Pick up at your hotel or accommodation in Colmar

Today we will come and pick you up at your hotel or accommodation in Colmar. 

Meet your English speaking local guide, expert in Alsace Wines 

In the morning, meet your English speaking guide who is an expert on Alsace and who will go over the itinerary and program with you. Then, board your spacious, comfortable, air conditioned minivan and begin to make your way to the Alsace wine producing region. 

Travel in a spacious Mercedes Minivan 

Your private day tour from Colmar will take place in one of our very spacious Mercedes Minivans. This vehicle can take up to 8 persons normally but on this occasion, the vehicle will only be for you. This allows you to choose the seat that you think best in terms of social distancing while still enjoying the information passed on by your guide.

All our vehicles are equipped with an on board P/A system that allows you to hear the commentary of your driver/guide no matter where you are seated. Also, there is free Wi-Fi access on all tour vehicles. Bottled water is also available in all our vehicles.

Visit Authentic Alsace villages

During this highly recommended small group private day trip from Colmar, charming towns and the most interesting landmarks of Alsace will be on your program. Depart from the small town of Colmar with your tour guide and discover the beautiful village of Turckheim. The village is a perfect starting point for a tour as it is a traditional Alsatian village with fewer tourists.

Throughout the centre of Turckheim there are plenty of traditional Alsace style houses to admire, overflowing with flowers, and a few specific buildings of interest: mostly dating from the 16th and 17th century. These include the town hall, the hospital and the guard house.

The most notable features are the fortifications and the three original gateways that surround the old town. While these defenses are common in some parts of France they are very unusual in the Alsace region. Enjoy a walking tour of the village with your guide.

Other villages that might be of interest include the villages of Eguisheim or Kaysersberg. If these were on your bucket list, then just ask your driver/guide as it since this is a personalized private tour, we are flexible on the program.

Including stunning Riquewihr

Your tour then continues onto the beautiful town of Riquewihr. Surrounded by ramparts, the village has been very fortunate to survive war and destruction. Its tiny cobblestoned streets, fortified walls and old houses have preserved their 16C splendor and have remained virtually intact, making for remarkable architectural harmony. Enjoy free time for personal discovery and lunch (not included).

Reach the Alsace Wine Route

Located between the Rhine valley and the Vosges mountain range, the 60 year old wine 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. As you stop in one of these villages, experience a wine tasting session during which you will be introduced to the local wines.

Visit the mighty castle of Haut Koenigsbourg

Finally, reach the medieval castle of Haut Koenigsbourg. Here, follow your guide for a tour of this mighty fortress that overlooks the valley. The Haut Koenigsbourg castle was 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. Entrance fee to the castle not included in the price.

Château du Haut Koenigsbourg visit includes a large number of steps and uneven terrain, you must be in good physical condition to visit this monument. On this full day tour, benefit from the undivided attention of your guide on this private tour. Please note that we also organise this tour as a day trip from Strasbourg, including the visit of Colmar and its famous landmarks such as the Pfister House.

After the visit, return to Colmar.
