What people are saying about Colmar
This was a fantastic tour of the historic small towns of Alsace, which were truly magical. Walt Disney had tried to re-create this type of setting at the various amusement parks (Disneyland, Disney World), but this is the real thing. If you have the opportunity to visit the Alsace region, I would not miss this opportunity. Christopher was an excellent guide (a native to the region), and gave us a historical background on all of the sites. We had time to go out to lunch in the midieval town of Riquewihr, and Christopher gave us the perfect recommendation for a traditional Alsatian restaurant. We then had the opportunity to visit a vineyard and taste a variety of wines. We had a chance to meet the owner/winemaker, a rare opportunity. The vinyard has been owned by the same family for seven generations. The trip was a memorable experience, and I highly recommend this to any traveler visiting the Alsace region.
Worth every penny! This tour was laid back, informative and you got to see the best parts of Alsace without the work of driving and parking. Super nice being lead to all the local gems such as restaurants, specialty shops and historical points of interest. Perfect tour to see all the hot spots of Alsace and still having the evening to explore on your own. Our tour guide even recommended dinner where we stayed in Colmar and made our reservation for us. The wine tasting at the end of the day was perfect with lots of regional wine to choose from. Being a party of 2 girls traveling alone, we felt safe and chaperoned by a knowledgeable local the whole time. Wish I could give 6 stars but 5 will do. Don’t hesitate, book this tour for a perfect weekend getaway.
We were picked up promptly at our hotel by our guide and driver, Christopher. Unfortunately, the day was very foggy so it was impossible to see what we were surrounded by, the Black Forest and mountains. That didn't diminish the fun we had touring parts of France, Germany and Switzerland. The group consisted of my husband, me and a young single female traveler who was very delightful. The four of us (Chris included) had a great time!
A fun experience! Our tour guide was patient, kind, and knowledgeable. We learned a ton of information about each village we went to. If you are looking to visit as many villages as possible, especially in a short amount of time, this is the trip for you. We saw four beautiful villages & had plenty of time to stop, take pictures, and shop. Such a great experience and highly recommend taking this tour!
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.
