    Bustour führt einen sehr schön durch Dresden, und nicht nur im Innenstadt Bereich, sondern auch etwas außerhalb. Es waren viele Buse unterwegs, so das man jederzeit aussteigen konnte, aber nicht lange auf den nächsten warten muss. Leider war eine Route nicht befahrbar, was beim Ticketkauf niemand gesagt hat. Auf Maskenpflicht wurde auch kaum geachtet, was in einem ‚engen‘ und vollen Bus natürlich kontraproduktiv ist. Zwinger ist gut zu erreichen und definitiv einen Besuch Wert! Leider ist das dortige Personal sehr unfreundlich.

    War alles sehr gut organisiert und man kann mit diesen Tickets wirklich alle Highlights erleben. Besonders hervozuheben ist der Stadtrundgang und die Nachtwächterführung. Es wurde viel vermittelt in einer lockeren Atmosphäre.
