We really enjoyed the mulled wine motor boat trip despite the outside temperature being only 2 degrees Celsius. Roger had decorated the boat nicely for Christmas. The table was attractively prepared with thermos flasks for mulled wine and punch and gingerbread. His explanations about the history and architecture of Leipzig were very interesting. He answered all questions - also in English - to our complete satisfaction.

Great offer, the price/performance ratio is absolutely okay, I can absolutely recommend this tour. A nice, pleasant boat tour with a very friendly and easy-going "captain", hot mulled wine, children's punch, nibbles and warm blankets included, you can enjoy a great boat trip in a pleasant peace and great landscape. Our guide told history and anecdotes very charmingly. Top experience

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

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
