Description: For once, it's the tourists who get it right – locals almost never...
For once, it's the tourists who get it right – locals almost never experience Copenhagen in this way, and they're missing out on a treat, experiencing the old city centre from a different perspective and seeing almost all the downtown attractions from the water. Canal Tours Copenhagen offer four different tours of the city, ranging from 60-75 minutes in duration, both with or without a guide. They leave from Gammel Strand and Nyhavn, with longer ones taking you as far as the Little Mermaid and out into the Oeresund Channel to the tiny fortress island of Trekroner. On Sunday and Thursday evenings during summer months there's even a 90-minute jazz cruise, with live music aboard the boat.Armed with a strong fleet of 16 comfortable boats, six of which are heated and covered, the Canal Tours takes you through a guided journey along the city s harbor and canal. At least one of the multilingual staff members is always onboard, enlightening guests on the picturesque surroundings. Choose from the various tours available. And for something unusual, go for the Dinner Cruise, where you can enjoy a delectable meal as you cruise along the waters. And if you have charted your own itinerary, then just go ahead and rent one of our boats.

We got on the "Grand Tour" from Gammel Strand right as the boat was about to leave. As a result, all the seats around the edges were filled; it's difficult to take photos from the middle of the boat. If you're looking to take photos or want the best view, be sure to arrive when one of them is first... More

We chose the two hour hop on hop off tour from Nyhavn. As a last day trip it was perfect. Very relaxing to pass our time before going to the airport. The commentary was informative and not intrusive. Free earphones are provided and you could leave one ear in so as not to miss the commentary. Christianshavn was lovely and... More

The bus trip was a little disappointing. The bus was packed , hot and not that comfortable. It was difficult to hear the commentary at times. Overall the guides lacked any control. Forced to buy lunch on board as told there was no time to stop for it.

Far better than the bus tours. You can hear well and get a decent view of the city. Relaxing and enjoyable

We bought our tickets at the dead end of the Nyhavn Canal for a 1.5 hour canal tour, boarded immediately, and it was just fine. The sound system was decent. The information presented was interesting. It's a pretty place. Can't remember what it cost, but it seemed decent value considering nearly nothing in Scandinavia is a bargain.

My wife and I started our 3 days in Copenhagen by taking the 1.5 hour jazz tour on a Sunday evening. This was not a "sight-seeing" tour per se, but for lovers of jazz it is an excellent way to combine live music with a view of the architecture and life in general along the canals. There are four different... More

We did this on our Copenhagen card. Pretty good way to see the Copenhagen canals. Only disappointing thing is the drive-by at the Little Mermaid as you are behind her. If you want a good photo of her you won't get one from the boat. All you see is tourists looking back at you! The guide here was a great... More

I took the 1 hour boat tour with no stops, since we didn't have much time. It was just what we needed! The guide was excellent. We saw all the interesting places around the canal. It was fun.

We really enjoyed this tour. It was about an hour and our guide easily switched between Danish, English and Italian. We loved seeing Copenhagen from the water, exploring many of the side canals you wouldn't otherwise be able to get to. Really liked seeing Christiania from the water and getting some insights into this incredibly interesting and beautiful town. I... More

Very inexpensive, confortable seats. Huge value for your money, you can bring beers on board. Do not seat all the way at the back since you will get engine noise and fumes. Also the explanation of the city given by a recording is not very good. Hard to hear.
