A FAIRY TALE LOCATION

and the best of Alsace wine

We organize both half day and full day tours from Strasbourg to the most famous landmarks of the Alsace region. Our scheduled and private wine tours of Alsace will take you along the Alsace wine route that is surrounded by vineyards. We also conduct fun & informative walking tours and Christmas market tour in winter.

Sheltered from oceanic influence by the Vosges Mountains, the Alsace wine region enjoys practically the lowest rainfall in France and is blessed with a sunny, hot and dry climate. Situated on the sub-Vosgian foothills, the vineyards of Alsace take advantage of their exposure to the sun: the slow, extended ripening of the grapes produce wines with very elegant, complex aromas.

Alsace wines are primarily white. It is the only AOC region in France to produce mostly varietal wines. Of the nine varieties permitted, six are responsible for the vast majority of vines planted in Alsace. These include the famous Riesling, the Pinot Noir, and the red grape of Burgundy. Less famous but no less capable are Pinot Gris, Gewurztraminer, Muscat and Pinot Blanc. Both dry and sweet white wines are produced. All our Alsace wine tours will take you to the most significant wine producing appellations of the Alsace wine.

If you are eager to get out of the city, our Expert tour guides will take you to the most famous landmarks of the area. All our Alsace Day Trips from Strasbourg take place in comfortable, recent and fully equipped A/C vehicles. One of the most popular destinations is southern Alsace and visiting Colmar is a must for all travelers. The small villages of Alsace are also a must do with their timbered houses, cobblestone streets and flower decked homes.

As professional guides we organise visits to Haut Koenigsbourg castle built in the 12th century castle and completely rebuilt in the 19th century. This visit will enchant families and independent travelers alike. Another great option is to cross over to Germany to visit great cities such as Baden Baden or Freiburg. The Black Forest is also one of the major landmarks of the area for those who are fond of stunning landscapes & breathtaking nature.
