An amazing guide and experience in a beautiful national park that straddles Germany AND The Czech Republic 

(REMEMBER your passport/vaccination or other documentation - you cross the border and it may be asked for)



The trip out to the park was about 35 min from central Dresden.



I’d split the excursion into two main parts:



Climb up to the arch - a nice walk up; it’s a good walk that we forged through almost too quickly - our guide Jan was constantly reminding me it’s not a race; so there is more than enough time to make it up with a more leisurely stride than mine. The fresh air and scenery helped moderate that a bit.



Once up there - we took pictures and Jan took pictures of us along the way; it’s a great view and the bridge to the old fort has a LOTR vibe going. 

We stopped in the restaurant at the top for some beer (50/50 as recommended - DELISH!); then headed back down to go to the restaurant reserved for us for lunch. We remained a private tour, but met one of the other tour guide (William) and his charge who was from Italy and spoke great English despite his self-consciousness. 

Lunch was great; the goulash and chicken with risotto were both delicious (as was more beer!).



Walk down to the gorge - another nice walk down; fortunately Jan had moderated me to a relaxed state (beer helped) and got to see pictures of a saint below the path we were on that others walked right by.



The trail eventually led to the boat ride that would take you through the dammed portion of the tributary before it reached the Elbe. 

The boat ride was fun and while in Czech; Jan translated for us and it really is a mix between facts and whimsy. Rock formations were pointed out for different pop-culture characters (Jabba the Hut as one example) and everyone got a kick out of the boatsman that hammed it up as he poled us forward.



It was a great day and I highly recommend Cayman for your tour needs; Jan took care of our every need and you’d be in good hands with him.

The park is amazing! Jan was a knowledgeable and entertaining guide and the day was just magical. It was nice to get back into nature after taking in the city sites.

Superb experience with Jan.

Enjoyed every bit of it. Time well spent.

Nice weather coupled with nice group of people added to the fun. Jan turned out to be a pro in this business and planned meticulously.

Thank you Simona of Cayman Travel for making arangements so I could take this tour even though I was the only one going from Dresden. I was able to join a group of three going from Prague so we made a group of four. This meant that our fantastic guide Sarka could give all of us full attention. Our guide was both entertaining and knowledgeable. Be warned that there is quite a bit of walking: uphill, downhill, stairs... It was a warm and humid day which made it pretty hard work. Well worth it though! The incuded lunch in a nice restaurant was very good with a number of dishes to choose from.

Trip did not live up to the hype we had read in researching before this trip. Our guide, Peter, while pleasant enough seemed more engrossed in his phone than imparting information to guests. Very little information was offered about the places we visited and we felt as if he was simply going through his paces. Also we were concerned that the driver who collected us from Dresden, also pleasant enough, in the morning spent a lot of texting while driving which we found unnerving. Scenery was great although the castle at the end of the bridge was closed which our guide clearly found unexpected but perhaps it was something which the tour operator should have know in advance. Given the price, we expected more. Sorry if this seems negative but we are well-travelled and being honest.

LOVED this tour with Peter - he is a GREAT tour guide! Would highly recommend this tour - I know its a bit pricey but its well worth the money. Peter takes great care of his guests. We only had about 7 people in our group which made it nice. The area he takes you to is so beautiful. The walk isn't too bad. We had a nice drink at one place. Then a great lunch at another place. We had a boat ride. So many things included in this tour!

Amazing day with Jacob! Extremely well organized and super friendly! It was one of the best experience on a day tour I have had with Viator.
Tour involves quite a bit of walking up and down the hill, nothing extreme but you have to be more or less fit. Trust me, the beauty of the area and a great guide's job is worth every minute of it! Highly recommended!

Excellent. A word of caution to the description provided. The walking is strenuous by American standards. It is understood by those of is who travel a lot that generally Germans do a lot of hiking and walking, so for them this would be routine.

This was a wonderful and rewarding tour. This was quite a long tour, almost 12 hours. Make sure that your are well prepared for that, such as proper shoes. Also advisable to have walking sticks for older folks.
The tour guide was excellent and the included lunch was also very good.

We had amazing time during our trip to National Park. Jan our tour guide from Cayman Tours was Czech, but his English was excellent. He was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable. There were 10 people in our group, and both drivers and guide made whole experience absolutely wonderful.
We absolutely loved the hike, the food, the views. The boat ride at the end of the hike with humorous commentary was absolute delight. Highly recommended.
