Highlights include Christianshavn, Copenhagen Opera House, the famous Little Mermaid Statue, and Amalienborg Palace.
  • Live commentary on Copenhagen's culture and history
  • A relaxing cruise of the canals, covering lots of ground in a short time
  • Get different views and photo angles than you would from land
  • Multiple departure times throughout the day to fit your schedule
What to Expect
Book your preferred departure time. Cruises leave throughout the day, making it easy to fit this tour into your schedule. Step aboard, sit on the deck or inside the saloon, and then relax and enjoy the ride. Traveling the canals allows you to cover a lot of ground in a short amount of time and get different views and photo angles than you would if traveling by land. You’ll pass must-see highlights, such as Amalienborg Palace, Copenhagen Opera House, the cobblestone-paved Christianshavn neighborhood, the island of Slotsholmen, the Old Stock Exchange, and the spires of the Church of Our Savior. As you travel, listen to engaging commentary from the guide, covering topics from ancient history to modern culture; walk away with knowledge and little-known facts that you otherwise would not be privy to. Customize the end of your tour by choosing drop-off in either Gammel Strand or Nyhavn.

Very interesting tour. The guide Christian (I hope I spelled it right) was funny and knowledgeable. Good value and Copenhagen pretty much covered. Probably the first thing you should do when you arrive at Copenhagen - from then you can explore it yourself, after the guide has

I did not plan on Copenhagen Canal Tour but I accidentally, passing through the city, saw the ship so I decided to give it a try. I paid for the ticket about 13 euros, which is a good price for this experience. The guide was interesting, though he didn't talk too much.

Very enjoyable way to sightsee. We sat inside because it was cold, but when it started to rain the windows were fogging up, so we had to go outside which was fine - much better view. I can recommend doing this trip.
