We enjoyed our tour experience very much. My kids (9, 11 and 12 Years old) were entertained and the Guide knew how to package the information so the kids would stay interested and had fun. I was impressed with the logistics. We used public transportation and Silvia had organized all tickets ahead of time and knew all the various schedules and connections so we could be flexible throughout the tour and still get to see everything we wanted to see.
I had a wonderful experience in countess von Brühl's company for 2 hours. The countess had a profound knowledge of the history of Saxony, Pillnitz Castle and court life in the 18th century. She was kind, charming and made me feel welcome, and she was stunningly beautiful in her costume. It was 2 fantastic hours!
The guide did a great job and was very knowledgable on the times and styles. The problem is the tour company as they did not indicat that the palace was closed. So I understood why the guide did not understand why we were there. We had a good time any way.
The information counter to collect the Dresden City Card was within a small shopping mall right in front of the Frauenkirche Dresden. It may be missed due to the many restaurants alfresco there.
We had a great time through out. Couldn’t find any option other than potato soup for vegetarians. If you can bring your eatables it would be more enjoyable.
