You will make a stop at the four wonders of the Alsace as they are called. The first one is Eguisheim, one of the most beautiful villages in France. Then drive further along the Alsatian wine route, immerse yourself in the world of vineyards and products which make the Ribeauvillé and Riquewihr region’s reputation. To test the region’s wine reputation, you will visit a typical wine cave and you can taste a big variety of wines such as Gewurztraminer, Riesling, Pinot noir and many more. You...

    This tour was AMAZING. It made seeing several small villages easy and so much fun. We were the only ones on the tour that day, so we were able to take our time and go at our own pace. Didier was knowledgeable and friendly. It was like seeing a good friend's hometown. If you want to explore the Alsace region, this is the only way to go!

  • Alsace Half-Day Wine Tour from Colmar

    2. Alsace Half-Day Wine Tour from Colmar

    Depart Colmar and travel by fully equipped minivan through the rolling hills covered in vines and medieval castle ruins. Marvel at the charming villages of cobblestone streets and half-timbered houses decorated with flower boxes and brightly painted ensigns. Get an introduction to wine making in the region at 2 carefully selected wineries, where you will sample some of the best-known grape varieties of the Alsace, such as Riesling, Gewürztraminer or Sylvaner. Hear about the steps involved to produce wine, from the vineyards to the vat room and ageing cellar. Leave with a better understanding of an industry that produces more than 150 million bottles of wine per year.

    Would be nice to see a bit of the vineyard route instead of just driving to the vine tasting.

    I really looked forward to going on this tour even though it rained all day. Simon was a wonderful tour guide. He was knowledgeable, funny, and a lot of fun to walk with around on this tour all day. His knowledge of the area was tremendous. Loved seeing the older area of Colmar, and the little villages of Eguisheim and Requewihr-very charming. My Favorite thing was walking on the old cobblestone pathways in Eguisheim and seeing the beautifully preserved old homes/buildings and hearing the wine growing/producing history of the area. We ended the day at the old Haut-Koenigsbourg Castle where we walked among the ancient well preserved walls and learned of it's history. Overall, even with rain, the day was very worth every penny we spent. And again, Simon did a terrific job teaching us of the history of the area.

Our tour guide Didier collected us from our apartment at 9am sharp. This was the start of a great day. We were driven to 4 small towns and the architecture and sights of the towns brought us back to the 12th century. We went at our own pace and we were in no rush. We had lots of photo opportunities too!! The wine tasting was an experience too. You get to taste 5 different wines. You are under no obligation to buy any but with the prices being low we couldn't resist!! We had lunch around 1pm and Didier brought us to a typical Alsace restaurant for lunch. The prices were good and the food was excellent ( they have frogs legs on the menu too). Overall we had a great day, lots of photos and memories. I would recommend 100%.

This tour was AMAZING. It made seeing several small villages easy and so much fun. We were the only ones on the tour that day, so we were able to take our time and go at our own pace. Didier was knowledgeable and friendly. It was like seeing a good friend's hometown. If you want to explore the Alsace region, this is the only way to go!

This was a very enjoyable and well organized tour. We had a lot of fun and its a great and very easy way to see all of the most beautiful Alsace villages :-)
