An all-round successful excursion with a very well designed and extensive sightseeing program that gives a good overview of the highlights of the region. Alsace impresses with the surprising beauty of the picturesque places. There is a lot of interesting information about this. At each stop there is enough time to see everything in peace. There is also a lot to discover along the way. A special thank you to the driver, who is also the tour guide, and who guided us through the day in a reliable, professional and friendly manner. I really loved this excursion!

Beautiful tour, with incredible landscapes like a story. The tour driver guide Martin, excellent driver, careful, kind and gentleman with older people helping them get off the bus, you learn the names of the people who do the tour, how nice one is so far from their homeland and they call you by his name., offers to take photos. Spend 1 wonderful day. Thanks, Martin. I recommend this tour and ask for Martin. Delighted I would do it again when I return to Strasbourg

We really enjoyed this trip. Alsace elms toe full of picture postcard beautiful villages and Haut Koenigsbourg was stunning. The castle tour was one of the best, if not the best we’ve ever been on, and incredibly well organised. The us was very modern and comfortable, the commentary was excellent, and the driver was great.
