The tour was very interesting. The guide explained the essentials of each stop without overwhelming the guests. The specialties on offer were all very fine. It was very pleasant that the samples offered could be eaten while sitting down. The tour was an experience that can be recommended.

-Great and super friendly tour guide -cool stops (even for Leipzigers there are new things) -At the end you are full and happy -for my personal taste there were too many "sweet stops" (I would have preferred something a little more savory)

Jane was really friendly and knowledgeable, with a good grasp of important historical events. We went at a relaxed pace, suited to our needs. Even though we were late for the tour, Jane was super accommodating!

Tour guide was knowledgeable and gave suggestions for things to do later tailored to my interests. The tour was very engaging and interesting!

Great tour, great guide, delicious food and drink.....I'd do it again anytime! Also very suitable for people from Leipzig.
