Worthwhile, although sometimes a little different from the description

The tour is definitely worth it if you want to get a first glimpse into the history of the city of Dresden and the most famous buildings. You also get some insider tips, some of which we used afterwards. The walk through the Christmas markets was not so exciting. An inside tour of a church could not be realized due to various events in the church and related rehearsals. The guide was very friendly and answered questions of all kinds.

At the Reimann stollen tasting, we assumed a Dresden stollen. Bought the stollen there and by far did not get the quality as tried.

Very extensive and informative tour with a very nice guide
