We booked the English tour for Sunday at 10 am with our company. It was a very nice Sunday morning walk in the sunshine through the old city of Dresden. The lady was very knowledgeable with a good English. If we would not have had a little time pressure, we would have had the chance to learn even more about the different historic phases and its impact on the current structure of Dresden.

Thomas is a GREAT guide! We learned a lot about the history and the art of Dresden in the very short 2 hours. Thomas is knowledgeable and explains things very well. If we visit Dresden again, we’d book a tour of the Old Masters galley with Thomas because we trust his expertise :)

Very informative, very friendly, competent guide. The audio system was also great, so you could always hear everything clearly, even if you weren't standing directly in front of/next to the guide.

History lessons are not dry like in school lessons. There was even some information left there

It was a very interesting and beautiful tour through old Dresden.
