Meet your guide at your Copenhagen hotel to start your tour. Alternatively, if you’re a cruise passenger, meet your guide at a central meeting point or at the port to travel into the center (additional cost). Inform your guide if there’s anything you want to see more of: as your tour is private, your itinerary can be tailored to your interests.
Then, set out to explore Copenhagen’s highlights on foot, learning about the city’s history on route. Pass the Tivoli Gardens, the world-famous amusement park, and see Town Hall Square. Amble down Stroget, the world’s longest traffic-free avenue, and cross Hojbro Square, admiring its equestrian statue of Absalon, Copenhagen’s 12th-century founder.
Enjoy free time for local snacks (own expense) and to browse for souvenirs before continuing through Kongens Nytorv, Copenhagen’s biggest square, toward Nyhavn, the pretty canalside lined with brightly painted houses.
See the tall-masted boats and lively coffee shops here, before admiring the elegant Amalienbrog Palace, home to the Danish royals. Then, walk to the Little Mermaid on the Langelinie waterfront, posing for photos by the statue inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s classic tale.
Your tour then ends in the city center or with a port drop-off (additional cost).
