My husband and I had a great experience on our Alsace day tour. If you are looking for a way to spend the day seeing and learning about multiple villages in the Alsace area from a local host in a small group setting, this is for you. Dider was our guide and he was amazing - he picked us up in an easy location, drove us safely to each village in a comfortable air conditioned van, showed us the unique and special aspects of each village provided information along the way. He constantly checked in to make sure we were having a good time and if there was anything more or less that we wanted for the day. We were able to explore and feel immersed in each village without being information overloaded with too much information. We did wish that a bit more wine tasting was included (we stopped at one winery at the end of the day) in the tour since we were in the Alsace area, so if you are looking for more of a winery tour this wouldn't be the fit for you. Otherwise, amazing day trip!

Aude was informative and interesting and we learnt a lot about the wines of the area. It was a great day with quality tastings. She went out of her way to please us.

Didier was amazing. His English was great. He was super engaging and really knew his history. The tour was thoroughly enjoyable. 5 stars.

Great tour guide, wonderful cellars and films and lovely wines! One of the best tours we have had in the last few years

A perfectly timed day to really get to see many of the most charming villages on the Alsatian Wine Route.
