Description

This walking tour combines our extremely popular Hygge & Happiness tour with an afternoon jam-packed with Copenhagen’s most iconic sites and tastes. Your local guide is a bona fide Copenhagener who is super excited to share their knowledge of Danish culture with you, as well as local historical secrets that you won’t find in any guidebooks! And because our tours are for small groups only, your guide has plenty of time to answer any questions you may have. Your tour takes you through the oldest parts of the city, where you experience hidden gems in the form of cobblestone-filled streets, timber-framed houses, and green refuges of calm amongst the urban sprawl. This Copenhagen walking tour is not just about seeing the city’s greatest hits but tasting them too! So, get ready to engage all of your senses as we sample some Danish delights, from world-renowned pastries to delicious chocolate and coffee. We also stop to enjoy a spot of lunch from one of our favourite street food vendors before continuing our exploration of the city. Next up, we jump on the bus, just like the locals do, which takes us to enjoy some of Copenhagen’s famous historical sites. A stunning walk on the banks of the Game of Thrones-worthy Citadel rewards you with amazing views of the city. As we go, your guide enthralls you with tales about Copenhagen (and Denmark’s) rise and demise throughout history. Hear secret insider stories about the Royal Guards at Amalienborg — the Royal Palace — that only those who have been in the guard know about. There is ample time for snapping some stunning images (your guide can help with this), that are sure to make your social media followers jealous. The historical highlights continue with the Rosenborg and Christiansborg palaces, the latter of which is better known as the Parliament building. Here, we stop to tell you about former kings with delusions of grandeur and mental insanity, as well as the inappropriate love triangles they engaged in… We also talk a little about the Danish welfare system, which provides a very high degree of trust, which in turn has helped us earn the title as some of the happiest people in the world. And of course, no Copenhagen sightseeing tour is complete without saying hello to the Little Mermaid and finding out why everything is not as it seems with her. So put on your best walking shoes, bring your camera, and get ready for a lot of fun, Copenhagen-style! Before you go, don’t forget to ask your guide for tips on what else to see, do, and eat in our awesome city.
