  • The guide was very personable, and this was a great tour to do on my first full day in the city. It gave me a sense of where things are in the city center, and I developed a solid idea of sites I wanted to revisit after the tour was over.

  • Our guide was very knowledgeable and fun. We had a great time.

  • The guide was excellent and provided good information on the history of Copenhagen. Hard to beat a walking tour when you have a good guide.

  • This tour was great and we highly recommend it to anyone visiting Copenhagen. Our guide, Sjaella, was both knowledgeable and charming as she guided us around the Old Town. She guided us through the history, shopping and local foods. She even shared a few hidden treasures with us you'll have to take her tour to find out what they are! We were very happy that we followed her recommendations about where to shop and what local foods to eat. For anyone planning to visit Copenhagen, do yourself a favor and make this tour the first thing you do. And be sure to ask for Sjaella.

  • We realised things were off to a good start when we arrived 20 minutes early to find Stuart with a large lanyard badge with TOUR GUIDE clearly written on it already at the rendez-vous point how many times in the past have we spent looking for the guide and vice versa . Our group was 6 in total and Stuart made a point of introducing himself and everyone to each other. He also continued to use our names throughout the tour a nice touch . We had a very informative tour and spoiler alert we enjoyed his humour around King Christian IV throughout the tour. Aside from the main points of interest, which Stuart was very knowledgable about, during the inevitable parts where we were simple getting from location to location, he invited questions and was able to answer every single one. We were also impressed by not only his historical knowledge but his current knowledge such as why the Danish Royal Family were not in residence and where they actually were that particular day. We realise that, from reading other reviews, the particular guide makes all the difference so for us, Stuart made this tour exceedingly interesting and enjoyable.

  • A virtual waste of time. I have had many walking tours in many cities and this one was so poorly done I am considering not doing any more of them.
    I expect a tour guide to do more than recite a few arcane facts. They should provide some new level
    of insight and/or information. Plus this tour guide

  • While Jessica was a very nice tour guide, this was more of a 3 hour walk along the streets of Copenhagen than a tour of the City. For those who really want to get an overview of Copenhagen I would recommend the Hop-on, Hop- off bus. After 3 hours of walking the streets you are tired and really have not seen to much.

  • My wife and I had a great time on this tour. Even though we walked in steady rain, with brief periods without rain and frequent heavy downpours. Our guide said that this was typical Copenhagen weather. We saw most of downtown Copenhagen, including Tivoli Gardens, the Royal's residences, several beautiful churches, and the marketplace. The group was small--my wife, me, and another couple. We were able to ask lots of questions, and that made the tour even more special.

  • This is a great tour. Saw all the major sites. Tour guide was very knowledgeable and personable. Only thing I would change is to move a little slower, would have been better if we could stop and take in the surroundings. Other than that, highly recommend this tour!

  • We met with Stephan and enjoyed a pleasurable walk around the City Center. He was very knowledgeable and informative in showing us many of the sights and providing options of other things we could do. Unfortunately, we were leaving that afternoon on a Cruise, but we have a wealth of information if we ever return.
