About the tour

Something fishy going on? No place in Denmark lies more than 50 km from the coast and there’s 8,750 km (5,440 miles) of gorgeous coastline surrounding the 406 islands that make up the country. Heather will take us on a fresh jaunt round the centre of Copenhagen. Starting at City Hall and making our way past the Tivoli Gardens amusement park, we will contemplate the importance of the sea, pickled herring and the importance of shipping from the Viking times to the present day. It wouldn't be appropriate to mention the Vikings without also touching on the ancient art of brewing beer... Worryingly, Danes still commonly use the Viking phrase to say a toast - “skål” (skull)! Skål!


Meet your local guide

Heather

We call Heather a guide but she has so many skills it feels like a single label isn't enough. It’d be more accurate to call her a guide, storyteller, journalist, artist, historian and novelist. But then that would be a long title… Packing her personality and the colourful history of Denmark all into one live-stream can only mean a boatful of fun and entertainment. Join her as she shares her love of Copenhagen and her infectious humour with you!

Heather has been guiding since Jul 2012


What to expect

Get ready for something special. We're travelling to Copenhagen with no passport, no plane ticket and no luggage. And yet you'll experience all the sights, sounds and stories with just your laptop, favorite snack and amazing guide.

The tour will last about 30 mins and will be live-streamed by your guide directly from Copenhagen. Forget about slideshows or pre-recorded videos, this is a live broadcast and anything can happen!

While on the tour you’ll be able to see a full screen video of your guide and their surroundings, interact with them and other travellers through the live chat, see where you are in the world on a map and show your appreciation with a tip.


Why are they tip-supported?

We are running these tours on a tip-supported basis to make them as accessible as possible. They are free to book and join, but you have the option to tip the guide during the tour.

Leaving a tip will help support the guides and allow us to offer tours in more places around the world. If you aren't able to leave a tip, then it would be great if you can share the tour with friends and family to spread the word.
