The guide was very friendly and excellent at explaining Denmark's history. He made pleasant conversations with all of us and made sure we were all comfortable. I really enjoyed myself and found it very easy to absorb what he was telling us, so I learned a lot from this experience. It was an amazing introduction to Denmark. Thank you
