Prague, Czech Republic
Unfortunately I don't really recommend this tour. It is basically a very expensive taxi ride to Dresden. We were the only two people on the tour, apparently another (Russian-speaking) couple had canceled at the last minute. Our "guide" did not speak English well at all and when we would ask her a question she would nod and smile, as if she did not understand. We were basically deposited at the very nice Zwinger museum, given time to roam the city center, with no map or context of what we were seeing, and then met back up with our "guide" and hour before the end of the "tour," where we walked us a couple blocks through the city (which we had already walked our selves), which was about all she could manage given her limited mobility. We had a nice day but there are better tours out there.
Upon arriving to the ArchiCenterShop and attempting to check-in, the staff members at the desk were very confused by our vouchers, which did not seem to match up with any of their records. However, after a few minutes of digging, the staff members eventually concluded that we appeared to have enough documentation to prove we had paid and then issued us tickets. The tour itself was very good. Our docent did a great job leading the group and was clearly very knowledgeable. The pace was brisk, which allowed for as much ground to be covered as possible. Not only did we get to view the outside of many historic buildings, but interestingly we also were able to visit many of the gorgeous lobbies of these buildings as well. Tour participants were all issued headphones to wear so that we could hear our docent speak throughout the tour, however our group experienced problems with our headsets and could only hear the docent when we were standing still, and not when we were walking. All in all the tour was a fun and affordable way to see historic buildings in the city.
