Go beyond the postcards and discover the city's hidden gems with a private guide


If you have already seen the main sights of Copenhagen, are planning to explore them on your own, or are looking to go beyond the postcards and experience some of the city's hidden gems, this is the tour for you.

This intriguing 4-hour walking tour will take you through the historic cobblestone streets of the oldest part of Copenhagen. Start with Copenhageners' favorite morning treat, a freshly-baked cinnamon roll from the oldest bakery in the city, then set off to discover the places most tourists might miss and hear the fascinating stories behind them.

A Recent Review of this tour

Caroline was a fantastic guide. Very knowledgeable and friendly. She was also very flexible in structuring our tour to address some physical limitations of certain members of our group. I would recommend her without any reservation .
