Enjoyed a fun boat tour with Oliver as the guide. He was engaging, humorous and did a great job of describing this beautiful city and the places of interest in route. It's a great way to see the city from the water & I took some really good photographs! Highly recommend this if you are on a short stay in... More

This wasn't that good value. I know it is not high season but the last bus stopped around 3pm and at one stage you even had to change buses, Ony 1 of 3 routes were operating. You didn't know when they were going to turn up if you hopped off and wanted to hop on again as the timetable was... More

Used the bus as was only in Copenhagen for a day and didn't know the area. However after walking around for a while it became obvious that we could have probably walked to the thing we wanted to get to without actually using the bus. The tour itself didn't provide a huge amount of detail and half of the stops... More

We were here on a very quick visit, and only had the morning between breakfast and lunch free, so decided to do this tour.

We have used these all over the world and this one didn't disappoint either. We booked the ticket which included the boat trip which, although freezing cold was well worth it! The only downside, which we have never experienced before was the very limited service e.g. sometimes waiting an hour between buses.

We took this tour in June, picking up the bus from the cruise terminal. I have limited mobility so this was going to be the perfect way to see the city.

Dear bet410, Thank you for your review. We appreciate the feedback so we can continue to improve. On cruiseship days, the buses do get a bit crowed, which is not an excuse for the overcrowded buses, but simply an explanation that there is such an influx in people in Copenhagen that sometimes our capacity cannot keep up.

Staying in Indre By (Inner City)

Neighbourhood Profile
Indre By (Inner City)
This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its blend of charming old buildings and bold new architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which consists of three buildings, two of which are new and situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and venues of the inner city and its surrounding neighborhoods, are alive all year round with everything from jazz festivals to outdoor ice skating rinks and parachuting at the lakes right in the center of the city. This compact area boasts beautiful old castles, tranquil parks, and bustling squares where you can always find a bench to stretch out your legs whenever you need a break.
