    You can definitely recommend the Dresden Gourmet Walk. Perhaps the process could have been designed a little differently, since we were able to taste the Dresden egg check immediately after the stollen dinner. A hearty beer in between would have been better. Our guide (wbl.) Went out of his way to make an effort, but some of the comments were somewhat exaggerated. The waiting time in the corner of the palace could have been bridged more professionally.

    Very engaging, authentic-looking city guide equipped with a great deal of historical knowledge! The stations were well chosen to present Dresden's variety of delights! Perhaps it is from history that the "sweet" side predominated? It was also very positive that there was no agitation; As a result, the intended 2h was far from enough! Big thanks for that!

    A great insight into a few shops in Dresden

    It was just great with a few taste highlights, anecdotes and a little bit of history. It started with a glass of cellar beer in the taproom, followed by a piece of chocolate in the chocolate museum, then there was a tasting of the delicious Christstollen Dresden with a cup of coffee, followed by a tasting of egg parson and in the end there was a decent glass of wine in the Italian village. It was unique and the tour guide was happy to be there.
