Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

The cultural and governmental capital of Denmark, Copenhagen is also one of the most charming and fascinating cities in Northern Europe. It is believed to have been the site of human settlement dating back to the Stone Age, and the city itself is thought to have gotten its start as a fishing village in the 10th century.

You will get an excellent taste of Copenhagen's charms on a full-day panoramic tour that begins when you board a comfortable motorcoach and drive past many of the city's most interesting historical and cultural landmarks. You'll then glide along the canals on a cruise and conclude your sight-filled day at the famous Tivoli Gardens.

Your motorcoach will wind its way through Copenhagen as you make your way to City Hall Square, City Hall and the Glyptotek Art Museum. You will pass Rosenborg Castle, the fairytale Dutch Renaissance structure, built in 1606 as the summer residence of King Christian IV and now a museum holding the Danish crown jewels. In Old Copenhagen, you will see the old Stock Exchange and the picturesque and brightly colored waterfront canal district of Nyhavn, once the home of Hans Christian Andersen. Stop by the opera house for a photo of Amalienborg Palace, the winter residence of the Danish royal family, which is made up of four identical rococo palaces around a spacious octagonal courtyard. You'll stop as well to capture images of the iconic Little Mermaid statue, a commemoration of the city's famous storyteller.

Next, it's on to the magnificent Christiansborg Palace, the seat of the Danish parliament and house of the Queen's Royal Reception Rooms. The Great Hall offers magnificent settings for state dinners hosted by the Queen, and in this very hall, take a glimpse of the tapestries telling more than 1000-years of Danish and international history. As you walk through the palace, Kings and Queens from yesteryear are gazing down at you. No visit to Christiansborg is complete without visiting the throne room. On the balcony of this room, overlooking Copenhagen, Queen Margrethe II was proclaimed regent of the Danish realm in 1972.
Next, hop aboard a modern canal boat for a 50-minute tour of Copenhagen's canals and inner harbor. You will cruise along Christianshavn and Frederiksholm canals, the perfect viewing point for many of the city's historical buildings national landmarks. Nyhavn Canal is lined with 500-year-old step-gabled homes. Your guide will point out the old naval base of Holmen, the Copenhagen Opera House, and the new Royal Library, known as the Black Diamond because of its polished black granite exterior.

You will wind up at the world-famous Tivoli Gardens in the heart of the city, a vital part of Copenhagen's cultural scene. Here, you will be free to explore for the rest of the day at your leisure. The gardens contain one of the world's oldest amusement parks, which opened in 1843 and boasts the oldest still-operating Ferris wheel and wooden roller coaster!

At the conclusion of your tour, you'll re-board your motorcoach for the ride to the airport.
