Continue to the fortified town of Riquewihr to stroll the tiny streets lined with old houses that have preserved their 16th-century splendor. Get some free time to explore on your own and find a nice spot for lunch. Then, travel along the breathtaking Alsace wine route between the Rhine Valley and Vosges Mountains.

Get amazing views of the undulating, vine-covered hills and quaint villages with narrow streets and flower-decked houses. Arrive at the medieval Château du Haut-Kœnigsbourg overlooking the valley.

great , beautiful and informative thanks to lovely tour guide JEAN

loved it. We visited more villages than was planned . We were courious to visit the village when Anthony Boudain passed and Jean took us there. In addition we saw many more villages from the van without stopping but the effort still count. All together we stopped at 4 villages. Our guide was really wonderful, thoughtfull and full of information :)))
