Fabulous!

They picked us up from our hotel right on time. They were friendly and easy to understand. The guide was fabulous. She took us on a lovely tour of the city snd then we had plenty of time to see the sights before going home. I would love to do another tour through this company.

Worth seeing, beautiful city

The city is beautiful and worth seeing! The bus ride from Prague takes about 2 hours! During the trip, the tour guide told something about Prague and Dresden - unfortunately the microphone was set a little too low! The guide was very nice and tried hard! We had actually booked a tour in German, since many different languages came together, but it was then changed to English, which was okay! We had 3 hrs of free time which was a bit too long - I would have preferred to have had a little more of the tour!

overall a nice trip

the tour was well arranged and easy with a hotel pick up and drop off. in dresden we saw the main attractions and had planty time to explore on our own. the guid was knowledgeable. however her English was as one would expect a tour guid should have. it seemd she was more keen in speaking Spanish for the benefit of the minority of the group. otherwise it was fine.
