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 only had a short time in Copenhagen, and we wanted to see as much as we could in that time. We went on the canal tour, which is a big flat boat that travels around the main water-accessible sites. This was a great way to spend an hour, and you saw all of the key sites in an efficient... More

We enjoyed the canal tour very much. It was relaxing (not crowded because it was late March), and we enjoyed seeing the sights from the canals including Andersen's home, the palaces, opera house, etc. The guide was very friendly and and we learned a lot about the city and its history as we cruised around. One of the points of... More

It was a lovely day and I think taking a canal cruise is a great way to see parts of the city. However, the audio guide is limited in that it mentions some things about places but doesn't go into a lot of detail. Also the guide on the tour often talked over the commentary by telling you not to... More

I booked this through our hotel (Scandic Front). I was advised to go in the afternoon as it's the Queen's birthday & part of the route is closed this morning. Services are advertised to run from 10:00 until 16:00 (on the literature & on the website!!). When I arrived before 15:30 I was informed the last bus left at 15:00... More

Great way to explore the canals of Copenhagen and see some of the old buildings and areas of the city in a different angle. It goes along nyhavn, opera house, little mermaid and stock exchange and so much more. It's great to see all this way. Bring a beer and a snack and it's worth the hour sitting in a... More

We had planned to do a boat tour on our holiday, and when we saw the last of the day (5pm) was about to depart on our first day in Copenhagen, we decided to take it then. We got to see a lot of the sights from the boat. It can get chillier at the beginning of the trip when... More

If weather allows, this trip is it to be missed. I have been with my family and you get to see many major points of interest on the way, besides the sailing experience. It is very simple, just get on a line by Nyhavn, by tickets and get on the next available boat.

My parents visited me in November. So I decided to take them for the city tour using HO-HO bus (just to avoid rainy and cold weather). I bought the combined tour tickets for bus and canal from this company, the driver told me to go to the green coloured bus. When the bus left the first site they showed us... More
