    My son and I are from Australia. We have heard about the boat trip from friends and told it was a must. We loved the experience. The trip was full of adventures and we saw Copenhagen from a different angel. The tour guide was fabulous and very informative. She had a great sense of humour of humour which made our journey so lovely.

    Have nothing to complain about the sailing trip and the guide. The ticketing system was easy. But I miss one thing on the website - that I can see if it is an open or closed boat that is sailing. Probably not possible, but nice to be able to choose between the option of open or closed boat

    Arrived 15minutes early to only one family in front of us. A boat arrived fairly soon after this so was able to get on quickly and get a good seat! Adequate amount of information given by the tour guide based on the time available. Notice on when to duck under the bridges too! Overall for the price it is a good hour spent in Copenhagen.
