The drive to the castle just took an hour and we really enjoyed it. The castle was beautiful and the information provided was excellent. The tour guide was funny and shared a lot of information about life in Germany. We were on a Baltic cruise and decided we didn't want to take the Berlin excursion because of the amount of driving required. This was a great alternative! We arrived back by 2:00pm and still had time to go to the seaport village and explore.
Beware of the time your ship arrives in port before booking this tour. It takes some time to get to the meeting place. We missed the tour but took an expensive cab ride to catch up. The tour company was awesome trying to connect and we ended up having a wonderful time. Would have liked more time at Frederiksborg castle, but overall just wonderful.
Very knowledgable tour guide, interesting castles to discover, time well spent.
