Copenhagen Small Group Grand Tour
From $105.24

Appreciating Copenhagen’s many highlights can be difficult on a self-led tour. Explore the city by foot, canal boat, and bicycle for intimate insight into its culture and heritage on a small-group tour, and discover attractions including the Little Mermaid statue, Danish Royal Palace, and Strøget. Learn about the city’s history from your guide, and benefit from the small-group size for a more personalized experience.

What to Expect


  • 8-hour comprehensive tour of Copenhagen 
  • Explore on foot, by bike, and by boat 
  • See the Copenhagen waterfront, the Little Mermaid Statue, and Europe's longest pedestrian shopping street 
  • Pedal through Copenhagen as a local
  • Small group of 10 participants or fewer ensures personalized attention

What You Can Expect

Meet your guide and start exploring Europe's longest pedestrian shopping street, Strøget. Pause at many of the city's most famous sights, as well as some hidden gems like lesser-known churches and secret gardens. Your next mode of transportation is a canal cruise, which will glide down the city's canals and allow you a great view of the waterfront. Cruise past landmarks such as the famous Little Mermaid statue, the Opera House, and the Danish Royal Palace.  Back on land, you'll get fitted with a bike for a ride outside the confines of the well-trodden city center. Your 8-hour tour ends back in center city Copenhagen.

Great day with Michael

We had a Monday to fill before our cruise on the Zuiderdam, so we booked this tour through Trip Advisor. Had some trepidation, since the only info we had was to meet at a street corner. We arrived and a local coffee vendor assured us...More

Yes, the biking is on mostly flat terrain. No, you don't have to be a really fit biker, most anyone should be able to manage the biking because the pace is quite slow.
