Copenhagen is one of the most historic and charming cities in the Baltic region and this tour gives you the opportunity to see it from two perspectives: by land and by water. Begin with a drive through the heart of Copenhagen. The Town Hall Square, which offers a lively combination of shopping, dining and people watching. Dominating the busy square is the Town Hall, an unusual combination of Italian Renaissance and Medieval Danish architecture, richly adorned with sculptures and paintings. Drive past the world-famous Tivoli Gardens, the New Carlsberg Glyptotek Museum (containing the largest collection of ancient art in Northern Europe). Stop for photos at Amalienborg Palace, the royal winter residence located on a spacious, octagonal Palace Square and comprising four separate, but linked mansions. One is the residence of the Queen; the second is the residence of the heir to the throne; the third accommodates visiting royals and the fourth houses the administrative offices of the throne.
Enjoy time at leisure to explore at your own pace, or relax at your hotel.
Hotel Alexandra (3*) is a beautiful hotel, full of tradition, situated right in the heart of Copenhagen by The Town Hall Square and The Tivoli Gardens. Although Hotel Alexandra is a modern hotel, you may still experience the old "Copenhagen Ambience" due to a considerate restoration.

Hotel Alexandra has a comfortable and functional lounge as well as a lovely and light restaurant with a well assorted breakfast buffet.
Discover the impressive castles around Copenhagen on a shared tour- departing Copenhagen, the coach travels up the riviera road to Hillerød. As you travel along there is a beautiful view upon the Øresund Strait with the Swedish coast beyond. In Hillerød you will experience the inside of the magnificent Frederiksborg Castle, where our visit includes the National History Museum´s royal art collection, the Chapel of Orders and the Knight´s Hall. From here the tour continues past the royal family´s summer residence Fredensborg Castle. After this the tour drives to Elsinore where we will make a photo stop for you to experience the outer walls and towers of impressive Kronborg Castle- setting of Shakespeare´s play Hamlet. The castle was build between 1574 and 1585 to protect Danish interests and to collect tolls from ships passing through the narrow strait. The tour is a great way of seeing the castles and countryside outside of Copenhagen.

"People do not know what they are missing by not going to Romania. The landscape: beautiful, clean, untouched. The people: People exceeded friendly! Super safe. Wherever we went, we received the reception of "Welcome, welcome! You are our guest", by everyone. Food & Drink: Everything had such incredible flavor! They use only the freshest ingredients and everything is organic. Every meal was a new, exciting experience to our palettes. Architecture: The beauty, intricacy, history. One cannot help but appreciate the abundance of castles, churches and buildings boasting such incredible architecture. Experience Romania sooner than later! You’ll be so glad you did! Once again, Kensington Tours, and special thank you to Claudia.

"Everyone involved in our Portugal trip made it terrific. Exactly as advertised. Every event on time and most pleasant. Guides were well-informed, courteous and friendly. Really made for a great journey every time. Each hotel was clean, upgraded and staffed with knowledgeable and friendly folks. Breakfasts were complete -- almost too much to eat. It will always be a wonderful memory thanks to Kensington Tours."

"Overall, our tour in Spain was very enjoyable, and well planned and executed. Our private tour of the Alhambra was excellent. Virginia, tour guide for royal palace ruins outside of Cordoba, was also excellent. In Seville, we went to the Flamenco Show/dinner, and the Flamenco was outstanding!"

"My husband and I took a 3 week vacation to southern Europe and North Africa and had a great time. All the guides were very knowledgeable and bend over backwards to accommodate us. The arrangement made by Kensington went off without a hitch. This is our second trip with Kensington (we went to Peru in 2009) and we will certainly book with them again."
