"Excellent tour! Bente was my guide and I learned so much from her! She gave me a personal tour of the Danish Jewish Museum, encouraging me to ask any questions as they arise. She shared her personal story of her grandparents & parents escape. In the fishing town, we were able to see the very boat that rescued her grandparents. This was an extremely informative tour. As a teacher of the Holocaust.
"This was a fabulous tour. Our tour guide was Roger Kormind. Roger is not only a fountain of information, he is warm and friendly. He gave us a real view of what Jewish, as well as, secular life in Copenhagen is and had been in the past. Thank You Roger for exceeding our expectations!"
"This tour was wonderful. After reading reviews we had high expectations and they were exceeded. Charlotte's personal accounts made the experience outstanding.I would recommend this to anyone, Jewish or not, as it provided such important insight into the history and culture of the Danish people".
"This was an incredibly insightful and personal overview of the Danish Jewish community back to the 1600's, with a focus on the rescue of the Danish Jews during WWII. We really enjoyed the trip seeing the inside of the synagogue and community center, as well as going to the fishing village where many Jews boarded small boats for Sweden in 1943".
"Our family found this tour extremely informative and fun. Bente was a very good tour guide and was able to tell the story of Jewish Copenhagen over several hours that kept us fully engaged. Her ability to weave in the experiences of her own family made the history come alive. Really enjoyed the additional car trip to Dragor as well".
"The entire tour was excellent. Charlotte has an excellent knowledge of Danish Jewish history as well as a willingness to share her family’s personal stories. We felt that the visit to the Danish Resistance Museum was very valuable. The highlight was visiting the synagogue and learning about the history and current status of the Copenhagen Jewish community."
