The tour started with the visit at the opera house, which already set high expectations for the rest of the tour . Make sure you’re on time. We were 3minutes later and the tour started without us, with no way for us to get into the opera house. However, an employee came outside to check for any late comers, which was helpful. Overall, the tour lasts 2.5 hours. Be prepared to do a lot of walking and standing. As for the guide, he was very knowledgeable and engaging. Would highly recommend this tour!

Great tour

This was a very nice tour. Unlike the usual city tours, we first got to see the Semperoper from the inside, and after a short break, we got to see the rest of the surrounding buildings and historical marks. Most of those historical places are nearby, and it's great to learn about them. The tour guide was very knowledgeable.

This tour was lovely and our guide Saskia was very sweet, eloquent and knowledgeable. We got an in-depth view of the opera house and how it was meticulously rebuilt after being destroyed, as well as a tour of the main landmarks and buildings, and walk around the old town. Such a great start of our little trip to Dresden, I recommend it!
