First of all we had a walking tour of about one hour through the center of Leipzig which already was intense in terms of the explanations given by the guide as Leipzig has a huge history not only of its own but also by the many famous poets, musicians and other famous people that lived, studied or worked in the town. After our walk the two groups which were formed at the beginning meat again to take the bus tour to see the wider area of the center of Leipzig. Our guide here was as instructive and knowledgeable as the first one, and in the 1.5 hours of bus tour she spoke without interruption telling us about the buildings and people that lived and formed the town. It would have been nice to have maybe stopped here and there to take some pictures, but in the short time we had this was not possible. Anyway this combo tour is definitely worth its money and gives you and excellent impression of town and people for you to explore later by foot.

Eine super Grusel-Tour mit 100% Empfelungsfaktor! Wir hatte eine ganz tolle Zeit und würden es gerne immer wieder machen. Wir können einfach nur empfehlen sich drauf einzulassen und Spass zu haben.

It was a great night watchman tour. Very instructive, interesting, exciting and nicely done. Thank you from Saarland Maria, Michaela, Andreas and Michael

The tour with the night watchman Bremme was just great, can only be recommended again, thank you very much

It was good. Bear in mind you'll need extra euros apart from ticket to use certain things in zoo
