What people are saying about Dresden
The trip is excellent and no way a traveler can plan and do all this in one day. Besides some hiking, I have nothing to worry about. Everything is arranged and timed perfectly. Well worth the money.
Jan was the best guide we could ask for and the whole trip was one of the best we ever had; beautiful and exciting. Thanks again for everything ❤️
Unfortunately we could not visit the exhibition (storm paralyzed the train traffic). But otherwise the app is very good.
The visit to the exhibition at 7 p.m. was great because it was not very well attended.
Vermeer is my favorite painter - of course I had to see the exhibition
