Having pre-booked our place on their website (a quick and simple process), we met just outside the steps of the Town Hall a few minutes before the start time of 10.30am.

There were about 75 participants and these were quickly and efficiently divided into three roughly equal groups, so about 25 people in each walking group. This proved to be a good number, not too crowded, a manageable size as we walked and easy to hear the guide when we stopped and he talked.

Our guide, Wayne was knowledgeable, entertaining, friendly and spoke clearly.

There is quite a bit of walking, as you would expect on a 2.5 - 3 hour tour, but the pace wasn’t too quick.

There was a comfort break at around the 2 hour mark.

The walk covered not just the history of the city and it’s landmarks and inhabitants, but also touched on Danish culture and the way of life, which was interesting.

Wayne made an effort to chat to different individual members of the group as we walked between stops and that gave you a chance to ask him questions if you wanted to.

Although a free walking tour, it is of course expected that you “tip” the guide at the end with what you think the tour was worth. The guides are self employed, they don’t receive a salary and this what they do for a living (i.e. job), and the cost of living in Denmark is relatively high.

You don’t need Danish Krone to pay.

We were off a cruise ship and only had cash in the form of Euros and Dollars. Both were welcomed, but you can also pay by credit card or debit card, as the guides also carry a card machine - so again, easy to pay and well organised.

This was our first free walking tour and we were impressed and will consider it again in other cities.

We were more than happy with our experience in Copenhagen and would highly recommend this tour.

We highly recommend doing this tour our guide Laura was very knowledgeable and happy to answer any questions and provide recommendations of restaurant’s to visit whilst you are in Copenhagen. The tour was easy walking so you don’t have to be super fit and helps you get a good lay of the land to be able to wander around after the tour. We took in many of the main sites including Amalienborg where the Queen of Denmark resides. Definitely helped us get an understanding of getting around Copenhagen, as well as some of the history.

Did the Grand Tour on 21/07 whilst in Copenhagen for a few days to get a feel for the city.
Cannot recommend this tour enough, it was around 2.5 hours but walked at a very manageable pace with lots of stops and was so interesting and informative. Our guide was Jarod who was extremely knowledgable, friendly and engaging and made the tour lively and fun throughout for everyone involved. We learned lots about the city and it’s history and got good recommendations for things to see and places to eat which were much appreciated. Whilst this is a free walking tour, all of the guides do work for tips which we were more than happy to give based on the quality of the tour we received and how much we enjoyed it!

The free walking tour of Copenhagen was not only the worst experience I had on my first visit in Denmark, but probably one of the worst traveling experiences ever.
In order to plan my time in Copenhagen in the most efficient way I have booked three different tours for myself and four of my friends with whom I traveled together. A friend of a friend was traveling to Copenhagen at the same time so I booked the tour for them as well, although I haven’t known them before my arrival to Copenhagen. Before the start of the tour the tour-guides Daniel and Rikke told us that 8 of us are the same group and that they don’t allow groups of more than 5 people so we cannot be on the tour but we should book private tour and pay approximately 20€ each. By saying that they were very aggressive and accused us of cheating “the system”. That was not the case since we weren’t the part of the same group, we weren’t even from the same country and we tried to explain that to the guide, but their communication was not kind and with respect but on the contrary, they made us feel like we broke some law and tried to cheat them. They haven’t allowed us to join the tour even when the other group of 3 people decided to leave the tour so the other 5 can join the tour. The company even put us on their “blacklist” so we could not join any of their other tours.
We found that very strange since the concept of the free walking tours are to provide the tourists with the most amazing experience and not to argue with people who gave them their trust and precious time and are ready to pay for their service. We arrived to Copenhagen on vacation to get to know the city and their culture and we had very unpleasant treatment. Luckily we joined the tour organized by the other company and the next few days in Copenhagen have just shown that this behavior isn’t a standard for Denmark but only a rare bad exemption. However, if you don’t want to get stressed and to have bad experience while in wonderful Copenhagen it is better to avoid free walking tours organized by this company.

We did the Grand Tour of Copenhagen and loved it. The tour was well organised and very popular (we split off into different groups though so wasn’t overcrowded), so I’d recommend booking in advance on the website. The route covered a lot of the main sites in the city, but also other attractions that you wouldn’t necessarily notice or subsequently visit by just walking around. Rikke, our guide, was excellent: she was very knowledgable and friendly. She gave us lots of information and a real insight into the Danish culture, and was always happy to take questions. Would 100% recommend doing this during your time in Copenhagen.

We did the free walking tour with Jarod on Thursday (26 Aug) and he made it the absolutely funniest and most interesting experience! It was the best. His voice is loud enough for a large crowd and he has a way of including everyone with funny remarks and jokes. The best part was that he took us to the square where the changing of the guards happened, knew just the right place to stand and the right time to come and even commented everything in the best way. A great laugh! He was the best!
P.S.: You don’t need cash to tip him at the end of the tour, he has a credit card reader.

We had Jarod as our tour guide and it was a totally fun and hilarious walking tour. He has lots of funny anecdotes about the city and is joking with everyone in the group. Copenhagen is full of smiling people and Jarod definitively adds to the happiness all around. His energy is contagious. I recommend this tour because he points out personal favorites and shows you spots you maybe wouldn't find on your own. Loved it!

I highly recommend doing a walking tour when you visit Copenhagen, it's a relatively small city so you really get to see and learn a lot in just a couple of hours. Our guide, Penny, was absolutely lovely and shared so much knowledge about the city and a lot of fun facts that make the experience so much more interesting. I suggest doing the tour at the beginning of your trip, so you get to know the place and decide what you want to further explore.

On december, we joined the "Grand Tour of Copenhagen" (with guide Rikke) and the "Christianshavn Tour" (with Daniel). It was great to get to know about the rich history of the places we visited and learn a little about the different cultures and people living in this very charming and interesting city. In our opinion, the Grand Tour goes by more interesting places and is a more complete tour, though we also enjoyed Christianshavn. We would recommend to take the tours that happens during the daylight, because it's better to see the places, take pictures and walk around.
Besides all the knowledge they carry, both guides were really welcoming and adorable, never losing a chance to make a funny comment and doing their best for a joyful walk. An extra: the guides accepted credit card for the tips, what was helpful for us.
We had a great time and highly recommend the tours with these guys!

Insightful, educational and so much fun. Instead of a boring tour and a guide reciting random facts the Copenhagen Free Walking Tour is an interesting and quite unique experience. Our tour guide Jarod provided us with astonishing and insightful information concerning Danish history, politics, religion, culture etc. We learned and laughed a lot on the Copenhagen Grand Tour as well as the Christianshaven Tour. If you´re looking for an interactive, informative and funny tour through the city we highly recommend!! (Thank you Jarod for making sure we´ll never forget the Barbiegirl song :)
