Sightseeing tours

In Copenhagen you will find that there are a ton of different ways to experience the city. Walk, drive, sail, bike or eat your way through Copenhagen. With a private local guide and some good story-telling, you will learn more about the city than on your own. Go with a classic tour of the major attractions in Copenhagen or find a themed tour to match your specific area of interest. We also recommend our guides to TV & film locations and Copenhagen bike rentals.

Tourist guides belonging to The Association of Authorised Tourist Guides wear the official badge or ID card depicting the three towers featured in the coat of arms of the city of Copenhagen. Authorised guides have attained a university course in guiding from Roskilde University in Denmark. The degree course is a one-year, full-time adult education diploma course, which includes Danish history, cross-cultural understanding, guiding techniques, tour planning skills and story telling. The emblem ensures you correct information and the best possible experience on a tour of the city. The members speak 27 different languages between them. Many run their own tour companies, some of them on this list, but you can also book a tour through The Association of Authorised Tourist Guides' website.
