A fabulous full day visiting beautuful villages and towns decorated for Xmas. Suggested tip take an additional pair of shoes. To make the most of the trip there's lots of walking, it's would have been good to change foot wear! We liked the Riquewihr market best, it wasn't so crowded as Colmar, with a great range of stalls and shops. Eguisheim is a beautiful village with a lovely market.

We loved it. The villages are wonderful, although the weekends of December are saturated with people. Worth it and the driver very friendly, helped us in everything he could. For the price it could include a small guided tour in Colmar but despite this it is an essential excursion.

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.

It has been a success to discover the magic of Christmas markets. All very well organized to enjoy the necessary time in each of the visits. The guide Martin a perfect host who has made the visit very enjoyable.
