About the tour

Something rotten in the Kingdom of Denmark? Well, not really these days but beneath the Danish history, there’s plenty of skeletons in the cupboard and the distinct whiff of pickled fish in the air! Join our guide, Heather, as she reveals 900 years of Scandinavian skulduggery, smoking, stones, scandals, fires, and pirates. What’s more, you’ll also get to try one of the world’s best beer at the site of the first settlement in Copenhagen and the present-day Danish parliament. On this virtual tour, Heather will take you around Copenhagen and you get to peek into the Viking era. If you’re lucky, you might spot the stunning Christiansborg Palace, surrounded by beautiful botanical gardens and art museums. Prepare for some time traveling, and don’t expect to return to the 21st century without laughing a lot.

A fine afternoon full of facts and figures, the dates of Danish Kings and Queens essential as they all have the same names. Don’t know why people book up and the moan, difficult to get all the information in half an hour, and sitting in a warm room remember the temp is round 2* Having watched two or three of these Copenhagen takes shape .

So much history and information about pirates and the palaces. The images of the parliament building and others were awe-inspiring. A good solid tour overall.
