Explore 850 years of history, beginning with a panoramic drive to beautiful Rosenborg Castle, built in 1607 in Dutch Renaissance style. Pause for photos at this idyllic castle and hear more about Danish King Christian IV, who built some of the most famous landmarks and districts in Copenhagen.

Continue to Amalienborg Palace. Four identical Rococo palaces surround the courtyard -- one is used as the winter residence of Queen Margrethe II; the second is the former residence of the Queen's mother; the third accommodates the Crown Prince and his family; and the fourth is used for visiting royalty. The palace it beautifully situated with a view to the waterfront, the new Opera House and the Marble Church.

Head to the colorful and lively Nyhavn waterfront district -- once the favorite haunt of drunken sailors and persons of ill repute. Today the canal district is lined with 500-year-old gabled houses, sidewalk cafés and bars.

Your panoramic drive continues through the inner part of Copenhagen and the Old Town -- you'll pass City Hall and the mile-long Stroget pedestrian-only street filled with shops, boutiques and cafés. Opposite, you will spot the world-famous Tivoli Gardens, founded in 1843.

Next, pass the Glyptotek Art Museum, and don't miss the chance to see the most iconic landmark of Copenhagen, the world-famous, tiny-mighty statue of the Little Mermaid.

Christiansborg Palace is home to the Danish Parliament as well as the Queen's Reception Rooms -- you will stop here to snap a few photos outside; then, drive past the Dutch-Renaissance-style old Stock Exchange with its slightly pagan-esque spire of entwined dragon tails.

Return to the pier at the end of your tour.
