What is a kids meal

It is possible to book a ticket for children (3-12) in our calendar. The kids meals are mainly similar to the adults, but all alcoholic beverages are either removed or replaced with suitable non alcoholic options.

How do I find the meeting place?

All of our daily Copenhagen food tours, EXCEPT the West End Tour, start from Torvehallerne, Frederiksborggade 21, the entrance to hall 2, the one facing towards Frederiksborggade. The closest stall is Brioche d'ore, the French bistro. The guide will be holding a sign with Foodtours.eu and will look for you at all entrances at the start of the tour. The West End Tour will start from Vesterbrogade 49 at the stairs to the church.

I missed my tour, now what?

Tickets are not refundable and as we book the food in advance it is not possible to simply turn up for the next one. If you missed your tour please contact us and we will do our best to help you arrange another. This will involve a fee of 80 kr for the two hour tour and 250 kr for the four hour tour.

What happens if I am late for my tour?

The guide will wait up to 15 minutes at which point we will start the tour. If you know that you will be late please try calling us at 50 123 645. The tour starts inside the Market halls, in hall 1, so you can always look around for us. Tickets are not refundable after the tour has started.

Do you arrange private tours?

Yes. Please send your wishes to info.cph@foodtours.eu and we can arrange a private tour. Up to 100 people can participate in a private tour, but with more than 20 people we will arrange to have more than one group, each with a separate guide, starting and ending at the same time. This makes for a better experience.

I live in the city. Is the tour still good for me?

Absolutely. As someone who lives here in Copenhagen you will be learning about the food culture and cuisine that surrounds you every day. You will also be learning many fascinating historical facts and stories that you may not be aware of. Plus, unlike our guests who visit from afar, being a local just means that you have more opportunities to go back to all the delicious food destinations that we will be visiting.

Are tours offered only in Danish/English?

We kindly ask that you please look at the weather forecast and dress appropriately. Tickets cannot be cancelled due to the weather.

Are young children allowed to participate on a tour? If so how much will I need to pay?

Yes. It is possibly to do some shopping at the locations. Please be aware that each tour involves a great deal of coordination so your shopping time will be limited. All tours start and end at Torvehallerne and you can have your purchases put aside for you there.

If the tour that I want to take is sold out can I get on a waiting list?

Unfortunately we haven't got a waiting list. We hope you can book a tour on another day. Please contact us and perhaps we can arrange a private tour for you. We often open for a second tour if one is sold out.

Yes. Our tours are vegetarian friendly. However, please notify us of your dietary restrictions when you purchase your ticket. It is possible to order vegetarian Open faced Sandwiches and organic sausages (the latter made of Tofu). On the West End Tour the focus is on the meat, so while vegetarian options can be arranged, you may be happier on the Culinary Experience.

Is there parking available near the start of the tour?

There is some available parking but as is the case in all big cities, parking is limited and/or expensive. We would recommend that you arrive by metro (subway)/train to Nørreport Metro/Trainstation, public bus, or taxi if you are not within walking distance.
