Informative tour, but please note the tour is in German!

Though it is noted in the tour description, it was not immediately clear to me that the tour would be conducted in German only. This was okay for me but my partner speaks only a little German. Apart from this the tour was very comprehensive and gave a good overview of the main sites and informed us about the history of Leipzig.

Very good !

Very interesting informations "behind the curtain" ... I appreciated it very much though it was the hotest day of the year. Gave me a good overview concerning Leipzig in former times and now. I was wondering why Nicolai Kirche was not in the programm, because this church is also part of Leipzig history. On the other hand - it`s easy to find on your own way. So this is not a big (negative) point.

Excellent experience

Very lively, diverse, interesting tour, without it you'd only partially understand Leipzig, if at all. Mrs. Slomka was a super-professional and funny guide, who showed and told us a lot that we would have overlooked otherwise. Absolutely recommend it (and at 8 Euro for over two hours it was really cheap!)
