Let Us Customise Your Alsace Experience
Taste Some of the Most Interesting Wines of Alsace
Depart for a half-day morning or afternoon tour along the Alsace wine route to discover some of the most fascinating wines of France. Renowned for its aromatic white wines, the Alsace wine region is ideally suited with its dry and sunny climate, complex geology, favorable soils and excellent exposure. During this half-day tour from Strasbourg, you will taste wine in 2 different wineries. As you experience a tasting session, learn about the 7 different types of Alsace wines.
Or Visit Some of the Most Authentic Alsace Villages
This small group half-day trip to authentic Alsace villages departs from Strasbourg and heads towards the Northern Alsace Wine Route. As you drive along this scenic Route, you will reach some of the most beautiful villages located in the area. One of your first stops will certainly be the village of Barr. This superb Alsace village, unknown from many tourists, is one of our preferred destinations. Since it is located off the beaten tracks, the limited number of visitors make it a real treat if you want to get the real feel of Alsace. Its well preserved historical city center is dotted with a great number of traditional half timbered houses located along the twisted cobbled streets. Other great options that your guide can include are the villages of Mittlebergheim – with its Rue Principale, Gothic Churches and geranium covered wells or Andlau and its famous abbey that dates back to the 9th century.
Or Why Not Combine The Two Options
This tour enables you to mix and match according to your preferences. Your guide will be happy to adapt the tour to your wishes and suggest the best possible options depending on your choices. We highly recommend that you send us a note suggesting what your preferences would be, but a small chat with your guide before the departure of the tour will be the best way for you to really indicate what you would like to day during this private half day tour of Alsace from Strasbourg.

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!
