This tour was excellent! Jan still offered the tour even though I was the only one who signed up that day. Because it was just the two of us and we were hiking quickly, he offered a longer alternate route that was great. Jan was really easy to talk to and is super knowledgable about the area. I loved the views at Bastei Bridge. The arch had a great view too and we enjoyed a beer at the top before heading to lunch. The lunch had plenty of options even for vegetarians and was delicious and filling. The boat tour was pretty and Jan translated all the info into English that the boat tour guide gave in Czech. It's obvious that Jan has been doing this a long time. He has great relationships with all the service workers you encounter on the tour and it's so organized you don't have to do any thinking or planning. It was such an easy day where he did all the work and I just got to admire the scenery and hang out. It was an excellent tour and I would definitely recommend it!

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.

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!
