Super cruise! We took it on a rainy day, but it was very funny anyway. It had an audio guide recorded, but the real guide on the boat was very talkative, so we had almost 2 guides on this tour :) The boat was new, windows were clean, so we could see everything very clear and take good pictures even from inside. It was easy to change voucher to tickets.

Unfortunatly we had bad weather, so the roof was closed, which could have been a bit cleaner. But that is really the only complain. It´s a really nice tour, you see every highlight that you can see from the water and i really can recommend to go on a boat in copenhagen, it´s worth it!

Πολύ ωραία βόλτα γύρω από τη Κοπεγχάγη με το καραβάκι. Ίσως με πιο καλό καιρό να είναι ακόμα καλύτερη μιας και εμείς ήμασταν στο κλειστό κομμάτι του καραβιού. Είναι ωραίο μα το κάνετε στην αρχή του ταξιδιού σας έτσι ώστε να έχετε μια γενική εικόνα της πόλης. Βλέπεις διαφορά αξιοθέατα αλλά από αρκετά μακρυά.
