What people are saying about Alsace

My husband and I had a great experience on our Alsace day tour. If you are looking for a way to spend the day seeing and learning about multiple villages in the Alsace area from a local host in a small group setting, this is for you. Dider was our guide and he was amazing - he picked us up in an easy location, drove us safely to each village in a comfortable air conditioned van, showed us the unique and special aspects of each village provided information along the way. He constantly checked in to make sure we were having a good time and if there was anything more or less that we wanted for the day. We were able to explore and feel immersed in each village without being information overloaded with too much information. We did wish that a bit more wine tasting was included (we stopped at one winery at the end of the day) in the tour since we were in the Alsace area, so if you are looking for more of a winery tour this wouldn't be the fit for you. Otherwise, amazing day trip!

Laurent was super friendly, knowledgeable and accomadating. Had a great time on the tour and met a lot of very kind and interesting people as well. Definitely a recommended experience if you ever find yourself in Strasbourg.

A highly recommended tour, especially if you are a group 6-7 persons the boat. The tour started punctual and was fun to relax in the boat and enjoy the tour for around 2 hours.

Didier was amazing. His English was great. He was super engaging and really knew his history. The tour was thoroughly enjoyable. 5 stars.

Great tour guide, wonderful cellars and films and lovely wines! One of the best tours we have had in the last few years
