ERLEBEN SIE DRESDEN
I would like to introduce myself to you as a tourist guide and tourism agency in Dresden. 13 years ago I started my own business and ever since work as a tour guide.
Get to know which paths led me to become a tour guide in Dresden
I was born and raised in Dresden over 40 years ago and used to live the most time of my life in this beautiful town – also nicknamed “Florence of the Elbe River”.
I left for two longer trips. After I finished high school I went to the U.S. to work there as an AuPair (live-in nanny) for one year. I improved my English language skills and explored not only New Orleans and its surroundings with „my“ children and new family. They are still in my heart. I also love to travel and keep up my English language skills.
Back in Dresden , Germany in 1998 I started studying Transport Economics at the Technical University Dresden. Two of my majors were Tourism and English. I was introduced to the tourism branch in Dresden quickly. So I worked for different travel agencies, tour operators and the official tourism board of Dresden.
In the middle of my studies I took a half year break to go to Louisiana again. I was accepted for an internship at the Louisiana Office of Tourism and proud to work for the Welcome Centers of this state.
After I finished university I worked for a local destination management company which was quite an exciting job.
Besides school, studies and work, I was involved in volunteer work at the canoe club „Verein Kanusport Dresden e.V.“ for many years. Today I enjoy the spare time with my own children. We love to explore Dresden and its surroundings including 6 children’s eyes.
My qualifications as a tour guide
I improve my guiding skills through seminars and lectures. A seminary that stayed on my mind was “Guiding disabled groups and guests”. So I am able to offer a wider variety of tours. In the year 2013 I received the highest level of qualification for tourist guides in Europe. It is the DIN EN certificate as tourist guide for the region of Dresden.
Additionally “Erleben Sie Dresden private tours” has been honored with the “European Award” 2017 and 2018 in the category “Tour Operator of the Year/ Dresden, Germany” as well as “Tour Company of the Year 2018 in Saxony” by Travel & Hospitality Awards 2018.
Moreover you find us on the travel platform Tripadvisor and get a better feeling for our service and guided tours. Many guests left their reviews.
Dear visitors of Dresden and dear (new) Dresdeners,
For some years now, I have been studying a lot about the history of the city of “Arts and Culture”. I still discover many interesting facts, also thanks to the questions I get asked during our tours. Therefore I would love to share this knowledge with you during my tours. I like to get into contact with my guests, having more of a dialogue than a lecture.
On foot, by coach or a little more sportive – biking along the Elbe River.
Just Guided Tours – the way you like it.
Your tourist guide Jana Malschewski-Boehm
