The tour is highly recommended! It was not only interesting and instructive, but also a lot of fun. Ms. Wahl is a super warm guide who took a lot of time to answer all of our questions.

City guides told many stories and anecdotes and didn't even check the time. Specialties were well selected, but those who know Russian bread from the past will be disappointed.

The weather was beautiful that day and the journey, the service and the food were also very nice. I would do this trip again anytime I'm here.

Very good tour of Dresden. With small culinary samples and a lot of knowledge from the guide.

Very pleasant tour, slow traveling on the river. Gastronomic care very good.
