What people are saying about Stuttgart

Hello, I had an appointment with Utha on Thursday for a guided tour in the market hall. 1.5 hours were entertaining, interesting and entertaining. Almost exclusively Utha Becker, our “Guidin” takes part in it! Very professional, not hackneyed and exciting, Swabian. For my partner and I, a perfect day for our 6th year together! Thanks for that. scarlet

Beautiful round including through the bean district. According to the description, children from the age of 6 can participate. I would raise the age limit to 12 years. It was too scary for our almost 10 year old son! For us adults it was an informative tour with nice sights. The guide moderated great and traveling with you!

I've never had such a great guide, Ms. Zander was great, we learned so much that was worth knowing and interesting, and with a lot of humor. It was really fun, many thanks to Martina Zander. Sincerely, Nancy Sharpe
