Amazing
Alexis_N
, May 2022
The crew were simply humble and down to earth. It ended up only being myself and another passenger but it it didn’t matter as we all talked. Instead of paying attention to the actual “gems” themselves we all just talked the whole way making it more memorable. I highly recommend them, Peter was the nicest and personable captain!

Please do a canal cruise while in copenhagen, this one is worth the price!

This was a wonderful tour! it's a small group of people so it's easy to get in and out of the boat as well as ask questions. It's a little bit less of a guided tour and more so of point out sites here and there, however the boat guide is able to answer most all questions you ask him/her. Would have loved to see even more! Really appreciate all the recommendations we received for what to do next during our stay while on this tour

Unexpected snow squall in Copenhagen Harbor
Suzanne_H
, Apr 2022
Although we expected the weather to be cold, we were not prepared for the wet snow squall that occurred during our entire trip with Hey Captain. Our captain Emma made the most of a difficult situation, providing a covered canopy, hot drinks gratis, and plenty of blankets for her passengers while she remained exposed to all the elements while steering the boat. If I were to recommend this trip, even in good weather, I would suggest booking the one hour trip, which allows you to see the harbor as well as the obligatory Little Mermaid sculpture at the water's edge. The 2 hours entitled us to “tour” an abandoned WWII military base located on an island - not my idea of interesting.! However, both of my grandsons, 17 & 21 thought the entire trip was worthwhile despite the freezing, wet snow squall. Our trip was on March 30, 2022, and the weather that day, an anomaly.

VERY friendly guy who sailed ⛵ our boat. He was very knowledgeable about the harbor. We saw some interesting things. We got to go onto an abandoned fort in the harbor.

I highly recommend this small boat tour with Mattias! Avoid the crowded ones!

Lovely boat tour with a small group unlike the overcrowded boats swarming the canals. I enjoyed the history and sights that were pointed out. Definitely worth the money. Mattias was a great guide and I highly recommend cruising through the canal with him. Seeing the Nazi Map at the fortress was very interesting and I would definitely book this tour if I were in the city again.

I was fortunate to have a private tour with Jonas - late in the season. Got to see the old city, newer neighborhoods and some out-of-the-way places. Some discussions of history and current conditions thrown in for good measure.

What a fun way to see Copenhagen. Our skipper was wonderful and fun and so easy going. She really gave a lot of information about what we were seeing and took us all around the harbor area. We really enjoyed the 2 hours.

The tour guide was exceptional. Very knowledgeable about Copenhagen. Absolutely fantastic. Very worthwhile taking this tour. Recommend the 2 hour one. It goes out to the old fort. I didn't want it to end.

Nice boat tour

The small boat tour with 10 passengers was fun. We explored several canals. Our young guide didn't have the fund of knowledge of a professional, but he was very charming. We don't regret going on the 2 hour tour, but the 1 hour tour covers just about all of the territory of the 2 hour tour.

We loved this tour..our boat captain Sebastian (Seabass) was very informative about all the local areas with suggestions about what to do later. This is nice because you get to meet everyone have some wine or beer & relax. I have some mobility issues & he made sure I got in & out of the boat safely. Would highly recommend this

Hey Captain - Steffan

Thank you Steffan for the amazing experience! It truly was a highlight of our trip and we can’t thank you enough for your hospitality while on our tour. The small group made it very personal and we enjoyed the company of the London family joining us. Exploring Copenhagen hidden gems gave us a good understanding of Copenhagen lifestyle. For anyone considering this tour, I highly recommend the price for what you get. The tour is truly tailored to the interest of your small group.

A grey day and it a lot of rain but who cares? We were very Cody wrapped up in blankets, had a glass of wine and met very nice people. Steve made our day. We really enjoyed the tour

Definitely the best canal tour in Copenhagen... maybe the world
Jacquelyn_G
, Aug 2018
Our family of 3 signed up for this tour as it seemed from the description to not be the same fully loaded boat tour with a recorded script. This tour was probably the most informative canal tour we have been on in Europe. The captain was a local who knew the answer to every question from all 10 of us on the boat. Definitely a welcome change from the canal cruise we took in Amsterdam.
