Half day tour, including a walking tour in Colmar.


The day will be spent on the magnificent and panoramic wine road of Alsace. But before reaching that splendid area, you will enjoy a historical walking tour in Colmar, discovering the city's colourful past and present.
You will stroll through the most magnificent historic section of the city & will enjoy the commentaries and local input, passing through the most tiny and forgotten sections of the town.
After that discovery tour, you'll be driven through the panoramic wine road to the centuries-old village of Eguisheim, classified one of the most beautiful villages of France.
You will have plenty of time to appreciate it at your own pace, and to explore it on your own.

Itinerary

You will explore the "Little Venice area", the "collégiale section" up to "the heads house"; you will have the unique opportunity to discover the sometimes complex aspects of the Alsatian history in relation with our German neighbor, in a personalized, professional and friendly manner.
(please be aware that in the eventuality where your hotel would be a little bit further away from the historic section of the town, I will come to pick you up by minivan, in order to start the walking tour).

Later, we will reach the tiny hamlet of Eguisheim. After a drive through the vineyard itself, you will have plenty of free time to explore this spectacular medieval village & to get some incomparable memories!

Please do not hesitate to contact me for any tailor made program. I will stay at your entire disposal for any half day tour you would like me to organize from Colmar or surrounding!
