4. Leipzig: innovative city tour 2.0 with multimedia highlights

This means you don't miss anything, even if the group is a little larger or you're still looking around or taking photos. Instead of pointless, boring lists of facts, you will see more of Leipzig. In such an interesting way that there are all sorts of new things for the city's residents too. One of the highlights along the way are the large-format projections (instead of tiny images), which are linked to the headsets via multimedia and thus offer a very special experience.

I can only recommend this tour to everyone, it's very informative and entertaining. I see Leipzig with completely different eyes now. It was definitely not the last tour I booked with you, I'll be back

The content of the tour was very well tailored to young people, the simple explanations were well complemented by the short videos! We liked it!

It was an interesting tour, we saw a lot of Leipzig. I especially liked the tour guide with her humorous reports and anecdotes.

Interesting insight into Leipzig city center and its history. Very lively and innovatively conveyed.

The bus was pretty run down. The tour guide did a good job, including the tour that followed.
