Very well organized city tour, the moderator was very accomplished. Unfortunately, booking online does not reflect real availability. Originally it was supposed to be a different provider, but Get your Guide had no places available. In fact, they would have been there. So you can confidently pay for the bus and directly on site.

Everything was great, despite the car-free Sunday in the city center, we saw a lot of Leipzig. - not enough legroom between the seats, felt trapped

I was with my granddaughter, 9 years. She liked it very much too. It was very interesting.

A wonderful tour, which was due in particular to our guide :-) great. Thank you very much!

Very nice trip ... everything was well explained well .. thanks to Mike ..
