    Hidden Gems is right! We went with Hey Captain Tours and our guide was Peter. Overall it was a fantastic communal experience. We got to see some awesome architecture and interesting views that aren't what you would normally see. Learning history about the harbor and the various locations was so much fun (and there's beer!)

    It was a great experience. Our guide Johann was very personable and you could tell from his face that he enjoyed the job. It was also very nice and interesting that there was a small round of introductions. I would recommend anyone vacationing in Copenhagen to do the 2 hour round trip.

    Patrick was our Captain. He greeted us by name and was very friendly. Encouraged us to introduce ourselves (8 of us), so that we knew who we were traveling with. He was very knowledgeable of Copenhagen. He had lots of unique information to share. Sun screen provided, and drinks could be purchased. We went places no other tours would ever go! Lots of history was also shared! I even took over driving the boat so Patrick could relax and share more stories with the passengers. Don’t ever take one of those large canal boat cruises, take ‘Hey Captain’ river Cruise!
