This was a fantastic tour of the historic small towns of Alsace, which were truly magical. Walt Disney had tried to re-create this type of setting at the various amusement parks (Disneyland, Disney World), but this is the real thing. If you have the opportunity to visit the Alsace region, I would not miss this opportunity. Christopher was an excellent guide (a native to the region), and gave us a historical background on all of the sites. We had time to go out to lunch in the midieval town of Riquewihr, and Christopher gave us the perfect recommendation for a traditional Alsatian restaurant. We then had the opportunity to visit a vineyard and taste a variety of wines. We had a chance to meet the owner/winemaker, a rare opportunity. The vinyard has been owned by the same family for seven generations. The trip was a memorable experience, and I highly recommend this to any traveler visiting the Alsace region.
I really looked forward to going on this tour even though it rained all day. Simon was a wonderful tour guide. He was knowledgeable, funny, and a lot of fun to walk with around on this tour all day. His knowledge of the area was tremendous. Loved seeing the older area of Colmar, and the little villages of Eguisheim and Requewihr-very charming. My Favorite thing was walking on the old cobblestone pathways in Eguisheim and seeing the beautifully preserved old homes/buildings and hearing the wine growing/producing history of the area. We ended the day at the old Haut-Koenigsbourg Castle where we walked among the ancient well preserved walls and learned of it's history. Overall, even with rain, the day was very worth every penny we spent. And again, Simon did a terrific job teaching us of the history of the area.
Worth every penny! This tour was laid back, informative and you got to see the best parts of Alsace without the work of driving and parking. Super nice being lead to all the local gems such as restaurants, specialty shops and historical points of interest. Perfect tour to see all the hot spots of Alsace and still having the evening to explore on your own. Our tour guide even recommended dinner where we stayed in Colmar and made our reservation for us. The wine tasting at the end of the day was perfect with lots of regional wine to choose from. Being a party of 2 girls traveling alone, we felt safe and chaperoned by a knowledgeable local the whole time. Wish I could give 6 stars but 5 will do. Don’t hesitate, book this tour for a perfect weekend getaway.
A fun experience! Our tour guide was patient, kind, and knowledgeable. We learned a ton of information about each village we went to. If you are looking to visit as many villages as possible, especially in a short amount of time, this is the trip for you. We saw four beautiful villages & had plenty of time to stop, take pictures, and shop. Such a great experience and highly recommend taking this tour!
A fabulous full day visiting beautuful villages and towns decorated for Xmas. Suggested tip take an additional pair of shoes. To make the most of the trip there's lots of walking, it's would have been good to change foot wear! We liked the Riquewihr market best, it wasn't so crowded as Colmar, with a great range of stalls and shops. Eguisheim is a beautiful village with a lovely market.
