What people are saying about Dresden Cathedral

Instead of a superficial run-through to all the big landmarks, and an endless stream of "this was built by x, in the year y", this tour instead gives you the depth, history and theory to really understand and appreciate the baroque buildings and art of Dresden. You can definitely tell that the guide, Thomas, is an art historian as art is a big focus of this tour - but don't worry if that's usually not your thing! He explains everything well and in a funny way. The tour ended up taking almost 3 hours (instead of 2, as the website says), but no one complained.

Our tour guide, Thomas, was absolutely amazing! He was informative and entertaining. He toured with us an extra hour, and there was not a dull moment—he made everything interesting, telling stories, using pictures, and even using modern-day references so we could better understand Saxon history. He even brought German cake for the tour group! Highly, highly recommend.

Thomas is already a happy nature, with a broad background of knowledge and said cheerful nature, the time flew by in no time and we gained a broad understanding of Dresden, especially the last 400 years were very interesting, .. above all the pictures and stories behind the events,..!

We thoroughly enjoyed Thomas’s tour. We especially appreciate the art history knowledge he shared with us.

The tour was very interested and guide was excellent
