We booked the bus & boat tour on the same day as we were only in Copenhagen for 3 days and unfortunately it rained most of the time. At least that's how we saw the most important sights since we did the Classic Tour. All drivers were very nice and helpful. Only once was a stop announced, but we couldn't get up from our seats that quickly, so we drove on. The only thing that could be improved would be a table with the arrival times at each stop, because they only said "every half hour". The guide on the boat named Patrick was very friendly and explained everything in a fun way! We personally liked the boat tour even better than the bus tour.

I think the canal trip is top class! Comparable to Amsterdam. Also very good accompaniment in German and English. The other three routes by bus are also very interesting. There you can explore the whole city very well and decide where you want to get off.

all good it is worth buying it to have an overview of all the main attractions to visit and then like us decide to visit the one that most interested us. I personally did not like the purple path.

Includes transfers from the outbound cruise terminal. We can highly recommend booking a boat tour.

Everything worked out great and was worth it in any case. Bus drivers were very nice
