This was a successful day. Or should I say it was a successful two days? We began the scavenger hunt on Saturday around 11 and were able to take the route at a relaxed pace. We had a lot of fun throughout, took photos and enjoyed the free time. At the Frauenkirche we ended the tour for the day- since we felt like it. We ended the entire tour on Sunday. This was a great way to visit Dresden's old city. We're still thinking about a lot of the things we experienced on this tour. The information is interesting and the assignments that lead you to each spot are easy to finish. You remember the answers. Awesome. Thanks for the lovely idea
I booked this trip for my birthday in order to show my friends and acquaintances Dresden without having to know my own way around, and it was a complete success, we all saw what we wanted to see and got as much time as we wanted, and saw everything, such as the Frauenkirche. Whoever doesn't know their way around super well and would like to let others take them on a tour should book this one.
A great way to explore beautiful Dresden! We visited the city in a group of 10 people. The game helped to have decisions on where to go and what to explore first. Would definitely recommend this game to a group. Will certainly have a look-out for a game like this when visiting another city.
A great tour of the Johannisfriedhof, with lots of information from different times. Very well and entertaining we were led over the cemetery in the 75 minutes. Season doesn't seem to matter at all!
We'd barely just ordered and were already there, just great!
