Loved this! Exceeded my expectations of the historical Alsace villages. It felt like we went back in time and walked down the cobblestone streets. I can see why Beauty and the Beast was inspired by these villages! I wish the audio tour talked more about the culture and how people lived and their day to day lives rather than so much on how different wars impacted the villages. Our guide was a wonderful driver! LOVED the convertible van, it had charging stations and WiFi! The windows were plenty big so we could take lots of pictures.

Great tour. Recommend reservations when stopping for lunch. There was NO ROOM when we stopped and after and hour of wondering from place to place we ate at an outdoor food stand on the ground. Great tour overall, but highly recommend that guides either plan lunch or that guests are informed to plan ahead.

Definitely recommend, beautiful tour of the Alsace region with sufficient time in each area. I would also recommend adding a fun activity to this tour.
