What people are saying about Leipzig

We had booked a 2 hour canal cruise. Half an hour later we had made a reservation in a restaurant. After an hour of driving, we learned that our trip would take 3 hours. That caused inconvenience.

The tour was very, very nice. The captain explained everything great. It was a fun ride and I really recommend it.

A wonderful tour, which was due in particular to our guide :-) great. Thank you very much!

It was a great ride in great weather and a great guide
