we, a friendly group of 6 people, were really looking forward to the tour of the old town with Mrs. Tröster. Our high expectations were far exceeded in every respect. Her wealth of knowledge historically and in terms of art is enormous and her way of communicating is very understandable and paired with a healthy mother wit. The next time we visit Dresden, we will contact Ms. Tröster again.

Very interesting and entertaining city tour

Booking and processing went great and uncomplicated. Our city guide picked us up at the hotel on time and brought us closer to Dresden in a wonderful way. On our 2 hour tour through the old town, she told us a lot of interesting facts, was friendly and very flexible. On top of that there were great tips for restaurants and excursions in the surrounding area. We also loved the before and after pictures of the destruction and reconstruction of the city. This is the only way to get an idea of the perseverance and love with which many buildings have been restored. If you are looking for a private and very friendly and competent city tour away from the large groups, Ms. Tröster is in good hands. Thank you for this exciting morning and best regards from Hanover

Very interesting for adult groups - not suitable for children.

The tour was planned for a long time - for 32 children and adolescents between the ages of 12 and 16. Train connections - with appropriate registration for group trips in the course and daily routine. Shortly before the appointment, the organizer asked whether the tour could be postponed. Because this was not possible, the tour guide was changed. An 86 year old man came - at 39 degrees. He had really interesting details to report. Definitely exciting for an adult group. After 45! Minutes around the Frauenkirche we switched to the Brühlsche Terrasse, from there we went to the Fürstenzug, where we ended the tour. On the one hand, the children had great concerns, because for an older gentleman staying at the temperatures was certainly a great physical exertion. On the other hand, the children have not seen many things in the old town and to the few things they saw they got a flood of minimalist information that was difficult to digest.
