Really great day! Lots of information provided by the guide who was was very good! Be aware that there are lots of steps at Bastei but worth it for the spectacular views. Dresden market was by far the best we have been to, most of the shops have animated toppers, lots of food, drink and gifts to be had. Lunch was also really tasty at quite a lovely looking place nestled away near the river in Germany (although they served Czech traditional food).

Get a lot of interesting information about Dresden. Very personable guide! I didn't find the tasting in the basement of a passage quite as stylish and the mulled wine was also a little different. I might have wished for that at a stand at one of the markets. But it didn't hurt the lead in the end.

Excellent tour and guide, missed the Christmas market bc of an active shooter, but otherwise well worth the time and effort. Wish we had time to have more than an hour in Dresden, but I’ll just have to go back.

Great experience! We really enjoyed the time, our tour guide Cristina was very friendly and give us plenty time to enjoy every place visited!

Our guide Andrew was superb and quite engaged This activity was the highlight of our trip!
