A very interesting half day tour. Our guide informed us on the history and culture of the Alsace region as well as the particularities of the wineries! Two wine tastings (12 different wines!) led by the owners was a lovely experience.

This was a great excursion. The villages are absolutely worth seeing. Didier was very nice, and wanted to make sure that we were enjoying the sights. If you want to see the villages and not worry about driving, this is the way to go.

Florence was an excellent guide. We visited two artisanal wineries and learned a lot about the history and wine making of Alsace. We also visited the town of Obernai, charming and typical of the region. A great afternoon!

Our guide Didier was very friendly. Tour was at a leisurely pace. Very knowledgeable on Alsatian wine and cuisine. He spoke English well.

The stops we all excellent enhanced by our inimitable guide Dedier.
