New Beers and Friends!
Amazing tour! Jam was a great tour guide! Loved his fun facts about the neighborhood, beers, and Copenhagen in general. He did a great job of bringing the group together and showing us a great, local-feeling time. I highly recommend this!
Cool and relaxed way, viewing the district around Vesterbro
Great and urban way spending a 3 hour walk in Copenhagen seeing new spots and on top combined with beer tasting and a great guide Morten being very comitted, whats not to like!
Great way to know Copenhagen
Jens was our guide and we had a really great time. It was informative and interesting without a pre-scripted agenda. We learned many things - not only as it relates to the area but many other facts about Denmark and Copenhagen. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone wanting something off the beaten path. Jens was great!!

I booked the beer and vice tour in vestebro as a birthday present for my husband on the last day of our break in Copenhagen. I thought it would be a different way of ending our holiday . I was right it was different informative and thoroughly enjoyable. Our guide Lars put us at our ease immediately and was a mine of information. The pubs we we visited were all different and all interesting in their own way and Lars had stories about them all. The area itself was one we probably would have missed on our own and that would have been a shame. So thank you Lars for a wonderful afternoon which flew by. I only wish I had booked the tour at the beginning of our time in Copenhagen as Lars had so much advice as to what to see and we missed a lot,still perhaps next time.

Karl gave us a great tour of Westerbro - lots of hidden gems and seedy underbelly to explore. He knew his stuff, and the beer was really just more refreshment than 'tasting'. You'll cover plenty of ground and find the local bars you definitely wouldn't see on your own. Great way to spend a leisurely afternoon in the city.

A must do
Mie was wonderful! Her walking 🚶 was a fabulous look at the real Copenhagen way of life with just the right amount of perfectly cozy sights, tasty local food and interesting information. She really wanted us to share her love of Copenhagen and we did! She also helped us make decisions about what to see while here and how to best do it complete with a marked map. So happy we took the tour!
Amazing tour
This is not usual sight seeing tour. You will get to know the city from very local point of view which is great. Get ready for amazing stories of city's history and today's life. And chocolate tasting was yummy :) 10/10

Fantastic way to spend a morning!
Mie was fantastic and the tour was great. Got to see a few gems off the beaten track and enjoy some amazing pastries! We felt we had a much better grasp of hygge when we were done. Maybe we even managed to bring a bit home with us!
Had a beautiful day on the Hygge & happiness tour
My friend and myself don't often like "touristy" walking tours, so the Hygge and happiness tour was a perfect way for use to experience and learn about the Danish people from an actual Danish person. Groups are small, and ours was just the 2 of us so we had a private tour! Mie, our guide, was friendly, knowledgeable and funny. The tour is well constructed showing both the big, important landmarks in Copenhagen, but also lesser known little secrets about the city. By the end of tour you will feel you know so much more about Danish culture and Hygge, and can't help but walking away happier!

Great Way to See Norrebro
I had a great time on this tour - my guides were super friendly and knowledgeable, very easy to talk to. There were intermittent showers so we ducked into a few bars to escape the rain - great to hang out and chat. I had been staying in Norrebro and the tour was a perfect way to see some of the streets I had missed on my own walkabout over the weekend. Highly recommended!
