Know More about this tour

Stretch your holiday across two countries and get a glimpse of the gorgeous scenery of eské stedohoí (Central Bohemian Highlands) with a trip to the German city of Dresden, just across the northern border. Originally a small fishing village, Dresden grew to become a spa town, a royal residence and finally, the capital city of Saxony. A simple day trip can show you the similarities and differences between these two neighboring countries. During World War II, Dresden suffered a massive air raid that almost destroyed it entirely; however, the city has been immaculately reconstructed and rebuilt.

We'll walk around Dresden's most important historical monuments, including the Zwinger and Albertinum galleries, the Hofkirche and Frauenkirche churches and the Semperoper Opera House and then you´ll have a plenty of time to explore this beatiful city on your own.

    Lovely opportunity to learn about what happened in Dresden in the war. Lots of historical buildings, an opportunity to also see buildings rebuilt after the town was bombed. Beautiful church, well worth a visit, unfortunately the cript was closed on our visit. We explored the painting gallery & sculptures. Some people went clothes shopping but we chose other things to do. We were concerned as we didn’t have euros, it’s fine though as we paid for coffees by card and used the toilets in the cafe as they were free to use. Our guide did say we would probably need euros for ice creams bought from a street vendor, so something to be mindful of.

    Tour picked us up at our hotel which made it much more convenient. Pleasant ride from Prague to Dresden with knowledgeable and friendly guide. Very enjoyable walking tour of beautiful old city and just the right amount of on our own time to explore those buildings we were interested in.

    A good but brief tour of the city. The old town in Dresden is small and easily walked. However although we had a few hours in the city it was not enough time to visit all the sites we wanted to explore in depth. Our tour guide Katrina was very good and provided a lot of background information.

    Dresden is tiny but cute. It’s a two your bus ride, one and a half hour tour and several hours in your own.

    Let me start by mentioning that this trip should be considered as a convenient way to visit Dresden from Prague without the hassle of figuring out public transport or wasting time finding places. Also, this must be considered as a trip which gives enough free time to explore Dresden as per your own discretion, more than a fully guided tour, which works out pretty fine actually, if you have a good plan ready. This review will mostly try to help you to chalk out a suggested good plan in conjunction with this trip to maximise your Dresden experience. Another great advantage is the hotel pick-up, which takes a lot of stress out of this day and makes it even better, although, do not expect too much personal attention unlike smaller group tours. I will begin by describing our own experience. We got picked up punctually from our hotel and brought to the downtown location of the office of Premiant tours. There you will be put on one of the several buses of Premiant tours, some of which possibly go to other destinations outside of Prague, so make sure you get on the correct bus (this is important, I stress!), as this bus might also include passengers for another spa town called Teplice, which is north of Prague and where, some of the passengers of a different itinerary do get off (the same tour bus could be serving an assortment of tourists bound both for Teplice as well as Dresden, so, stay put if you are heading to Dresden). However, within about an hour and 20 minutes, your bus will first arrive at Teplice, which is also regarded as the Paris of Czech republic because of its beauty and it is basically a spa town. There will be hardly a 5 minute stoppage here to let off the people getting out here, so grab the opportunity to take some pictures of downtown Teplice, if interested. Thereafter, the bus will continue towards Dresden, incorporating a 15 minute restroom/tea-coffee break at a gas station in between. Thus, you arrive nice and fresh in Dresden, roughly by 11:30, all going well. Thereafter, you will leave the bus at a coach parking close to the Zwinger museum, and this will be your pick up point too when departing. Take note of the exact location (it is simple enough and well explained by the guide). Your short guided tour will commence here, taking you through the Zwinger complex, past the Semperoper, Katholische Hofkirche, Dresden Castle and the Fürstenzug which is the famous magnificent mural of a mounted procession of Princes, the rulers of Saxony, on an inner-city wall. After this, you will arrive at the stunning Frauenkirche Dresden, regarded as the most beautiful Evangelical church anywhere in the world and which, like most of Dresden's old monuments, was razed to the ground during the World War II and subsequently restored to its original glory. At this point, the guided tour pretty much ends, with you being given the option to either go on your own or follow the guide to proceed towards the Altmarkt or the much sought after shopping district of Dresden. Since our main purpose was tourism and not shopping, we decided to get into the queue for the Frauenkirche (make sure you are at Gate D, and take note of these entrance timings, which are on the hour and free, but strictly regulated, so try to get inside without having to wait for the next hour, which is what we did). My suggestion is that as soon as you’ve covered this unmissable church, head straight back towards the waterside entrance of Zwinger where these hop-on-hop-off tour buses are queued up and get onto one of them (cost €20 per person, 90 minute duration for the full-circuit, with some superb headphones and crystal clear commentary provided in these hi-tech well-kept double deckers). Grab a seat on the upper-deck. Avoid the boat cruise, if you are interested in a more insider view of Dresden and its suburbs both south and north of the Elbe river. The commentary on these tours will blow your mind and deliver so much knowledge about Dresden that you will feel like an expert, not to mention the stunning vistas of the city that you will catch throughout the journey. Frankly speaking, there are so many museums and places of interest in Dresden, that it is impossible to do them all in one day, but the bus ride is the next best way of utilizing your limited time in this city. Another strong recommendation is to hop off at the stop 14 (just past the Loschwitz Bridge Blaues Wunder) and find this superb Bakery called Kaffe Wippler where the world famous Dresdner cake is a ‘’must-try’’ delicacy. In fact, we utilized this stoppage as our lunch break grabbing some delicious quiches, pastries and the renowned Eierschekentorte, then taking some pictures of the Blaues Wunder Bridge before taking the next available double decker bus to continue our remaining loop to arrive well in time for the departure (which will be at roughly 16:45 hrs sharp). Now, if you still have the time, you can get into one of the many museums or just shop for some souvenirs. On the return journey from Dresden, you can get a nice nap to arrive fresh back to Prague. After our return, we didn’t avail the lift back to our hotel which was offered, but got off at Namiesti Republic to enjoy some more of the wonderful Prague, having a wonderful Thai dinner at the Palladium Shopping Mall.

    This tour is quite good... our tour guide Karolina is very good at explaining about Dresden history, and even she guide and tour us around Dresden town... although Dresden is a small quiet and not so crowded town rather than in Munich... she also showed us around where to eat, where to buy cheap stuff, where to do shopping... after this tour, she told us that will have free cruise on the next day if we show her name card. We did the free cruise on the next day and it was fantastic before we board back home... we had a wonderful time with this tour... much appreciated and highly recommended

    Our tour to Dresden is quite nice. Although the drive is long with a supposedly 3-hour drive, our driver was able to cut it down to 2.5 hours each way. Along the way, the tour guide also provided much-needed history and background for the visit. What I liked about this tour is that the facility is quite good. The speakers are loud, and we could all hear the guide clearly. The only thing I did not appreciate so much is reckless driving. The driver was driving very fast at times and also cutting into dangerous intersections. However, at the same time, he got us safely to our destinations and back and in record time.
