Experience Copenhagen with no rush together with a local guide. I am a fan of slow travel and I want to give you plenty of time to immerse yourself in the experiences that I provide on my tours.

My name is Bente and I am born and raised in the Copenhagen area and have lived here most of my life, and I never stop exploring the city. Let me give you memorable experiences when visiting both the famous landmarks and the hidden gems - with no rush.

I am an authorized tourist guide and tour planner (educated at Roskilde University). Besides that, I have a master’s degree in Danish language and literature and have always been keen on telling good stories. I have done the storytelling when working as a writer, an editor, a lecturer, a teacher – and now I do it as a tourist guide. After my family, the good stories are the meaning of life to me, and I would love to share some of the good stories from the long Danish history with you.

I am bitten by the travel bug and travel as much as I can, and I enjoy doing it in a slow travel manner. That does not mean that I am inactive, it means that I take my time to see attractions and experience everyday life at the destination – and I try to keep my bucket list as short as possible.

What I like the most when I travel is to connect with a country’s culture and people. I strive to give you who visit Copenhagen that same intense experience.
