Copenhagen Canal Tour with Skip-the-Line Entry to Tivoli Gardens
Have your camera ready as your boat leaves the dock, and listen to informative commentary from your onboard guide as you pass Copenhagen’s waterfront sights. See The Little Mermaid, the harbor statue that honors Danish author Hans Christian Andersen’s famous folk tale. Learn interesting facts about the statue and hear about Andersen’s life in Copenhagen in the late-19th century.
View the Danish Parliament and other buildings, and watch for Amalienborg Palace — the seat of Denmark’s royals since the 18th century. Look out, too, for the futuristic Black Diamond, home to Copenhagen’s Royal Library and arts hall.
Bob along the Christianshavn canal through the picturesque Christianshaven neighbourhood, one of Copenhagen’s sought-after addresses, and admire the colorful gabled houses that typify the area.
After an hour, end your cruise at Nyhavn or Ved Stranden, and make your way independently to Tivoli Gardens. Armed with your skip-the-line ticket, avoid the main entrance lines and head inside. Brimming with fairground rides and attractions, Tivoli opened in 1843, making it the world’s second-oldest theme park.
Spend however long you want in the park — your ticket lets you stay until the evening closing time. Ride the ferris wheel, take a spin on some of the world’s highest chain carousels, and enjoy white-knuckle rides and gentler attractions at your own pace. When you need a break, there’s plenty else to see and do, from shows and concerts to cafes, restaurants and more.

The tour was nice. The explanation was adequate. The architecture in the older part of town was very nice. Some negatives: The Viator ticket doesn't get you on the boat. You still have to stand on a long line to exchange your Viator ticket for the real one. And if your ticket is date is off a bit because you changed your plans, you have to argue before they will honor it. I got sunburned, as the tour boat was completely exposed. Tivoli is one of those places you must see, but for a mature adult there isn't all that much to do. It is a very pretty place though.
We loved the canal tour. Tivoli Gardens would be great for a family with children, but it was not that meaningful to me...more like an amusement park.
We thoroughly enjoyed this tour and found the canal tour especially fun, informative and family friendly. Our little one loved it. My only complaint that was that the skip the line tickets were not actually skip the line tickets for Tivoli and we had to stand in the normal line, so I found that disappointing and misleading.
The boat tour left on time, was comfortable, and covered many highlights. The only unfortunate part was that it was through a headset that was provided and these things tend to be cheap, uncomfortable, and often only one ear speaker works. However, the commentary was good. Entry tickets to Tivoli meant we could skip the line as advertised which was very good.
Fun boat tour, nice way to see Copenhagen
I thought this was a good combo. The canal tour was very pleasent, a great way to see more architecture. Trivoli Gardens is a must do. It's magical.
good deal... you can pick times and your own schedule troughout the day....
Great way to see Copenhagen.
