What people are saying about Leipzig

The zoo was a dream. Unfortunately the bus didn't leave until 10:00 a.m. and the records said 9.30 a.m. We did a city tour to the zoo. Super exciting and the tour guide made it really SUPER !!

An incredibly great experience! The technology was amazing and the support from the guide was great. We will come back in any case.

The trip was great. Ordering tickets and paying was easy. Finding the bus was a bit more difficult but also easy to solve.

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

Coole Idee diesen sehr schönen Friedhof zu erkunden.
