Why family-friendly bike tours?

When I was riding our cargo bike through Copenhagen with my kids in it, I recognized a lot of tourists looking curiously at us. I started wondering why... I imagined: When I would come here as a tourist, I would love to try one of those bikes with my own kids in it. Feel like a Copenhagen family. It would also be more convenient than using a stroller with no tired feeds. And I thought, since the city is well-known for its family friendliness, the (cargo) bikes and a sustainable healthy lifestyle, there must be families who want to go on a cargo bike tour. As a local guide and a travel agent, I also know the needs of travelling families. And I would claim that the bike lifestyle is one of the secrets behind the Danes being ranked as the happiest nation. So come and try it!

Who is behind it?

My name is Maike and I have been living in Copenhagen since 2005. I love my kids and I love to plan trips for our entire family. I have worked in tourism business since 2001. This brings along a work-related quirk: I need to find the real authentic local experience. Preferably with private local guides. My kids born in 2008 and 2014, which sometimes makes it challenging to meet all our needs and preferences. I have been to many places, where I would have loved to book family-friendly tours. I didn't find so many. I always ended up planning our own private local tours. So I founded Copenhagen Family Tours in order to be able to offer families visiting my city a great local experience and give them more insight than I got on my trips.

Who will guide us?

This season you will probably meet one of our 6 family guides when you book a tour with us: Max, who is a father of two, has a Master in Social Entrepreneurship and is from Canada; Inge, who is Danish-American, has a 6 year old bonus-daughter and works with urban development; John, who is a bike enthusiast from the UK and has a 6 year old daughter, Gabriel, who holds a Master in Global Studies, has a son and comes from Argentina; Alexandra, who is originally from Hungary and has lived many places in Europe, worked as au-pair and is a social media manager and speaks Italian, and Lotte, our wise German-speaking guide. All of us have lived in Copenhagen/ Denmark for more than 5 years and we are passionate about showing you our home city, spending a great time together.

Our guide Alexandra loves #kids and here you can see her in action on the #trampoline with one of our little guests. It is summerly warm these days in #copenhagen and #denmark and so sunny, that I needed a filter for this photo... Is this #climatechange or just #luck? Is the weather behaving weird where you come from? #legacy #bikesarethefuture #climateaction #doitforthekids

On a lovely #springday our guide Alexandra took this lovely #family on a customized #biketour through #copenhagen. The #cannonboathouses in the background were once built to hide parts of the #danish fleet from enemies. Today they are restored and offer a lot of #creativespace to companies.

My son and I fetched our newest family member - a #christianiabike with 2 benches, so 4 kids and sit inside - from the bike repair shop today. He went the 2 km on his #pukybike and we trained traffic awareness on our way. #growinguponbikes #chefchen #cargobike #triporteur #bikefamily #ibikecph #bikesuv

These two ladies from Luxemburg took a #biketour with our guide @ingehopps just after arriving at @tivolihotelcph on a fantastic warm #springday in #copenhagen. Here they are at the Gefion Fountain. Actually we @familytoursdk like this statue and it’s story even better than the one of #thelittlemermaid. What about you?

#brotherlove My little one finally said goodbye to his pacifier and - like his older brother way back - was allowed to choose something at the #legostore. The older one was more #excited😁 than the little 🙂

Local kids learn to ride the #bike early in #Copenhagen, but in this situation, I wished this boy was in a cargobike. That’s why we only allow kids to go on individual bikes on our #biketours, if they are around 10 years and regular #cyclists. I don’t want my guests to be overtaken by this #grumpy man, so remember to keep to the right also on the #bikelanes. 👍
