  • Copenhagen Tivoli Gardens Fast-Track Ticket & Optional Rides

    1. Copenhagen Tivoli Gardens Fast-Track Ticket & Optional Rides

Located in the heart of Copenhagen, this is truly an oasis in the city and one that you don’t want to miss!

    There was no line because it was a weekday but overall I think the price matched or bettered the price of buying everything from Tivoli itself which is nice since I was able to pay in my own currency. Tivoli is definitely worth the money and there are some very nice rides! I am a thrill seeker and I think it was enough to satisfy my roller coaster needs, maybe a 7.5/10 for thrill and speed if you really like thrill.

    Really great tour if you are trying to see a lot in one day. This tour takes you to 4 locations. Our guide was absolutely fantastic. It will feel a little rushed if you are someone who wants to really get into the weeds, then this may not be for you. However, I found the time at all locations to be adequate enough to appease my appetite. The only location where I found that a little more time may have been nice was the cathedral, but it was closing early that day. Overall, the price may seem a little high but the value is how much time you save and having direct transportation to and from the locations. (The bonus was the wonderful guide who answered all questions about Danish culture).
