My 14 year old son and I had a fabulous trip with Henrik Garff. He was so knowledgeable and did a great job giving us the history of all the sites. We were so grateful to have found such a good guide. Excellent service!

I only had a few short days in Copenhagen, and this tour was one of the highlights. Harry was a fantastic guide and a wealth of information about Denmark and the sites, but also told Viking stories during some of the longer stretches of driving. Thank you!

The tour was great (so is our tour guide who was very professional and knowledgeable). It helps when you are on a short schedule as you can go to a few landmarks in a day.

Great City-Bad Tour
, Nov 2019
In my opinion the mini bus was too crowded. We were sitting on each others laps. Tour guide, in my opinion, was terrible. He raced up ahead and did not wait for the balance of the group to catch up and hear what he was saying. He did not have a microphone system. A total waist of my money!

Dear 834Fred, Thank you for your time, writing us a review. Even though you rated us 1 star. Can I get you to write me an email on, we really want to see how we can find a solution for you. I also want to make it clear, that we aim for a 5-star experience, and I am very sorry to read, that we did not succeed. The minivan is actually made for 19 people, and we have actually removed 1 row of seats, to make the minivan even more spacious and luxurious. We would not have anyone sitting on each other laps, why the maximum of people in a group is 16 people, but we are often less. Please come back to me on email, so we are able to learn from our mistakes, and improve our tour to be even better. Kind regards Naiwai Hamlet Tours

This was one of the best day-trips I've ever made and it was the driver/guide, Bengi, who made it so. His friendly, courteous, humourous and easy-going personality is what every tour operator wants in their employees. He went well beyond the call of duty to ensure we had a wonderful day. We learned so much Danish history from him. Thanks a million. Flannan

Dear Flannan, Thank you for your lovely review. It sounds like you have had an amazing tour with Bengi and we are happy that you want to share your experience. I will pass on the kind words to Bengi and I hope he has inspired you to come back to wonderful Copenhagen someday. Kind regards, Amalie Hammer Hamlet Tours

This is a great 1 day tour, highly recommended for those who like to explore about Denmark history and architecture. Jeppe was a great tour guide. He is so knowledgeable about history. I felt bad because I didn't prepare some cash to tip him.

Dear Thuy D, Thank you for your kind review and we are very happy to hear that you had a good day. Don´t worry about the tip, we are just happy to hear that it was a good day for you. Have a nice day! Kind regards Jeppe Faergemann Hamlet Tours
