Meet your English Speaking Driver/Guide who is a local Expert on Alsace

Upon arrival at the meeting point, you will be welcomed by your English speaking guide who will be waiting with a sign bearing the name of the tour and with the Ophorus logo on it. Also, all our guides have a nominative badge so that it will be easy for you to recognize them.

Once you have met your guide, he/she will go over the program and itinerary of the day with you. Then, board your comfortable, air conditioned Mercedes minivan and begin to make your way to visit local Alsace villages.

All our vehicles are equipped with an on board P/A system which means that everyone will hear the guide's commentary during driving time, even if you are seated in the back of the van! Also, we have bottled water at your disposal and you can use our free wifi as you travel from one destination to another.

Visit the village of Kaysersberg

Begin your half day trip from Colmar in Kaysersberg with a guided walking tour and some free time for personal discovery. The Village of Kaysersberg was elected “Preferred Village of the French” in 2017 during a famous TV show in which 13 villages among the most beautiful of France competed to obtain the prestigious title. Kaysersberg, representing the Grand Est region, was the second village in Alsace to be granted this honor (after Eguisheim in 2013 – village that you can visit on our half day Wine Tour from Colmar). The highlights of the village include remarkable architecture, a unique Medieval charm, its location set amid the Alsace vineyard – in short one of the most picturesque villages of Alsace!

Then discover the Alsace Wine Route

Then follow the Alsace wine route and stop along the way for great photo opportunities. This famous Wine Route of France proudly winds through Alsace from North to South for more than 170 kms. Along the way, it is more than 1000 wine makers that create some of the most aromatic white wines of France. The Wine Route is also lined with Castles, Renaissance Buildings and picture perfect charming villages.

Travel to Riquewihr, an incredible Alsace gem

Arrive in Riquewihr for a guided walking tour of this magnificent small town. 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.

End the tour in Hunawihr

Finally, reach Hunawihr situated along the Alsace Wine Route, the Village is classified as one of the Most Beautiful Villages of France. This charming, typical Alsatian village boasts numerous architectural treasures and unusual sights: 16th century houses, a 15th/16th century fortified Church and cemetery that overlook the village and that could eventually serve as a refuge during attacks, a Renaissance Town Hall and so much more.
