Special Copenhagen tour

While in Copenhagen, Aug. 2, 2007, we noticed in the throwaway monthly guide called What’s Going On a small mention of a walking tour entitled “Jews in Copenhagen.” We called the number and arranged to meet the guide, Gitta Bechshoft (phone [+45] 40 81 12 17 or visit www.copenhagen-walkingtours.dk), in 30 minutes.

Gitta is fluent in English, Hebrew and Danish. She lived for six years in Berkeley, California, and for a number of years in Israel. She is a certified guide but not a travel agent. She gives many tours, and the one we got — an introduction to the history of Jews in Copenhagen and Denmark — was outstanding.

Our group of four hired her for two hours at about $90 per hour.
