What You Can Expect

Copenhagen Shore Excursion: Panoramic City Tour with Harbor Cruise

Copenhagen Shore Excursion: Copenhagen City and Harbor Tour

While your cruise ship is docked in Copenhagen, make your way into the center of the city to start your 3-hour city sightseeing tour.
Hop aboard your comfortable coach and relax into your seat for your panoramic tour of Denmark’s charming capital. As you travel, listen to the informative audio commentary to learn the stories and secrets of the sights.
Have your camera ready as you pass top Copenhagen attractions, including the iconic Tivoli Gardens. Opened in 1843, this amusement park is a Danish national treasure and famous for its nostalgic rides, antique wooden coaster and lush gardens. 
See the Amalienborg palace, the winter home of the Danish royals, and the stately art museum Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek. Swing by the splendid Gefion Fountain and take snaps of cobbled King’s Square, the city’s old central square with its equestrian statue of King Christian V.
After seeing the main sights, leave your coach at the former fish market, and board a sightseeing boat for your cruise around Copenhagen’s harbor and canals.
Find a comfortable spot on board and admire the city skyline as you glide by the colorful harborfront. Pass the legendary Little Mermaid, the waterside statue inspired by Hans Christian Andersen's fairytale; and then cruise along the canals of the delightful Christianshavn and Frederiksholms districts. 
Admire the low bridges, colourfully painted townhouses and bobbing houseboats, and glimpse the serpentine spire of Our Saviour’s Church with its winding staircases — one of Copenhagen’s most iconic landmarks.
After viewing the sights by water, step ashore at Gammel Strand, an easy stroll from Stroget, the city’s major shopping avenue.
Please note: the start and end points of this tour are situated within walking distance of Copenhagen cruise port, allowing you to determine the time when you need to leave to return to the port. Please ensure your timely return to your cruise ship.

In the very unlikely case that your ship has departed, we will arrange for transportation to the next port-of-call. If your ship is delayed and you are unable to join this excursion, your money will be refunded. See our terms and conditions for more details.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2014

It was a very good way to see a lot of the city without too much walking - the recorded guide gave us easy to understand and substantial information. The Harbour cruise was interesting but on reflection would have done better with a canal cruise as we revisited a lot of the places we had seen from the bus.

Our tour guide David was fabulous, he really did a great job. We really enjoyed the canal/harbor side boat ride. Wish we had more time there. Had to shorten the harbor cruise to catch the ship, but it was worth taking a shorter canal ride than no canal ride at all.

We enjoyed the tour. It gave us a great overview of the city so we could decide where we wanted to spend more time and it also gave us time in spots that we otherwise wouldn't have had time to go.
