A lovely tour, we had a great guide and plenty of time to take in the views and wander throughout the villages. Apart from the 4 villages where we stopped to visit, we also passed through several others and our guide made sure to stop at panorama points and to offer info. There was also a wine tasting set-up at the end of the tour ( where you could also buy wine), and in the last village we visited there is a large regional wine store, so plenty of opportunities for buying Alsacian wines, The recorded audio offers a lot of information about the history of Alsace, and each and every village we passed through, so overall a well-organised, informative and picturesque day!

Loved this! Exceeded my expectations of the historical Alsace villages. It felt like we went back in time and walked down the cobblestone streets. I can see why Beauty and the Beast was inspired by these villages! I wish the audio tour talked more about the culture and how people lived and their day to day lives rather than so much on how different wars impacted the villages. Our guide was a wonderful driver! LOVED the convertible van, it had charging stations and WiFi! The windows were plenty big so we could take lots of pictures.

Very nice experience, beautiful sunny day, the region is magnificent. Visit of several villages (about ten) some of which on foot. The time given to visitors is correct. The vehicle is very pleasant, convertible. The driver is a good driver and multilingual. I highly recommend. I will definitely repeat the experience.

A perfectly timed day to really get to see many of the most charming villages on the Alsatian Wine Route.

Fantastic driver with a vehicle purpose built for travelling through the Alsace region.
