I'm in Dresden right now. It's beautiful bt a little lonely. I don't know how to meet anyone besides the people I work with, and most of them are half my age...I don't know anything about tours but Dresden is a beautiful city and very user friendly. Let me know if you're in town!

I wouldn't bother with a bus tour. The train system is supurb and it is easy to get around. Also you will run into enough Germans that can converse in English if you need directions.

Never been to Essen but Wuppertal, nearby, has a neat century old monorail. Other than that Berlin is a must see.

I went withTrafalgar Tours, cost savers. Cost savers was pretty much the same as the regular priced tour except the hotels where not in the city centre..but I enjoyed the more family run, smaller hotels better, as they had more character and charm.

We started in Frankfurt, then to Austria and Switerland. A Rhine tour was also part of the trip. It was great.

I should also tell you about Essen. It was an old mine processing complex that has been converted into a cultural, artist hub.
It was very cool to walk through it. Germany is really up on conservation and not so much on tearing everything down and rebuilding as we are in North America. One part of this place was called Zollverein.
