It is free to join our walking tours. At the end of the tour you get to decide the amount you want to pay your guide.
Your local tour guide prefers their payment in local currency, Danish Crowns. We recommend paying via credit card, since it makes it easier for us to manage our taxes. Most of our guides accept credit cards for your convenience, you can ask your guide at the beginning of the tour if the do accept payment via credit card. If they do NOT accept credit card, they will let you know where to find the nearest cash machine so you can pay in Danish Crowns. Some guides accept Euros and US Dollars, just confirm with your tour guide when you start the tour.
In order to continue running these tours in Copenhagen, all guides pay a marketing fee to Guided Tours Copenhagen ApS. based on the number of guests who participated in the tour. This marketing fee is used to pay for our advertisement, websites, flyers, umbrellas, nametags and to run our administration.
The current marketing fee for the Grand Tour of Copenhagen is 15 DKK (2,01 euro) per guest .The Classical Tour of Copenhagen and The Christianshavn Tour the marketing fee is 7.50 DKK (1,00 euro) per guest.
We often have children and little ones joining our walking tours and most of them seem to have a great time meeting the guides and listening to our stories of Copenhagen.
Unfortunately, due to logistical constraints, we cannot enter buildings on the walking tour.
You are very welcome to join the tours in a wheelchair. Just be aware that a lot of the streets we go through have cobblestones, the pavements in the city centre are usually quite narrow and some routes can include steps.
The Christianshavn tour does not enter Christiania, but finishes outside in the general area. We do talk about the culture and history surrounding Christiania. You are welcome to walk through Christiania on your own. If you are looking at doing a Christiania tour you can contact The Tour Guides Group of Christiania:Christiania Rundvisning. They do tours of Christiania throughout the year, but you need to check their website for precise times, starting location and booking requirements.
