Hamlet Tours specializes in guided sightseeing tours in and around Copenhagen. Our tours run most days from February to December and you can sign up as an individual or a group or you can book a private tour. We prefer small groups so our standard tours never have more than 16 people in them.
Our guides are all locals from Copenhagen. We range from a member of the Danish Parliament and a count to history students and many other interesting personalities. What we have in common is that we know what we are talking about, speak almost perfect English and always do our very best to make you feel comfortable on the tour.
During the quieter winter months we also offer transportation service by minibus. Booking may be done through the page Copenhagen Minibus (Danish) or from this page.
We have been running since 2012 and today we are thirteen people employed in the company.
