As you glide through the harbor, pass many of the wonderful towers and famous palaces in Copenhagen and see the famous Little Mermaid statue.

Very nice tour! I would do this again with victor!!!!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2014

It was a very good way to see a lot of the city without too much walking - the recorded guide gave us easy to understand and substantial information. The Harbour cruise was interesting but on reflection would have done better with a canal cruise as we revisited a lot of the places we had seen from the bus.

This was a great way to see the city in a few hours.

Our tour guide David was fabulous, he really did a great job. We really enjoyed the canal/harbor side boat ride. Wish we had more time there. Had to shorten the harbor cruise to catch the ship, but it was worth taking a shorter canal ride than no canal ride at all.

Beautiful city. Tour gave us a good view of the main sights of the city.

4 star rating: Recommended September 2014

We enjoyed the tour. It gave us a great overview of the city so we could decide where we wanted to spend more time and it also gave us time in spots that we otherwise wouldn't have had time to go.

I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this tour but for the fact that the meeting place was not clearly defined and we almost missed it! The instructions read, "Meet your guide outside City Hall in City Hall Square". There was no one there with a Viator sign or any further direction. We asked other vendors several times and one FINALLY
said, "oh, they usually meet people over there and down at the end of the block" and sure enough (even tho' we had looked a number of times) there was the bus which then pulled away! We cut across a block long
parking lot - hoping they were going around the block - and successfully flagged them down! THAT was too
close to call. The actual tour was excellent. It would have been helpful to know where the drop off point was
as it was quite a way from where we started. We had a superb trip out of Rome with Viator and I'd use them again; I'd ask more questions.


4 star rating: Recommended December 2013

Our excursion started very poorly, due to a "Marathon" event which excluded approx 50% of this tour route.
Driver said "Not worth doing now".so they offered another tour "Hop on Hop off" bus pass instead.
Covering both "Red and Green" systems over 48 hours. Although we only used it on the one day.
Think this more than compensated us. Oyher than that is was a very good excursion.
