Choose History, Wine, or Both in Alsace!
This half day private tour from Colmar has been designed to satisfy your personal taste. If there are two things that cannot be missed in Alsace: its fairy tale villages and the wines that are produced here!
Colmar is ideally located to discover either or both. As you are picked up by your own personal English speaking driver/guide, take 5 minutes to let him/her know what you would really like to discover. Your guided tours can either head towards some of the small towns or most beautiful villages located along the wine route in the surrounding area such as Eguisheim, Kaysersberg, Rouffach or so many more.
Or why not decide for an introduction to the wines and wine tasting of the alsace region and be driven to meet some of the local wine makers that will explain the type of wines they produce, the soil the vines grow on, and of course have you taste these great wines to learn about color, aromas and style. Finally, another highly recommended option is to combine both villages and wine so as to make the most out of your time on this half day experience.

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!
