What people are saying about Stuttgart

Young Grandkids joined me in a roundtrip adventure and while I enjoyed the views, they could play UNO and checkers and point out the cool workings of the locks going up and down. The Vineyards looked a little dry but admiring the cliffs and many steps among them was something for us all. Many Bikers joined along the stops for bier, wine or coffee until all the cakes were gone. We had very nice table service for lunch and the Chef was pleased with his compliments. The kids were please that they did not run out of ice cream.

That was 2 relaxed hours, enough information but not constant loudspeaker announcements. Food (Maultaschen) was delicious and we liked the idea behind it, everything regional - including the drinks.

Nice ride on the Neckar. Interesting comments from the speaker. Nice personel. You were served great. A successful trip without stress.

The trip was great, the staff is very friendly, offered drinks, everything was fine

Very good care by getyouurgide and punctual departure
