Very nice excursion, in the rain and the wind which cooled us down, especially for the visit to Colmar... The recorded comments are clear and precise, without being too long... The general atmosphere in this small coach of 20 people is quite friendly and friendly... The driver-guide puts a touch of humor and warmth in his instructions for respecting meeting times..., which effectively leads to the friendly support of travelers ... The periods left free for visits to the places are sufficient and we did not have the impression of being pressed for time, particularly for the midday meal in Riquewihr... In short: It was a very good day that could have been perfect in the Sun!!

During the month of December, taking this tour gives you the chance to visit other Christmas markets, the one in Colmar is beautiful. But only do it if you have at least 3 nights in Strasbourg as you will be spending the whole day outside the city.

We went for our tour at Christmas, so there were a lot of markets and sights to see, which was great. The tour guide was very charming and made everyone feel at ease on the tour.

Exactly what we wanted. We were able to see so much more with our own driver.

A very complete excursion. The guide is very good.
