      That wasn't the standard city tour! With a lot of love for detail, take a closer look at one or the other point and, starting from what is now visible, find access to the historical and regional background via art and technology. Very committed! The tour was also unabridged for one person!

      Thomas ist ein sehr sympathischer, hochmotivierter Guide mit viel Fachwissen zu allen kunsthistorischen Fragen. Man konnte ihn zu aktuellen gesellschaftspolitischen Themen fragen. Daneben haben wir von ihm wertvolle Tips zu weiteren kulturellen Angeboten in der Stadt sowie seine Restaurants und Cafés waren sehr hilfreich. Wir können ihn daher auf jeden Fall weiterempfehlen.

      Die Stadtführung mit Thomas am 25.08.2020 war für meinen Freund und mich das absolute Highlight unseres Kurztrips nach Dresden! Thomas hat einen tollen kurzweiligen Überblick quer durch Kultur, Kunst, Geschichte, Architektur und Moderne gegeben und es hat einfach richtig Spaß gemacht ihm zuzuhören. Mit seiner unterhaltsamen offenen Art hat er seine Begeisterung für die Stadt super rübergebracht und uns damit angesteckt. Echt empfehlenswert! :)
