based on 1 reviews

We were a group of 9 colleagues. Were divided into two groups. Our average age about 50 years. The organization was very good. A great concept that enabled us to get to know the port of Kiel in a very entertaining way. In addition to the effect that we had to solve tasks together as a team, we had a lot of fun and laughed a lot.
