A lovely tour, we had a great guide and plenty of time to take in the views and wander throughout the villages. Apart from the 4 villages where we stopped to visit, we also passed through several others and our guide made sure to stop at panorama points and to offer info. There was also a wine tasting set-up at the end of the tour ( where you could also buy wine), and in the last village we visited there is a large regional wine store, so plenty of opportunities for buying Alsacian wines, The recorded audio offers a lot of information about the history of Alsace, and each and every village we passed through, so overall a well-organised, informative and picturesque day!

Our experience was very wonderful and awesome! We really appreciated the efforts of our tour guide Marcella. She is packed with all the information as every tourist wanted to know. She is so kind to answer questions not even related to the tour and asked us to share what we also knew about the history of the attractions we were visiting. Marcella is also a multilingual tour guide. Way to go Marcella!

Such a great experience. The tour guide taught us so much about the history of the romantic road, which leads us to rothenburg and it goes further. On the way to rothenburg, we made multiple stops along the romantic road at such beautiful villages. Then rothenburg was so so beautiful. Overall 10/10 would highly recommend this tour if you are looking for a day trip from Frankfurt.

The central station in Frankfurt is undergoing maintenance, so finding the meeting point is complicated. Fortunately, our guide, Keiko, met us at the bus stop and we were able to carry out the activity. Great guide, very entertaining. We visited Rothenburg and a few other small towns on the Romantic Road. It is worth strolling through this medieval walled city.

Fantastic driver with a vehicle purpose built for travelling through the Alsace region.
