Hi there, I just wanted to say thank you for the lovely tour last Sunday around Copenhagen, Lund, Malmo and back to Copenhagen. I have never taken such a tour before and you cannot fault the excellent experience from start to finish. Everything was handled professionally, well organised, informative but not over the top and you really felt that you were in good hands throughout. We were looked after during the day by a friendly and approachable Gentleman of a guide and an equally helpful and polite coach driver. Indeed if Carlsberg made tour guides, he would probably be the best in the world. Thank you!

Wonderful tour to have an overview of the places visited and our driver/tour guide was following the exact description given on company’s website . We hit bad traffic , but , time given for sightseeing in each place wasn’t compromised. We were parked at the convenient locations in all 3 places . I would suggest mark a few places u want to see the most and have your own plan ahead of the tour . I opted out to see old town Helsingor vs going to see the Hamlet’s castle . Lund has a great Open Air Museum and Lund University grounds. Definitely recommend this tour !

Had a lovely excursion to Lund & Malmö: Guided Tour. Our guide went above and beyond to ensure we got to our destination on time as well as shared interesting details about Denmark and our destination locations. Made the experience enjoyable and fun! Highly recommend this tour with Mario!!

Tour was about the right length with 3 1.5 hour stops in each location. Free water on board was a nice touch. Extra commentary from Mario was useful. Experiencing the ferry and the road bridge was good. A well put together trip.

It is a serious company. The service is excellent. The very friendly guide
