Loved our tour and tour guide! Got to see a different side and learn parts of its history of Copenhagen that a more conventional tour wouldn't provide.

The tour was more than we've expected and our guide was very informative, funny and despite the bad weather have managed to made us feel really interested in the stories of all the neighbourhoods and interesting parts of Copenhagen we've visited. A really good one, totally recommend it!

If you want to see the parts of Copenhagen not in the normal tours and sights to see, this is the tour for you. You will get a little history of how Copenhagen has tried to deal with homelessness, prostitution, and drugs. You'll also find out about the development of the city. But be prepared for a LOT of walking! The tour guide was very knowledgeable and sensitive to participants ability to keep up, waiting for folks to catch up before talking, not a common practice.

We are so glad that we booked this walking tour of Copenhagen. It was a great way to see things that mostly aren't on any tourist lists. Our tour guide, Esben, a native Dane, was very friendly and informative. The tour lasts about two and a half hours and starts at 3 p.m. from the Espresso House near Copenhagen Central Station. From there, we walked through the so-called red light district and Esben explained Denmark's welfare state and the regulation of the red light district. Afterwards, we walked to Copenhagen's meat packing district, an upcoming neighborhood perhaps inspired by Manhattan's own meat packing district. We took the metro from there included to Christianshavn and then Christiania. We got to see a hug expanse of Copenhagen in a short time and learn a lot from a native Dane that we might not find in the tourist guides. After the tour, Esben gave us directions to Copenhagen Street Food a short walk from Christiania, which we would also highly recommend. Sort of amazing that we got all of this information and sightseeing for less than 20 USD!

Very mind-opening view of Copenhagen. It showed parts of Copenhagen, most people would probably not find out in a conventional tour.
