A Recent Review of this tour

Benoit was an excellent guide. He was extremely knowledgeable about the area and had a genuine love for the places he took us too. It was like walking with a talking encyclopedia or better yet like a live google person. We enjoyed our tour down the Alsace wine road or is it up the Alsace wine road. We also went to Colmar and another medieval town. He point out details in the building and on the side walks. He recommended great restaurants for us to try out in Strasbourg. Great day
