Discover the Spectacular Villages and Views of the Alsace Region
Leave Colmar for the Alsace countryside and visit some of the most beautiful villages of the area with your English speaking tour guide.
Visit the 2017 Preferred Village of the French
Begin your day trip from Colmar in Kaysersberg with a guided walking tour and some free time for personal discovery. The Village of Kaysersberg was elected “Preferred Village of the French” in 2017 during a famous TV show in which 13 villages among the most beautiful of France competed to obtain the prestigious title. Kaysersberg, representing the Grand Est region, was the second village in Alsace to be granted this honor (after Eguisheim in 2013 – village that you can visit on our half day Wine Tour from Colmar in which you can also enjoy some wine tasting). The highlights of the village include remarkable architecture, a unique Medieval charm, its location set amid the Alsace vineyard – in short one of the most picturesque villages of Alsace!
Discover the unique Alsace Wine Route
Then follow the Alsace wine route and stop along the way for great photo opportunities. This famous Wine Route of France proudly winds through Alsace from North to South for more than 170kms. Along the way, it is more than 1000 wine makers that create some of the most aromatic white wines of France. The Wine Route is also lined with Castles, Renaissance Buildings and picture perfect charming villages.
Travel to Riquewihr, an incredible Alsace gem
Arrive in Riquewihr for a guided walking tour of this magnificent small town. Surrounded by ramparts, the village has been very fortunate to survive war and destruction. Its tiny streets, fortified walls and old houses have preserved their 16C splendor virtually intact, making for remarkable architectural harmony.
End the tour in Hunawihr
Finally, reach Hunawihr a village known for its numerous artisan shops and multiple cultural landmarks. Situated along the Alsace Wine Route, the Village is classified as one of the Most Beautiful Villages of France. This charming, typical Alsatian village boasts numerous architectural treasures and unusual sights: 16th century houses, a 15th/16th century fortified Church and cemetery that overlook the village and that could eventually serve as a refuge during attacks, a Renaissance Town Hall and so much more.

Great wine tasting trip – A tour through beautiful country with a knowledgeable tour leader to visit wineries. Each winery had a range of tastings and a good discourse on the growing of the grape and the wine produced.
Great experience and a lovely guide – With our very nice guide Daniele, a very well mixed group of members and some amazing wines, this trip was totally worth it.
Don’t miss this tour!! – We had a great time on the Alsace wine route tour. Flo was very friendly, warm and entertaining! We all fell in love with the picturesque little villages along the way and of course the wine was spectacular!
Great morning winetasting – We had a great time visiting two wineries in a morning, as well as driving through the Alsace countryside and having some time to explore the small towns. Great guide too.
Wonderful Trip! – Our guide Bridgette and the tour was wonderful and a perfect amount of time (and wine)! We loved seeing little towns and sampling some of Alsace’s finest wines! Memories of a lifetime!
