Full description
Enjoy a 2.5-hour free tour exploring the notorious history hidden behind the picturesque streets and colorful harbors of modern day Copenhagen. For hundreds of years the Danes were an unstoppable force of warriors, explorers and settlers, uniting Scandinavia, discovering America and bringing terror to the shores of Europe.

Local expert guides will take you on a walking tour through 6000 years of Copenhagen’s history. As the days of conquest passed, Danish power was replaced with a rich cultural legacy of writers, artists and philosophers. This fairytale infused city where authors such as Hans Christian Andersen wrote their masterpieces is also author of its own stories and unbelievable true histories: Viking adventurers, the pirate-hunting Bishop Absalon, the daring Danish WWII resistance fighters and more.

Mo has a great sense of humor. For me, I find really interesting to know from someone who has moved from one country to another perspective. This helps me to relate the people I met and the places I went. It was definitely a fun tour for myself and my friend. We were still discussing after tour and went back to the places which Mo brought us and explore further. Thanks Mo!

The tour was great. It was quite cold but wearing appropriate clothing you can keep warm throughout the 2.5-3hrs walking through the city. Our guide Mo told us a lot about the city, sights, the royals and the people. We learned a lot of interesting facts and had a good time. The only thing we wouldn't recommend is having a gløgg in this one café/bar we stopped at with our guide since we paid 95dkk for one drink, whereas we found that usually gløgg costs between 30-60dkk anywhere else in the city (sometimes even including aebleskiver). Apart from that the tour is a great way of getting to know Copenhagen.

We had a 3 hour walk around the city, our tour guide was Allan, and he was fantastic. Great attitude and a great character also. Told us a lot of history and how his fellow Danes live, lots of laughs also. Do it on the first day, and you will get the lay of the land!
