Our tour guide was knowledgeable, friendly, helpful, and fun. We learned so much about the castle! The train ride was convenient and clean. If you want a lovely day out of the city, this is a great tour. If you like history, this is a great tour. Ask for Nicholas!

Hamlets Castle tour is great.

I had a private tour with Nacho from Copenhagen to Elsinore by train. The day was perfect and Nacho was the best guide. He was very knowledgeable and so nice. When we got to the castle, just a short walk from the train, a production of Hamlet was going on in different rooms. It was really fun. Great tour.

The guide without energy and almost zero knowledge, he was just a driver !!! Paid a lot for just a drive.
