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.
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.

"Melissa Field was extremely helpful! She was courteous, professional, knowledgeable, and friendly! She kept me updated on the status of everything and provided timely correspondence. She took ownership for any problems I had and remedied them. I had the most amazing time of my life in Iceland and Paris! I would not have experienced everything without the help of Kensington Tours."

"All of our guides were beyond fabulous! Our time in Dublin was much too short, would have loved to stay there at least one more full day. Would recommend extending this package to 15 days for any future visits. The train to Edinburgh was super! Beautiful scenery and great steak pies!"

"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 bent over backwards to accommodate us. The arrangements 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."

"Thank you for your follow up, we both loved our time in Croatia. It’s really a beautiful place, especially the coast. Your choice of hotels was great. It was an incredible view from the Bellevue hotel in Dubrovnik and the Vestibule in Split was in the best possible location. We were able to relax in our room listening to the wonderful singers in the courtyard and its central location made it so easy to walk anywhere we wanted to see with ease. "

"We just returned from a 10 day trip to Paris and Normandy. We spent three nights in Paris and then enjoyed a seven night cruise on the Seine to Normandy with AMA Waterways. The time in Paris was well spent and has piqued our interest to return for a more thorough visit. Guide Wafaa Lankey was superb in our visit to Versailles. The Seine cruise was relaxing and beautiful. So many wonderful little towns and we wished we had more time in each one to explore and enjoy.
We traveled to Croatia and Slovenia using Kensington earlier this year which was a fantastic trip."
