  • freezing cold, and nobody in Copenhagen in Jan! after about 6pm streets are dead and service in restaurants is poor

  • Nice way to start your visit to Copenhagen

  • Our group of sixteen16 friends are one in saying that this is a cruise one mustn't miss while in Copenhagen. The audio gave very good insights into what we were seeing. Highly recommended.

  • Outstanding excursion! The perfect way to get to see and know your way around Copenhagen. Excellent value, in fact better than excellent. Do yourself a great favour and take an excursion as one of your first outings in the Danish capital. Boat was warm and dry for our winter tour. And the guide provides a really informative and entertaining commentary.

  • This tour was amazing!

  • A good way to get a good overview of a city from a different perspective.

  • We booked our canal tour with viator. Actually it would not have been necessary. There are many canal tours scheduled and the best option is to go with your group first thing in the morning half hour before the tour and wait for a place. The later in the morning and day of course the less your chances are to get a place for everyone on the same boat if you are a group. we were 7 persons. one or two persons will not have any problems getting a space but you will always have to wait for a certain amount of time.
    The tour guide on the canal tour was excellent! He gave a very good overview and interesting historical points that are more likely to stick in one's memory. The canal tour is a must for Copenhagen - a great way to get a general feeling and lay out of this wonderful and historical place.

  • Recommend for a quick tour of the city.

  • Well worth a trip on this tour, very enjoyable!
