Great tour! Friendly and knowledgeable guide. Comfortable and reliable transportation. Lots of options to see in Dresden. Freedom to choose what you want to see. No rush of a large group or coach tour. Even got to see a couple extras in Berlin. I highly recommend this tour if you're looking for a more personalize experience.
Dresden is about 2 hours away from Prague the guide gets you tickets for the Zwinger and then takes you a walk round the old town of Dresden and then the rest of the time is your own to visit the Zwinger and do whatever else you want. In total you spend 5 hours in Dresden and it is really worth seeing excellent day out.
Lots too see both in the galery and in the town, a bit more time there would have been nice. The bus was clean and cumfortable. It was not full so plenty of room.
