Last night we went on a scary tour with Clarissa through Leipzig. Even if it wasn't scary, we really liked the tour. Clarissa is great, she entertains the guests with full devotion. She told us interesting stories about Leipzig very well. We can only recommend this tour.

A great tour of the Johannisfriedhof, with lots of information from different times. Very well and entertaining we were led over the cemetery in the 75 minutes. Season doesn't seem to matter at all!

Jörg was superb!

We enjoyed our tour and time so much we were sad to leave Leipzig the next day and wished Jörg could come with us! He was excellent and so engaged with our interests. We would recommend him highly!

I liked it very much, I especially liked the way my children were involved. It was exciting and we all enjoyed it. Many Thanks.
