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.

Approximately an hour long canal tour. The guides were very informative about the area and buildings. You could sit either on the open air end of the boat or under the covered area which was also heated and definately the better option in November. Got see much more than we would have on foot. We paid 130 dkk, approximately £12... More

We chose this tour specifically as they said they were heated (as opposed the other operators). However with doors open front and back and radiators barely on, this was still a cold experience. The tour guide was good and we enjoyed seeing the town from the water.

The places we visited were nice. As I took the 1520 hours tour (last one for the day), I did not make any stops or I would have to make my own way back. Other timings would work for hop on hop off. The audio in English wasn't very clear for some parts, especially in the beginning. Then it gets... More

We really enjoyed the Grand Tour around the canals of Copenhagen. The boat goes past many fascinating building and sites, as well as visiting the harbour and gives interesting historical information about Copenhagen. We have completed several canal tours in European cities and this would be one of the best. Free with the Copenhagen Card.

With the luxury of time (and great weather) in Copenhagen we had great value from our 48 hour HOHO boat and bus tickets. Found bus services reliable and did the route on all three lines. The sunshine and enjoyment of the canals were such that we did both the HOHO route and the canal tour - excellent, but probably less... More

Get on boat and sit on left side facing the pier (boat turns and lots to view doing this), friendly multi lingual guide who tried humour reasonably successfully. Appeared knowledgable and you seem (on the Grand Tour) to see old and new and the back of the little mermaid (as she faces shore). there's open and enclosed area (pull back... More
