What people are saying about Stuttgart

The booking procedure was easy, and friendly! help by very kind staff always available. What I mentioned before.. I would give customers the possibility to get an emergency phone number (mobile number guide) to be used on the day of event. It easily can happen somebody is late or waiting at another place? But with a little heart beat before ;-) finally everything went well, and the good thing is you can always reach somebody from Get yr Guide Team!

I was a little concerned when I read previous reviews that I might have a hard time navigating my way to dock. My fears were abated by excellent directions that came with the activity reminder. The boat, the crew, the service, food snd guests were top-notch. I had an excellent roundtrip and would definitely recommend as a fun memory whether or go solo for relaxation, as a couple’s date or in a group for a party.

Great experience on our city trip (2 adults and boys 7 and 11 years old.) The guide did a great job, was very entertaining even though we overdid it for 30 minutes as many questions arose. We were a group of 8 people in total. Recommended for everyone who is interested in football or a stadium!

Was a very nice experience. The boat is very quiet which makes the trip really relaxing. Prices for drinks and food are perfectly fine. The "highlight" was that you have to go through the lock on the outward and return journey.

Was great fun. Unfortunately, the explanation with the GPS was very poor. Just be persistent and ask! But anytime again...
