A brilliant guide who ballanced perfectly great historic knowledge, stories and details. I will remember the history of Leipzig forever, and I would love to come back to this beautiful city soon. What a proud and interesting place!

Our guide was very knowledgeable, presented not only historical facts but also many ancillary tidbits that might not easily be found. He was witty and readily answered all questions even though he was not a native of Leipzig.

Loved to hear about the layers of history and learned so much about the history of Leipzig and the buildings :) I should have taken this tour on my first visit to Leipzig, not waited to my third. Absolutely recommend it!

The tour guide was simply a charming and very knowledgeable man. His knowledge of the city, its history was amazing. Funny at times, as well. My husband and I enjoyed the tour very much. Thank you.

We really enjoyed the guide's storytelling and how interesting and real he brought the history across to the group. He made a real effort to keep us under cover, as it was raining continuously.
