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.

Our guide, Alia, was so lovely and a great source of information about the history of Copenhagen, its churches, architecture and culture. Our favorite part was seeing where Hans Christian Andersen wrote his fairly tails - from one tiny room preserved inside the famous Magasin department store! A walking tour is the best way to see any city - highly recommend this one!

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.

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.

Excellent experience, very informative and friendly, allowed us to learn a lot of things and to see the city in detail.
