Important Information

  • Please check your email the day before the tour for important information. Please note that the number of attractions depends on the selected option. Cruise and National Museum tickets are not included in a 2-hour tour. Pre-booked tickets to the National Museum of Denmark allow you to skip the line to the ticket office but not to the entrance and ticket control. Admission is for permanent exhibitions, including Children’s Museum. Please arrive on time as delays may cause you to miss your cruise departure time. The guide will not join you on the cruise. You will be escorted all the way to the dock and given a cruise ticket with all the necessary information. The cruise audio guide (or the Capitan’s commentary) is available in English, German and Danish. For the best experience, we will limit the group size to 23 guests per guide, so that everyone can get personal attention, ask questions and hear commentary clearly. We can arrange additional guides for larger groups.
