Amazing Kayak hire. I would recommend following the route on the map because it’s really helpful and scenic. You can get double kayaks which are what we hired. It’s fine for all ages as long as you can swim 150 metres. You must make sure you are not to loud in Freetown Christiana because of local rules. Definitely hiring Kayaks from here again!

The 2 houres mornig City Tour was great!! It's also good for beginner. Xenia is a good guide and gave us many informations about Copenhagen. It is a nice way to see the buildings and houseboats from the water...
Also the kayak bar has good meals and a nice atmosphere.

If you have any rules regarding the possibility to cancel a booking, you should be informed when the booking was made. Futhermore the lack you response via the e-mail is horrific.

I tried to cancel a booking more than 4 days before. First they informed me that a refund wasn’t possible, then I informed them that didn’t appear on website and since I hadn’t received the service I paid for, I expected a full refund.
They haven’t responded since (3+ days)

At last, I checked if the time I booked was still available after I tried to cancel. And it was.
So it not like I prevented anyone else from booking at that time.

Attended a weekend course (IPP2) at Kayak Republic, which was a really good experience. Very professional instructors with a good understanding of how to stepwise build up skills and confidence. I had no idea how much I could learn in just two days. Of course, the training ground also contributed to a joyful weekend, the port of Copenhagen offers a perfect scene for urban kayaking. And the famous moules frites lunch at Kayakbar was tasteful and energizing.

Really bad experience with them. The day before we where supposed to go kayaking, a message was broadcast on the radio that there had been so much rain in Copenhagen that the canals were flooded and there were now cholera bacteria in the water, whereby staying in the water was a health hazard. My friend and I tried that day to call them without success. The day after where we where supposed to go kayaking (19/8) we went there to talk to them, to which we were told we should write an email and then we would get our money back. It is now 4 weeks ago and we have sent two emails and called and talked to them 3 times but we have not received a response, other than on the phone where they have said that they would answer our email and it was of course regrettable they had not answered our mail. Such a waist of Money. I can far from recommend them. Rather spend your money somewhere else, because should you end up in the same situation as us, you will never see that money again, nor should you expect them to respond to your emails if you try. Was it an opportunity to give negative stars I would have done it 🤷🏼‍♀️

We booked the City Tour. Great idea to see the city from a different perspective. Unfortunately, the experience didn‘t hold up to what it promised. We did not have any prior experience (which is ok according to the website) and only got some minimal instructions on paddeling after asking the guide, there was no proper briefing. We struggeled with paddeling but did not get any feedback on how to do it better. Consequently, we fell behind the group all the time and did not catch any of the information on the city by the guide if there were any (which we are not sure of). Later during our vacation, we did another kayak tour. This was a completely different experience as we were carefuly instructed before the tour and also well taken care of during paddeling by the guide. We cannot really recommend this tour for people without prior experience or expecting information on the city. This is a pity because we really like the idea of sightseing from this perpespective. On the upside, the bar and restaurant are great!

The Kayak Republic Team led by Gustavo was amazing. We travelled with three kids, with our oldest being 13 and our youngest 7. Gracias por todo! We will certainly be back!

good fun, specially on good weather. do ensure that if you never did kayaking before, you get a good briefing ahead of kayaking. we did not get a lot of briefing and it was not so fun.

rental equipment such as wetsuit, etc, is a lil bit worn out.

We held a team event at Kayak Republic mid September for 15 people with 2 hours kayaking and lovely food afterwards. We really enjoyed ourselves.
The guide was professional and fun and good at giving tips on how to kayak. The kayaks was easy to use for beginners and we got the most beautiful view of Copenhagen. Afterwards we had dinner at the cosy Kayakbar. The service was good and the food was tasty. We would be happy to do it again :-)
