This was an amazing experience. We ended up being the only participants during our time slot, but our tour guide put just as much effort into making our tour excellent…in fact, he made it better by asking about our interests as well! We highly recommend this tour!! It’s a great way to see the heartbeat of the City, and not too taxing as we took many breaks to discuss the historical relevance of various sites.

We booked this experience last minute to explore the city and get used to cycling in Copenhagen. The tour was really fun, informative and relaxed. Alex was a great tour guide and made sure that everyone was kept together and told us lots of interesting facts. Would recommend, especially when starting your Copenhagen trip!
