What people are saying about Strasbourg

Loved this! Exceeded my expectations of the historical Alsace villages. It felt like we went back in time and walked down the cobblestone streets. I can see why Beauty and the Beast was inspired by these villages! I wish the audio tour talked more about the culture and how people lived and their day to day lives rather than so much on how different wars impacted the villages. Our guide was a wonderful driver! LOVED the convertible van, it had charging stations and WiFi! The windows were plenty big so we could take lots of pictures.

This was an excellent tour- our guide, Robin, was very knowledgeable and friendly. We especially loved his relationship with two of the vintners and they were welcoming and answered all of our questions. I would recommend this company, especially since we also booked a half-day tour with a different company that turned out to be a scam!!!!

Robin was an amazing guide! So enthusiastic and informative. We loved his energy as we explored the Alsace Wine route. First two winery’s were very personable, we got to sit with the owners of the winery as they talked about their wines and we tried many! A wonderful day.

We tried all of the local foods and there was plenty of food. Bonus was we got to hit all the main areas of Strasbourg since it’s a walking tour.

That was really nice atmosphere and interesting guide. Thank you so much!
