It was an amazing day! The tour offered much more villages to be seen by the coach or walked! We usually spent 1-2 hours in each village. The audio guide was easy to follow. It was mostly about when the villages were built and conquered. Also infos on the wines. Our guide Martin was polite and friendly. The coach was so much fun to be driven around! We also did a visit in the winery Katin and had some glasses of wine there. Totally worth to do! I would do it again! The easiest way to see all these picturesque villages!

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!

Excellent service very pleasant and professional on the part of Robin, who allowed us to discover during this day all the secrets of the places visited. Excellent guide who does honor to his profession, many thanks to him

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