Our tour guide Seema was amazing. The meeting point was easy to find and she was there promptly. She contacted us ahead of time and catered the tour to our three teenagers perfectly. Not one of them looked at their phone during the 2 hour tour as they were extremely interested in the information she was sharing with them about Hitler and the Third Reich. She took the time to explain the psychology of what happened to the people living during that time and at every point in the tour she left time for the kids to ask questions and look around to absorb what they were learning. The 2 hour tour seemed too short!!! I would highly recommend Seema’s tours.

Surprising new information about how it happened

Now 5 days later still impressed by this tour. So special to get objective answers to questions that people would rather avoid. Our guide (a new European) did an excellent job. Would book the tour again immediately

Fantastic and FUN!

A big thank you to Seema for making our first visit to Dresden unforgettable. We enjoyed the stories and secrets of the city and our teenager daughter was attentive to all the details.

Seema gave the complete family a competent introduction to classics.

The planning interaction gave us possibility to adjust Seemas presentation. Thank you Seema, for caring for our needs and the different interests in our family.

The tour was amazing. I recommend this to everyone.
