    The tour is amazing! The guide is very passionate about history and art and gives a lot of explanations about those during the tour. It was an indescribable experience. We also brought our dog and all the places were pet friendly. I would never see statues and pieces of art in the same way as before this tour. It was a masterclass.

    Although this tour does not go through all the sights and does not overwhelm you with facts, it is very entertaining and very interesting. You can remember a lot more and have a different view of the small things in the art-historical development of the old town. Thomas explains very clearly and conveys his enthusiasm authentically. The tips for culinary delights are also great, otherwise as a tourist you don't pay attention to them.

    The city tour was great! The guide surprised us with a lot of knowledge, whether about the Dresden Zwinger Semperoper or all the other sights. Throughout the tour, he explained the historical context to us in such an exciting way that it was never boring or too difficult to understand. A small highlight was of course the typical Dresden treat in between... ;-) In any case, a great round, thank you very much...!!!
