Fantastic tour and great knowledge from Alex on the way to Dresden and while walking round.
Was also really good to wander round the city on your own to look at some of the sights in more detail or enjoy the local cuisine.
Well worth doing, if you want to experience more of Germany
Great tour, great memories, tour guide Shlomit is awesome, the way she narrated history was like watching movie, thumbs up and highly recommended.
This tour was fantastic. Our guide, Asaf, was full of interesting information so I learned a lot. Dresden is very beautiful. I really enjoyed having a guide at the beginning and then have a lot of free time to explore by myself.
I highly recommend this tour.

Excellent tour guide. Be aware that in one afternoon you can only get an overview of the historical city center and maybe see one museum. There is a lot to see there.
Great trip. Alex was an amazing guide. Dresden is a beuatiful city, definitely worth to see!
While is was a long day, it was worth it. Our guide, Alex, provided a great detailed description of the history of Dresden on the trip down and we had a great walking tour when we arrived. We were given plenty of free time to walk the city ourselves and visit the museums/galleries. A definite for those interested in seeing amazing architecture and knowing more about WWII history.
We booked this trip before we travelled to Berlin as to be honest, I didn't really think it's a place we would necessarily choose to go to for a city break, so thought a day trip was ideal.
Our Aussie guide Alex was brilliant and very knowledgeable, especially as she majored in history, so was able to give us loads of information with great relish, that we might never have found out! Even though the tour was over 10 hours long, Alex made the day very enjoyable and we had great fun. She took us to the most important places and explained about the devastation during WWII together the rebuilding of the city. Even though so much was destroyed the city still has a magical charm about it and the surrounding countryside is lovely, so maybe a longer trip could be incorporated next time. We had a few hours to ourselves to explore the city, which was really nice to do and to browse in the porcelain shops, which were fabulous.
We had an amazing day and would highly recommend it. It's most definitely well worth taking this tour and hopefully you'll get Alex as your guide.
We had a terrific day trip to Dresden and our guide certainly knew her stuff. The walking tour around Dresden was very informative and we learnt lots that we never knew before. I have to admit I had never heard of Viator before this trip and was a bit dubious as to whether they were going to be any good but the reviews from fellow travellers made me book, and we certainly were not disappointed. Thank you.

I liked how they organised things.We were quite many so they arranged two buses. I liked the guide Nadaf, he was very informative and funny. On the way he told us about Berlin, places we passed through and Dresden, combining history, geography and economy, so we could have a pretty good picture. We started in Dresden with a well paced walk, he took us through the old town, and then we had time on our own, which I spent visiting the Palace.
This is a long day trip, but well worth the effort, as Dresden is a most interesting and beautiful city. Our guide, Alex, was entertaining and informative, kept us awake on the outward trip and let us sleep on the return journey. The tour of Dresden was extensive and included many highlights that we had wanted to see, but also provided sufficient free time for shopping, cake discoveries etc.
I already submitted a lengthy review on the day after I took the tour. The tour was very informative and enjoyable and very well organised and definitely to be highly recommended.
Fabulous !! our guide Alex was amazing !!! very informative and i learned a lot during the trip from Berlin to Dresden. Dresden itself is gorgeous and i would come back.
This is one highlight of our trip. Dresden is a lovely city with so much history behind it. Our guide Alex made it more interesting with her extensive and informative commentary. She was a tireless tourguide.
Excellent, bright, knowledgeable tour leader. Much to see and learn, with architecture and history to fill one's heart and mind. Tour leader was a perfect hostess and human being
This tour was very well-managed and our guide was knowledgeable about Dresden history and German history, in general. The coach ride to and from the city was comfortable and plenty of time was given to explore the city on your own.
If you take this our and you are lucky enough to have Alex as your guide you are in for a wonderful day. Alex is a female, by the way.. As we left the City of Berlin bound for Dresden she filled us in on early and contemporary history related to the area. The drive to Dresden went by in a flash. Alex escorted the tour through the City Center - again with detailed commentary about the buildings and that families that contributed to the rich history of Dresden. We had some free time with lunch on our own. We went to the market square for a quick sausage lunch and then enjoyed dessert at the bakery made famous by the movie The Grand Budapest Hotel. There are two restored churches in the City Center: a Protestant Church and a Catholic Church. Don't miss the Protestant Church - it is really unique inside and very beautiful.
An exceptionally well organised and run tour with a stunning city to visit and enjoy
We loved this tour
Excellent tour. We only had the opportunity for a one day tour of Dresden and this met our expectations. The guide was particularly excellent. I would recommend this tour to others.
I greatly enjoyed the Dresden Day Trip from Berlin. Alex was witty and insightful. I am quite a history buff and just loved the overview of Martin Luther, the Augustus legacy, and the WWII history. This was a great day and I feel fortunate that I had this experience.
Wonderful excursion. Alex was very knowledgeable and communicated clearly. She is a wealth of information and very personable, despite the large size of the group.
A visit to Dresden is a must and this tour was extremely good. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. Highly recommended
