I was so excited to go on this tour along with 3 of my friends. Our Viator vouchers all showed 10:00am as the meeting time and we got there at 9:45am only to find out that the tour left at 9:30am. I asked if the time had recently been changed and the tour operator said no, it's always been that time so Viator definitely had the time wrong and we missed our trip.

Went on this tour and it was punctual, we drove to a scenic outlook point which was stunning. It helped that it was a clear, blue sky day. Malmo was a quaint little city. When we arrived the driver told us where to meet him when we were done. I asked for a tourist map of the area, then only did the driver say oh thats a good idea and went off and got a map. By then most of our group had left so the poor souls were wondering around aimlessly. The driver was either not very knowledgeable or just lazy. He said he would give more info on the way back, but it was radio silence. The canal tour was beautiful. This was a lovely tour but it could have ben better.

Not a lot to do.

A good trip to experience the Oresund bridge and Malmö. The Canal tour was good. It was a Sunday so Malmö centre was a little quiet.
It could be better if the driver from Copenhagen to Malmö gave more commentary. Most of the trip was in silence, he needed to try harder.

While Malmo was a beautiful city in Sweden, we felt we should have used the day to explore more of Copenhagen. It might have been better as part of a tour of Sweden!
