Very nice tour in which you pass the highlights of Copenhagen and in the meantime receive an explanation. Was our first time with a Segway, but it went without saying. You also get plenty of time to practice beforehand. My kids (20 and 22) also thought it was worth it.

Gustav was a young but engaged guide and we had an amazing food and cycling tour. We were 12 people from many different nations (including Danish) and the tour was a bit shorter than 3 hours. We tasted different food and all seemed to be very authentic.

Just before we left Copenhagen, we had a spare hour and did the canal cruise. We were surprised how many new angles from the city you see. Definitely a nice experience.

krispin was absolutely great as a tour guide. great system set up. a lot of information and enough time at each stop. would definitely recommend

Excellent, the tour guide speaks very good English and introduces everything very well.
