Highlight of our trip!
Pete S
, Nov 2019
This tour was truly one of the highlights of our trip! We were able to see villages that would have been difficult for us to visit, since we weren’t driving. But more than that, Jean-Yves was so informative, entertaining and just plain fun - he gave us a day that we couldn’t possibly have had on our own. His knowledge of the villages and general area, as well as history and, of course wine (!), made our day with him a delight. We would highly recommend this tour and guide.

If you are short on time and have not rented a car yourself this is a great tour so that you can see the Alsace sights. We only had two full days in Colmar and wanted to get to see more of the area so this was a great way for us to get to see more towns. All the towns were charming, picturesque and we enjoyed them all. When you stop in Kaysersberg I highly suggest going straight to the castle look out point, its about a 15 minute walk uphill and then you go up the only part of the castle remaining There are no lights - bring your phone to use as a flash light. You will get the most amazing views of the town and all the rolling hills and vineyards, this was our favorite view spot of the day. The wine tasting was lovely, I was happy to have it at the end of the day we packed a bottle tight in our luggage and it did not break on the flight home. We were lucky enough to see some storks as well! If you are looking for a tour that will give you a lot of information on the Alsace region this is not that tour. It is more of a shuttle service. Our guide was lovely and would stop any time we wanted to take a photo along the drive and would answer any questions we had. But information was not just provided regarding the area and we would have loved to know more about the history, the towns we were visiting, wine production and so forth. Great way to see everything, and everything is beautiful, just not a lot of information provided. Only giving this tour a 3 star just because of the lack of information that came with the trip for an expensive day. If you just want to see the area though or are short on time, you will be happy you took the tour. We are still really happy with everything we were able to see in such a short time.

Excellent tour with Alvaro. We were only two on the tour so it was very personalised. Alvaro's passion for wine and viticulture was evident without being pretentious . His commentary during the tour was more of a conversion. The wine tasting with Sylvie Spielmann, a lesson in respect for the vine

We did not end up on this trip as the guide was poorly but we were offered to tag along on a similar trip that was also wine tasting. Couldn't turn down the wine!! The guide was EXCELLENT!! The wine tasting tour was fabulous and the villages, beautiful. Only missed out the castle, but will be booking the trip that we missed out on the next time we come to the area. Alsace is extremely beautiful and a place you can get lost exploring. The photos that I posted on Facebook have had everyone wanting to visit.

Loved this day trip from Colmar. Picture postcard villages to explore and if you are a wine lover then the wine tasting offered as an optional extra is a must. The guide was just wonderful offered a lot of information on the Alsace and gave us ample time to explore each of the beautiful villages we visited. Would definitely recommend.

Our guide, Alvaro, is a pleasant and knowledgeable guide whose sequencing of events and pace are excellent. We went to the Haut Koenigsbourg castle early in the morning and everybody was still fresh and could manage walking and steps easily. The view made the effort worthwhile.We visited beautiful towns like Eguisheim and Riquewihr where we spent some free time. While driving through the vineyards, Alvaro explained the different vines and wines, and made some photo stops. It was an enjoyable day with many memorable highlights.

The given description was very accurate - we it happened to be just my husband and me that day were driven all around Alsace. Our tour guide Alvaro was fun, polite, and informative. We thought this was one of the best days and most memorable days of our entire trip! The sights and pictures were all beautiful.
