Ok that might not be a real word but the tour was great and our guide Cristal made it that way! We were only 5 which made it nice and allowed us to see lots. Be warned that there is a lot of walking - the first 2-2.5 hours - and a few hours of cycling (3+) so you should wear comfortable shoes. Between the morning walk and the afternoon (after lunch) cycling there is a 1 hour canal ride; which was pleasant after the morning walk. The tour covers all the main sites in the city and does so fairly comfortably; I never felt rushed. We were given 1 hour or so (actually it was up to us) for lunch - we chose a food hall so we could all have what we wanted. Cristal had a great personality and connected with all of us; she also is very knowledgeable of the city so that made the tour even more interesting. If you have a short amount of time in the city and want to see all the sites - but not from a HopON-HopOFF bus - this is your tour! Enjoy!
Thank you very much for your lovely review and recommendation. We believe that our Grand Tour is really the best way to explore Copenhagen and we are happy to see that we managed to prove it to you. Hopefully, we will see you soon in one of our other destinations.
Nice one-day comprehensive tour of Copenhagen on foot, by canal and on a bicycle with a great tour guide!

Dalit, my tour guide, made this 8 hour tour go by very quickly! First we walked all over the inner city, and Dalit had lots of great stories and commentaries and added her friendly personality to enhance the experience. Then we took a canal boat tour, followed by eating lunch at a delicious little restaurant that locals know, and then we got on the bicycles to complete the view of the major sites in the city area. I highly recommend this tour for those folks that want to get to know the city in more depth than a normal short walking or canal tour. I also recommend Dalit as a guide. She has high energy and loves the city, and she enjoys meeting the people on her tour and will customize her guiding as much as possible to the interests of the client! Thanks.
This tour was great. We were a total of 5 people in our group. Laura was our tour guide. She was great. She was very knowledgeable and very personable. The pace was not too fast. We walked and stopped for 3 hours. Took a boat ride through the canals for one hour. The boat ride had a tour guide, but Laura sat with us and pointed out things along the way and gave additional comments. Then we rode bikes for 3 hours with stops along the way. All of it was done at a normal pace, not too fast. After the tour was over, she walked with us to a get a hot dog at a certain food stand (this is a must, it is organic! delicious too!), then took us to some shops we had asked about. She offered to stay with us longer but we were exhausted. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone that wants to touch on the high points of Copenhagen. We were only in town for 1 1/2 days and this was perfect for us. We got to see most of the highlights. We did not get to go inside of everything, but there is so much to see.
A great way to start a trip to Copenhagen. The tour takes in most of the city sights and starts with a couple of hours walking round the central area which gets you orientated and then progresses to the canal tour which covers the waterfront etc. Finally there is the bike ride which is probably the best way to cover ground and explore further. The tour was very well organised and delivered by our charming guide Sjalla who couldn't have been more helpful pointing out lots of interesting places and facts as well as answering all our questions and managing any necessary stops. Recommendation of taking lunch in the Food Market was particularly helpful and we even went back there after the tour to further explore its delights. Sjalla made the day and her infectious personality and smile kept the notoriously fickle Copenhagen weather sunny despite the forecast. My wife had her doubts about being able to participate in the cycling part but Sjalla couldn't have been more helpful, patient and encouraging and soon dispelled any nervousness. Although billed as a small group tour there was only the two of us which made it even more personalised. Thoroughly recommend this tour.
Our Guide was excellent. We had a long walking tour of the city. Then a great canal boat trip. Followed by a bike ride out to see the Little Mermaid. The bike ride was at the end of the day so the traffic was busy. Not for the faint of heart!
We had a great tour and our guide was very knowledgeable the City and the sites. I forget her name but she was from Spain. The two things I would change was more bathroom breaks. She seemed to know where all the public bathrooms where once we finally asked 4 hours into our tour. And riding a bike in commute traffic with no bike lane was not safe for me. She was used to it, I was not. I ended up pushing my bike on the side walk part of the time. She needed to read the 8 people on the tour a little better. We saw a lot and great time was had by all. But bicycling in traffic if you are not use to it can be scary. I did love the Tovehallerne food hall for lunch, but was so turned around it could not find it again when we came back from our cruise 9 days later. Some kind of map of where all we went might have been helpful, we kind of walked and biked in big figure 8 and I just lost my sense of direction. I didn't m know the name of the place until I read someone else's review.
Couldn't recommend this tour more. As recommended in other reviews, we took this tour our first day in Copenhagen. So glad we did. Laura was a terrific guide with all kinds of interesting info, and it gave us an overview for this rest of our stay.
I visited Copenhagen for work from USA-Michigan and was traveling solo. This was the highlight of my trip. There were 4 other solo travelers in our group of 6. Our guide was fabulous and was always very conscious of our safety bike ride. I met some fabulous people in group. We even went out to dinner together afterwards. Amazing place to visit and a great tour to be part of.
