Klaus was great as a guide. At first I couldn't really assess him, but after a short time I really liked his dry sense of humor :-) He underpinned the city tour with a lot of knowledge. Questions were answered immediately. Highly recommended***** You could easily redeem the chip for the cup of coffee in the café after the tour ;-)

The tour guide was very good. Extensive information packed in an entertaining way. A total of 130 minutes instead of 100. Great! The free coffee wasn't great. Recommended tour!

Netter Guide, Dresden ist eine schöne Stadt, für den Kaffee gibt es einen Kaffeegutschein.
