Copenhagen: Old Town Guided Walking Tour

1. Copenhagen: Old Town Guided Walking Tour

Looking for the charm of Copenhagen that hides behind cozy street corners where a plethora of quaint, creaky buildings give tribute to a bygone era? Search no further! These old remnants of the city are like finding a needle in a haystack, you have to know where to look. On this small-group tour of Copenhagen's old town, travel back in time and be enchanted as you follow in the footsteps of Copenhagen’s historical roots, revealing the hidden treasures of the city. Walking back through history, you start off by taking a look at Rådhusplatsen, home to Copenhagen City Hall. A step further back in time will bring you to the squares Nytorv and Gammeltorv. You'll journey past the Church of Our Lady (also known as Copenhagen Cathedral), where an Australian commoner became a Crown Princess; look up to the stars like astronomers have done from atop The Round Tower, and take in the colorful facades of the houses surrounding the historical hangout Gråbrødretorv. If you have a sweet tooth like many Danes, you'll enjoy the visit to the Bolsje factory. Before your walking tour ends enjoy a short walk along the main shopping streets, weaving our way in and out of secret alleys that will bring you to a view of Slotsholme. With the impressive Christiansborg Palace, Slotsholmen is a hot spot for both royalty and politicians. There it is, your Copenhagen Old Town Walk – short, sweet and complete.

Excellent excursion that shows Copenhagen. Our guide Stuart was fantastic. Very knowledgeable of the city. I recommend this excursion without hesitation. The meeting point is easy to find (central station opposite the TIVOLI exit) Only negative point, the guide was not identified at the meeting point. No sign of Get your guide like flag or badge that clearly shows us where to go.

Great overview of the city with lots of useful information. Fred, our tour guide, made the morning fun. He provided us lots of useful tips as well as making a great restaurant recommendation for lunch just after the tour finished.

This was a great tour and Papito made it educational and fun. From historical facts and interesting insights, to cozy local places to eat, everything was very informative. Definitely recommend it!

Stuard was a great guide.It was a rainy and windy day and we were only 2 people but he took time to explain everything in detail and he responded to all of my many questions.

Stuart was an excellent guide. He had answers to all of our questions and was able to be informative in a very friendly and amusing way.
