Guided Tours in Copenhagen

Copenhagen offers many attractions, and you can spend a long time in Denmark's capital. The tours can take from 2-8 hours or 1, 2 or 3 days depending on what you want to see, how many castles or museums you want to see inside, and what transportation you prefer.


The centre of Copenhagen is not bigger than you can walk around - and it is quite safe to walk around in Copenhagen.

I offer walking tours, tours by coaches or public bus or train, boat tours, or tours in hired cars.
