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.

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!

Excellent guide and very helpful and giving information about the history of the Castle and about Denmark as a whole.

Joachim was very knowledgable and pleasant. He made the experience very enjoyable

Bruno made our tour so interesting and fun. A really great day!
