    Our guide was Phil a very nice guy and very helpful for any explanation, we were a little worried about the cold but with the blankets made available it wasn't a problem. The tour is very interesting and you have the opportunity to see places that you would hardly be able to see on foot. I highly recommend this experience!

    Great way to see the sights of Copenhagen from a different angle. We were taken over to an old abandoned military base on an island which was really cool to look round and explore. It was a very social event which we weren't a huge fan of, purely because we were there to learn about copenhagen and its history rather than the lives of the people on the boat with us. We would have liked it to have been more of a tour with detailed explanations given on different areas of interest and local history instead of the tour guide asking us about what Covid is like in our country.

    Unfortunately we had rain that day. The boor was perfectly equipped for this weather with roof tarpaulins. We were 7 people on board and saw a lot of the surroundings of Copenhagen. Among other things, the guide gave us an impressive explanation of the planned construction areas that are still water today, but want to be fully developed in 10 years. Very interesting and recommendable tour.
