What people are saying about Leipzig

It was really great. A highlight for families with children. Unfortunately, we had two "adult" women with us who accused others of cheating, which wasn't true, and obviously cheated the whole time. And also in the end the stones did together and thus won. It's a pity for all the children that they didn't at least pay attention and it was really very obvious that the two of them cheated. Maybe you should collect the individual bags and count them yourself as a quizmaster without announcing it beforehand...

What a great tour! We didn't even notice how quickly the time passed because Bertha entertained us so much! In 90 minutes we learned an incredible amount about Leipzig in a way that was entertaining, humorous and eloquent. Simply great and an absolute recommendation for anyone who wants to get to know Leipzig and is not just looking for standard information :)

The meeting point was easy to reach, the briefing was short and good and then it started. We did the tour on Sundays when there was less traffic in the city so we had a lot of fun driving the Trabi. Our guide entertained and informed us very well and a driver change is also possible at the two stopovers. Have fun!

The walking tour captured the most important historical aspects of Leipzig. It was interesting, the right length / time to get a good overview for further exploration, and the guide was great and entertaining!

It was a great journey and tour guide is friendly and humorous. We learned a lot and had a really good time which we will remember forever.
