You'll meet me on the steps directly outside the main entrance of the Copenhagen City Hall (Rådhuset). Together we'll take a 7.5 km walk around the old cobbled streets, the site of the first settlement, and experience a taste of how Copenhagen should be seen - by boat. Then a breezy walk along the quayside, a look at the royal palace and ending at the lively harbourside at Nyhavn - where I'll point you in the direction of some good eateries. I love to bring history to life as a writer and historian, so be prepared for some rich, raunchy and riveting storytelling :-)
Heather here, the founder of Time Travelling Tales of Copenhagen. I'm not a trained tour guide, so don’t expect to hear the same stories as the other tours. (I'm an author, journalist, and artist) But, after five years also working as a tour guide in Copenhagen, I find that what people are really interested in is to avoid the tourist traps and discover the funny stories behind the facades; the ’warts and all’ visions of the city which you don’t find in the glossy tourist magazines, or from the proud and busy locals. The entertaining tales of heartache, humour, failures and successes, misconduct, and greed. I can walk you through time past palaces, landmarks, dungeons, kitchens, and harboursides to tie in the history that is under your feet - and make you laugh too!

The quest is to discover the heart and the modern pulse of the beautiful old city of Copenhagen. Places that we'll visit include the City Hall, the statue of Hans Christian Andersen, the Tivoli gardens, the site of the first settlement at Christiansborg, a boat ride passing the Opera to Gefions fountain, a glimpse of the Little Mermaid, Kastellet, the queen’s palace, the Marble Cathedral, and the colourful harbourside at Nyhavn - where we end.
I welcome groups large and small. Children under 8-years old are free, babies and toddlers welcome. With group bookings over five, guests are welcome to suggest other time slots to suit - I love big groups!
