The tour seemed fine when it started, but if you buy a boat ride also the company leaves you there so you must find a way to get back on your own. We were just starting the tour when they stopped to let us off for the canal ride. We never finished since they would not return to pick us up. Buy the tour separately.
Convenient, reasonably priced overview, but with drawbacks

Two part tour, Comfortable bus which made three stops: Little Mermaid, changing of guard at Palace, and Opera House, with nice narrative throughout from excellent guides. Second part was 1 hour canal cruise. So...why just average? There was nothing to see at the Opera House, and the canal cruise covered it too. Changing of the guard was bland, but at least the guide's historical narrative made it interesting. Little mermaid was swamped, with tourists literally climbing onto the statue. No security? On the canal cruise, they couldn't start the boat and, after about 20 minutes, offloaded us to another boat, that they then held longer to wait for a late arriving school group. We were told we'd have an option of an open or closed boat. We didn't, had only an open boat, and were rained on considerably. The cruise overlapped with the bus tour, stopping from the water side to view from the boat the Little Mermaid, the Palace and the Opera House. Visited nearby canals filled mostly with middle income housing. The one canal we did NOT visit was Nyhavn, arguably the most picturesque, and the one the company uses in its promotional picture. Later, on a city map, we saw Nyhavn was a second origin point for canal cruises, so maybe a more attractive canal cruise was possible.
The tour arranged through Stromma Copenhagen,had very unhelpful guide and very unfriendly .In addition they left us at the harbor without dropping us at the pick up site.This was very inconvenient and we had to walk a lot.
I will never book a tour with Stromma Copenhagen in future.
We were supposed to meet the tour at 11 am. Hotel desk said it would take less than five minutes to get there. We left 20 minutes early but got stuck in traffic and didn't make it to the tour stop until 11:08 and the but was gone. Obviously they didn't care that a lot of construction was going on and someone might be late. And we were four people! I guess that Viator in Copenhagen doesn't give a hoot about the customer. Not a good thing.
Great tour for visitors to wonderful Copehagen! The tour takes you through the city and stops at major tourist attractions including The Little Mermaid, home of the Danish Royal family Amalienborg, and the modern Opera house. Our guide Teddy is very knowledgeable of this fabulous city. Because the tour group size can be large, please be considerate of fellow travelers and be back on the bus on time. We also did the Harbor cruise which provided another perspective of this lovely city. Tour of Copenhagen by land and sea is a fabulous way of enjoying this gem in Scandinavia!
We went to the designated meeting place to start our tour, and found a dozen or more other people standing around with tickets for the tour in their hands also. No bus to be found. We looked a block down the street and saw a bus sitting there, and upon approaching the bus, we were told it was the bus for the tour. When I asked the tour guide why the bus wasn't at the designated meeting place, she said they did not have a parking spot there. Poor excuse. I'm don't know if anyone else has had this problem with finding the tour bus.
When you visit the various places listed on the tour - you just drive past all of them, except you do get off the bus to see the changing of the guard. When it was time for the canal/harbor cruise we had to wait in line with others that had purchased tickets for the gray line cruise. I was under the impression that we would have a boat waiting just for our group once the bus tour was done. The canal/harbor cruise did NOT go down Nyhavn canal. Very disappointed in this tour.
