based on 9 reviews

I applied because I could not move due to a strike of the French National Railway. In conclusion, I participated in this tour and it was the correct answer. I had three hours in Colmar and plenty of time elsewhere, so I was able to get around the city of Alsace efficiently.

Impressive excursion, the guide Martin very friendly and making you feel relaxed and unhurried, the towns that are visited and the pace at which it is done is perfect, I would do it again.

The trip has been fantastic, several towns are visited and stops are made in three main ones. Very relaxed you have time to visit it with ease. Martin the driver and guide is great.

Make sure to not get overwhelmed with excitement for the markets and forget where the bus parked!

To do and the day is full Prudent driver. To advice
