This was an amazing experience. We ended up being the only participants during our time slot, but our tour guide put just as much effort into making our tour excellent…in fact, he made it better by asking about our interests as well! We highly recommend this tour!! It’s a great way to see the heartbeat of the City, and not too taxing as we took many breaks to discuss the historical relevance of various sites.

With Arthur, our driver, and Christian, our guide, the trip was really fun. Christian was able to answer any of our questions and also informed us about the current situation in Denmark. Unfortunately, the weather didn't allow us to do everything we wanted to do, which was walking to each attraction.

Perfect if you want to get around fast and see as many sights as possible. All main sights are included (eg. Christiansborg castle, Frelsers Kirke, canal tour etc.). Which makes it easy to visit for a great deal. Can only recommend.

This card will save you tons of money. Free public transportation is definitely important when you visit Copenhagen. The free attractions were also great. I got to enjoy CPH at a very affordable price because of this card.

Absolutely worth it. I can only recommend it and I would do it again.
