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.
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.
Our guide, Adrian, was knowledgeable and engaging. We learned a lot about the region and it’s history. In addition, he was funny and engaging. Most importantly, the wines and crémants were delicious and the wineries were unique in their own special ways. I highly recommend this tour.
I am not much for using headphones but otherwise I liked the tour. We spent just enough time at the markets.
Make sure to not get overwhelmed with excitement for the markets and forget where the bus parked!
