Private Dresden Day Trip from Berlin
Great little town to visit if you have extra time while in Berlin. Viator is the place to get your booking done. Our driver Gonzolo came punctually to pick us up with a 2-hr drive to Dresdan to meet our local guide Tom for a 1.5 hr walking tour and 2.5 hr free time on our own before Gonzolo drove us back to Berlin. Great driver and fun time in Dresdan.

Not enough of the city

Private Dresden Day Trip from Berlin
It was a bit of a disappointment while the driver Gonzalo was excellent and the tour guide Miriam was pretty knowledgeable the entire tour went around a small square for the entire 2 hours. Granted there were another 2 hours given to explore the city and it left a feeling that there was so much more to see. Another reason for such feeling is that it was a private tour and itinerary could be easily changed.

A quick tour of Dresden

Trip from Prague to Dresden
A good but brief tour of the city. The old town in Dresden is small and easily walked. However although we had a few hours in the city it was not enough time to visit all the sites we wanted to explore in depth. Our tour guide Katrina was very good and provided a lot of background information.

Dresden is tiny but cute. It’s a two your bus ride, one and a half hour tour and several hours in your own.

Trip from Prague to Dresden
Lovely opportunity to learn about what happened in Dresden in the war. Lots of historical buildings, an opportunity to also see buildings rebuilt after the town was bombed. Beautiful church, well worth a visit, unfortunately the cript was closed on our visit. We explored the painting gallery & sculptures. Some people went clothes shopping but we chose other things to do. We were concerned as we didn’t have euros, it’s fine though as we paid for coffees by card and used the toilets in the cafe as they were free to use. Our guide did say we would probably need euros for ice creams bought from a street vendor, so something to be mindful of.
