About the company: 

Copenhagen Free Walking Tours is a local collective of tour guides. small, independent union of freelance walking tour guides. In order to fund our operations, all guides pay a marketing fee to “Guided Tours Copenhagen ApS,” based on the number of guests who participate in the tour. This marketing fee pays for our website, administrative costs, marketing, and our presence on third party booking sites. Currently, our marketing fee for the Grand Tour of Copenhagen is 15 DKK per guest. Our Christianshavn Tour and Classical tour of Copenhagen have a marketing fee of 7.5 DKK per guest. You can help keep this fee down by booking directly through our website (booking button nearby??) and using guide-provided QR codes to check out our recommendations. Our guides are freelancers and receive no pay outside of guest contributions. Happily, we love what we do, and that love and experience makes us wonderful guides, many of whom have made a full-time living for over ten years.

We have booked the 3 hours long tour and despite the cold and rainy weather we had a great time. Daniel is well informed and provides interesting Information while adding his own charme and humor. Handing out his umbrella to guests was a nice gesture.
Everyone has to decide on their tip considering many circumstances but people should also consider the cost of life in Copenhagen and compare to paid tours. Lets be fair and keep this in mind.

In all my travels (120 cities around the world), never have I imagined myself participating, let alone enjoying guided tours! Till today, I used to think they’re dull and full of information that isn’t my cup of tea! Jack’s tour, on the other hand, has completely blown me away! I had so much fun and learnt so much!!!! It felt like there’s more to the meaningless stack of bricks people pose next to or take photos of🧱 Jack’s brought Copenhagen to life, for me! I felt like the city spoke to me! His humour, self-duplication and just overall vibe did not fail to impress! *Jack Five head* Thanks Jack!!

Tour 2: Thanks Wayne for an equally brilliant tour in the afternoon!! It was great and also full of information.
