Our guide (an American woman who had lived in Dresden for over 20 years) was excellent! We took the tour 26 Jan 2020 at 12:30. I believe we had 9 in our tour. Unfortunately I can’t remember her name, but she did a beautiful job weaving history, architectural details and stories of Dresden together in our tour. Such a delight!
Ingrid was fantastic. Having been born in Dresden, she had extensive knowledge of the history and many stories. Her humor was great! We really enjoyed our tour, even though we had already walked the area previously. Highly recommend!
