Our tour guide Martin was quite knowledgeable with a good sense of humor. Not your normal Copenhagen tour, it brought us to such areas as the meat packing district (which is now a trendy hipster area). I really enjoyed the hot dog/beer pit stop along the way. We then went to part of the town that Christiania is in. Outside tours are apparently not allowed inside Christiana so he brought us near an entrance and told us all about it and then we were able to explore it on our own. My only knock is that the entrance that he brought us to was a side entrance that there wasn’t much near. When we went inside, we really didn’t know where to go (which did offer an opportunity for exploring though). The main entrance as it turns out was just around the corner. It would have been better if he mentioned where the main entrance was.

Alan was an excelent guide that gave us a lot of insights about copenhagen's hidden neighbourhoods! Worth attending this tour since it has nothing to do with the mainstream touristic tours; it is much more realistic on what copenhagen has to offer to its residents and visitors.

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.

Got a little preachy at times, especially regarding prostitution. It was too cold to stand for long periods of time. On the positive side, we ended up, later, going to a couple of great restaurants in the Meatpacking area. We discovered them as part of the tour.

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!

They gave us the wrong meeting point and forgot to tell us it had been changed, and we ended up mislng the tour!

This was an informative, interesting walk around familiar areas of Copenhagen with historical, cultural and social highlights that I had not discovered on my own independent wanderings - with a very special final stop!

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.

Interesting to learn how Copenhagen deals with social problems. The tour description indicates that we'll get to see a homeless shelter. We did not -- but we did go to an area of the town where there are some and the services they offer were described. Also, the tour no longer actually goes INTO Christiana. You can do that on your own. The tour description needs to to updated. Also, they do not have a very systematic way of keeping track of who has actually paid so they had to re-check and count the number in the group a couple of times. Maybe have a better way to keep track?

I bought this for my mom while I was working. She said they toured the less glorified and real-people part of the city. The biggest disappointment was that the tour guide did not return the group to the meet-up location, just left them somewhere and the group had to find their own way back. My mom was not with anyone, ended up taking a taxi back from a sketchy neighborhood. Very unprofessional and I would suggest you not do this alone in case your guide ditch you, too.
