My wife and I recently spent a day in Dresden. Since we only had one day, we wanted to have an introductory tour of the city that would provide us some history and background, while giving us a foundation to spend part of the day exploring by ourselves. I found Jana, from Erleben Sie Dresden, online and contacted her via email. She responded very promptly and I scheduled a 2 hour private tour with her.
We really enjoyed our time with Jana. She was personable, knowledgeable, and well organized. Our tour provided us with a lot of information and it made our time in Dresden very worthwhile. We arrived by train, not knowing anything about the city. Jana met us at the train station and she was waiting for us right on the platform as our train arrived. She showed us many of the major sites, oriented us to the city, explained a lot of the history of Dresden, and gave us suggestions for restaurants and sites to visit ourselves after our tour was finished. She also brought a book of photos with her that showed the city through its original pre-war state and then its various stages of destruction and reconstruction. We found this particularly interesting.
Jana is an excellent guide that I highly recommend. We would use her again if we travel back to Dresden.
