As a native Dresdener I spent almost all my life in this area and would be happy to introduce you to my wonderful hometown.
Having lived in the United States for a couple of years and travelled quite a bit around the world, I improved my English skills a lot.
Tour guiding became more and more interesting to me during my first full time job in a destination management company. Discovering a lot about our history and telling about it to my guests became my passion.
Currently you will find me most often in the DresdenWalks office; writing offers, replying to your e.mails and phone calls. Happy to be in touch with our guests and clients.

What our clients say about Janas Tours:
Excellent german tourguide speaking fluent japanese
The Lady at DresdenWalks, who coordinates the tours is brilliant. Always very keen to offer you the best tours taking all of our requests into consideration. She went the extra mile for us in responding very fast to all enquiries showed extraordinary customer services.
Our tourguide Manuela G. is as good as gold. Not only, that she speaks perfect Japanese, but she understands to impart her profound knowledge about Dresden and its history in a very vivid and adorable manner !
She took us through Dresden old city and accompanied us to Meissen. During the train ride to Meissen she gave us a lot of interesting background and advises about the villages, we passed.
Wholehearted thanks to DresdenWalks (Jana and Manuela) our trip was memorable.

A very easy going walk around Dresden to ensure you hit all the highlights with the added benefit of great commentary. Jana and her little son were great!

Informative and pleasant walk around
Would really recommend dresdenwalks. 12 euro for a 2 hour tour of the the old town including schloss platz, the churches, parade of princes and zwinger among others. She starts with a short orientation about Dresden and shows us photos as we go along. She brought along her little boy who I found super charming.
Meeting place is daily at 12noon at the steps of Bruhns balcony. You can reserve or pay online.
“Knowledgeable guide with lots of insight on Dresden”
I stopped by Dresden for a day on the way to Berlin from Prague not knowing what to expect so I booked this tour. This is a great walking tour to find out a little more about Dresden and its rich history. The historical walk covers most of the sights in the Old Town, which are quite close to each other in proximity and would be great for those who don’t want to be doing too much walking.
Our guide Jana led us through various parts of Dresden’s history, touching on different eras ranging from the Augustus the Strong, to the WWII bombings, living through the Communist era and then life after the reunification. From Jana’s explanation, it is obvious that Dresden was once a great city and now rising from the ashes again.
The walking tour price is 12 Euros – very standard based on the many walking tours I have taken throughout Europe. I would love to join some of the other DresdenWalks the next time I’m in town.

“Worthwhile way to spend 2 hours in Altstadt Dresden”
Our guide, Jana, was very informative and knowledgeable, and it did not seem possible when the 2 hours were up – time just flew! You were not battered by a load of facts but information was imparted in an easy and conversational manner, which made it easy to absorb. Unfortunately it was wet but but it did not detract from what we saw or the tour. A worthwhile way to spend 2 hours visiting this lovely city.

Personalised but professional
Spent over 2 hours in Janni’s company today as she guided 2 of us through Dresden’s interesting architecture and history. She was a knowledge guide, with a lovely sense of humour and honest responses to my ‘awkward ‘ questions. Highly recommended.

Two hours of history and sightseeing
Jana, our tour guide was fantastic. We learned so much about Dresden past and present and were amazed at all the hidden gems in the city that you just wouldn’t know we’re there without someone to show you.
One of the best things about the tour is the price, it is a small price to pay for such a great introduction.

Debbie & I did your 11am English tour on Thursday 11th October. We enjoyed the tour content. The guide – Janna was very knowledgeable and passionate about Dresden, but with a good sense of humour to go with it.
Happy for you to use this on your web site. (Oct 2012)
