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!

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.

Great host who is very knowledgeable and nice, visited local wineries and talked to the actual wine makers. A lot of wine! Cheap to buy, lovely tour

It a very rewarding tour. It should be on all travellers list of things to do in Alsace region of France.

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