Enjoy some free time in the area to visit your choice of the 5 different Christmas markets. Then you’ll take a drive along the famous Alsace Wine Route, passing through some of the region’s most beautiful villages. The afternoon program will depend on the date of your tour.

Not kidding, Florence is one of the best tour guides we ever had. She is so kind, and warm and full of stories. Oh, and always smiling. It was a pleasure to see Colmar and Ribeauville with her by our side. On a more technical side, everything was as expected: meeting point, transportation, group size, schedule etc. And the Christmas markets are definetely different from the ones in Strasbourg, much more ‘local’ and authentic. I would say this experience is a must-do. Would go again anytime.

Lots of information about the region and surroundings

Our tour was done in a van with driver/guide. The information and history were the big difference. Time very well spent. In addition to Colmar, visit the grape plantations and finally the Alsatian village.

Amazingly passionate guide who took good care of us and entertained us. Also enough freedom to explore each area. Only hesitant about the price but the experience itself was priceless.

very nice tour

We enjoyed the tour - especially the Christmas mart in Colmar and the wine tasting in Riquewihr. Our guide was very good and everything was on schedule.

A great way to spend the day in Alsace region and i plan to go back

Our guide was very good. The history, the scenery and the markets were all wonderful. I hope to return to this area some day.
