Day Tours in Copenhagen with Hamlet Tours

Day tours in Copenhagen with Hamlet Tours

Hamlet Tours runs day tours in Copenhagen and the surrounding area. We specialize in the world famous historical sites such as Kronborg Castle (Hamlet’s Castle), Roskilde Cathedral and others that you simply can not miss if you are in Copenhagen.

Go with us on the GRAND INNER CITY TOUR if it is your first time in Copenhagen and you want to see the city itself. Or go on the GRAND DAY TRIP AROUND COPENHAGEN if you want to get out of the city to see The Viking Ship Museum and UNESCO World Heritage sites such as Kronborg Castle (Hamlet’s Castle) and Roskilde Cathedral.

We have better customer reviews than any other bus tours in Copenhagen. Our all-time average on TripAdvisor is 4.9 out of 5.

Our tour groups never have more than 16 people in them. Usually less. This makes our tours a lot faster and more personal than other tours.

Our busses are new and luxurious and we offer a door-to-door service picking you up and dropping you off at your hotel in (inner) Copenhagen.

All tours are guaranteed to run even if there is only one person booked. We do not cancel tours.

Our guides

Our guides are dedicated and well educated locals speaking almost perfect English. We promise that they will be easy to understand and they will tell you all that is worth knowing about Denmark and Copenhagen. All of them have very interesting backgrounds. One is a writer. Another is a member of the Danish parliament. Some are young history students.


  • “Visit with the Happist country in the world”

    Let me start off by saying, I had the most gorgeous weather in Copenhagen and everyone here seems incredibly intelligent and fit ( bikes everywhere) I was picked up (with my elderly Mom) right on time, gorgeous Mercedes van which was spotless and had USB ports for charging devices) Our guide was a young lady named Margaret. For one so young, she was so incredibly smart, full of information and a great driver (it didn’t seem easy to navigate walkers, bikers and other drivers!!) First stop was Cathederal with long standing tradition of Kings and Queens being buried here (side note: I didn’t think I would enjoy this place as much as I did) then next on to the Viking ship museum AND finally on to our two castles. No spoilers (they were both beautiful).
    It is an extremely long day, but based on the prices of Denmark this tour is priced extremely well and you see so so much! A must do .

    Only 16 people on the tour, excellent guide…knew exactly where we should stand to watch the re-enactment of the play Hamlet once we were in the castle….you visit 2 other castles, a Viking ship museum and a fabulous church were all the Danish royalty is buried. So much easier than driving yourself around

  • “A long weekend exploring Copenhagen”

    19th June 2019

    A long weekend exploring Copenhagen with my husband and friends. On Sunday, June 16th, we had a remarkable Grand Inner City Tour with Hamlet Tours. Our guide, Margaret, an archaeologist herself, proved to be an exceptional hostess. She had an excellent knowledge of the past and present day Denmark. Kind and highly qualified, she managed to make us want to go back! Excellent!

  • “Tour was fantastic. Guide was very knowledgeable about the city. Henrick was a great historian.”

    If you want to see the highlights of the city this is the tour you should choose. This tour took us to places we probably would not have found. The Viking Museum was great. You appreciate history after seeing all there is to see in this city.

    Our guide Henri was fantastic. He has such a vast knowledge of Denmark’s history and was happy to not only share but answer questions about different topics. The Viking Ship Museum was my favorite part of the tour, unfortunately, we did not have more time to spend there! While you don’t need hiking gear, make sure you wear comfortable shoes, as you do walk a bit (which was fantastic). Thank you Henri, and thank you Hamlet Tours, for an amazing day!

  • “A+ Castle Tour”

    We booked this tour hoping to see some of the castles outside of Copenhagen. Our guide Henrik arrived at our hotel right on time for pick up and was an absolute gentleman. He was a fantastic tour guide, providing information about all of the locations we visited as well as the history of the places we passed along the way. Henrik was full of knowledge and was truly passionate about all parts of the tour. He went the extra mile to make sure we saw everything that the tour had to offer. The tour in December indicated that we would walk around the Roskilde Cathedral but could not see the inside. Henrik was able to get us inside to catch a quick glimpse of the beautiful interior. The “bus” was a nice, comfortable Mercedes-Benz with charging ports and free Wi-Fi! This tour was truly memorable and an absolute must do.

  • “Grand Trip Around Copenhagen – perfect day trip to the castle further out of the city!”

    I booked the Grand Trip Around Copenhagen and thoroughly enjoyed every bit of it. The booking process was really efficient, and they were great at updating us on timing amendments (with regards to when they’ll be picking us up from the hotel).
    Our guide Robert was fantastic too: while driving to each spot he’d be telling us information and the history on the places we were heading to and also about Denmark in general.
    We were taken around to Roskilde cathedral, the Viking Ship Museum, Frederiksborg castle and Kronborg castle, all of which are places I’d recommend you go and see on a trip to Copenhagen. So this tour is an excellent package: you see all these places, and all in one day!

Private Tours, Transfers and Bus rental

Our two tours can also be bought as private tours with nobody else in the group but you. In that case the programme for the tours can be adjusted in any way you want. If you need transportation in a luxury minibus for a completely different purpose than sightseeing we are also available for that
