Jan was awesome - private tour worth the price!

My husband and I booked too late to take the small bus tour version of the trip. We really wanted to do it anyway, and booked a private tour - just the two of us and our driver/guide, Jan. He was awesome. It gave us a chance to connect with a local Czech who had so many good stories and advice to share. Jan loves to travel, too, so it was like having an “insider” guide. He tailored the stops to what we wanted to do. I highly recommend sidetrip tours. Very well managed.

    Elbe Sandstone Mountains

    What we'll do

    The whole area of Elbe Sandstone Mountains offers incredible views. We visit one of the must-see locations - the Bastei Bridge . The bridge was built when the area became popular to visit in the 19th century. From the Bastei rocks and the Bastei Bridge you have a wonderful panoramic view over the mountains and surrounding evergreen forests.

    About Elbe Sandstone Mountains

    The Elbe Sandstone Mountains are situated on the border between Germany and Czech Republic. Both countries have designated the area as a National Park, in Germany the Saxon Switzerland National Park and in Czech Republic the Bohemian Switzerland National Park.

    The mountains here are not very high, the highest peak is the Děčínský Sněžník with 722,8 m on the Czech side. These sandstone mountains are millions of years old and eroded down by wind and water.

    In Dresden, we take a look at the extravagant Zwinger Palace, learn about Dresden Old Town and its legends, and then sit down for a delicious lunch.

    Dresden Old Town

    What we'll do

    During the tour we walk around the historic city center of Dresden. You will see the Royal Residence , the stunning Zwinger Palace , the Dresden Frauenkirche , and the famous Procession of Princes – world’s largest porcelain art work. You will hear stories about August II the Strong and the Second World War during your walk around the town center. In Dresden you will also have time for a lunch break (not included).

    About Dresden

    Dresden has a long history as the capital and royal residence for the Electors and Kings of Saxony. Today Dresden is Saxony’s second biggest city after Leipzig with population around 550 000 people.

    The city is considered one of the most beautiful in Germany. It transformed into a Baroque landmark in the 18th century. This development started under the rule of the legendary king Augustus II the Strong. Most of the historic Dresden had to be rebuilt after the Second World War because much of the city was destroyed.

  • Stop 3: Moritzburg Palace

    We will stroll around Moritzburg Palace to admire the gorgeous views of one of the most magnificent examples of Baroque-style architecture in Germany.

    Moritzburg Palace

    What we'll do

    During the tour we walk around the Moritzburg Palace grounds admiring the garden and the park views. We do not enter the palace but we get a close-up look. On the steps of the palace is also a chance for everyone to find out if they have what it takes to be a fairytale princess by trying on Cinderella’s shoe.

    About Moritzburg Palace

    Moritzburg Palace is named after Duke Moritz of Saxony who built a small hunting lodge here in the 16th century. The king August II the Strong had the current Baroque-style palace built in the 18th century as his country seat.

    The palace is surrounded by a stunning park and gardens area. Ironically, none of the plans (and there have been many) for the garden have been fully finished, and the work with them is still continuing.

Personalized Side trip

This was a great decision to travel to Berlin from Prague! Petr our guide was very knowledgeable and showed us the Sandstone mountains in Saxon Switzerland National Park. The views were amazing! Then we made a stop in Dresden Old town where we had lunch at a great German place and we shared more information. Our final stop was in Moritzburg at the Palace. It was a highlight of our day. So beautiful and peaceful. He adjusted his schedule according to our needs and had us in Berlin at our hotel safe and sound! Thank you for such kind and considerate staff! Highly recommend this company to travel with instead of another form of transportation.

Wonderful day of varied activities.

Thank you for our recent trip from Prague to Berlin. We both absolutely loved it. We visited three totally different sites, all in the comfort of an excellent vehicle. We didn't feel rushed and managed to have a taste of beautiful scenery, magnificent Dresden and a castle. Petra was a great driver and guide who accommodated our every wish and made Dresden come to life for us. We recommend this trip to anyone who is happy to take a little longer to reach their destination but is looking for something that adds to their overall experience.
