I went here as part of a group of 20 or so spilt into two person canoes and highly recommend. At first it is a little terrifying as you make your way into the harbour amongst the boat traffic but when you get used to it it's incredible. The sites along the water include the opera house, a view of the palace, some of the nicest apartment buildings I've ever seen and ships ranging from quaint little boats to a collection of tall ships. The water is crystal clear in many places and there's nothing better than pausing in a canoe and breaking open a cold cider. Top attraction, proper work out, if you go to the city and don't do it you're an idiot

This is a great way to see around the Christianshaven district of Copenhagen and get out on to the main canal and see the Opera House etc. Its a refreshing change from the normal tourist activities on a city break. Our guide was fantastic - he spoke great English and it we exchanged a lot of conversation just about living in the city, local customs, history and other places to visit. He's not a tourist guide though and is there primarily for your safety and to get you around the tour in one piece and keep you away from the river buses and canal tours (the lazy option!!!). There were only six of us on the tour, two Danes (from Copenhagen who wanted to see their city from another angle!) and our family of four. You don't need any experience but it could be frustrating for others if you were clueless! Its not overly physical and people of all ages should be able to manage the 2 hour trip without difficulty. Top tip - bring a change of clothes. You will get wet and cold on all but the hottest of days. The restaurant outside the launch area were fantastic and let us use the toilets (and warm our hands on their dryers!!!). We stopped there for lunch and had a great local beer and some open sandwiches. Very traditional and full of flavour. Back to the kayaking though - great thanks to Jesper who made this a memorable event.

We had an excellent tour this morning. 4 of us in two twin kayaks led by a lovely guide. We got wet, the weather was grey with a biting wind and a short shower. It was brilliant. Needless to say this is not a history lesson, the guiding is designed to get you safely around the harbour with no accidents, which we accomplished. All that said, we learnt from our guide who was kind and engaging, we could happily have hung out with him for another two hours.

I had my mum and brother visit me from Australia, decided to take them and my girlfriend on a kayaking tour of Copenhagen. Despite the weather (which was bad) we met our Danish guide down at the wharf near christanhavn and we set off. With a group of about 10 people, it was soon obvious that there were a few beginners in the group, 2 Swiss girls in particular were struggling badly at the back of the group. I hung back with them as I couldn't stand to let these girls get pushed about by the passing boats and wind, and I spent most of my tour (2 hours) pulling them out from submerged wharfs or pointing their kayak in the right direction. This is ok! Not everyone can kayak. However, at no point did our guide engage the group to talk about the landmarks or history we were passing, nor did he take the time to help out the strugglers or even give me a thumbs up.... With this tour costing more than 300kr per person we were left feeling ripped off. This could of been a great day out, but was ruined by unprofessionalism and a lack of care towards clients and a lack of knowledge. Do the canal tour by boat and save on money.
