What people are saying about Copenhagen

Very good guide, bikes could be a bit better

As an intro to Copenhagen it was a great ride, highlighting places that it would be worth revisiting. Did not cover the whole of the centre but gave a good appreciation, The guide was knowledgeable and entertaining. The bikes took a bit of getting used to as the front brakes were not too effective and the back pedal, bake brake took a bit of getting used to. It was not the fastest ride due to the pace of some of the riders but this did not lead to the guide pressurising anyone. Overall a good 3 hours of enjoyment and education.

One of the best free walking tour I've had.

Our tour guide Ben from Malta was the best tour guide I've had so far (and I've taken many free walking tours around)! He made our tour very engaging to the history behind Copenhagen. He had a great sense of humor and he looked like he knew about the city a lot. Very secure although sometimes joking around a little but I personally enjoyed that. I would highly recommend this tour - and the guide of course! - to people when visiting Copenhagen!

The Tivoli Garden fast track entry ticket was not as described

The Copenhagen Tivoli Gardens fast track entry ticket was not as described. The venue has one line that devolves into 4 lines at the entry point.thus the description fast track is misleading and deceptive. The entry is effectively the same for all entrants to Copenhagen Tivoli Gardens. Despite this marketing embellishment we very much enjoyed the visit to Tivoli Gardens Copenhagen. It was a beautiful day out thank you.

Great to hear the history of Copenhagen and see all the sights.

Alex was very knowledgeable and gave a great account of the history of Denmark. It was great to have two assistants on the ride as this was quite a large group. The size of the group made for a slow ride as it often took three sets of lights to cross roads. Apart from this drawback, it was a fun ride with 3 helpful, charming guys.

Well organised activity right at the cruise port

Very well organised and enjoyable. Group ranged from 16-48. After a few nerves at the beginning we all got the hang of the Segway and our guide Anika was so patient and calm. Great way to get a taste of Copenhagen and we then had plenty of time to walk back into the centre.
