What people are saying about Alsace

I absolutely loved this tour. Our guide Didier was fun and very knowledgeable about all of the stops. The four villages are each beautiful in their own way, and Didier led us around the most famous and historical sights but allowing us to set the pace, as well as showing us the good photospots for the gram. The lunch restaurant was very nice and reasonably priced. Wine tasting was fantastic and the winery let us try a number of fine samples off their menu. 8 hours went by in a flash and I came home with so many great pictures. Really recommend this tour if you have a spare day in Colmar or are looking to see a village or two in the Alsace region. Thanks Didier

If you don't have a car, this tour allows you to get to know Baden Baden, get to know a little about the Black Forest and see an overview of the German wine route. Jerôme, the driver and guide, is charming, pleasant, he is attentive all the time to inform you about what interests you, that you are comfortable, satisfied ... A good tour, to get an idea of this area, especially thanks to the guide.

Didier is an excellent guide, he provides you with enough information to keep you interested without overwhelming you, and the pace of the visits is very good. It makes you feel like you're out for a walk with a friend. I highly recommend him and my wife Martha and I greatly appreciate his kindness and sense of humor. The best way to get to know Alsace!!!

Segway is hard on the feet. The feet join and begin to hurt. Nevertheless, the tour is an experience. You see a lot of Strasbourg and learn a lot about the history of Strasbourg. Without D Segway, the distance in 2 hours would not be feasible. The guide also takes photos. Super great.

Fantastic trip. The trip was fun and educational. I would definitely recommend it.
