    I had no problem with the bus tour, but the boat trip did not happen with no refund. When we arrived at the boat they was a queue, but the boats are large and there were still places available when we reached the boat. We were told it was full but they then allowed at least a dozen people on who were behind us in the queue. The staff were very rude and kept on saying it was full and it was first come, first served, which was ludicrous when they were stopping us and letting on people behind us. I was with a friend who is disabled, but this made no difference. I suspect they were continuing to sell tickets for cash to people just turning up and kicking off people who had pre booked. We had to book and pay for a boat trip with another operator. Do not book the combined bus and boat ticket.

    This is the worst hop on hop off tour I have ever taken. See my list of reasons below: 1. They refused to take the top off even though it was 60 degrees. 2. The driver had no basic knowledge about anything. Museums are closed on Mondays. The driver should have known that so we didn't waste our time getting off at a stop that was closed. He didn't even know when I asked him directly. 3. The stops were hotels and other boring places. I am sure there were things to do near the stops but neither the driver nor the recorded commentary alerted us to this. 4. The recorded commentary was not interesting at all. We ended up getting off the bus and walking around Copenhagen and made our own walking tour. We had a great day but not because of this tour.

    Tickets sold by Viator not recognised by the bus and the boat companies. Avoid by all means. Find other company.

    The boat option was the highlight. It was often difficult to see things from the bus. Great way to get to different parts of the city.

    Don't waste your time with this atrocious company. We were on a cruise ship and were told a free shuttle will take you to the Litle Mermaid and they run every 30 minutes. After just under one hour the bus arrived. The buses are uncomfortable with hard seats and if you are tall mind you dont bang your head downstairs. If you have mobility difficulties and can't get upstairs the downstairs seats are raised up and difficult to get into. The map and information is poor compared to the other company that operates a similar service. At stop 1 we were instructed to get off the bus and get on the one in front. We did and then waited 20 mins before it left. When we got on the bus and intended to do a full round trip, then my elderly father was going to get off and I was going to do another trip hoping on and off. When we got back to the Little Mermaid we waited for the shuttle for half an hour. The bus was packed and we were lucky to get on. The whole trip took so long and the last bus was due to leave at 5 from the stop so there was no time for me to get back on. The round trip with no hops off took about 4 hours. An awful experience that ruined my time in Copenhagen.

    We waited for over 1.5 hrs for a pick up by the bus. Got the app and watched 3 buses bypass the cruise piers. We finally opted for the other hop on hop off company which had plenty of buses at the dock. When we called the Red Sightseeing company we got a voice mail so no help. There were 3 cruise ships at this terminal the only ones in this port. When we signed up for this tour it said it had a pickup at the cruise terminal. I am expecting a refund.

    We took the last tour bus and the driver was lenient, stopped longer at most interesting spots, traffic was light. Bought a combined ticket with Trivoli park allowed us to explore the park on our preferred day. We did not take the boat.

    Bus did not keep to any reasonable schedule. After telling us that we would leave within 10-15 min for Copenhagen, we waited over 90 min meaning that it took almost 2 hours to get from the ship to the centre of Copenhagen. Many people reported the audio didn’t work (we suspect their cheap earphones as we discarded those and used our own and then could hear), so then the driver yelled over the top of the audio…..information anyway was minimal and uninteresting. Then on the return journey, after telling us that a shuttle came back to Ocean Key every 20 min, we waited on that shuttle for over 50 mins for it to leave. Total shambles of a company that totally ruined our day …. Avoid them

    The guided tour is not complete. Expect long pauses. The bus was not very clean. You can suddenly be requested to change buses.

  • 04-Sep-2022

    Very easy to book and my option meant my 10 yr old was free. I also chose an option for a boat trip and this was the only negative…it was not clear that the boat trip was NOT with the hop on hop off and we had to go in search of the company (netto) when we got to them they also did not know anything about it but honoured our tickets…buses were very busy on our day as 2 cruises were in port
