Day Trip to Dresden

Departing Prague by luxury coach, head toward the Czech Republic's northern border with Germany and enjoy a scenic three-hour drive. You’ll reach Dresden in the late morning.

Since I booked online, I was assured of my trip to Dresden despite the fact that there was only one other passenger. Our driver was also our tour guide. So my fellow tourist and I pretty much received a personal one-on-one guided tour through Dresden!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2015

Worked out very well. I appreciated the time to roam around on my own over and above the guided part.

Great day trip with a relaxed pace. The art gallery is fantastic! Really enjoyed the porcelain museum too.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2015

It took about 2 hours to get there from prague, which wasn't so bad. The city is absolutely beautiful. You get 2 hours to yourself after the tour, and while there didn't seem like there was a lot else to do, it was very pleasant getting to experience the city. I was hoping there would be more attractions with the bombings that occurred here but there wasn't too much. Our tour guide bedr was amazing. He gave a great tour but he also was very entertaining on the trips there and back. I wish I had him as my tour guide for the other tours I went on as well.

The drive, the driver, the sites in Dresden--all were perfect. We would not change a thing. We had been dreaming of visiting this city, rebuilt after World War II, and it was all we hoped for and more. Viator handled everything and made the trip easy and special.
