What people are saying about Stuttgart

Great day, very nice staff. You have no Zeitlimmet, if it takes longer while hiking that's no problem. We really liked the diversity as a family (2 adults + 2 children 9 + 11). The hiking trails were beautiful with great views of the Neckar and the vineyards. A clear recommendation from us!

Fun for young and old!

Was there with my family (30-66 years), we all had a lot of fun! Despite the bad weather, we were able to do everything because the organizers reacted flexibly to all weather conditions. It was a great day !!!

It was really nice! Processing without problems! The staff and the location great. Everything as described. The scooters are very simple city scooters and are really exhausting to drive.

Evy war der perfekte Guide, wir hatten einen wunderschönen unterhaltsamen Nachmittag, den keiner von uns so schnell vergessen wird! Vielen vielen Dank!

Great experience with great games, lots of wine and a great landscape!
