From Strasbourg: Alsace Traditional Villages Day Trip
- Duration: 10 hours
- Optional audio guide
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.
Our stops were wonderful, but our guide (Oliver) really made the trip. He was pleasant, courteous, had very good english, and really knew his history. We very much enjoyed the lesson of the Alsace region, the history behind the towns and vineyards, and of course there was the castle... We will do another tour (probably wine-tasting) with your firm next time!
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.
Martin was a brilliant guide...helpful, fun, professional and a wonderful repository of information. He had our day delightful
The driver/guide has good knowledge of the areas and attractions visited. His explanations were detail and informative.
