Very easy to book on line. Very clear explanations of the main attractions. Very easy to hop on and off (although not tried). Highly recommended if you have two hours to spare gave us ideas of other things to do

Evy war der perfekte Guide, wir hatten einen wunderschönen unterhaltsamen Nachmittag, den keiner von uns so schnell vergessen wird! Vielen vielen Dank!

The tour is far more interesting than we expected, e.g. B also through smaller streets and Stuttgart East. Highlight : Swabian language can be set.

Easy way to explore the city and get an overview. The tour guide is off the tape, but the narration is not boring and tailored to the sights.

Very good way to have an overview of the city, taking into account the limitation that there is now with the works of the station
