Description

There are so many interesting, beautiful, fun sites to see in Copenhagen. Many are fairly close together, yet far enough apart to make this Segway tour the perfect way to see the all the best in a relatively short amount of time.

You'll be provided with a top-quality Segway, a helmet and a radio with earpiece. With expert instruction from your experienced guide and a little practice, you'll soon be comfortable with your new ride and ready to roll.

There's a lot to see, so let's get rolling! The tour sets out from Copenhagen's beautiful waterfront, free of cars and buses. You'll glide your way to some of the city's most iconic locations as your local guide narrates along the route. Your guide will make stops along the way for some great photo opportunities

The Maritime Monument pays homage to those in the Danish Merchant Navy who lost their lives in World War One. Most popular of all sites in Copenhagen is, perhaps, The Little Mermaid Statue, from the beloved book of the same name, written by famous Dane, Hans Christensen Anderson. We'll pay a visit to the impressive Amalienborg Palace, home of the Danish Royal Family and stop to see the beautiful monument to Princess Marie of Orléans.

The imposing Gefion Fountain is a site to behold. A base of large oxen are driven from above by the Norse Goddess Gefion. Throw a coin in the fountain and make a wish!

The gliding continues, past the Marble Church, known for its rococo architecture, the sleek contemporary Royal Danish Playhouse and the architectural wonder that is the Copenhagen Opera House, all en route to Kings New Square. Located at the end of a pedestrian (and Segway) mall, with cobblestone streets and and equestrian statue at its center, this is the largest and most important square in the city.

About half way through the tour, we'll make a stop at a welcoming cafe, where you'll find special discount pricing for Segway guests.

The Citadel is not open to vehicular traffic but you'll roll right in on your Segway! See this still-functioning military base that is built in the unique Danish architectural style.

We'll pass by the world-famous Tivoli Gardens, with its amusement park and flower gardens. Opened in 1843, it is the second oldest amusement park in the world.

Odd Fellow Mansion, The Royal Danish Library, City Hall Square and the Danish Parliament are just a few more of the many fascinating stops along the way.

As the tour comes full circle, you'll receive a complimentary beverage and a Segway souvenir before you make your way back to the ship.

Shore Excursions

By: Laurie


Reviewed on: 30 Mar 2017

In Cozumel we enjoyed the snorkeling that we did off a catamaran. The staff was friendly, very professional, and helpful with my first time snorkeling daughter. Grand Cayman we went to sting ray city with a trip and snorkeling. Staff and trip was amazing, crew very helpful and fun. in Jamaica we did a Dunn's River Falls excursion and private beach. We had fun but were not impressed with the staff, and their timeliness (waited around alot),

MOSTLY EXCEPTIONAL

By: WENDY from MIAMI


Reviewed on: 04 Jul 2018

We did a private whale watching tour which was incredible. The train ride in Sitka which we were not going to do at first was spectacular. Scenery, comfort - a wonderful way to see the area and spend our time. We signed up for a Mendenhall Glacier trip plus Salmon bake. This one was so very commercial and although the glacier and waterfall were above our expectations, a short time was given to walk there and view. This left out two of our party as they could not move as fast as needed to return in the time frame of one hour. Then the BAKE- the food was marginally ok. They were out of the most important SMORES ingredients. It is crazy but that was advertised (we were willing to break our diets ) and we looked forward to them and then disappointed. The people were nice. the area was pretty but that one I would strongly advise friend not to sign up for.

Great experience. The tours of the Louvre, and Notrre Dame were great. The guide even helped me try to get Eiffel tower admission tickets switched after I had booked them on the wrong date.

Summer Hawaii Cruise

By: CGreene


Reviewed on: 17 Aug 2018

I arranged a church group of 55 for a Hawaiian cruise. This was our first time to use ShoreTrips and we had VIP treatment as compared to the mega busloads arriving from the ship/hotels excursions. Many times we had a site all to ourselves and then were leaving when the larger groups arrived. With all of the excitement about the active volcano, we weren't sure what to expect when we arrived on the Big Island. Those taking the helicopter ride raved about the experience and others were amazed to truly explore, taste and see that there is much more to her than only the volcanos. Every guide was lovely and professional, in fact, when I asked my group of to each submit 2 of their personal favorite photos, one was a guide on the last day in Honolulu for the private Pearl Harbor/airport excursion. It was nice to choose a selection of excursions for my group and ShoreTrips truly worked hard to make every trip come to fruition. Highly recommend all types of excursions with them.
