Despite the hot weather, it was a very successful tour. Silvio brought us closer to the historical key data of the city with humor and ease. He knew how to answer every question and designed the tour individually according to our ideas. The bike itself rides very well even for the inexperienced ... and the fun factor is guaranteed. The wine selection was great and rounded off the whole tour. For us it was a great, funny and eventful day and the tour is absolutely recommendable!

We had a super entertaining tour with our guide plus a hard-working additional driver! Learn valuable and above all new information and knowledge about Dresden and its walls, taste good wine with a wonderful view of the vineyards! The kicking is not to be underestimated, but it is really fun on the device and the pinching thighs are worth it! Super well done! Sympathetic guide

very insightful. we probably spent a bit too much time in the opera house, and not enough time in the old city.

Hello, thank you very much for the great city tour with Ms. Wagner. I had an all-round successful city walk.

The Silvio did a good job. Cool bags could be expanded, otherwise everything was great !!
