Dresden was simply amazing! The city has character, history and amazing art! The tour itself is so-so. Our guide was great and knowledgeable. We enjoyed the vast amounts of free time so we could explore ourselves without a guided this or that. If you are active and don't require a lot of supervision on tours, this is one for you!

Wonderful view of reconscructed city. Dresden was desolated in WW2 and has some of the most striking examples of archtecture, including the amazing Semper Oper, Swinger Gallerie with its old masters and Residenz Schloss. The vision of the city on the elbe and yes the informative tour direct from Prague taking in beautiful chechz and german countryside.

Great day trip for me and my wife, we left Prague by 8 person van, Dresden was under the same control as Prague was until the late 1989. Beautiful city with a unbelievable large Mall with all the brand name shops.This trip is a history buffs must!!! Returned to Prague around 6:00PM. This day tour also has a tour guide with it and has personal time allowance in Dresden.

Amazing city and an amazing tour guide Petro! The city center rebuilt from the useless American bombing in WWII is beautiful. Dresden is the Phoenix rising from the ashes. A must see! Has the worlds largest tile wall. Only city to be removed from UNESCO World Heritage Sites due to one UGLY, UGLY bridge. Ignore bridge and visit city! If you get Petro as guide, you are LUCKY!

This was a great tour. Jan arrived at our hotel early when does that ever happen?. Gave us a great orientation tour when we arrived in Dresden and then we could choose how long we wanted to spend on each activity. Especially appreciated since the Christmas markets were open in Dresden.

A beautiful and historical town centre along with a knowledgeable and friendly guide(Peter) made all the difference! If you've got more than a couple of days in Prague then Dresden's medieval town centre and art gallery(Zwinger) derserves a visit.
