Good enough tour, Tivoli is attractive
, Jul 2019
The tour was nice. The explanation was adequate. The architecture in the older part of town was very nice. Some negatives: The Viator ticket doesn't get you on the boat. You still have to stand on a long line to exchange your Viator ticket for the real one. And if your ticket is date is off a bit because you changed your plans, you have to argue before they will honor it. I got sunburned, as the tour boat was completely exposed. Tivoli is one of those places you must see, but for a mature adult there isn't all that much to do. It is a very pretty place though.
Excellent Canal Tour

We loved the canal tour. Tivoli Gardens would be great for a family with children, but it was not that meaningful to me...more like an amusement park.

Great tour! A little confusing upon arriving and seeing the first time wasn't until 10:00 & I had 9:30, but the boat showed up and off we went. Loved seeing all the things and learned a lot! Recommend it!

The boat ride was very good and worth seeing. Tivoli gardens was good also but please remember if you want to go on rides costs extra and get the ride package when you go in gate to book in also. We had a good day there and the rides were good.
Wonderful experience!

Heinrich and Nicolai were very knowledgeable tour guides! The group was small and manageable making for a great personal experience. We highly recommend them!
Fun, family friendly and a great way to see the city!

We thoroughly enjoyed this tour and found the canal tour especially fun, informative and family friendly. Our little one loved it. My only complaint that was that the skip the line tickets were not actually skip the line tickets for Tivoli and we had to stand in the normal line, so I found that disappointing and misleading.
Excellent Tour
, Apr 2019
Thoroughly enjoyed the tour, it was a lovely overview of the city and the information really added to the land tours we had taken during the trip. Would highly recommend. Also, Tivoli Gardens was a great added bonus, but be aware that the price of the rides is not included, they are bought separately.
As advertised
, Dec 2018
The boat tour left on time, was comfortable, and covered many highlights. The only unfortunate part was that it was through a headset that was provided and these things tend to be cheap, uncomfortable, and often only one ear speaker works. However, the commentary was good. Entry tickets to Tivoli meant we could skip the line as advertised which was very good.
Viator unsolicted emails
, Dec 2018
The canal tour and skip the line at Tivoli was excellent. However the daily bombardment of unsolicited emails from Viator is outrageous. I will NEVER book by viator again due to constant unwanted intrusions. VIATOR - LEAVE ME ALONE!

We turned in our voucher in return for tickets to a canal cruise and Tivoli Gardens amusement park. Both were wonderful. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the cruise, got to see the statue of The Little Mermaid along the way, and also learned about Hans Christian Andersen and saw his residences. We cruised by many important buildings, We saw one was the royal family's house when the are in Copenhagen. We saw the offices of the largest container company in the world, Maersk. There was also a submarine on display in the canal. We learned about the bridges which we sailed under, connecting each land side of the canal and the history of various landmarks. The hostess spoke in a microphone to explain the various points of interest. We were allowed to take photos. We particularly liked the many pastel colored homes along the canal. It was a wonderful trip! We celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary this way.We also were admitted to Tivoli and rode the Carousel. There were many attractions, rides and foods including an adjacent Food Hall.We thoroughly enjoyed both the canal tour and Tivoli Gardens.
