    Nice experience on the canal, the ride is long, takes about 1 hour and passes through some well-known sites, the little mermaid can be seen but obviously from the back so you still have to go and visit on foot independently. The day was rainy so from the windows you could see little or nothing but it was still pleasant, the guide spoke not too fluent but understandable English. For the price I recommend it

    I highly recommend the canal tour. You see the city from a completely different, super great angle. The guide not only gives you a lot of information, but also suggestions on what else you can experience and see. At the beginning, each individual was asked which language they wanted and it was then implemented perfectly. Really great!

    It was really nice to be in a full (but not capacity) group of people for our fully bi-lingual tour (Danish and English). The guide was informative and entertaining ... easy to hear and understand, open to questions and comments. The hour-long tour was a comfortable amount of time to spend in the boat. We always felt safe on the water.
