Great experience! Marcel was a perfect guide, mastered the history and the actual situation very well and was very helpful to re-explain and clarify our questions in english. The trip gave us great insights. It was very pleasant, easy to do, right stops in a safe wat with great explanation.
Sehr empfehlenswert- bequem und informativ. Ramon war unser Capitan, hat alles toll erzählt. Wir haben etwas über Geschichte der Stadt gehört und dazu hat er uns viele praktische Infos über Leipzig gegeben. Man kann sich was zu trinken auf dem Boot kaufen.
Loved the personalised tour and learnt so much around the centre. Loved all the history of the various buildings. A fantastic tour and didn't expect all this history in Lepzig!!
We walked more than half the Leipzig Music Trail with Trudy, who was pleasant and knowledgeable, and clearly loves her city and the music in it. A very enjoyable morning!
