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.

I bought the combination 48 hour ticket that included 2 canal tours and the 3 routes of the Hop On Hop Off bus. It was well worth the money. I recommend doing the bus routes first to get your bearings before setting out on foot.

Loved the boat trip. Guide gave brief descriptions of buildings monuments and sights along the way in 3 languages. Great way to see areas you may not see if only there for a short time. So many canals and large harbour with lots of history and modern interesting buildings too. Lots of very low bridges so watch your heads! A... More

We were in the city for 10 days and did this on our last day when it was great weather. Fantastic way of getting a sense of this lovely city. The guide was fun yet informative. The que was quite long despite having a Copenhagen Card for free entry so not sure if you can prebook?

Took with my family the Canal tour. Great way to get started and experience Copenhagen from the water. Boarding went fairly quickly at Nyhavn and you get out to the inner habour. Tour takes 1h and in my opinion absolutely worth taking it. We hit a tour which was done in English, Spanish, Danish - that was a down side..... More

This tour runs about an hour and covers all the worthy landmarks. It was a delight to see a city put so much effort into its infrastructure and appearance. Other countries could learn a lot here. I know we were in the tourist area and some areas won't be as good as this, but Denmark impresses us as a great... More

I took canal tour solely without taking bus tour, so I found everything was smooth: Order and pay online then go to the directed station listed in printed ticket. Then the officer will exchange ticket with receipt, and tell when the boat will depart. Soon before I board, boat's guide will tear the receipt and welcomed me on board... So... More

This tour was only ok, nothing really impressive. The staff were not really that informative. I have done other tours that were way better.
