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 guide, Danielle[ I think], was delightful - widely knowledgeable: history of area, architecture, and any other topic raised including philosophy. She also took care to ensure everyone engaged. It was a compact trip to an Alsace village plus two more with the vignerons. Most interesting was the organic winery where the eclectic winemaker had such a broad interest in nature, loved his knowledge of subject and for the insects and animals as well as the grapes intrinsic to his craft. Fascinating trip.
Excellent wine tour. Laurent, our driver, was very nice and went out of the way to show us some picturesque Aslatian villages during the tour. We visited two wineries and they were both exceptional. It was a very special experience to taste wine alongside actual winemakers. I would highly recommend this wine tour!
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.
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.
