Lovely journey to get there and back . We had to ask for English commentary and it was hard to hear at the front of the boat , maybe change the voice to a male? We found the porcelain factory eventually , when stepping of the boat turn left ( wished we had!) . We arrived at the factory at 1 pm but the next tour was 1.30, we were assured we should be finished by 2pm but didn't want to risk missing the boat , ( I do have a few mobility issues especially on the cobbles) so we gave it a miss and went for an ice cream in a beautiful square and enjoyed the scenery which in hindsight I should have just done st the start. Oh we went down to find the setting off place the day before as you need to exchange your paper/mobile tickets at their info office - you don't find out till the day which jetty you are leaving from and you can exchange your tickets then .
We were the only English speakers in the group of 12 or so participants. Tour guides graciously did the tour in both German and English! Many thanks. They showed us so much of Dresden - so informative! Loved it! The cars are just as you would expect and just as much fun to drive! Be sure to check out the collection of cars they have inside the garage before you depart. Plenty of photo ops for participants. Be prepared to have your photo taken by tourists!
Beautiful Landscape and exciting scenery of castles and Monuments. Only critical Point is the missing Information about the Starting Point where which Boat starts. The Location of the Ticket Shop (at starting point 1) is always to approach for changing the get your Guide Voucher into Tickets which you Need todo before you can enter a boat. Everything Else Went perfect.
Due to I got the E-ticket, I needed to go to the original (first stop) point to got on the bus. and I spent more time to went there. Suggest E-ticket also able to get on the bus at any hop-on-off bus stops instead of first stop.
wonderful ride. very smooth, mostly friendly staff....it was a cool experience and a much more interesting way to get from point A to point B
