A perfect day trip to Saxon Switzerland and Bohemia! After being picked up right at the hotel, there was a very well planned route to all the sights and with enough breaks and refreshments in between. There are some climbs, but the tour is easy to manage even for the untrained. Sturdy shoes and, if necessary, weatherproof clothing are recommended. We were a well mixed group and tour guide Jan made the day perfect with his charming and attentive manner. 100% recommend!

It was an absolute pleasure taking this tour with Jan! He did the tour with me even though I was the only person booked onto it. He's such a nice guy and it was such a fun day! The views are incredible. A must-see if you're visiting Dresden. You have to see the lovely scenery for yourself. Would recommend it to everyone! Thanks for the amazing day, Jan.

The explanation of all the sights during the bus tour by the tour guide was very interesting and well presented. It's just a shame that the time at Pillnitz Castle (20 minutes) and on the Bastei (60 minutes) is simply too short to go on a discovery tour yourself.

everything was perfectly planned out by Jan and William from picking me up in the morning, the short hikes around the bastei and prebisch gate, to bringing me home in the evening - I really enjoyed it :)

A trip that should not be missed, especially in the company of Jan and William! The beauty of the places is worth the little effort dedicated to this hike!
