What to Expect
Begin your tour at your hotel in central Copenhagen or the designated departure point across from City Hall. Head out of the city with your small group to visit four grand sites. See Kronborg Castle, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that fortified the entrance to the Baltic Sea for six centuries. Learn about the castle’s royal history, and how it is tied to Shakespeare’s play, Hamlet. Visit Frederiksborg Palace, the largest Renaissance castle in Scandinavia. Move to Roskilde Cathedral, burial spot for numerous Danish kings and queens. Tours between November and March don’t have access to the cathedral interior; visitors will take narrated walk around the structure's exterior instead. Head back to Copenhagen, passing Danish countryside, for a visit to the Viking Ship Museum. Learn how the Vikings built their ships and ruled the North Atlantic. Finish the tour at your original departure point.

Excellent trip. Comfortable vehicle, knowledgeable guide and easy paced. The attractions were definitely worth seeing although Kronborg Slot after seeing Frederiksborg Castle could have been a shorter visit. Small group made it much more enjoyable.
