We had a fun filled day with our guide Heidi discovering Dresden. Especially loved driving through the local neighborhood where many early mansions still stand. Our guide took us up into the hills to the viewing platform from the loschwitz funicular where we could get a great overview of Dresden. We were awkstruck by the reconstructed buildings that had been leveled during the war. So much building still continuing today. One of the most beautiful cities we have been to. Thank you Heidi!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Good evening Ed, thank you very much for your wonderful evaluation. It was our pleasure guiding you and showing you my hometown in all facets. And we re really happy that you liked it. And hopefully you had a great continuation of your tour to Munich. Thank you again and we hope to meet you one day again heren in Dresden!

We have been on private tours in a number of EU cities, and Heidi' tour of Dresden takes first prize. My husband and I and our two 20-something sons took a half day tour, which felt like a satisfying all-day tour by the end. Heidi's pride in and love for the city were evident. Her personal involvement in the reconstruction effort was obvious, even before a fellow tour guide briefly stopped us to introduce his client to her. Heidi's ability to relate and compare her GDR experience was priceless!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jenifer, thank you very much for your rating. I am ver much impressed. I have not done anything else like guiding you in the city where I was raised. But I am happy to learn about the history we have passed and which is part of our lifes. Anytime you wish to come back you are warmly welcome. Best regards, Heidi

Heidi's cheerful and entertaining personality made learning so much fun on our Dresden City Tour. Her wealth of knowledge combined with personal stories of growing up in East Germany during the Cold War made history come to life. She valued every question and helped us understand the history of Dresden and Germany in the context of its art, architecture, government, religion, etc. Dresden was basically destroyed at the end of WWII and it was amazing to see how it has recovered. Highly recommend.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Alan, many thanks for your charmy comment on my tour. It was my pleasure to give the tour to open minded people like you interested basically in everything. I wish you all the best and hopefully one day will meet again! Thank you again, Heidi
Stephen AdlerCHAPPAQUA, NEW YORK, United States
Heidi is an excellent guide whose presentation on Dresden is shaped by the fact she has spent her life in the area living through the post WWII and the fall of Communism eras. She has been an active participant in her community and it is apparent in her cultural and historical presentation. Her English is excellent and it was a pleasure to be with and learn from her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Stephen, many thanks for your very positive and impressive comment! It was a pleasure guiding you and what an interesting discussion we had! This is why I like so much working for Tours by locals, the clients- like you and your wife- are just well informed, critical and open minded! So long, Heidi

(4 or 5 stars is arbitrary.) The tour was adapted to my personal needs & wishes, & took the form of a drive around & through the city and a free conversation consisting of the interchange of ideas, not a pre-prepared monologue by the guide. Frau Heidi seems well informed on a wide variety of subjects, and took obvious trouble to satisfy my wants. The vehicle (small bus) was comfortable.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Karel, thank you very much for your comment. It was a very interesting tour with you because it covered so many different topics of the city´s history. I hope you could enjoy your stay furtheron in Dresden and you are doing well, Best regards, Heidi
Heidi was very informative and personable. We took in alot and moved quickly to see as much as possible. We enjoyed hearing from someone from the former eastern block as everyone looks at things from a different perspective. Would highly recommend her.
