With "getyourguide" we had the opportunity to get tickets to the Vermeer exhibition, which was actually already fully booked. A recommendable variant, quick and uncomplicated. The only drawback when paying was I couldn't register the discount or I couldn't find it, but I could get over that given the luck of being able to visit the exhibition.

It was an absolute pleasure taking this tour with Jan! He did the tour with me even though I was the only person booked onto it. He's such a nice guy and it was such a fun day! The views are incredible. A must-see if you're visiting Dresden. You have to see the lovely scenery for yourself. Would recommend it to everyone! Thanks for the amazing day, Jan.

everything was perfectly planned out by Jan and William from picking me up in the morning, the short hikes around the bastei and prebisch gate, to bringing me home in the evening - I really enjoyed it :)

A trip that should not be missed, especially in the company of Jan and William! The beauty of the places is worth the little effort dedicated to this hike!

We were very happy not to get tickets for the equipment this way, which we would otherwise not have been able to do.
