    Make your own way to the cruise jetty in central Copenhagen in time for your preferred departure slot.

    Step aboard your boat and find a comfortable spot in the saloon or on the outdoor deck for your 1-hour journey. Then, sit back and take in the picturesque sights as you glide along Copenhagen’s canals and harbor waters. These pretty waterways weave through the history-steeped center, so every turn and twist reveals a new, photo-worthy sight.

    Watch for must-sees such as the Little Mermaid statue, inspired by the Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale; and as you cruise, learn about Copenhagen’s rich history from the onboard guide, who will share illuminating facts and background on the sights.
Drift by the Amalienborg Palace – the winter residence of Denmark’s royals since the 1700s – and pass Copenhagen Opera House, a stunning contemporary building that stands imperiously on the harborside.
Cruise around the pretty canals of Christianshavn, with its cobbled streets, pastel-colored houses and old warehouses. Admire the area’s lovely landmarks, such as the Church of Our Saviour with its winding-staircase spire, and hear how King Christian IV established the district in the 1600s as part of his plans to fortify Copenhagen. 

Pass a host of other famous buildings, and snap pictures of the Old Stock Exchange, famous for its unusual spire, as you sail by the island of Slotsholmen in the city center.

    Finally, return to the starting jetty at either Nyhavn or Gammel Strand, where your cruise finishes.

    Well worth the ticket price
    , Sep 2021
    Beautiful scenery. Pleasant guide. Helpful narration. The canals are intriguing, and Cooenhagen is quite lovely.
    They let us down.
    , Sep 2021
    Not good at all, the tour operators cancelled it the day before which didn’t give me time to plan for anything else. Kind of screwed things up for us, could have planned other things but their late notice messed that up for us.

    Poor trip
    , Aug 2021
    Poor trip, a boat without conditions to a rainy day. A bad guide with a poor english and a terrible sound system.
    Lovely stay
    , Aug 2021
    We had a lovely stay the staff were so friendly and helpful. Will definitely stay again on our next trip.
    Superb funny and informative live commentary
    , Mar 2020
    A really lovely way to see some of the highlights of this beautiful city thanks to Janos’ very clever, informative and extremely funny live commentary in three languages - no less! Interesting facts, historical information and clever jokes and puns flowed off Janos’ tongue for the whole hour! Great tour and v highly recommended!
    See the city and stay dry
    , Mar 2020
    This is a fun and easy way to get an overview of the city worth as bit of history thrown in. Audio is in multiple languages. Good even on a rainy day.

    Really great.
    , Jan 2020
    Really great tour. The road had to be changed due to high water level but it did not impact the overall quality of the trip and the team was super friendly and carring.
    Good ride around Copenhagen harbour
    , Dec 2019
    Booked online, and collected the ticket at the boarding point, which was a smooth experience. Tour departed on time, and the guide filled it with interesting and funny facts throughout the journey! Would definitely recommend it as one of the first things to do since we get details of a lot of the other sights that may be on everybody's 'to-do' / 'to-see' list.
