Your day trip from Strasbourg begins when you meet your guide aboard the awaiting minivan in the town center. Settle into air-conditioned comfort for the scenic drive.

The first stop is the village of Colmar, where you’ll go on a walking tour with your guide. The town’s cobblestoned streets are lined with characteristic German-style half-timbered buildings, and you’ll even see some canals. See Colmar’s main sights, including Saint Martin’s Church and the 16th-century Pfister House, and wander historic neighborhoods like Little Venice.

Your next stop is the picturesque town of Eguisheim, known for its Medieval buildings decorated with flowers, and then it’s on to Riquewihr. The charming town sits inside Medieval walls, and is a warren of meandering alleys and chocolate-box houses. Enjoy some time to explore the pretty town at your leisure, including time to have lunch (own expense).

Continuing on your Alsace tour, the next point of interest is the 105-mile (170 km) Alsace Wine Route (Route des Vins d’Alsace). This scenic road curves gently through rolling hills and past acres of vineyards at the foot of the Vosges Mountains. Continue toward your final stop — Haut Koenigsbourg Castle (Château du Haut-Koenigsbourg).

The castle dates from the 12th century, and you’ll have a chance to explore the inside — including where people once lived inside it — and find out how this powerful fortress used to control the salt, wheat and wine routes from northern and eastern Europe. Admire the excellent views from the castle’s hilltop vantage point before climbing back into the minivan for the drive back to Strasbourg at the starting point of the tour.

Enjoyed the tour very much. Colmar, and the other villages were just delightful. Misleading info on tour description Sample some local Alsatian wines at a winery along the route was not included in the tour. I did not care much about the wine tasting but feel that it should not be in tour information as this is misleading.

We were not disappointed, the tour was well organized, we got a taste of all places mentioned. A very good tour to get an idea of all the places and enjoy a day out of Strasbourg. We did not read carefully all terms and found out during the tour that in 2018 the wine sampling is optional. That would have been better to leave out of the description when booking the tour.

We thoroughly enjoyed our Day Trip in Alsace. The tour guide was knowledgeable and personable. We gained a much better understanding of the region and had a great time with our small group.

This is an excellent way to see Alsace. Our guide, Ariane, was perfect. She was our guide throughout, including the castle, and provided history and context in a way that only a local person can. She timed our full day of activities in such a way that we did not feel rushed but were able to see so much. In particular, during the drive she took us through a number of small towns and pointed out interesting features we would otherwise have missed.

This was a truly wonderful trip. Our guide Ariane was very well educated about the complicated history of the region. As a native of Alsace, she was also able to share info from her first hand experience. The day was filled with beauty. The small villages were spectacular and the ride through rolling fields of vineyards was breathtaking. The castle visit was fascinating. We highly recommend this trip.

Olivier was a great guide and we thoroughly enjoyed our day. Small group gave us lots of interaction with the guide and ability to ask questions. Lunch time break also created the opportunity for wine tasting on our own. The castle was very historically interesting and the towns of the region were charming. Be sure you watch for the storks! What a treat.

Enjoyed this trip and it was nice to see all of these villages. We could have seen them as well with a car rental, but that is just our family's preference. Loved Colmar, wish we'd had more time there.

This was a very full itinerary, and our guide never for a moment waivered in her enthusiasm and passion. Florence was an outstanding guide for our first family trip to Alsace with boys aged 9 and 10--so very different from other regions of France. My wife and I would have gladly joined her for the next day's wine route tour, but for the aforementioned kids. Next time!

This was a wonderful tour that my daughter and I enjoyed. Our guide Florencia was terrific. She was a fantastic tour guide. The tour was in English, but our guide was able to also speak to the Spanish speakers on our tour. We loved the tour of the beautiful city of Colmar. Eguisheim and Riquewihr were towns out of a fairytale. The Koenigsburg Castle was very interesting. We did not have a car on our trip, so it was nice to be able to tour the surrounding towns by being driven there.
