What people are saying about Alsace

The day was amazing, and we highly recommend the tour. Our guide, Didier, was delightful. He was very well-informed about the places we visited, was kind, funny, patient, concerned, adapted to the needs of our group, and added so much to our day. We are looking forward to booking additional tours with him in the future. Thank you, Didier,

Great tour. Recommend reservations when stopping for lunch. There was NO ROOM when we stopped and after and hour of wondering from place to place we ate at an outdoor food stand on the ground. Great tour overall, but highly recommend that guides either plan lunch or that guests are informed to plan ahead.

The tour is conducted in small groups (there were 4 of us) which makes it very nice to look around and enjoy the villages. The villages we stopped at were beautiful! Highly recommend this tour as you can cover a lot in a short span of time

Robin was the best tour guide we have met in our day trips in France. He was able to explain the history of the places we have been to, he was knowledgeable and speaks English well.

That was really nice atmosphere and interesting guide. Thank you so much!
