Great guide who gave interesting facts and anecdotes all along the drive. Only concern was that I understood we were going to be taken to a vineyard wine tasting, and we were just left to our own resources. Great tour overall.

Lovely tour of Colmar and Riquewihr, both postcard pretty towns with charming Christmas markets and picturesque buildings decorated with colorful Christmas motifs. We had plenty of time to have a hot chocolate and view the markets in Colmar then had a nice wine tasting session with Sebastian. Tasted four wines and loved them all Sebastian was very accommodating and eager to share his family's wine making history petting his dogs was a bonus! Riquewihr is a very pretty little village and we had some good soup and tarte flambé for lunch at one of the many restaurants lining the Main Street. Florence our guide, was very helpful, friendly and quite knowledgeable about the area. We enjoyed her commentaries. She also helped us with other travel concerns like booking a taxi and giving advice on other itineraries. All in all, great value for money especially because my husband and I were the only ones on the tour! Merci beaucoup Florence!
