Coach parking Tivoli Copenhagen , H. C. Andersens Blvd. 26, 1553 København, Denmark

The starting point is a parking area for tour busses by the back of Tivoli Gardens right across the street from Copenhagen City Hall (Rådhuset). If you have any problems finding the pick-up point please feel free to call the local operator, Hamlet Tours, for directions at +4530700667.

Hmm...we can’t seem to find this place. Please check the spelling, or choose another location.

This activity will end right where it started.We offer a hotel pickup from most hotels in the centre of Copenhagen. We will pick you up 30-50 minutes before the tour starts. You will receive an e-mail with the exact pickup time at least 24 hours prior to the tour. We do NOT go to hotels outside the city center. This includes hotels near the airport such as Crowne Plaza and AC Bella Sky and hotels in the Nordhavn area such as Adina Apartments. Certain hotels which are located within a few minutes' walk of the starting point are also not included because you would spend a lot more time getting picked up and then driven around to other pick ups rather than just walk a few minutes directly to the starting point of the tour if you are staying right next to it. You are very welcome to contact us to inquire about specific hotels. Your bus for the day is a plain white mini-bus. If you have any doubts regarding your pickup please feel free to call the tour operator, Hamlet Tours, at +4530700667. PLEASE NOTE: The tour will involve a lot of walking and steep stairs.

There was so much to see and we were forever on time restraints. And then the must important thing we wanted to see - the Viking boat museum we had 15 minutes. because museum was closing. Disappointing

The good things are: 1. the tour guide robert was very nice. 2. the car was very nice and well equiped. However, there are two things that we were not satisfied with are: 1. the pickup time is early and it was only informed by email, which was hard to keep an eye during the vacation, the notification should be done by phone call or at least text, and because of the early pickup, we didnt have time for breakfast and the entire schedule was delayed 15mins; 2. the time for each tour site was not enough. two castles and the viking place needed more time. A little recommendation: 1. about the history of denmark, such as three dynasties, rivals with other countries, rumors of those kings, could be depicited on the way there. 2. could add some local traditions explainations or teach some easy danish words such as hello and thank you to give us more immersive experience.

What amazing castles we visited. Our guide Thomas was excellent and our driver Frank was so knowledgeable he to could have been our tour guide. They both were a great team and provided great information that made the castles history come alive. We would have never gotten a full understanding and appreciation about Denmark if we didn’t take this tour. Thanks again Thomas and Frank.

We enjoyed tne tour very much. Our guide explained a lot about the history of Danmark and about what we see on our way. Did a lot of explaining in the church and on Hamlets Casle. We were a little bit in a hurry at the Vikings museum and missed some time there.

If you are in Copenhagen and you love history, then this tour is a must!

If you are in Copenhagen and you love history, then this tour is a must! Get out the city and explore the castles and churches and learn about the history and how Denmark was important to the world. The 1000 year old city is a must-see for anyone with an interest in history, architecture and Vikings, but with only a few days in Copenhagen you have to be careful with what you do with your time. I picked correctly and this day tour was one of the highlights of the whole trip. You are taken care of with an amazing, knowledgeable guide, a comfortable bus and a well timed tour with insightful information on the way. You will be able to sneak in some naps between some stops.
