What people are saying about Baden-Württemberg

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!

Great and for beginners slightly demanding tour. My girlfriend and I had lots of fun. The guides Herbert and Christina did a great job. We can definitely recommend this activity.

The employee was very nice and we were allowed to stay on the water a little longer because the jetty was occupied by other canoes. A great day :) I would book there again.

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

First time on a Segway. It was a lot of fun, good introduction and nice guide
