A very worthwhile excursion! During the trip to Pillnitz Castle and the Bastei, the tour guide told many very interesting anecdotes, and some of them were very humorous. The tours in Park Pillnitz and at the Bastei were both at a comfortable pace. In both places you still had some free time to look around yourself. At the Schlosspark Pillnitz a few minutes too little for us, but at the bastion another three quarters of an hour was completely sufficient for us for our own tour. Luckily we caught a very sunny day and the bastion wasn't too crowded that day. On the way back there were a few more stories. Really very exciting and not overloaded. The price-performance ratio was very good here.
A very nice half day tour! Our guide Doris Wahl accompanied us through the excursion in an entertaining manner with her somewhat cheeky manner and provided us with a lot of information about Dresden, Pillnitz Castle and Saxon Switzerland. Personally, I had enough time both at Pillnitz Castle and at the Bastei bridge. Sure, a little more is always possible, but the tour is planned as a half-day excursion and the program is exactly as described. Both Pillnitz Castle and the Bastei are definitely worth a visit. Unfortunately we weren't that lucky with the weather, but you now know that it's worth coming back here - with a little more time, if necessary.
Great day out with Jan and his team. 3 fantastic sights, combined with some walking in natural surroundings. Extremely well organized, very friendly, nice lunch and very punctual pick up and dropoff. A great days outing.
The trip is excellent and no way a traveler can plan and do all this in one day. Besides some hiking, I have nothing to worry about. Everything is arranged and timed perfectly. Well worth the money.
Jan was the best guide we could ask for and the whole trip was one of the best we ever had; beautiful and exciting. Thanks again for everything ❤️
