Great way to get to know a few local winemakers in smaller villages! We had 10+ samples at each stop, and many provided a few snacks as well. I enjoyed our smaller tour group, but wished the van was larger with taller windows as it was hard to see sites if you were in the middle or on the wrong side. Otherwise still an awesome day!

Excellent value for money if you like taking in all of the museums, boat trips, tours and seeing the city from the top of the cathedral. 3 days is a perfect amount of time to visit Strasbourg and to get the most out of your pass without cramming in too much too quickly.

It was a really nice trip. Our guide was great, even though she always had to switch between English and French. The wine tastings were very interesting, especially at A. Durrmann's.

An excellent, informative and well-planned tour. A highlight of our trip to Strasbourg!

Jean is a super experience guide who knows many interesting local tips to attract us.
