Was great. Although we have been to Stuttgart many times, this tour enabled us to learn so much more and we found the Swabian translation to be great and funny. We would recommend this event to everyone. Kudos to the organizers and the bus driver, who had to weave his way through the narrow streets with the high volume of traffic.

This bus was easy to find. and the guided tour was sweet. My family and I loved it!

It truly gets you around the city and its historic sights fast.

It was a convenient way of touring the City with my family.

Je le recommend, un super voyage et un super Chauffeur
