We were lucky that we were able to enjoy the tour for two. Not a matter of course either. Ms. Schinke is a pleasant companion who accompanied us through all stations in a very entertaining and informative manner. In any case, we got to know first-class providers that we would otherwise have passed by without even noticing - we only ever got the tastiest variety (you know that, above all, when you've tried something on other days) - a very nice culinary overview of Leipzig get - get a lot of interesting information about the history of the city We definitely recommend this tour!

Great tour on 06/10/22! We would recommend not having breakfast beforehand, it was more than just appetizers and we were more than full afterwards. Everything tasted very good, our tour guide was very nice and was able to tell a lot... Altogether it was 3 1/2 very entertaining hours and the price-performance ratio was definitely right... We would recommend this tour at any time...

Everything worked out great, the booking was great and the tour guide was very refreshing with her knowledge.
