Know More about this tour

Pick up in Colmar and depart for the beautiful village of Eguisheim. Surrounded by vineyards, the narrow and concentric streets highlight the architectural merits of its half-timbered houses, lovingly decorated with flowers. After a walk in the village participate in a wine tasting session to discover the world renowned Alsace wines in a typical winery.

Your tour then continues on to the beautiful town of Riquewihr. Surrounded by ramparts, the village has been very fortunate to survive war and destruction. Its tiny streets, fortified walls and old houses have preserved their 16th century splendor virtually intact, making for remarkable architectural harmony. Free time for personal discovery and lunch.

After lunch you will follow the breathtaking Alsace Wine Route. Located between the Rhine valley and the Vosges mountain range, the 60 year old route winds across the slopes for more than 106 miles (170km). The itinerary leads across rows of undulating, vine covered hills, and through quaint villages with narrow streets and charming flower decked houses clustered around the local church steeple.

Finally, reach Haut Koenigsbourg castle. Here, follow your guide for a tour of this mighty fortress that overlooks the valley. Built in 12th century, the Castle occupied a strategic position controlling the wine and wheat routes to the North and the salt route that came from the East.

After the visit return to Colmar.

    Bellissima esperienza con una guida, Miryam, molto gentile, pratica e affabile e sempre disponibile. Il percorso mostra le bellezze rappresentative dell'Alsazia. Ottima scelta il castello da far visitare, molto rappresentativo del mondo franco-germanico. Consigliatissimo...

    We enjoyed our trip “Gems of Alsace Shared Full Day Trip From Colmar” so much! Our guide Myriam is so knowledgable towards the region & wine as well! Lots of good information was given during the trip. And we especially love this tour as this one includes different elements in just a single day - beautiful Alsace villages (we have free time to explore Riquewihr), wine tasting & castle visit! Highly recommend!

    Our guide Ameliee was very knowledgeable about the tour facts and made them interesting. The towns we visited were all lovely, the wine tour very good and the castle on top of the hill amazing. Would highly recommend this tour.

    Tour guide’s outstanding knowledge of history and familiarity with back roads. Comfortable vehicle. Sufficient time to experience each place.

    This tour was truly one of the highlights of our trip! We were able to see villages that would have been difficult for us to visit, since we weren’t driving. But more than that, Jean-Yves was so informative, entertaining and just plain fun - he gave us a day that we couldn’t possibly have had on our own. His knowledge of the villages and general area, as well
    as history and, of course wine (!), made our day with him a delight. We would highly recommend this tour and guide.

    一人で英語ツアーに参加。参加者はアメリカ 人夫婦×2、ドイツ人3名。 エギスハイム、カイゼルベルグ、リクヴィル 、ユナヴィルを廻る、コルマール9時発、13時 戻りの半日ツアー。 エギスハイムは自由時間無し、ガイドさんに 付いて観光。 家のスタイルの説明は分かりやすい。私が英 語は少ししか分からないと言ったから、いつ もよりゆっくり話してくれてるかも。(ドイ 人も英語堪能) 他の村は、それぞれ30~50分の自由時間あり 待合せ場所が、観光案内所か村役場の前で、 分かりやすかった。 自由時間の長さは、すこし見学して買い物す るには丁度よかった。 ツアー申し込み前のメールのやりとりも迅速 。 他のフランスの都市でも、このエージェント のグループツアーに参加してみたい。 余談として、このツアーを13時に終えた後、 ルマール駅発14時のバスで、リヴォービレ 行き、お目当てのeau de vieを蔵元で購入。 バスでも、2日あれば、村4~5つ廻れます 、私としては、説明を聞けて、車で連れて てもらえて、ツアー参加は大正解でした。 ただし、最小催行2名なので、注意が必要で す。
