Nice private tour

We had a very good private tour! In addition to historical facts, Falk also told us many smaller details and stories. The private tour had the huge advantage that our guide fully responded to our questions and needs, picked us up from the hotel and was also flexible in terms of time - really recommendable!

Mr. Hartwig is a very nice city guide, showed us many beautiful sights and gave a lot of information. Flexible in terms of meeting point. City guide very good! Experiences with the GetyourGuide booking platform were rather bad, so far I have not received an invoice.

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!

We liked it very much. The meeting point was ideal, as was the time of 10:00 a.m. Our city guide was very knowledgeable and answered all of our questions. We were very satisfied.

Very friendly guides, well informed. Walk accustomed to our personal needs.
