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.
We booked our reservation late the night before and they had a guide ready to go last minute. There was confusion about the location of where to meet because the online directions said to meet at 16 Rue d’Austerlitz. However when we got there, the employees told us to go to a location 20 minutes by walking away. Thankfully, we got there right on time, but upon arrival, the employees told us to go back to the other location. However, our guide arrived a little later and apologized for the confusion. The actual tour was very informative and the instructor was great about teaching how to ride the segways and about the history of Strasbourg. He gave interesting facts and pointed out places that aren’t typically highlighted. Highly recommend Yves and Quentin as they were great conversationalists.
The tour is wonderful and you get to drive through and visit multiple small villages along the Alsace wine route. The audio guide is fantastic and our driver was very kind and professional. My only complaint is that I wish I had been notified a little more in advance that my chosen date was canceled due to being the only one to book a tour. I had to do some fast rearrangements of my trip and lost money on my original plans because of it (this is more advice for future bookings as I also understand that pandemic conditions aren't great for anybody and I feel lucky I was able to take a vacation in the first place). Other than that, I highly recommend this tour to anyone who enjoys full-day sight-seeing tours in an astonishingly beautiful location. The price is worth it and the pace is perfect.
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.
Honestly it is a well organized trip, with an amazing guide “Martin”, he is nice, attentive and giving clear instructions. The time given for each stop is sufficient. It is enjoyable tour in a comfortable couch and recommended way to visit the magical small villages of the Alsace.
