From Colmar: Full-Day Alsace Wine Tasting Tour
- Small group
- Duration: 8 hours
It was meant to be substitute for the planned vacation that we had to cancel due to Covid. Alright then - just for the feeling to have done SOMETHING - we thought. What an unexpected trip that was! What a wonderful time we had! What incredible sights we saw! It turned out to be the highlight of our entire year! The friendliness of the people flashed us completely. Everyone was so kind and helpful and not at all enervated about out humble attempts to produce some chunks of school French. We only met smiling faces. We had an enjoyable ride on the little train and also the very well organised and super informative boat trip. We climbed the overwhelming Münster right to the platform and had a marvellous view from there. But the most impressive experience was the Horologe, the Astronomic Clock. We couldn't believe our ears or eyes and still are flabberghasted about this unique masterpiece. We had excellent food AND serice at the Pont de St.Martin. A perfect stay in a wonderful town. Thanks
The tour is wonderful and you get to drive through and visit multiple small villages along the Alsace wine route. The audio guide is fantastic and our driver was very kind and professional. My only complaint is that I wish I had been notified a little more in advance that my chosen date was canceled due to being the only one to book a tour. I had to do some fast rearrangements of my trip and lost money on my original plans because of it (this is more advice for future bookings as I also understand that pandemic conditions aren't great for anybody and I feel lucky I was able to take a vacation in the first place). Other than that, I highly recommend this tour to anyone who enjoys full-day sight-seeing tours in an astonishingly beautiful location. The price is worth it and the pace is perfect.
Worth every penny! This tour was laid back, informative and you got to see the best parts of Alsace without the work of driving and parking. Super nice being lead to all the local gems such as restaurants, specialty shops and historical points of interest. Perfect tour to see all the hot spots of Alsace and still having the evening to explore on your own. Our tour guide even recommended dinner where we stayed in Colmar and made our reservation for us. The wine tasting at the end of the day was perfect with lots of regional wine to choose from. Being a party of 2 girls traveling alone, we felt safe and chaperoned by a knowledgeable local the whole time. Wish I could give 6 stars but 5 will do. Don’t hesitate, book this tour for a perfect weekend getaway.
A fun experience! Our tour guide was patient, kind, and knowledgeable. We learned a ton of information about each village we went to. If you are looking to visit as many villages as possible, especially in a short amount of time, this is the trip for you. We saw four beautiful villages & had plenty of time to stop, take pictures, and shop. Such a great experience and highly recommend taking this tour!
Tour guide was great. Took his time to help us be prepared to ride segway and made us comfortable-no rushing at all. We signed up for a 2 hour tour and I think we did over 3! Really a great way to see Strasbourg. Highly recommend.
