She offered me the option of going on an off the beaten track run to Christiana, which helped me get a real feel for life in Copenhagen. She was very knowledgeable pointing out interesting sights during the run. Afterwards, she provided me... More

Lena guided us in a wonderful running tour throughout Kopenhagen last Saturday. Not only did she manage to show us all major spots in town, she also has a very natural and spontaneous way of telling the stories as if she is talking to friends.

I just came back from a tour with Henrik. I was the only one booked tonight, so it was a private tour and it was great. The night tours make taking pictures a bit tough, but it was still definitely worth it (the evening tour was the only one that fit my schedule). He was very knowledgeable and (somehow) able... More

It's been the best way to see Copenhagen. I didn't realise how diverse and beautiful this city is. Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. The entire experience was great. I highly recommend it to anyone, regardless of their fitness level.

My tour with Lena was absolutely fantastic! Copenhagen is the perfect city for runners and this tour proves that. As this was my first trip to Copenhagen, this tour was able to show me all the major sights as well as run through local parks. It was the perfect way to start my morning in Copenhagen!

Wonderful guide and a lovely start to the day. I appreciated the personal service and the extra warm clothes that Lena provided! The business tour is a great way to squeeze some sightseeing and exercise into a short break - highly recommended!
