3-hour Copenhagen Private City Tour

Enjoy a comprehensive overview of Copenhagen's fascinating history and must-see sites with your private tour guide

ABOUT THE 3-hour Copenhagen Private City Tour

This 3-hour private tour will introduce you to Copenhagen's top attractions and walk you through the history of the Danish capital. Your local private tour guide will take you to must-see sights such as Tivoli Gardens, the Danish Royal Palace, Nyhavnharbour, Strøget shopping mile, and much more!


A behind-the-scenes look at the ‘City of Spires’

Stunning water-side architecture and a wealth of cultural achievement are what have made Copenhagen into the world-class European destination it is today. The home of Hans Christian Andersen, Tivoli Gardens, and the Danish royal family, this 3-hour private tour will dive into each of these points of national pride - as well as exploring the struggle of the Danish Resistance against Nazi Occupation in WWII.

You’ll pass world-famous Nyhavnharbour, the Town Hall and the ‘Folketinget’ (the stunning Danish Parliament building), as well as taking in lesser-known gems such as the Copenhagen Opera House and the Strøget shopping mile.

See Copenhagen at your own pace

Covering the key sights and attractions that Copenhagen has to offer, this 3-hour tour allows for a much more flexible itinerary. More time spent together with your expert local guide means more time to explore the city properly.
