What people are saying about Leipzig

We had a perfect day with our guide Pedro! Pedro picked us up at the train station in Leipzig on time and was able to entertain us throughout the tour with his knowledge of the region (Pedro comes from the Ore Mountains!). The highlights of the tour were lunch with a view of the entire Ore Mountains and a visit to the mine in Annaberg-Buchholz. We would book a tour with Pedro again at any time and can recommend it to everyone!

When the bus arrived at 9.00 am we were relaxed and happy that it was just the 3 of us on board. The day's destination Bad Lauchstädt, Walkenried monastery ruins, Torfhaus combined with a hike, Ilsenburg and finally Wernigerode, who would have thought that we could do all this. Even the weather was great. We are happy to recommend this trip to the Harz Mountains. Catherine

The private tour was worth it, so we were able to be guided individually through the old town in a small group. The tour guide was also very knowledgeable. Any time

It was a great journey and tour guide is friendly and humorous. We learned a lot and had a really good time which we will remember forever.

Guide (Tom) very competent and friendly and attentive to our wishes
