The guided tour through the old town of Leipzig was very interesting, varied and completely entertaining. A lot of information about the history of the city from its origins to the present day, but in such a dosed amount that you don't get overwhelmed, but stay "on". The time frame was exactly as stated. Overall highly recommended!!
