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

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

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

It was great, a tour all over the city to see all historical monuments.
