Hello there! I’m Lars, Guru in Copenhagen. I’m a 21-year-old history student, with a passion for history and culture. I love meeting and talking with new people from different cultures. I have lived in and near Copenhagen since I was five, so I know pretty much everything there is to know as a local. I know the popular cafés, restaurants, bars and fun places/activities there are in this city. I consider Copenhagen as one of Europe’s last hidden gems. It isn’t as shiny as Paris, London, or nearby Berlin, but yet it has such a special vibe and interesting history, which truly makes it worth a visit. Hopefully during my tour, you too will discover the beautiful and fascinating sides of Copenhagen. You can contact me on +45 21274629 Bonjour! Je suis Lars, Guru à Copenhague. Je suis un étudiant en histoire de 21 ans, passionné d'histoire et de culture. J'aime rencontrer et parler avec des nouvelles personnes de différentes cultures. Je vis à Copenhague et dans les environs depuis l'âge de cinq ans, donc je sais à peu près tout ce qu'il y a à savoir en tant que local. Je connais les cafés populaires, les restaurants, les bars et les lieux/activités amusants qu'il y a dans cette ville. Je considère Copenhague comme l'un des derniers joyaux cachés d'Europe. Copenhague n’est pas aussi brillant que Paris, Londres ou Berlin à proximité, mais pourtant il y’a une ambiance si spéciale et une histoire intéressante, ce qui en vaut vraiment la peine d’une vistie. J'espère que vous aussi découvrirez les côtés magnifiques et fascinants de Copenhague.

As requested by Lars, we arrived at the meeting point 10 minutes before the time agreed and waited another 15 minutes after with other people that had booked the tour. He didn't show up, nor answered our messages or calls (the number he provided to call him up wasn't reachable). Very disappointing experience. We wanted to learn more about the city while supporting young students, but after this bad experience we will just book tours with actual professionals.

Lars is very enthusiastic and knowledge about Copenhagen. He made the information entertaining. Walk turned in nearly 4 hours and we was pretty much all of Old Town Copenhagen.
