We were in a small group of 7 people. Our guide was very personable, was able to answer all of our questions, told us a lot and couldn't fit everything into her extensive knowledge! ☺️ Time flew by. Found the tour to be the perfect introduction to exploring the historic old town. Recommended!

We spontaneously decided to do the city tour and have not regretted it. Natalie told us a lot about Dresden with her refreshing way. And the city tour on foot is also an option in Dresden, as all the buildings worth seeing are very close together. The historical tour is ideal for getting a quick overview. I can definitely recommend :-)

Very varied tour

Ms. Blau led us through "her" Dresden with a lot of humor and very interesting stories and made the 1 1/2 hour tour very varied and memorable. Their efforts to build bridges to the home countries of the people involved in the group showed their great knowledge. Despite the heat (38 ° C), she made an effort to bring us all a bit closer to Dresden and she succeeded in an exemplary manner. Thank you for the much information
