The tour showed another interesting side of Dresden and was very entertaining. Danilo has a very good general education and is good at showing connections. The tour of 3 hours was a bit exhausting because of the heat. Still, everyone agreed. It was really worth it.
Very pleasant and really interesting. Nice to take a tour through your own city and discover art that is otherwise hectic everyday life is lost. We will definitely do the FriedrichstadtTour as well. Culture with a difference ... I'd love to!
The trip was very nice and informative. The guide was very friendly. The arts were special and some of them had interesting history. The guide knew a lot of the history of the city, as well.
Great open-air event. Since then, I've been looking at the city with different eyes. I was also impressed by the diversity of the artists.
Absolutely do! Danilo is an "original" in any case not boring. We were only 3 people for 3 hours. That was class and not mass
