    The tour guide was very good and delivered information in a warm and friendly manner . However, it was hard to hear the audio if you were sat outside at the back. May benefit from some additional speakers at the back of the boat (and maybe a few blankets. Can get very cold in November!)

    The trip was quite entertaining. You saw a lot that I later walked back to. It gives you a rough overview of the city center. In between, only the headphones failed. The plug no longer had a good contact... You should line up early so that you get a good seat - at the back or at the front. Then you can take nice photos and you have a better view.

    My recommendation is to board if possible at the first stop, Ved Stranden, as by Nyhavn all the side seats inside are taken, as are the best seats on the outside deck. That said, it is a worthwhile and enjoyable hour; unfortunately, ours was in the rain and/or under grey skies.
