it was an amazing day! Got to see the major sites. Would like to see it extended and add the Tivoli gardens to it. We passed it twice but not on itinerary. We were fortunate to see the changing of the guard. Bring Danish Krona. The reason not giving it a 4- rather a 4.5 is that we were a group of 4. So we were in taxis for part of the trip. The first one a van had no a/c and it was stuffy - the back windows didn't open and he did open up the front passenger window to get air in. It wasn't a hot day by any means, but still needed air. The second van had ac. The tour guide was very knowledgable and really enjoyed taking us around. I would also like to see a different time that would have allowed coordination with another Viator Tour of the canal. They overlapped so it was one or the other. Perhaps the tour could end where the canal tour would begin? Just a suggestion But well worth it and must see for first visit to Copenhagen to get a thorough tour of the city and walk around also for 45 minutes - lunch on your own to see the main market square and street. Also there in time to see the mid-day parade -like a Bahamanian Junkanoo parade would be good comparison
