    We went with friends to celebrate a birthday and had a marvelous experience. Jean-Luc, our guide, was very knowledgeable and provided the right amount of time at each place to ensure that we saw everything we wanted to see. He also gave us time to wander on our own. We loved the little villages, as they were places we would have never found on our own. Great day all around!

    This tours was not conducted as advertised for a sequence of reasons.
    First the the van windows were fogged in the 2nd and 3rd rows so passengers could not see out for the first hour or more of the trip. The driver gave us a cloth to wipe the moisture away when we said we could not see...which we passed back and forth until we just gave up.we missed seeing the countryside.

    Second, the man driving the van was more a driver ( and a good one) than a tour guide. He was essentially silent while driving, except answering the few questions asked, and provided only minimal information about each stop.

    Colmar was advertised as one of the highlights of the trip and we were looking forward to it. However we were dropped off with a map because the driver had not planned in advance where to park. We really learned nothing about Colmar. We tried to guide ourselves with the map he gave us but found it of little use. We returned early to wait for the van because we feared we would be unable to find the meeting point and in any case were not getting much out of the visit without a guide.

    Both my husband and I have a strong interest in WWII and expected to have a guide able to provide context and information about the WWII experience in Colmar but were sorely disappointed.

    In summary our driver was very nice and did have command of some facts as any driver might. For example he accompanied us in a walk through Eguisheim and offered some interesting facts. However he was primarily a driver and not a tour guide in the conventional sense.

    We only had one day to visit the sites listed on this tour. This experience was very disappointing.

    He was very willing to show us every town we were very pleased. The place is very beautiful but if you dont take these kind of tours its difficult you could see everything in one day!

    Excellent trip through the countryside to the older towns of Equisheim and Colmar. Hike to the Koenigsbourg Castle. Laurent was a delightful driver and guide with 7 in tow. Easy travels via minivan and with lunch, etc. These small groups have been successful to send a day outside the city.

    My husband and I enjoyed this day tour very much. Laurent is an excellent guide....very knowledgeable and fun to be with. Oh, he is a very good driver, too! This tour made visiting the Alsace region very easy to do in one day with a lot of variety. Wear comfortable shoes for walking on cobble stones and climbing castle stairs. Laurent conducts the pace according to the group. On our next trip to Strasbourg, we would gladly welcome Laurent as our guide on another tour.

    Great day exploring a beautiful part of France. Alsace is a picturesque area. Oliver was an outstanding guide. His knowledge of the history of France and the region in particular was amazing and he did a superb job. I would recommend this tour to anyone.
