Program & Itinerary
Come and discover one of the most fascinating regions of France through one of our exclusive regional tours.
Alsace, unlike the other French Regions, abounds in both French and German Influences. The majority of the population speaks French with a decided German accent, the cuisine is an able blend of French and German cooking, many of the towns of the region have German names and the village architecture delights in a pronounced Germanic influence.
A visit to this region is always a delightful experience. This small group tour has been designed to make you discover the history, culture, food and wines of Alsace through carefully chosen visits that combine the most significant sights to off the beaten path locations that only a very small group tour will permit.

Beautiful Towns, villages and Amazing Landscapes - What a Combination!
Pick up in Strasbourg and begin your full day tour with the beautiful town of Colmar. Discover the charm of the old town, its prestigious monuments, the Pfister house, the Koïfhus, Saint Martin collegiate church, and the picturesque neighborhoods of small Venice or of the tanners.
Then depart for the most 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 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 16C splendor virtually intact, making for remarkable architectural harmony. Free time for personal discovery and lunch.
Following Lunch, Enjoy the Spectacular 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 170 kms. 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. On this part of your day trip from Strasbourg, your guide will stop in several areas for great photo opportunities.
End the day with an English Tour of an Amazing Castle
Finally, reach the mighty Haut Koenigsbourg castle. Here, follow your guide for a tour of this mighty fortress that overlooks the valley. Built in the 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. The castle is probably the most imposing of all the Alsace region. After the visit, return to Strasbourg.
6.00pm Return to Strasbourg.
This Evening will be Devoted to a Traditional Dinner in a Local Restaurant
Tonight, enjoy a fabulous regional dinner in one of the most traditional restaurants of Strasbourg – known as a Winstub: The Winstub, literally “wine lounge”, recreates the Alsatian way of life.
Originally, it was a room open to the public where wine growers could sell off the surplus of their production. Nowadays, the Winstub is a typical Alsatian restaurant, where the wine is served in carafe accompanied by traditional dishes such as Choucroute (or Sauerkraut), Baeckaoffa - a hotpot of potatoes garnished with a selection of meats marinated in white wine, cooked in a terrine dish – and many more.
Don’t be surprised to eat shoulder to shoulder on wooden tables, often covered with tablecloths with red checks where the usual customers often “try to solve the world’s problems”.

In the heart of the city, imagine yourself wandering around and getting lost in the corridors and passageways of a 16th century building.

This is the most picturesque part of Strasbourg. Fishermen, millers and tanners once lived and worked in this neighbourhood built on the water. The magnificent half-timbered houses date from the 16th and 17th centuries. Their sloping roofs open onto attics where skins used to be dried.
The RÉGENT PETITE FRANCE Hotel & Spa is ideally situated in one of the city’s best known and most picturesque quarters, La Petite France. Take your time strolling through the narrow cobbled streets, admiring the pretty half-timbered buildings, the canals and the little bridges. Just a short walk from the hotel, you will find the Pont Tournan (swing bridge), which alternates letting the boats through and the pedestrians cross.Show moreShow lessShow 4 medias
