What people are saying about Saxony

Excellent day trip - I looked at many options for a trip to Bohemia and Saxon Switzerland and this company by far had the best stops. All sites were amazing and views breathtaking. We went for the private tour and were with William - he was extremely knowledgeable (and knew all the best spots for beautiful pictures) and made the day perfect for us! Highly recommend.

Everything was just lovely. Very kind and professional tour guides. They really made sure that we had a great and comfortable journey, and we did! I definitely recommend this operator. The place is absolutely breathtaking and definitely worth a visit.

We walked around Leipzig learning about the story of the food and the places we were walking by. I loved the stories the guide told us and the food we had. Also ITs an amazing price for what you get :)

The views were amazing and we loved the food and beer. Our guide was awesome as well. He was super easy-going and friendly. We're definitely happy we decided to come out.

Jan was the best guide we could ask for and the whole trip was one of the best we ever had; beautiful and exciting. Thanks again for everything ❤️
