A lot of fun

Very friendly staff, quick and uncomplicated instruction. A spontaneous extension of 1 hour was possible without any problems for only 15 EUR. The Twizzy is a real fun mobile and the route preprogrammed in the navigation system leads you past many important sights. Driving on certain blocked roads is also no problem thanks to the corresponding code card (included in the price). A great experience with a lot of fun. Absolutely do it !!!!
