What people are saying about Kiel

I ride the red bus in every city I visit, because you can learn a lot about the city. Although I have lived in Kiel for many years, the trip was very informative for me and my group. The driver was very nice! We were also lucky with the weather and were able to drive topless. The 90 minutes went by very quickly. Highly recommended.

Great tour, special mention for the accompaniment by the driver who did a great job complementing the audio. Our tip is to take the Adler 1 ferry across the NOK to Holtenau and stop off in one of the rustic pubs there.

The bus ride was very nice and for me, since I had never been to Kiel, it was historically very interesting and also, the city was very lively and very beautiful

Best description of Sta8 Kiel, great route, driver shines with expertise. 24 hours is sufficient.

An excursion that is good to do if you are traveling with a child.
