The visual sense is a the centre of this tour design. And there is much to catch; Copenhagen is justly famous for a mix of architectural styles, for pockets of undisturbed historical details and for innovative additions such as harbour baths and bicycle bridges.

Experiencing the world through a lens is what I do when travelling. So I know what to look for when tailoring your tour, and I realise that we cannot keep to a tight schedule - seeing sometimes takes time!

See suggested itinerary below and contact me if you prefer this private tour to be customised.

Oh! The photo at the top: One day I cycled past a magnolia tree and nearly fell off my bicycle when I realised that someone had decorated it with christmas ornaments… Blobs of shimmering colours amongst the flowers. Sometimes you're just lucky.


In the city centre: The harbour front, the national bank, Christiansborg Castle, the city court, the cathedral, the market halls.

Afterwards, we will go to my neighbourhood to see where people actually live. Enjoy the street life and visit a few court yards.

Do you know of specific places you want to have a shot at? I will incorporate them in the tour design.

If you add extra time, we can add another city district and/or lengthen the harbour front stretch.

This tour can also be done on bicycle in order to cover many more sights.

Meeting Location + Tour Duration

Drop off at Oceankaj Cruise Terminal is subject to taxi fee.

What’s Included

Guiding, planning and recommendations are included in this tour.

Estimated Local Cash Needed

200 DKK - This is entirely optional but if you feel for it, you could get a café lunch and a coffee for 200 Danish Kroner.

Food, beverages, shopping. Depending on any customisations; public transportation and entry fee to a museum.


Under Danish law, I cannot act as driver while guiding. I can arrange transport + driver or use public transport and/or taxis for tours.

A Recent Review of this tour

I communicated my interest in photography to Sofie prior to the tour. It was obvious she put a lot of thought into how to customize the tour for me. It was not just someone walking on autopilot. Highly recommend her.
