Amelie was super friendly and shared very informative facts about the area and the different wines in Alsace. The two wineries that we visited have different focuses when it comes to wines and soil quality, so you get a little insight into the diversity of Alsace's wine culture. We leave the tour with a very positive feeling. The group could not have been more different, but that also contributed to the good atmosphere! Clear recommendation

We had four very enjoyable and interesting hours with our guide Aude. She quickly cheered up the group of 8 people with humor and warmth, but also with her specialist knowledge - which was necessary given the weather that day. Wine tastings were very informative and completely no obligation to buy. They were really small quantities, but each had 7 or more grape varieties. Plus an hour of "free time" in picturesque, but very touristy Eguisheim. It was very worth it!

Our guide Aud was very knowledgable about the history of Alsace and the villages, wines and traditions, a great source of information. We really enjoyed our tour of Alsace, the castle, villages, look out point and wine tasting. An excellent day and experience we woukd not have had visiting the same places by ourselves, her knowledge made the trip unique and enjoyable. Thank you, we highly recommend this professional company and full day tour.
