Jan our guide, picked us up in the morning perfect in time. we drove by car to our first stop for the Elbsandsteingebirge at the german side of the mountains. it was a short walk (500m) to the postcard view everybody knows. Nearly no tourist in the moning around, (Jan really made an ideal tour schedule for the whole day). The view was stunning and we had a lot of time for pictures. after this we drove by car to the czech side of the mountains to see the Prebisch-Door. For this we had a 2 km walk up to the side through the forrest (perfect air and very relaxed). Then we went back and we took a bus for a short ride to a restaurant for lunch. It was very delicious after the walking and hiking, a great stop to releax. Then we walked through the forrest for a boat-trip. The walk was stunning, because of the nature. The boat-ride was great and funny. And in the end we went by car back home. In total a great tour, well balanced by Jan (super friendly, informativ, great company)
The tour started with the visit at the opera house, which already set high expectations for the rest of the tour . Make sure you’re on time. We were 3minutes later and the tour started without us, with no way for us to get into the opera house. However, an employee came outside to check for any late comers, which was helpful. Overall, the tour lasts 2.5 hours. Be prepared to do a lot of walking and standing. As for the guide, he was very knowledgeable and engaging. Would highly recommend this tour!
We enjoyed our tour experience very much. My kids (9, 11 and 12 Years old) were entertained and the Guide knew how to package the information so the kids would stay interested and had fun. I was impressed with the logistics. We used public transportation and Silvia had organized all tickets ahead of time and knew all the various schedules and connections so we could be flexible throughout the tour and still get to see everything we wanted to see.
Jan, my tour guide was really good and communicates well. It was a great trip with him. There was more of hiking, so definitely comfortable shoes are required. Though it was a rainy day, the tour guide Jan had all required equipments and had a great visit to the National park. Lovely location and great lunch and drinks.
You get a very good impression of greater Dresden with a funny, well informed guide. She even fulfilled our special wish to see the blue wonder. We really had a good time. I can highly recommend this tour.
