Full description
Discover the sites of central Copenhagen on a 2-hour walking tour. With a local by your side, you’ll learn about the city’s culture, see important historical sites, and stop by lesser-known gems.  The tour kicks off from Kafferiet, one of Copenhagen’s most charming coffee houses. Arrive 10 minutes before the tour start time and you can grab a cup of coffee or another beverage if you’d like to take it along. From the coffee house, your expert guide will take you on a historical highway with tales that will enthrall you. Hear about the greatest moments of Copenhagen’s rich 1000-year long history. It all starts at one of the most iconic fortifications called Kastellet. From there head through a lush, green park that commemorates the heroes of World War II. Encounter one of Copenhagen’s most impressive fountains called the Gefion Fountain. As you walk past, go by a boardwalk with an amazing view of the harbor. Say hi to the iconic Little Mermaid and hear why she’s more epic than you might imagine. Afterward, visit Amalienborg and see the Royal Palace. Here your guide will let you in on insider stories about the Royal Guards and awe-inspiring tales about the royals that only those who have been in the guard know about. You will even get to play a little game that will test your observational skills about where the current head of the Danish royal family, Daisy, lives. Next, walk to the picturesque harbor canal, New Harbor. Get a very special point of view for a memorable photo. Don’t hesitate to ask your guide in assisting in capturing that picture-perfect image. Continue down a little alleyway and walk across one of Copenhagen's most famous squares. Stretch your neck back and admire the spire of one of Copenhagen's most spectacular churches. This will conveniently lead you to the palace that serves as the Danish parliament today. Learn all about Danish politics and its all-encompassing welfare society. Also hear why it has helped earn the Danish the title as some of the happiest people in the world years in a row. The tour ends here at a beautiful square, conveniently located right next to the main pedestrian street right in the heart of Copenhagen close to busses, taxis, and metro lines.

Most of our fellow travellers were American. Our guide Anne was very knowledgeable, kind, humourous, and had the perfect attitude that helped set the mood and pace of our tour. She stopped for pictures, told us little snippets and gave us additional information about places to check out or dine in. 10/10 recommend this tour for everyone wanting to learn about this city.

Silvester was a very good tour guide who showed Copenhagen with a lot of knowledge and interesting stories. He shared some funny anecdotes that will stick in my memory. This walk gives you a first impression of the diversity of Copenhagen: parks, water, gardens, castles, etc... everything is there. :-)

The tour was totally magnificent, I have enjoyed every single minute of it, you get to know everything about Copenhagen and the history of the city. My tour guide Mei was totally magnificent and nice, she has done everything to get me a wonderful experience, it couldn’t be better. I was impressed with her wide knowledge and her full explanation of every question of mine. She gave me a lot of Tipps and recommendations about Copenhagen. I traveled a lot and I can say that Mei is one of the best tour guides I ever met. I totally recommend this tour and if I came back to Copenhagen again I would love to take the same tour again.
