Excellent three hour cycling tour covering many districts and sights of Copenhagen. I highly recommend taking this tour with Alex. He is a lot of fun and extremely knowledgeable about the city.

I was a great experience! Better than the walking tour we did the day before. The bikes aren’t the best ones but completely fine for a 3 hours tour.
