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.

What a great way to spend an hour, without walking, to see Copenhagen. Had a fantastic tour guide who provided knowledge and humour throughout the tour. It was fascinating to see areas not accessible any other way, really enjoyed it.More

An one hour tour takes you under bridges and through a portion of Copenhagen's water ways. Very nicely narrated in several languages it got me off my feet while still touring this beautiful area. Only about $12.00 USD per person.More

blend of charming old buildings and bold new
architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well
as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner
city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which
consists of three buildings, two of which are new and
situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and

Hi I would like to know if you pre-book tickets online whether you then have to collect them from Nyhavn and thus start your journey there or could get on the hop on hop off bus anywhere with a pre-bought ticket? Also do you know if I get the hop on hop off boat ticket whether this allows me to go on the grand tours as well? Thanks
