Booking and buying tickets through Getyourguide was straightforward and easy. I confirmed the port number at the ticket office and was able to board the ship 15 minutes before departure. It's a very comfortable trip. It was cloudy, but the city of Dresden was beautiful after the city lights had darkened beautifully.

In itself, the boat trip was fantastically beautiful, a beautiful well-kept boat. What annoyed me was the description with the headphones, you need an app on your cell phone to hear what you can see, unfortunately it wasn't described as such. We had a company event and the headphones we bought especially for this were free, since everyone has a different cell phone and there is not enough data volume to download the app.

It was a very nice trip along the Elbe to Blasewitz and back again. We had great weather and were able to see and experience a lot. We deducted a star because the sightseeing tour could have been accompanied by an app, which unfortunately wasn't included in the description. But otherwise the information was interesting and the design was implemented very nicely. The physical well-being was also taken care of. The waitresses and the ship's staff were very friendly, ensuring a successful trip. I'd love to come back.
