The tour was great. Dieter first instructed us individually on the Scuddy and carefully observed that we drive safely. The parking lot was ideal for practicing. Only then did we leave. Dieter drove shorter and shorter distances with us. He gave brief and informative explanations at each stopping point. In any case, the driving pleasure was not neglected. We can recommend Dieter and the Scuddy Tour to everyone who enjoys a classic city tour with fun moving around quickly. Even in extremely hot temperatures, we had a lot of fun. @Dieter: Thank you for your view of Düsseldorf and the beautiful photos.

Hello, the e-scooter tour was a great success. We were traveling with 6 women and our guide Dieter and that was really great. Dieter explained the scooters to us in a great way and then the ride through Düsseldorf was fun that we will definitely repeat in another city. Greetings from Lorup
