What people are saying about Stuttgart

Overall rating

4.1 / 5

based on 74 reviews

I was a little concerned when I read previous reviews that I might have a hard time navigating my way to dock. My fears were abated by excellent directions that came with the activity reminder. The boat, the crew, the service, food snd guests were top-notch. I had an excellent roundtrip and would definitely recommend as a fun memory whether or go solo for relaxation, as a couple’s date or in a group for a party.

The guide was very kind and knowledgeable. It was a nice mix of urban/Cannstatt history and an exploration of regional foods. I signed up late (English only speaker) and the guide was gracious enough to accommodate me by catching me up in between sites, and I got by with the Google Translate app, but if you don't speak German I recommend signing up earlier so they can prepare for a non-German speaker.

I've done several SUP tours with Jones and this was my first time at the Testival. Since I want to buy my own board, the testival was perfect for me. During the 2 hours you could test many different boards stress-free or receive individual advice. Expert advice and lots of fun at the same time, anytime again!

The background noise around it was often so bad that you couldn't always understand the woman chattering

Great guided tour with Kunigunde! I can only recommend!
