Attended a weekend course (IPP2) at Kayak Republic, which was a really good experience. Very professional instructors with a good understanding of how to stepwise build up skills and confidence. I had no idea how much I could learn in just two days. Of course, the training ground also contributed to a joyful weekend, the port of Copenhagen offers a perfect scene for urban kayaking. And the famous moules frites lunch at Kayakbar was tasteful and energizing.

The 2 houres mornig City Tour was great!! It's also good for beginner. Xenia is a good guide and gave us many informations about Copenhagen. It is a nice way to see the buildings and houseboats from the water...
Also the kayak bar has good meals and a nice atmosphere.

We booked the City Tour. Great idea to see the city from a different perspective. Unfortunately, the experience didn‘t hold up to what it promised. We did not have any prior experience (which is ok according to the website) and only got some minimal instructions on paddeling after asking the guide, there was no proper briefing. We struggeled with paddeling but did not get any feedback on how to do it better. Consequently, we fell behind the group all the time and did not catch any of the information on the city by the guide if there were any (which we are not sure of). Later during our vacation, we did another kayak tour. This was a completely different experience as we were carefuly instructed before the tour and also well taken care of during paddeling by the guide. We cannot really recommend this tour for people without prior experience or expecting information on the city. This is a pity because we really like the idea of sightseing from this perpespective. On the upside, the bar and restaurant are great!

Really bad experience with them. The day before we where supposed to go kayaking, a message was broadcast on the radio that there had been so much rain in Copenhagen that the canals were flooded and there were now cholera bacteria in the water, whereby staying in the water was a health hazard. My friend and I tried that day to call them without success. The day after where we where supposed to go kayaking (19/8) we went there to talk to them, to which we were told we should write an email and then we would get our money back. It is now 4 weeks ago and we have sent two emails and called and talked to them 3 times but we have not received a response, other than on the phone where they have said that they would answer our email and it was of course regrettable they had not answered our mail. Such a waist of Money. I can far from recommend them. Rather spend your money somewhere else, because should you end up in the same situation as us, you will never see that money again, nor should you expect them to respond to your emails if you try. Was it an opportunity to give negative stars I would have done it 🤷🏼‍♀️

If you have any rules regarding the possibility to cancel a booking, you should be informed when the booking was made. Futhermore the lack you response via the e-mail is horrific.

I tried to cancel a booking more than 4 days before. First they informed me that a refund wasn’t possible, then I informed them that didn’t appear on website and since I hadn’t received the service I paid for, I expected a full refund.
They haven’t responded since (3+ days)

At last, I checked if the time I booked was still available after I tried to cancel. And it was.
So it not like I prevented anyone else from booking at that time.

We spent 3 days in Copenhagen at the end of September and this was the best thing we did! The guys were so helpful, borrowing wetsuits and all the equipment was so easy with free lockers for a change of clothes at the centre.

We had a Monday morning tour with only 2 other people and our guide Mel gave us enough information about all the sites we passed. He also took us down some of the lesser known parts of the city with lots of stories and helpful advice. This was such a unique way to see the city and the views are amazing. This was just over 2 hours which was ample time to see everything without getting too tired, would highly recommend this to anyone visiting Copenhagen (providing you are fit enough to kayak for 2 hours!)

We went kayaking with Kayak Republic; the staff were very nice, they had a small life jacket for our daughter, and the route was pleasant. They were also very helpful when we made our booking.

However, two aspects of the trip were disappointing. The Kayak Republic website says the guide will provide information about what we would be seeing. We did stop a few times, and the guide talked a little, but that was minimal. It certainly didn’t live up to the website’s description.

Next, there were two women in our group who had not been kayaking before. They needed extra guidance on how to manage their kayak, which the guide didn’t adequately provide. Their hands were too close together on the paddle; they were digging too deep in the water. They worked much harder than they needed to, got soaking wet, and were always last. The guide checked in with them, “How are you ladies doing”? And he towed theie kayak behind his for a while, but he didn’t offer the five minutes worth of advice that would have allowed them to paddle properly and have a good time.

For these reasons I can’t give Kayak Repiblic a high rating.

Hi Kathy! Thanks for the feedback and we appreciate the constructive criticism. We passed your notes to our instructor who was on the tour that day. We do start every tour with the instructions on how to paddle, but of course, that is not enough sometimes and people struggle even after spending time with them. That, as a result, takes the time away from the group and talking about the city. That being said, we try our best to work a way for everyone to make most of the tour, no matter the skill level. Best Regards

good fun, specially on good weather. do ensure that if you never did kayaking before, you get a good briefing ahead of kayaking. we did not get a lot of briefing and it was not so fun.

rental equipment such as wetsuit, etc, is a lil bit worn out.
