befriended guides

If we do not speak the language you want or if it is just one of those days when we are fully booked, there are always our friends and colleagues to fall back on. And because we don’t want to hold back on acknowledging praise where it is due, here are some of the positive reviews our guests have given them…

The best specialized walking tour

I took the Richard Wagner tour of Dresden with Saskia. It was a individual tour, so Saskia personalized it and made it so informative and interesting. Not only did she tell me all about Wagner’s life and activities when he lived there but also taught me about his predecessors and contemporaries. Saskia is a musician, so she has the first-hand knowledge of musical life in Dresden, too! As she took me around the old city, Saskia also gave me a preliminary tour of the city, too, so by the end of the 2-hour tour, I had gained so much knowledge, and it made the rest of my stay there immensely enjoyable. I had meant to take the group tour of the old city as well but simply ran out of time because the length of my stay there was limited. I had arranged this tour in advance, and my communication with the company regarding the tour had gone smoothly, too. I definitely recommend Saskia as a guide and the Dresden Walks to anyone who wants to learn about the city and its people.

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.

Best Bike Tour — Personalized

Tom took us through Dresden and showed & explained historical aspects throughout Dresden — even utilizing pictures showing various stages of history, destruction, and reconstruction. He had answers for every possible question posed to him. We didn’t stay in any one place too long and were introduced to many wonderfully interesting hidden gems.

Jana did a marvelous job organizing our bike tour – creating a stunning “unscheduled” cycling tour.

Professional and knowledgeable team. Well done!

Very good overview

The tour has just the right duration to give you an orientation of Dresden. It was for the Altstadt. May be there is something for Neustadt too but I don’t know. Our guide Helga who was actually filling in for the regular guide, was very knowledgeable and was happy to answer our queries. One thing which was particularly noticeable about her was that she paid attention to each individual despite it being quite a big group. Definitely recommended.

“Great Walking Tour”

As someone who is interested in the history of the places we go, I felt this was a great tour. We went with Thilo (I think that is how his name is spelled) and he gave one of the best tours I have ever been on. He helped us understand the origins of the city and did a great job answering any questions we had. I would take this tour over any free walking tour I have been on.

Note: Thilo is a great guide who helps us from time to time…
