. On the way back the tour guide took us back to the train station and then left my granddaughter and myself there to find our way back to the hotel on our own. This was also not as promised. We were to be picked up and dropped off at the hotel as we were in a foreign country Very disappointed !!

We are very sorry to hear that you did not have a good time with us. However, you should have read all the information before buying your tour, because we do not offer a vehicle to go to the castle at all - it is stated that it is by train. On top of that, I am glad that we are able to reply to your message so it does not seem that we are the bad guys here. My tour guide said that you did not want to go back to the city with him and your granddaughter was rather interested in having wi-fi for her phone than seeing the castle! Anyways, that’s not our problem. I wish you a good day and again sorry that the was not what you expected.

Bruno is an extraordinary guide, very friendly and communicative, great person to talk to, demonstrated a lot of knowledge of the places and of breaking gave me excellent tips. On the routes between one tour and another he still told me several things about life in Denmark. Excelent, I recommend.

This excursion was a highlight of our holiday. Nickolas our guide was amazing. He met us promptly at central railway station and was eager to give us a great day. When he found out we had some personal family history at the castle, he went well beyond his duties to assist us research further details of our family history in the area. He even sourced the local cemetery to find our ancestor's grave site. The castle was amazing and the town of Elsinor is an excellent example of typical Danish town, unlike Copenhagen itself. We highly recommend this private tour. We were treated like VIP's all day.

Tour bien organisé mais peu de Hamlet
, Apr 2022
Guide très sympa et avenant. Visite guidée très bien organisée. Le temps était aussi de la partie (ciel bleu comme en Provence), donc j'ai passé un bon moment. On n'y trouve pas vraiment des informations ou des éléments autour d'Hamlet, son histoire, sa génèse. Le château aurait pu miser sur cela pour dédier une salle racontant cette légende et ce que Shakespeare en a fait, peut-être même des photos d'interprètes ou de mises en scène légendaires. Cela valoriserait davantage le déplacement.

Dear Arthur. Merci a vous! I had an amazing time with you and will remember for a long time this experience. I wish you a good day and I look forward to meeting you on day in Switzerland.

Bruno foi extremamente atencioso. Sabe muito sobre Hamlet. Ainda nos deu dicas de como ir para outro castelo, todo trajeto e como retornar para Copenhaguem. Muito bom mesmo.
