Great tour. Our guide picked us up at our hotel promptly at the appointed time and we spent a full day visiting the three villages (French, German and Swiss). Didier, our guide, was wonderful. Very knowledgeable. Easy to talk to. Good guy. Thoroughly enjoyed our time with him, especially a delicious lunch of German food and beer in Freiburg. I would recommend this trip and give high marks to Didier.

Our guide Didier found the sweet spot between feeding us information and giving us time for photo ops. Unlike other guides, he made the effort to accompany us to the various sights instead of dumping us somewhere and asking us to meet in X minutes. He constantly checked if we understood his accent (we had no issues with it), and he came across as earnest and friendly.

Too cool A rewarding adventure Didier a guide too nice To do without hesitation it was MAGIC

Was a nice tour with a fair amount of building sightseeing and commentary!
