Copenhagen and The Secrets of Danish Life
*This experience runs daily except Sunday
7 hours of hygge-filled Copenhagen
Visiting 1 country: Denmark
This is a great introduction to your Danish experience, offering you a whole day of fun in the city! Over the course of seven hours, your local guide will take you under their knowledgeable wing and introduce you to the secrets of Danish life, talk to you about Copenhagen’s fascinating royal history and let you in on the city’s best-kept food and drink secrets. By the end of the day you’ll know the city like a local!
All Senses Engaged
Your tour will take you through the oldest parts of the city. You will experience cobblestone-filled streets, timber-framed houses and green refuges of calm amongst the urban sprawl.
This tour is not just about seeing the city’s greatest hits but tasting them too! So get ready to engage all your senses as we sample some Danish delights; from world-renowned pastries to delicious chocolate and coffee.
We’ll also stop to enjoy a spot of lunch from one of our favourite street food vendors before continuing our exploration of the city.
Next up, we’ll jump on the bus, just like the locals do, which will take us to enjoy some of Copenhagen’s famous historical sites. A stunning walk on the banks of the Game of Thrones-worthy Citadel will reward you with amazing views of the city. As we go, your guide will enthrall you with tales about Copenhagen (and Denmark’s) rise and demise throughout history.
Hear secret insider stories about the Royal Guards at Amalienborg — the Royal Palace that only those who have been in the guard know about. Here, you will also have the chance to feast on royal treats that have the distinction of being made by purveyors to the royal house.
There will be ample time for snapping some stunning images (your guide can help with this), that are sure to make your social media followers jealous.
The historical highlights continue with the Rosenborg and Christiansborg palaces, the latter of which is better known as the Parliament building. Here we will stop to tell you about former kings with delusions of grandeur and mental insanity, as well as the inappropriate love triangles they engaged in… We’ll also talk a little about the Danish welfare system, which provides a very high degree of trust, which in turn has helped us earn the title as some of the happiest people in the world.
And of course no Copenhagen sightseeing tour is complete without saying hello to the Little Mermaid and finding out why everything is not as it seems with her. So put on your best walking shoes, bring your camera and get ready for a lot of fun, Copenhagen-style!
