What people are saying about Leipzig

Die Buchung war unkompliziert. Von Vorteil haben wir empfunden, dass die Buchung kostenfrei bis einen Tag vorher storniert werden kann. Die Anlegestelle in der Schreberstraße war leicht zu finden. Wenn man vom Bahnhof mit der Straßenbahnlinie 1 fährt, ist es nicht mehr weit bis zum Stadthafen. Die Bootsfahrt selbst hat uns sehr gut gefallen. Der Bootsführer war sehr freundlich und hat alles ausführlich erklärt. Fazit: gern immer wieder

Tolle Tour durch Leipzig, die etwas andere Stadtführung durch die nächtlichen Gassen. Für den kleinen Schauer zwischendurch und spannende Geschichten über Leipzig und seine Dämonen sorgt die sympathische Bloody Mary (seit 113 Jahren zahnschmerzfrei). Kurzweilig und mit einem anderen Blick auf die Stadt. Wer ein paar Tage in Leipzig ist, und sich traut, sollte diese Tour nicht verpassen.

Uwe unser Kapitän war super nett, wusste viel Interessantes zu erzählen und hat laut und deutlich gesprochen. Es war eine entspannte Atmosphäre auf dem Boot. Es gab Getränke zu moderaten Preisen aus der Kühlbox, man konnte auch mitgebrachte Getränke trinken. Super Sache.

Great canal ride, route was picturesque and followed historic buildings. Highly recommend it.

Nice boat ride with perspective of another side of Leipzig from the water!
