Excellent way to see the city. Great audio guide and the buses were very close to schedule!


September 2015

The best way to see most of the beauties in Copenhagen. Highly Recommended.


September 2015

Great tour slightly spoilt by a traffic jam caused by some protest march which locked the traffic in and around the city centre. The commentary on board was really good.


September 2015

This was the best hop-on hop-off tour I have ever been on. I loved that they would stop and let you get out for 5-10 minutes to get some pictures and then could get right back on without waiting.

If your short on time this is a great way to see the City. The best part was taking the Bus that goes to the Carlsberg Brewery. We spent over 2 hours there.

August 2015

This was a good tour, especially since the meeting points were really easy spots on the map.


August 2015

The length of the Mermaid Tour and the stops along the way was great! As we were staying at the Tivoli Gardens Hotel it was very convenient since it was one of the stops. Highly recommended if you only have a day to spend in Copenhagen.

This is a good tour only we didn't really hop-off. But it was nice to see the whole city on the tour and see the main areas.

Great time!!! Really enjoyed the city. Staff went over and above to be helpful. We were leaving on a cruise ship and didn't understand to transfer to different bus so driver and manager worked to get us to the cruise ship on time!!!!

This tour was very informative, we saw lots of sights and the bus was very comfortable. Our main reason for taking this tour was to learn something of Copenhagen and for my husband to see the Little Mermaid. We had a very enjoyable time. We would recommend this to anyone who wanted to see Copenhagen and to be able to get off and spend time at different locations and they hop back on to continue. It was great

I think the hop on and hop off was very good. You can just stop in places designated to go and then hop up again to go to the next. You haveget to see the places at your own phase with no pressure or stress trying to catch up with the tour bus and guide. Gives you time to go around no hurry.

This bus venue worked very well for us. It stopped at all the sights we wanted to see.

Excellent tour. Very helpful tour operators. The other companies don't provide ride back to the ship.

Ideal way to get around Copenhagen, see all the sights then go back again and look at each thing you are interested in. We upgraded to include a canal trip and this only cost an extra 20kr each about 4.00 and this gave a different view of what we had seen from the bus.

A great tour!


September 2014

Gave a god overview of the City. Our cruise ship was moored very near to the little Mermaid so being quite fit we found that we could have walked around the City easily.
