What people are saying about Düsseldorf
The scavenger hunt through the city of Düsseldorf has us all 6 people. liked it very much. Good detailed information about the respective regions and districts. Very nicely worked out. Tip: You should always have read everything from the cards, otherwise you run more than necessary. But we found everything, albeit sometimes on a second attempt. There is still the NAVI on the cell phone. We can only warmly recommend it for those who like to have a few hours of fun with free time management
Meanwhile my 4th tour with the Segway through different cities. We were all warmly welcomed and very well briefed before we went on the Düsseldorf tour including a break in the old town. Unfortunately very entertaining as it is over much too quickly. Thank you for the beautiful day that we will never forget.
We liked it a lot. This was the first time we did a tour like this and would do it again ...
To see everything beautiful and interesting without walking
Everything worked out great and was extremely interesting!
