This was a four hour walking trip which made us groan when we found this out, but the time just flew by and we had quite a few stops sampling the most delicious foods and drinks. Our guide was very knowedgeable and the waking was as a reasonable pace. Along the way, as well as sampling lots of wonderful Copenhagen cuisine, we visited various local historical landmarks and our guide was able to tell us all about these. This was an interesting and gastronomically delightful tour. The only food item was were not able to digest was the pickled herring. I think you have to be raised on this one to enjoy it! Everything else was delicious.
This was a winner from start to finish. Our guide, Maria, met us at a covered food market and we started our tasting and learning right there with three local cheeses and then a mix of items from one small isand: mustard, rhubarb jam, spelt crackers, licorice and aquavit (40% alcohol -- that kick-starts your day!) As we walked, Maria gave us not just local history, but a lot of local color. Best food stops for me: Naamans for gems of open-faced sandwiches, the microbrewery and the all-organic hot-dog stand. This was a delightful way to tour the city.
Interesting and quirky selection of food. Great value and all in all a hygge experience. My only regret was that the jar of Bornholm mustard I bought on the tour was confiscated by airport security after I made the rookie error of putting it in my hand luggage for safe keeping, thinking it was neither a liquid or a gel.
Fantastic! Maria was just excellent! Very knowledgeable and funny! Highly recommend this beautiful tour!

We did this tour on our first day in Copenhagen so it was perfect to get a feel of the city as well as eat good food. Our guide Maria gave us a lot of historic information about the city and good recommendations on where to go. Very highly recommended.
We traveled Scandinavia and St Petersburg, Maria's tour of Copenhagen was outstanding!
Really worth it! The people who run it are really nice, and the tour is sufficiently long for you to get to try lots of different things without feeling like you are combining the incompatible. (And you do try lots of things - from mustard to cheese to beer to smorrebrod sandwiches to sugar sweets). Watching the sugar sweets being made in a small shop was really cool. Of course, over the 4 hours you get to hear a lot about Copenhagen and Denmark in addition to the info about Scandinavian food. Overall, a really good tour!
This was a great tour , the guide was knowlegable and the food was great!
Great way to see the city and experience a range of Danish fare! Maria was an excellent tour guide! I went back for the licorice and bornholme rye crackers to bring home! Enjoyed everything and especially seeing the confectionery being made. Great mix of eating and walking! Only minor suggestion I have would be to add a fruit and ice cream stop during the summer.
Superb tour. A great chance to try special food and drink of Denmark. Plenty to eat and lots of Copenhagen to see and learn about too. Maria was a very lovely and interesting guide. Stongly recommend this trip
Great tour, Maria was fun, interesting and knowledgeable. Just enough walking, enjoyed meeting the hosts of shops and restaurants. Could not have been better.

This tour was great! I did it on my first day in town and it was a great way to find out about some hidden local spots and to get a good feel of the area.
Don't miss this exceptional tour that provides an excellent overview of local food specialities and philosophy. Do it at the beginning of your stay so you can spot places to go back to! Our friendly guide Maria was not only informative about food but shared insights on the overall history and culture of Copenhagen and Denmark. The 4 hour tour gives a broad perspective of the local food scene and provides more than enough nourishment to cover lunch! I would recommend a short visit of the food market at Israels Plads (starting point of the tour) before going on the actual tour. Closest subway is Nørreport station.
