COVID-19 UPDATE: All tours in English and Spanish are cancelled beginning 12 March 2020 to 12 April 2020.
As a locally managed tour operator, we feel that it is our responsibility to adhere to the recommendations of the Danish Authority to mitigate the spread of the Covid-19. We are following the recommended 14 day self-quarantine. We have to extend this date to the 12th of April due to the travel restrictions to Denmark. We love showing you around our beautiful city but we must place our duty of ensuring the health and safety of everyone at the highest priority. We appreciate your understanding and we are expecting to have walking tours on the 27th of March. Thank you for continued support of the free walking tour concept in cities around the world!
