A great tour. Perfect length for a quick view of the city. Would recommend doing it first on your trip as it'll help you get your bearings. Tour guide was excellent too - funny and knowledgeable

Perfect amount of time for the activity and wonderful starting point in city centre. Stick to the right side of the boat for the best views though.

Quick one hour tour of Copenhagen via waterways. Rained the whole time, but was able to open windows in the boat to take photos

Great guided canal tour! One full hour. A very pleasant way to see Copenhagen.

An alternative way to see Copenhagen in short time.
