1. Lund & Malmö: Guided Tour of 2 Countries in One Day

Start your day of adventure in front of the Grand Hotel, here you will meet your friendly and informative guide. After a short meet and greet you will hop aboard your comfortable vehicle and set off on your adventure.  Commence your tour with a visit to Hamlet's Castle, one of the most famous tourist landmarks in this area. Shortly after this take a scenic drive down the coastal road of Strandvejen and arrive in the charming old town of Helsingør, known as Elsinor in English. Whilst in Elsinor you will be given time to peruse the fascinating streets of this beautiful city before boarding a boat to head to Sweden.  Aboard your boat, you will sail across the Øresund, travelling to the shores of Sweden. Once you arrive in Sweden you will drive down the picturesque country roads to the ancient city of Lund. Here you can visit the Lund Cathedral, a church built in 1145. Behind the Cathedral there is the chance to explore the tiny streets, with houses that date back to the 1700s! Follow this with a trip to Malmö, Sweden's third largest city. Here you will have some time to do some shopping and take advantage of Sweden's lower purchase taxes, making this a great place to get some fantastic low prices on goods to take home with you. End your tour back in Copenhagen, en-route you will pass the impressive Øresund Bridge - taking in the beautiful views whilst you do.

Make your way to Lund, a city so old it dates at least until the Viking Age. Discover Lund Cathedral, whose construction was finished in 1145, and explore the tiny, cobblestoned streets surrounding it. Then, travel back down south to Malmö, and decide how you will spend your time. Find your bearings with your guide in the biggest square in Malmö, Stortorget, which appropriately means Big Square. Dine in a selection of Malmö's most popular restaurants in Lilletorget, or Little Square, located just behind Stortoget. Enjoy the Parisian feel, and see some historic buildings and a vintage telephone box. Or, head towards the north-west side of Stortoget to reach Sodergatan, Malmö's main shopping street and pedestrian walkway. Shop in the department store, Ahlens, or in many other quality clothing shops. Check out Stora Nygatan at the far end of Sodergatan too, as here you'll find the Hansa shopping mall. If culture is more your thing, take your pick from a selection of museums. Get a feel for the contemporary at Malmö Modern Art Museum, or dive into history at the Malmö Natural History Museum. The latter is located at Malmöhus Castle, which dates from the Renaissance and is also host to the Malmö Art Museum, whose collection spans the 16th to 20th centuries. Finally, marvel at the Turning Torso in Malmö, the tallest building in Scandinavia, before returning to Copenhagen. Please note that it is not possible to enter the Turning Torso, and entrance to the museums in Malmö is not included in the tour.  Tours take place on Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays.

Hi there, I just wanted to say thank you for the lovely tour last Sunday around Copenhagen, Lund, Malmo and back to Copenhagen. I have never taken such a tour before and you cannot fault the excellent experience from start to finish. Everything was handled professionally, well organised, informative but not over the top and you really felt that you were in good hands throughout. We were looked after during the day by a friendly and approachable Gentleman of a guide and an equally helpful and polite coach driver. Indeed if Carlsberg made tour guides, he would probably be the best in the world. Thank you!

Wonderful tour to have an overview of the places visited and our driver/tour guide was following the exact description given on company’s website . We hit bad traffic , but , time given for sightseeing in each place wasn’t compromised. We were parked at the convenient locations in all 3 places . I would suggest mark a few places u want to see the most and have your own plan ahead of the tour . I opted out to see old town Helsingor vs going to see the Hamlet’s castle . Lund has a great Open Air Museum and Lund University grounds. Definitely recommend this tour !

Had a lovely excursion to Lund & Malmö: Guided Tour. Our guide went above and beyond to ensure we got to our destination on time as well as shared interesting details about Denmark and our destination locations. Made the experience enjoyable and fun! Highly recommend this tour with Mario!!

Tour was about the right length with 3 1.5 hour stops in each location. Free water on board was a nice touch. Extra commentary from Mario was useful. Experiencing the ferry and the road bridge was good. A well put together trip.

It is a serious company. The service is excellent. The very friendly guide
