We were passing through Leipzig and had a 7 hour stopover. We found this tour on the internet and thought it would give us a good overview for the time that we had. The company offered only a combined German/English tour and not an English only so we had no choice with this respect. We found ourselves the only two English speakers in the whole group and were quite concerned about the attention the guide would pay to us. Quite to the contrary, our guide gave an excellent tour, giving equal time to us on every respect. We never felt like a minority. The guide was excellent in her telling of the history of both the town and people embellished with many humorous anecdotes. A highly recommended tour.
It was fine once it started. Being winter, the number of departures was reduced and I waited for it to start longer than my patience lasted. But I suppose that's inevitable as they can't afford buses going round empty. They need to install the recordings in other languages soon. My German wasn't really good enough to get the best from the commentary.
Our guide Sylvia was excellent and very fluent in English. We thoroughly enjoyed both the walking tour of the old city and the bus tour of surrounding suburbs to learn much more about the origins of Leipzig.
An improvement would be to have English and German tours separately as it would give more time to view each attraction in more detail.
Overall good city tour with nice route and good commentary, but very crowded on weekends (we went on a Saturday)
