TAKE IN THE HISTORY

of picture-perfect Alsace

Characterized by the Vosges Mountains to the west and the Rhine River and its border with Germany to the east, the Alsace region is undoubtedly one of the most charming and uniquely distinct regions of France. A region famed for wine, culture, landscape and history offers something for every traveler. Visitors can experience the Germanic influence in the architecture and distinct gastronomy, but the region itself is undoubtedly Alsatian.

With rolling hills, castles, perfectly preserved historic villages, world-famous vineyards and UNESCO world heritage sites to name a few, this famous French destination offers an abundance of options. As a fully licensed tour operator, Ophorus help you explore this magical region with our small group tours from Strasbourg or Colmar. Led by expert English speaking tour guides all our sightseeing excursions include the most famous destinations & activities such as the alsace wine route, the Haut Koenigsbourg castle, commented wine tasting sessions as well as unique biking tours. If you´re a lover of wine, why not follow the Alsatian wine route to some of the region’s most famed vineyards nestled among rolling hills and mountains?

Or if you’re searching for history and culture, why not explore the preserved medieval capital, Strasbourg, with us? Or combine both experiences in one tour! Whatever option you choose, our wine tours delve deep into the region, offering you an insight into the history, architecture, wine and culture. We offer both exclusive private tours as well as fun & informative shared tours on a half day or full day basis. We usually suggest a full day tour as this will give you the perfect opportunity to experience the best this region has to offer. Discover the preserved beauty and cultural wealth of Alsace with one of our Ophorus tours.
