From Dresden: Saxon Switzerland National Park Full-Day Trip
- Duration: 7 hours
- Small group
Jan our guide, picked us up in the morning perfect in time. we drove by car to our first stop for the Elbsandsteingebirge at the german side of the mountains. it was a short walk (500m) to the postcard view everybody knows. Nearly no tourist in the moning around, (Jan really made an ideal tour schedule for the whole day). The view was stunning and we had a lot of time for pictures. after this we drove by car to the czech side of the mountains to see the Prebisch-Door. For this we had a 2 km walk up to the side through the forrest (perfect air and very relaxed). Then we went back and we took a bus for a short ride to a restaurant for lunch. It was very delicious after the walking and hiking, a great stop to releax. Then we walked through the forrest for a boat-trip. The walk was stunning, because of the nature. The boat-ride was great and funny. And in the end we went by car back home. In total a great tour, well balanced by Jan (super friendly, informativ, great company)
Our tour guide Seema was amazing. The meeting point was easy to find and she was there promptly. She contacted us ahead of time and catered the tour to our three teenagers perfectly. Not one of them looked at their phone during the 2 hour tour as they were extremely interested in the information she was sharing with them about Hitler and the Third Reich. She took the time to explain the psychology of what happened to the people living during that time and at every point in the tour she left time for the kids to ask questions and look around to absorb what they were learning. The 2 hour tour seemed too short!!! I would highly recommend Seema’s tours.
Jan, my tour guide was really good and communicates well. It was a great trip with him. There was more of hiking, so definitely comfortable shoes are required. Though it was a rainy day, the tour guide Jan had all required equipments and had a great visit to the National park. Lovely location and great lunch and drinks.
I had a wonderful experience in countess von Brühl's company for 2 hours. The countess had a profound knowledge of the history of Saxony, Pillnitz Castle and court life in the 18th century. She was kind, charming and made me feel welcome, and she was stunningly beautiful in her costume. It was 2 fantastic hours!
We has a fabulous day with an excellent guide in marvelous scenery. The hours just flew by. Perfect timing on the pivo and dinner, well planned trip. The guide, Jan (fantastic name by the way :) ), had much local knowledge and a smiling person with good personality. Thank you Jan for a perfect day :)
