Our tour guide on this occasion was Wolfgang - he was very informative about the history of Dresden and you could tell he is very passionate about the area. The tour gave a good idea on the history of Dresden and didn’t dwell on anything for too long in my opinion. There was 4 people in total which was nice as it felt very private. Would recommend this tour for people visiting Dresden who are interested in its history.

It was an extremely great walking tour. Our guide Karen knew her stuff and shared the history in such an interesting way that you can't help but be completely engaged in her every word! She is very knowledgeable not only in the history of Dresden, but also of Germany in general and could answer our questions with ease. I highly recommend this English speaking tour of the history of Dresden. I have such an appreciation of this glorious city...thanks to our guide.

Excellent tour, exceptional guide! The group was tiny and it appeared that we had almost a private tour that lasted approx. three hours (much more than the website promised). Our guide (Wolfgang) was incredibly knowledgeable, polite, humorous and super nice man. It was a great pleasure to walk through the city with him and to dig into beautiful and tragic history of Dresden.
