Description

We'll begin this lovely day by exploring downtown Copenhagen and passing by Copenhagen's classic monuments, as well as various Jewish points of interest. Go by the University, Danish Parliament, Christiansborg Palace, Danish Jewish Museum (designed by Daniel Libeskind in 2004), the Round Tower, the Latin Quarter, the Cathedral of Copenhagen, the Old Jewish Quarter, and the Copenhagen Synagogue.

We'll also see the Royal Palace, Amalienborg, Nyhavn Canal, Gefion Fountain, the Little Mermaid statue, the Pedestrian Street (main shopping area), and much more!

After the walking portion of the tour, we'll head out to the little fishing village of Dragor, where the guide will share their personal story about their family and the incredible rescue of more than 7,000 Danish Jews during World War II.

It was actually brave fishermen that helped more than 95% of the Jewish population in Denmark to safety in Sweden. Many Jews escaped from Dragor on small boats, including the fishing boat Elisabeth, that you can visit today.

Today, Dragor is a charming village with old half-timbered houses, cozy cafes, and restaurants. Only 10 miles from downtown Copenhagen, your visit to Dragor will not only evoke the past, but also give you an interesting and unique look into contemporary life in small Danish villages.

During our tour of Dragor, we'll take a coffee break in one of the little village’s many lovely cafes.

In Cozumel we enjoyed the snorkeling that we did off a catamaran. The staff was friendly, very professional, and helpful with my first time snorkeling daughter. Grand Cayman we went to sting ray city with a trip and snorkeling. Staff and trip was amazing, crew very helpful and fun. in Jamaica we did a Dunn's River Falls excursion and private beach. We had fun but were not impressed with the staff, and their timeliness (waited around alot),

Traveling into Russia can be nerve-wracking (and getting more so every day) -- but ShoreTrips made it easy by providing all of the paperwork and instructions, as well as organizing good guides.
