We had a really great guided tour through Dresden with tour guide Klaus / Claus. The large amount of extensive information has become much easier thanks to his dry and charming humor. You could feel how much love he speaks of his city. It never got boring or uninteresting. We were able to take a lot of knowledge with us and are very grateful for the great recommendations, whether cafes, restaurants or museums. We took almost everything with us :). It's really worth it! Klaus, a passionate tour guide! Please keep it up. a heartfelt thank you. Maja & Jeni from Berlin

The tour stood out from the usual tours that we have experienced in other cities in that the guide was very exceptional. His knowledge was enormous and he just bubbled over! In addition, he only resurrected the past in words. Not everyone can do that! We laughed a lot too!

Despite the bad weather, our guide made the tour definitely worthwhile with knowledge, wit and charm! In no way "stiffly" or "dull" the text talked down. ;-)

Fantastic walking tour, visiting the most important sights of the old city center. The tour guide knows a lot and ejoyed sharing her knowledge with us.

It was noticed to the city guide that he does his job with passion. Super kudos.
