It was an absolutely LOVELY and AMAZING trip I have ever been guided!

That trip was the most memorable and exciting event I had during the 3-day trip to Copenhagen, I definitely say. We enjoyed listening to our such a handsome and knowledgeable tour guide and sailed safely and enjoyable thanks to our experienced captain. We admired the scenes jubilantly and joyfully with comprehensive and thorough captions from our amiable guide. Sometimes we felt mesmerized with the surrounding landmarks in a super slow motion of the boat, but sometimes we enjoyed harbour winds and water splashes in high speed. All were managed cleverly by our captain. So, if you still wonder what should try in Copenhagen, a 1-hour canal tour is my first recommendation.

Nice tour, too bad the English headsets didn’t work

No need to book ahead for a weekday in May, and “skipping the line” at Tivoli just means you go to the prepaid line for your ticket, unnecessary in May, and you still have to go to one of the two entrances staffed by humans, which may involve a long trek around the exterior of the Gardens (which are spectacular in tulip season, and tranquil on a weekday). The canal cruise was very nice, with comfortable seating inside and out, lots of great architecture and interesting boats to see. Bring anything you’ll want to drink (or eat) on board. Affable crew, but they gave up quickly when so many headsets didn’t work. Don’t forget your camera.

Crowded, but a good way to see the city in a short time.

There are plenty of busses and the bulk of the city was covered. There are three bus routes and the boat tour. All were included with this pass and Money was saved. The crowds were huge even in May. Can't imagine June and July when cruise ships are in port. Get the Red route (Little Mermaid) first thing in the morning. It was particularly nice that the bus stops at LM for 10 minutes to allow for pictures. This avoided one hop off. My biggest complaint would be the lack of information via the headsets. Our last hop on hop off was in Barcelona and they really gave you a lot of information. Significantly less info in Copenhagen.

It was exceptional and the tour felt like a luxury cruise.

The cruise boat tour guide was very detailed in her description of all of the important buildings around the canal. The cruise boat driver steered the boat very cautiously and in a way that made me enjoy the experience. Sitting with around 30 people and made the experience shared. I was able to take numerous photographs and I have a good memory of the hour spent.

Very informative and super funny guide - Julian !

My two friends and I really enjoyed the cruise on Saturday and it was mostly thanks to the knowledgeable and very funny Julian ! Thank you, you made our day ! Especially while approaching the disappointing Little Mermaid, which is even more little than her name indicates. And yet, you made us laugh with your comments !
