Recommended length of visit: 2-3 hours
Owner description: Copenhagen Free Walking Tours invites you to join our 3 different Free Walking Tours through the heart of Copenhagen. We suggest starting with our Grand Tour of Copenhagen, taking in the famous city landmarks like Christiansborg Palace, Nyhavn and Amalienborg Palace while we discuss history, culture, people, food and so much more on an easy 3 hour walk through the city center of Copenhagen. This tour starts everyday at 10 am, 11am and 3pm* from the steps of the Town Hall (Radhuspladsen). Just keep your eyes peeled for the smiliest guides in town, wearing green name badges and holding bright neon green umbrellas. You can't miss us! Join us in Spanish at 11am or 3pm everyday at the steps of the Town Hall! We also have two alternative tours - the Christianshavn Tour, and the Classical Tour. Both tours run for 90 minutes and see distinct neighbourhoods in Copenhagen that we do not cover on the Grand Tour. We also work closely with Pub Crawl Copenhagen! Come and drink with us! Please check out our website for seasonal start times, and locations. Booking in advance is not required but very much appreciated.

“Igor is the best!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2013

Great tour with a great tour guide. As a graduate school student on a budget, I really appreciated having the free walking tours in Copenhagen, Zurich, and Prague during my travels because I could pay what I could afford to pay rather than going on tours that charge exorbitant fees. Our guide, Igor, was really passionate about everything he talked about on the tour, so that made the experience even more fun.

“Great first thing to do in Copenhagen!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013

This was the first thing we did upon arriving in Copenhagen. Our tour guide, Igor, was very friendly and enthusiastic about Copenhagen, and his English was excellent. He knew a lot about the history of Copenhagen, as well as area attractions (and had a few restaurant recommendations when we asked him at the end of the tour.)

We covered A LOT of ground on the tour and it was a great orientation to the city. The tour was advertised as being 3 hours and actually ended up being 3.5 hours because of all the information Igor had to share with us (probably the longest free tour we've been on of the half-dozen we've done in various cities.) He did stop for a brief bathroom and snack break in the middle of the tour, which was a good opportunity to grab one of the much-talked about hotdogs from a local stand.

Definitely worth the time and deserving of a generous tip, in my opinion.

“The On and Off Bus”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013

We toured Copenhagen using one of the "on and off" buses available at various locations and walking about. I must say we absolutely fell in love with Copenhagen! The City has a unique vibe and what might be termed a "Goldilocks" city- not too old, not too new, not too large, but not too small, relaxed, but vibrant- just right. The people are great and very helpful. Good palaces to see, good churches to visit, a great (and inexpensive) canal tour is also available. GREAT food- definitely do a Danish Smorgishbord. Good shopping in may areas and oh, that Danish modern design! Cabs are reasonable and the cabbies are honest. Traffic is a big problem in Copenhagen, so reserve plenty of time if going by care or using a bus. Also food prices are very high- a decent restaurant can easily ending up costing $100 a plate or more for dinner, including a 19% VAT. When you see Copenhagen, your soul will smile, and perhaps understand why the Danes don't complain, even though they are the most heavily taxed people on Earth.

Charesse was informed and enthusiastic. She not only gave a good, entertaining commentary at our stops along the tour but was able to answer questions without hesitation and with a historical perspective. Highly reommended.
