A great, accidentally created private tour through the wine capital of Alsace with a knowledgeable, professional and historical guide who not only cares about his homeland, but also about neighboring Germany and the Franco-German friendship. We have done Segway tours in many cities but have never felt so comfortable and highly recommend this tour!

Thank you very much for the tour!!! The tour was just what you would want for first taste of Alsace wink wink. Some information about grapes of the region and wine yards and traditions of the place. The guide was very warm, welcoming and very fun! It was one of the biggest highlights of our week in Strasbour.❤️

I feel like I learned a lot and tasted some delicious wine! I'm more of a red wine drinker but now I have a new appreciation for the white wines. The guide and the wineries were friendly and fun. The group dynamic is very positive with only 8 people. I highly recommend!

Good choice of small cities and towns to visit. All close by. At most 40 minutes by car from one to the other. Eguisheim is 5-10 minutes from Colmar.

Had a great winetasting with beautiful scenery, delicious wine and of course a very nice guide!
