It was meant to be substitute for the planned vacation that we had to cancel due to Covid. Alright then - just for the feeling to have done SOMETHING - we thought. What an unexpected trip that was! What a wonderful time we had! What incredible sights we saw! It turned out to be the highlight of our entire year! The friendliness of the people flashed us completely. Everyone was so kind and helpful and not at all enervated about out humble attempts to produce some chunks of school French. We only met smiling faces. We had an enjoyable ride on the little train and also the very well organised and super informative boat trip. We climbed the overwhelming Münster right to the platform and had a marvellous view from there. But the most impressive experience was the Horologe, the Astronomic Clock. We couldn't believe our ears or eyes and still are flabberghasted about this unique masterpiece. We had excellent food AND serice at the Pont de St.Martin. A perfect stay in a wonderful town. Thanks
A very pleasant 2 hours with Joel. The Cathedral was particularly interesting. Joel was able to identify small points in old buildings that we would have just walked past. Joel was a very pleasant and knowledgable guide. Joel advised that this was his first 'English' trip and although his English was often stretched it did not undermine our enjoyment of his guiding. It may be a greater difficulty in more demanding customers. On our part we wish him well and thank him for his time in guiding us around this truly beautiful City.
A wonderful selection of food items common to Strasbourg expertly described by our top notch tour guide who made everything taste better. All 6 food stops gave us fresh and delicious samples of their best. It was a super small world when we found out our guide was from the USA and went to the same high school I did.
The city pass is an excellent option, as it's great value for money. Even if you only do three activities, it works out cheaper than if you pay for them separately. There's a very good description of all the things you can do, so you can choose your favourites at your leisure. Highly recommend the cruise!
Very useful. We climbed the cathedral and saw the astronomical clock. We visited 2 museums in the Rohan Palace and the Alsatian museum. Cherry on the cake was the boat tour. Without it we could not have seen the Neustadt
