There is no better way to tour the canal and see Copenhagen from the water than with the Hey Captain crew. They were amazing!

Relaxing tour
Brian_G, Oct 2022
Nice and relaxing way to see the city from an different view. Tour guide was friendly and full of information.
A better choice than the bigger boats and so much more memorable
This was a great tour. It's a small group and you get to know the people traveling with you. The tour guide Luna was personable and knowledgeable and made the tour fun.
Just ok
Clara_R, Oct 2022
The tour was ok, you don’t leave an area that is relatively small. Our tour guide a female that had just started a few months back at the job was very nice but not very informative. When asked a couple of questions from the other guests she did not have the knowledge to answer. Since it is a very simple tour in a closed area it would be nice to receive more interesting information.
Social is Correct Word

"Social" is the perfect word
Rosalyn_R, Sept 2022
The way this tour is described is exactly what I got. a great group of people who were interested in sharing stories and a guide, August, who made us feel welcome. He showed us parts of Copenhagen that I'd never have seen otherwise. Highly recommend!
Angel_M, Sept 2022
We took this tour today and I knew I wanted to immediately leave a review. We truly enjoyed our two hour tour so much and 100% of the credit goes to our Captain, Peter. There were 11 of us on this tour, Peter had all our names correct after just being introduced. He was knowledgeable and humor and engaging. Strangers on the tour became friends instantly. I think that all of us felt that booking this tour was truly a great decision and I cannot recommend it highly enough.
Great excursion, Great Captain...
Alain_V, Sept 2022
Our Captain, Peter/Pieter...super nice, personal human being. Loved his methodology in getting us all to chat and frankly gave me insights in to Danish culture I would not have gotten were it not for this awesome outing.
Very Good tour but a bit too slow

The island bastions were super interesting Amelia was five star host She was super knowledgeable and a very sweet young lady. Tour was a bit slow. Could have been done in much shorter time frame. Thank you Amelia for your insight.

Great Company & Fantastic Experience
Vasinee_O, Aug 2022
Highly recommended! Our flight to Denmark was cancelled, and we missed the tour. We emailed Hey Captain about our situation, and they rescheduled it to the next day. We are so grateful for their flexibility. Our tour guide, Amelia, is fun, professional, and knowledgeable. We had such a great time on the boat. They deserve 100 stars!
Wonderful surprise
Carmen, Aug 2022
I missed the boat but the provider booked me for the next one. I was the only passenger on the boat and I got a wonderful boat ride from a very knowledgeable and friendly helmsman. Thank you
