The tour was fantastic! Libby was such a great tour guide and ensured everyone in the tour was included. We even got lucky and saw the queen’s horses. We also explored lanes and places that we would’ve otherwise missed if travelling without a guide. Overall really recommend if you’re one to enjoy tours that immerse you into local culture instead of exploring tourist spots.

Lucy was an excellent tour guide. She contacted us the night before to make sure we were all set and gave us a very detailed explanation as to where we would meet. Her knowledge was exceptional and we had a fabulous walk with her. She is quite the royal expert! She is very lovely and wonderful to chat with. Highly recommend.

Such a great way to see Copenhagen! Really enthusiastic and knowledgable tour guide. Loved seeing the ‘Freetown’ part and just generally cycling round Copenhagen was brilliant. Highly recommend!

The bike tour was great. Our guide was really informed with an added wonderful sense of humor. Very proud of his country.

Great tour. Easy paced, funny guide, nice way to get an initial flavour of the city.
