'keen tourist' is the definition.
The answer and definition can be both people as well as being singular nouns.

'german given piece of brain and pig's foot' is the wordplay.
'german' becomes 'g' (abbreviation).
'given' is a charade indicator (letters next to each other).
'piece of brain' becomes 'lobe' (I can't explain this - if you can you should believe this answer much more).
'and' means one lot of letters go next to another.
'pig's foot' becomes 'trotter' (trotter means a pig's foot eaten as food).
