on 8th December we were only 3 ppl taking the tour and it was so great, almost like a private one. Our guide was really funny and talkative and he knew every single detail we asked him. He was also explaining things through out the way. Very nice guy.

I just loved the Strasbourg part of it. That only made it worthy! You can do it by train yourself instead of paying that much money.

El tour nos ha gustado mucho, Fede ha contado muchas cosas interesantes. Totally recommendable.

The guide Federico, very friendly, attentive and very well prepared

Yes it was such a lovely trip and worth all the money.
