Thomas would have to be one of the most enthusiastic and passionate guides I have had the pleasure of meeting. He went above and beyond to verbally illustrate this beautiful city. There wasn’t one question Thomas wasn’t able to answer and his art history knowledge is truely sensational. You MUST visit Thomas as a part of your trip to Dresden. A++++

I highly recommend this tour! Thomas’s many years of experience as a tour guide and background as an art historian are clearly evident. I was happy to have a more casual, small tour rather than joining one of the large groups traveling throughout the city. This was a great way to spend a few hours during a short visit to Dresden!

The tour was awesome, Thomas's way of narrating the history of Dresden will take you back to its old times. He gives in-depth details of hidden architectural beauty in our plan site while balancing the past and present. His local food recommendation was also great and I would 100% recommend the Dresden tour with Thomas.

Thomas led a great tour in excellent English. He easily engaged both my wife and I and our children and kept us engaged the whole time. The tour went above and beyond the Sachsen history that was advertised and included much more about the culture of Dresden / Sachsen and its modern history, based on our questions. Thomas also made great recommendations for the rest of our stay.

Eine tolle Tour durch Dresdens Altstadt. Man Entdeckt Details, die einem sonst nie aufgefallen wären. Witziger und sympathischer Guide mit viel Herzblut und Know-how. Sehr zu empfehlen.

Es war echt klasse nicht nur wie eine typische Touri-Gruppe durch Dresden zu Eiern, es gab super interessante Hintergrund Infos, die dann noch mit Witz und Charme erzählt wurden. Die Tour war super, sie ist wärmstens zu empfehlen.
