very good tour. Most enjoyable
The Hop On Hop Off bus enabled us to see a good portion of Copenhagen while we were in the city prior to a cruise. The only thing I would have done differently is to include the canal tour and we added this later. Switching routes is easy and well posted. Drivers also provide the information you need to decide whether or not to get off at a stop.

We were on a cruise ship and had to be back by a certain time, so there wasn't much time to really do much other than ride on the bus. We did get off and change bus lines but had to allow plenty of time to get back to the ship. It was confusing to get back to the ship as you couldn't hear the driver very well and we were lucky that we asked what he said because you have to get off the bus that you think is going to take you back to the cruise line but have to change busses. Glad we allowed enough time to do this. Other than that it was good.

We love doing this in a new city. It gives us history in addition to the lay of the land. Easy to use. Unfortunately we did not get a chance to to the boat tour because we needed to shop for clothes since our luggage was LOST! If your teens start to fall asleep on the ride get off walk around grab and ice-cream and get back on! They will have a renewed excitement for the tour.

We always really enjoy this way to see the cities we visit and this one was no exception. It is a great, thorough, and comprehensive method of getting to know a new city, with the ability to decide where you would like to spend more time (or not). It gives you a nice geographical perspective and layout of this beautiful city, which is very helpful if it is location never visited before. The price is right too! I would highly recommend this as a nice introduction to Copenhagen for any tourists.
