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.
We booked our reservation late the night before and they had a guide ready to go last minute. There was confusion about the location of where to meet because the online directions said to meet at 16 Rue d’Austerlitz. However when we got there, the employees told us to go to a location 20 minutes by walking away. Thankfully, we got there right on time, but upon arrival, the employees told us to go back to the other location. However, our guide arrived a little later and apologized for the confusion. The actual tour was very informative and the instructor was great about teaching how to ride the segways and about the history of Strasbourg. He gave interesting facts and pointed out places that aren’t typically highlighted. Highly recommend Yves and Quentin as they were great conversationalists.
Our stops were wonderful, but our guide (Oliver) really made the trip. He was pleasant, courteous, had very good english, and really knew his history. We very much enjoyed the lesson of the Alsace region, the history behind the towns and vineyards, and of course there was the castle... We will do another tour (probably wine-tasting) with your firm next time!
Definitely worth taking a day to do it! You get a thorough overview on the entire Alsace region, spend a a good amount of time in each town and get a history of the towns you drive through. The driver was friendly and really lovely! Don’t worry about any other tour. This will give you everything you need to learn about the region and see each town.
The driver/guide has good knowledge of the areas and attractions visited. His explanations were detail and informative.
