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.
The introduction to using the Segway was great, we liked the chosen route very much and you could do it without any problems. The guide made the tour entertaining and interesting. We had a lot of fun and got to know Dresden in a different way - highly recommended!
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
Great route in dresden, 2h are perfect to get a very good overview of dresden. Guide was very gentle.
