Laura was exceptional! Great tour, very informative and answered everyone’s questions with great background knowledge. She took us to interesting parts of the city and was well prepared. Laura was also attentive, given we had a foreign speaker, who needed English spoken slower and we had a person with special needs, so Laura was looking out for them the whole time. Really great experience, we would all recommend!

Our guide, Wolfgang, was enthusiastic, knowledgeable and entertaining about his city of Dresden. We learned a lot and regretted that we had only the day in Dresden. His guided tour has made us want to return to explore more of it. He also gave some recommendations of places to eat that were a bit different and it didn't feel like he was just spruiking.

Our tour guide on this occasion was Wolfgang - he was very informative about the history of Dresden and you could tell he is very passionate about the area. The tour gave a good idea on the history of Dresden and didn’t dwell on anything for too long in my opinion. There was 4 people in total which was nice as it felt very private. Would recommend this tour for people visiting Dresden who are interested in its history.
