Beautiful round including through the bean district. According to the description, children from the age of 6 can participate. I would raise the age limit to 12 years. It was too scary for our almost 10 year old son! For us adults it was an informative tour with nice sights. The guide moderated great and traveling with you!

Dear City Tour Team, My husband and I did the "Blue Route" on his birthday today. It was really an experience for both of us. We got to know many places, sights and stories of Stuttgart. We're both excited. Many Thanks.
