Hi everyone! I just updated an older post, but it looks like it may have disappeared so I am re-posting. I really appreciate all help!
My parents are 75 and going to EU for the first time on a Baltic Cruise. I have travelled a lot and love to plan so I am helping them out. They are arriving in Copenhagan on Saturday August 27. They are staying at the Ascot Hotel near Tivoli Gardens - not my choice, but it is already booked.
I assume on Saturday they will arrive at their hotel, take a walk around and go to dinner near their hotel (recommendations welcome : )! )
Sunday they will have the whole day - their cruise leaves on Monday. I am trying to figure out what they should do. They have no major budget restrictions, they can walk well, but can't walk for hours, my mom has knee problems and will need to sit periodically for some time, etc. It needs to be leisurely. That said, do you think they should do the Rick Steve's Walking Tour so that they can move at their own pace and feel like they are seeing the city. Or should they do a hop on/hop off bus? The only issue I have with that is that I feel like you are ticking sites off your list without immersing yourself in the city and getting a real feel for it. Is a guide best?
Let me know what you would recommend!!!! Thank you!!!
