Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Join your guide in central Copenhagen and set off on your half-day food tour of the city’s food repertoire and gastronomic heritage.

Having had a fairly staid culinary reputation, the Danish capital has recently emerged as a foodie's paradise, as local chefs turn to light, seasonal and innovative ingredients, and zingy, minimalist flavors rather than the stodgier, comfort Danish staples of the past.

Stroll around the buzzing streets and let your guide show you the locals’ best-loved eateries. The city’s boundary-pushing food scene is in a continuous state of flux, so food stops may vary on the day of your tour. The places mentioned simply give you an idea as to the types of eateries and outlets you might call at.

Work your way to the Torvehallerne indoor market and pause at Arla Unika, Copenhagen’s trendiest cheese vendor. Sample some artisan cheeses created in collaboration with Michelin-star-awarded chefs, and peruse the goodies. Then, head for the Bornholm Shop to run your taste buds past some caramels, preserve and licorice. Meander around the pretty Copenhagen Botanical Gardens and taste some crisp, Danish apple wine, before calling at the Aamanns café – where the customers dig into smørrebrød — tasty, rye sourdough bread open sandwiches topped with mostly organic and free-range ingredients. Saunter on to Nørrebro Bryghus, a beer connoisseur’s café and restaurant. Taste three home-brewed beers, and then sink your teeth into an organic hotdog bite at the Ecological Hotdog Stand.Finally, head for Summerbird Chocolate. One of Copenhagen’s most innovative makers of luxury chocolate and candy, this upscale chocolatier receives rave reviews from locals for its hugely moreish flødeboller – chocolate-encased marshmallows.After getting a real flavor of Copenhagen’s culinary delights, your tour ends back at the start point.

Maria is a true local that had all the inside knowledge one would want on this tour! We started at the old market square and went to several more stops! Micro brewery included! Everything was wonderful and truly enjoyed the background info and history with all the stops. We also stopped at a candy store that is the last one to make the candy by hand! Organic and seasonal are a big thing here so that was a bonus as well! A must do while here!

I had a great time on this tour- 4 hours during which we visited 8 different stops for snacks/food as well as seeing several beautiful areas of the city. The food was delicious, great portion sizes, I ended the tour feeling completely full but not over-stuffed! Susie was our guide and she was fantastic- amazing knowledge of not only the food scene, but also the city and its history. Highly recommend!

My husband and I take food tours in cities al lover the world and this was the most expensive one we have ever taken and also the most disappointing! Our guide was very nice and knew a lot about the food culture of Copenhagen, but told us virtually nothing about the history or architecture or other things that are usually part of these tours. The food we were given was ridiculous for the $130 USD this tour cost. We started at the food market where we had lots of tastes of cheese and delicacies but the portions were all TINY and all right in the food market where most visitors would go themselves on their own anyway The point of these tours is to see different places that tourists would not usually know or find. We then walked all around and to the Botanical Gardens where we tasted honey on a stick that the tour guide brought along in her bag! We did not even go to a store or a restaurant but ate it from her purse ion a wooden stick in the park. Then after more walking we had a nice smorgasbord sampling at a restaurant. This was the only place we had a sit down tasting and we were asked to hurry up to keep on schedule . We then walked forever to a brewery where we were to have 3 sampling of beer and IT WAS CLOSED FOR RENOVATIONS The guide knew nothing about it and DID NOTHING ABOUT IT! WE DID NOT GO SOMEWHERE ELSE INSTEAD. We just kept walking more and stopped at a candy factory that does not make the candy at the time we came and we were given ONE HARD CANDY to taste after an hour walk to there. Then we went for a famous hot dog at an outdoor hot dog stand -the kind they have all over the city. Not even at a restaurant.! We had now walked for about 2 hours without a place to sit down and everyone was exhausted and had to sit on some sidewalk benches to eat our hot dogs. We then continued walking back to the Food Market where the dessert we got was one piece of chocolate -again at the Food Market! Save your money-don't give it to this company or Viator and spend the $130 on a nice meal in Copenhagen!

Toured with Olivia who was great. Gave us a good history of the vendors and their foods. The tastes we had were very good and essentially gave you a very good lunch so have a light breakfast. We did not have dinner after this tour.

This four hour food tour is an excellent way to learn something about Copenhagen, experience multiple samples of authentic Danish and local cuisine, and see a good bit of Copenhagen’s core. Our guide (whose name unfortunately I did not get proper spelling) was doing her first tour and no one would have known it had she not told us until the end. Definitely take this tour in one of Europe’s most beautiful cities.

This tour was the highlight of my trip: excellent food, an excellent walking route and great company. The host, Alex, was so friendly and knowledgeable. The food stops are delicious and considering it’s quite a lengthy tour, I would say it is excellent value. Thank you!
