Admire the palaces of Christiansborg and Amalienborg, see the sights of the Nyhavn waterfront, and marvel at the financial centers, such as the Central Bank and the former Copenhagen Stock Exchange.

    Great info about the area, friendly guide. The only thing I’d say is we missed being able to see some of the things she was pointing out because they were on the opposite side of the boat and of course people were sitting there so we couldn’t really see well out of the windows. It was still a nice time.

    Great way to see the key sights of Copenhagen and learn about their history. Would have been nice if we could get off at a couple of key spots like the little mermaid. But apart from that, the experience was nice. Our guide was really informative and made sure we had some good laughs!

    We only had 24 hours to explore Copenhagen and in my opinion the boat tour covered all the Copenhagen basics (even got to see the Mermaid statue!). If you don’t have a lot of time to spend in Copenhagen then this boat tour is definitely a must! Had the best time!
