On wet and windy day (7 April 2022), we still managed to enjoy a near 2-hour trip with Rasmus (Raz). Sadly no-one else had booked, so it wasn't so much of a "social sailing" that Hey Captain like to promote.

That said we had the covered boat all to ourselves and had a wonderful tour from a very friendly, knowledgeable and engaging Captain Raz. Felt like we were sailing with a friend. Saw so much of the City and learnt a great deal too!

Everyone quayside was also really engaging and welcoming - it was a great introduction to the city on our first day.

Thanks

It is probably the best boat tour we've had so far. The "Social sailing" is a fantastic concept because you get to tour the canals and have some relevant information as in any touristic activities, but the setting is relaxed and at least on our boat everybody was very nice. The staff was amazing, you can really tell they enjoy and believe in what they are doing. We travelled with 3 teenagers, and they also said it was the best tourist activity on the trip so far. Additionally, since the weather changes so much, don't worry, the boats can open a roof in case of rain and you are provided with blankets as well as the chance to get drinks on board.

“Caesar” was our “new captain” and did such a great job of connecting with all 5 passengers. Peter was the supervising captain and was also friendly and fun. The weather was perfect and we really enjoyed our 1 hour canal cruise. We had considered the canal cruise on the boats that hold like 100 passengers, but couldn’t stomach it. The GoBoat self rentals were toooo slow for my husband. Hey Captain was the perfect blend of size and comfort.We only wish we would have booked the 2 hour tour!

It was supposed to be a one hour tour exploring canals and historic sites of Copenhagen. Turned out that our guide (Max) could not answer basic questions and sailed around showing expensive houses and apartment buildings. We were not on a house hunting expedition and did not care about fine dining. We were not told what we gonna see in the beginning, looked like everything was his improvisation, we did not learn anything useful except for a navy ship nearby. In the end we were unexpectedly charged for two beers we drank. What a rip off!

I was a bit disappointed with this experience. The guides were kind and friendly, but it was basically just a boat ride around the harbor/bay — we didn’t go through the city canals as the itinerary indicated. You still see some historical elements of the city (abandoned naval fortress), it just wasn’t what I was expecting based on the title of the activity.

Emma took us for a spin around the Copenhagen waters and it was beyond amazing. She is from Christianshavn, which we went through and she made that part of the trip very personal, telling us about her neighbourhood and how she grew up there. Her personal story and continued through-out the tour and it made people on board open up.

The flexibility and hospitality of the HeyCaptain crew was further demonstrated as one of the guest showed severe signs of hangryness. The crew quickly picked up on this potential risk. With a quick and clearly rehearsed manoeuvre they found a box of left-over Danish pastry in the fridge and eliminated a potentially dangerous situation.

Thank you for an amazing local experience !

Great bike tour! The bikes were well maintained and the seats comfortable. We were able to see many of the main Copenhagen highlights. Our guide was well informed and open to additional tour stops provided there was enough time. I would recommend asking to stop at the small castle/church and fountain near the Little Mermaid statue, as this was not built into the tour.

We were a bit disappointed with this tour. Our guide, although friendly, did not give as much information about things we were seeing as we would have liked. Just wasn't a very fun experience and a few guests were nodding off during the trip. It wasn't a bad experience, just not what we were hoping for unfortunately.

The boat and tour were beautiful. Our group was very small and social, which enhanced the experience. The guide is light on historical facts but does give lots of information about modern Copenhagen and the architecture. We paired the boat trip with a walking tour and felt like were learned a ton about the city.

Our guide was exceptionally friendly. He worked very hard to get to know everyone and to make the group socialize.

Basically this was just a boat ride around the bay. The people were lovely but couldn’t answer basic questions about the history of the city or the sites they were showing us. I mean, if you are going to point out artwork, please know who the artist was. We got off the boat only once and I found the whole experience to be terribly underwhelming. No hidden gems here.
