Great trip!!! Had great fun!!! Horny city discovers Mannheim, the city of two rivers. After a short but very good introduction to the Segway, we set off. The weather is awesome, the people are cool and so we learned a lot about the city of Mannheim. We had successfully ended the trip on the Rhine terrace with a great lunch and a panorama on the Rhine.

Was a very nice Segway tour with many interesting impressions. Our scout Jörg was relaxed and explained everything very well and took his time. Thanks very much! Stephen and Mark

Very nice guide! She always made sure everyone understood her and followed along. She also had a few pictures with her as additional illustrative material.

The map on the voucher should be more detailed so that you don't have to search for the meeting point forever.

Very convincing guide who could really answer every question. Thanks very much!
