    It was a very entertaining and informative tour. We learned a lot about Dresden and got a good insight. It was a completely new type of city tour for us, more like a coffee gossip, the information was served on the side, so to speak, and was not bored with a rattled text. The group was manageable. And our night watchman Doris spoke loudly and clearly, so that we could hear everything well. It was a successful tour all round, which we can warmly recommend to every visitor. Our two teenagers were also in a good mood and in no way bored.

    When we arrived at the meeting point we were greeted with lanterns and a relaxed / funny saying. The group was split up and then the night watchman tour started. The sights were explained to us very professionally. The lady had the group fully under control with her relaxed / witty manner. This is a must when you visit Dresden. Many thanks

    Good idea with difficulties in implementation

    The idea of taking the visitors into the epoch of the night watchmen and entertaining them with the history (s) and behaviors of the time is absolutely impressive, as is the knowledge of our night watchman. Unfortunately, he gladly forgot his assignment, left the epoch and reported about Honecker and his buildings, the Pegida and current exhibitions in Dresden, which took the lead a bit of charm - even if the topics taken were of course also very interesting, but not at the time of the night watchman.
