DFDS Canal Tours “takes you through the old and the new parts of Copenhagen”. Their pleasant guides will tell you all about the sights and everything you need to know about Denmark and its history. All the tours are in Danish and English. Oftentimes a little French, Spanish, Italian, German and Portuguese are used. There are also exclusive Spanish and Italian tours, purely in those languages.
