What People Are Saying About Copenhagen

Start your Copenhagen travel with this tour!

I think this is a must-do activity if you are visiting Copenhagen. This tour shows you most of the tourist spots, and the audio guide was very informative. I was very satisfied and thought I got more from the tour than I paid for. Take this tour first, and then choose the spots you want to see most. I would recommend this to my friends.

Great way to get a first look at Copenhagen

Great tour and staff. Karla was a funny and knowledgeable guide (perfect English and German) and - even though I had forgotten to print my voucher - they allowed me to take the tour anyways. I enjoyed having the chance to see the city from the water. I just hope they start accepting mobile vouchers soon :)

Christiania Alternative Tour Reviewed by Jiyeon, 10/01/2016

wonderful experience with a great guide, who also sang for us!

Me and my friends reached the place with no difficulties, and showed our paper ticket in order to receive an italian guide. The tour was fantastic, we travelled all along the main canal with a delightful and young guide. when we went under a little wooden bridge she sang for us "Amazing grace". It was magic!
