Owner description: 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.

“Very good way of seeing the city”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2013

It's a very good of seeing the city, and it's not expensive at all for the service it offers. You can tour around the city for 24 hours on the ship (althought you have to keep in mind that in the wintertime, the last boat is at 5pm). You can hop on and off in four different stops, so just plan the places you want to see and jump on the boat!

As the weather was excellent, very hot actual for Scandinavian countries, we thought that a cruise would be a pleasant way to see Copenhagen's buildings.And i was right ! The cruice was about an hour and i enjoyed every minute.
I recommend it, if you have the time.

“Awesome for taking pictures”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2013 via mobile

It was very sunny when we went on the boat, which was really nice because I can imagine that it can get really cold on the water. You will see all the important parts of Copenhagen and have the possibility to take some really good pictures. You can also figure out which places you might like to visit later on. We had a very nice guide, she was funny. It was quite nervtiggeling to drive past those low bridges. It's a little expensive thow. (75 kkr pp.)

“a nice way to see the city ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 4, 2013 via mobile

We did the tour as one of the first things in Copenhagen. There are a few different tour companies that you can choose from. We took the cheaper one (40kr compared to 70 for most others) and it was good. We probably saw all the major sights and got a great overview of the city. Really cool experience and also relaxing if you've been on your feet a lot. Only negative aspects was the guide who struggled a bit with the languages and therefore skipped some (maybe irrelevant) parts of the information. Depending on when you do the tour, be prepared for a really chilling breeze.
