Our copenhagen started with cold misty n fog but Sara warmed it up instantly with stories full of history and wit!!!! She and Nils were really friendly and did their best to orientate us in this cool city .... highly recommended - see u guys in summer!.”


Sara was our tour guide in Copenhagen, she introduced us to the city and showed us how beautiful Copenhagen is. During the 4 hour walk we stopped at the palace and learned about Royal family, visited university, some historic churches, learned about history of Jewish community in Denmark and other sites (sorry, little Mermaid was not on our agenda). Sara took us to the hidden spots which we otherwise would miss, gave us great recommendations for our stay in the city. We absolutely enjoyed the tour and the city. We want to come back!
