What people are saying about Meissen

The excursion was well organized by Marcel and his parents and very informative. The wines offered for tasting are all worth trying and we found them very tasty. The places selected for the tasting of the individual wines on our hike were very well chosen by Marcel. The explanations about the different wines were very informative and were always accompanied by funny toasts. The offered rustic snack in historical surroundings was very tasty, lovingly prepared and very rich. Marcel is an attentive tour guide who was there for us without being intrusive. We can only recommend this tour to every wine lover and those who want to become one.

Spent a great Saturday with 11 other interested people and Marcel. A very nice tour over the Elbe, through the vineyards and peppered with a lot of personal and professional contributions. In addition to the delicious wines, there was also a wonderful snack in a beautiful ambience. Is highly recommended!

A versatile and very well organized event: relaxing boat trip from Dresden via Meißen and Radebeul, beautiful wine tasting very skilfully integrated into a small hike through the wine region. Professional, competent and friendly travel companion. A clear recommendation!

Nice supervisor, steamer "Stadt Wehlen" unfortunately deck everything open and down in the cabin you didn't get the description of the area. Good snacks, nice wine tasting, but maybe a little tour of a winery would have rounded it all off.

Great tour guide! Great Vineyards! Simply an all-round successful tour with lots of fun and wine ;-)
