A full on, but very beautiful day out in nature. I like the way we were totally looked after with the pick up from our hotel, water and snacks provided. A guide to walk us through the hikes and provide some local history. A small group that meant we could have conversations with others and compare and comment about what we saw and did. Both the vehicle driver and the guide made us very welcome and made sure that the pace of hiking was suitable. A range of activities that made the day varied and interesting. Thoroughly recommend it if you want to get away from the city bustle and enjoy hiking. Booked some time before the date of the tour and the tour company sent me messages leading up to the day before our tour. Very reassuring and great to know that they care.

First, my driver Paul, was great! He picked me up at my hotel in Dresden, and drove me to meet the others in the group at Bastei bridge. He was knowledgeable and very entertaining, and welcomed me with plenty of water and snacks. He was a lovely Czech man, practicing his English, and did very well. When I met the group at Bastei, I then meet my guide Josef. A brilliant Czech fellow with a perfect communication in English. He knew so much about the area, plants, trees, birds, geology and history. The perfect guide for the day. The tour itself was amazing! It's a perfect way to spend the day. It's a long day, and very exhausting, with so much walking up up up! But the sights and views are worth every step you will take. This tour includes everything from bathroom fees, entry fees for the destinations, snacks and water, delicious lunch, refreshing drinks at the top of your climb, and all transportation. The people who developed this tour have thought of your every need. Well done Uniline
