We booked the bus & boat tour on the same day as we were only in Copenhagen for 3 days and unfortunately it rained most of the time. At least that's how we saw the most important sights since we did the Classic Tour. All drivers were very nice and helpful. Only once was a stop announced, but we couldn't get up from our seats that quickly, so we drove on. The only thing that could be improved would be a table with the arrival times at each stop, because they only said "every half hour". The guide on the boat named Patrick was very friendly and explained everything in a fun way! We personally liked the boat tour even better than the bus tour.

This was a wonderful experience. Our guide was exceptionally knowledgeable, organised and with a great sense of humour. A great balance was struck between the guided aspects and those times when we were free to roam. The sites were beautiful and incredibly interesting, with just enough time at each to absorb the atmosphere. Highly, highly recommended.

I’d say this tour was one of the best tours I have been on. Really informative and the tour guide was excellent. Great sense of humour too!

Good fun in the snow. Cold but the coffee stop was ideal for us.

Great boat trip with very informative guide. Would reccomend
