Great organization, interesting information After we were able to look over the whole of Leipzig from a height of 91 m from the Monument to the Battle of the Nations, the next bus or “our” bus with the same driver came on time. Many thanks, Kerstin

A very good hop on hop off tour. Explanation came precisely from the attendant on the bus and not 5 minutes earlier or later, as I have experienced differently. The guide also had good specific information ready.

Great experience, the cars are well kept and the tour of the city was fun and informative. Highly recommended!

Very informative and entertaining! It's convenient to be able to get on and off wherever you want.

Was a very good day and a very friendly guide with a lot of knowledge about Leipzig
