Fantastic walking tour to help unravel Dresden
"...Seema was so knowledgeable, patient and full of interesting anecdotes, stories and facts - if only history was taught in this fascinating way in school, I'd have aced the subject!

Seema’s name was suggested to me by my colleagues at the Robert Bosch Foundation. They had a Dresden walk with her and were highly impressed.
I had planned the walk for a group of 8 visiting Indian journalists and had requested Seema to mix up the walk with not just information about touristic attractions but also with an extended insight into the history of Dresden during the second world war and also during the times of the German Democratic Republic.
She planned the walk exceptionally well. Being an Indian herself who moved to Germany only a few years ago, it was very interesting to see how she had come to call Dresden her home - a city which has been in the news of late usually for all the wrong reasons. She kept the group engaged with very interesting narratives, connecting the dots of Dresden's history with the larger historical context and left us asking for more. A walk which was planned for 3 hours went on for more than 5 hours. :)
For anyone interested in history and culture of Dresden, Seema is your person.

I would absolutely recommend taking the tour with Seema... she was passionate, knowledgeable, and very kind. Its amazing how much I learned in a short amount of time. The tour will bring your appreciation for Dresden to another level. And its a great way to meet other like minded tourists. Worth it!

This is our 3rd week in Europe and Seema was the best spoken guide so far. She was knowledgeable, interesting. She put the places and people in a broad historical context. In modern times that is destruction, neglect, reconstruction and reconciliation.
Great way to see the city!
Seema brought it (the city) to life with a knowledgeable and passionate tour. She obviously covered the events of February 1945 that completely destroyed the old town - what is there today has been only recently rebuilt, plus she took us much further back in time to when Dresden was the capital of Saxony and had a line of princes that went back 800 years." - GaryShrew, Shrewsbury
Best Walking tour guide yet!
"Seema was knowledgeable, interactive and provided a considered, at times, moving insight into Dresden and its history. She was thoughtful of the group and has a good delivery with a nice pace. I appreciated her well based but not didactic content."- Daphne B
Good overview of the city!
"Seema was a very knowledgable guide who was able to answer the questions given to her. She provided plenty of information about the main sites and gave some helpful hints for us about buying tickets to local attractions, times to go etc. that make visits that little bit easier. - Swanning, A.

It's a must do! Very highly recommended!
"...This is definitely one of the best walking tours I have ever done anywhere. Never met a guide so passionate about the history of the place and eager to share it with others..."- Pooja R, Mumbai, India
Best walking tour!
