Pieter was a great guide. He was well informed and considerate during our tour. He had great depth of knowledge and made the tour a special favorite. The tour was well constructed and provided very interesting insights about life in the wine country and the important historical sites in that section of France. I highly recommend him to anyone wanting to get a deeper respect for that region and enjoy the beautiful countryside around Strasbourg

The pacing of the tour led by Pieter was perfect for our group. We appreciated his knowledge of wine and we had fun doing some "tasting tests". He selected a wonderful restaurant for lunch.

Pieter is simply fantastic. Not only a great guide, but a great guy-- really went above and beyond to make our tour and wine tastings exactly what we wanted. Knew Alsace like the back of his hand, took us to each of the towns we wanted to see, and customized our trip to meet our needs. Even introduced us to the late harvest (vendage tardives, grains de noble) Alsatian wines that we had never had...a real treat. The best part? Was also our guide in Burgundy the next week. Simply the best!!!

Pieter was very knowledgeable about the area. He was an expert on the local wines. The choice for the lunch stop had wonderful food. He was patient and kind to us. He also let us have an extra stop to obtain necessary medical goods for one of my group. Thank you Pieter for a wonderful day!

Pieter did a great job showing us the Alsace region. I like guides that keep things moving (as opposed to standing in one spot and telling long stories). This gives you the opportunity to SEE more, instead of just standing around listening. Pieter was great about this. If we wanted to stop, he would let us, but I never found myself bored by a long-winded story. Thanks Pieter, we hope to visit you again and see more of this beautiful region!

I truly can't say enough good things about this tour and about Pieter! We went during the Christmas markets, so the towns were busy but still absolutely magical! And Pieter has local connections and knows the towns well, so he made sure we saw all of the main sites, despite the crowds. He's extremely knowledgeable about the region and very flexible. Because we booked a private tour, he gave us options throughout the day (additional town vs additional winery). I can't believe how much we saw in one day!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you! It was a pleasure :)

What really put my rating over the top is his knowledge of wine. I expected someone to show me the described sites but his tasting and general wine knowledge is exceptional. Very nice guy and easy to be around.

Pieter was very prompt and took us to a castle, 2 villages, and a wine tour. I would have liked more information along the way. The castle was self guided. We had to shorten our time in Colmar due to one member having great difficulty walking. Seeing this, I think we should have discussed and amended the tour, perhaps just focused on one village. Pieter was very knowledgeable about the wines. Also, it would have been nice to have water available.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I have used your remarks to add some information to the tour description. In all villages we visit we do a walking tour. I give information when we walk by the points of interest. It was and is marked that people/children must be able to walk for about 40 minutes at a time and I have classified the tour level as "moderate" and not as "light". So this tour should not be booked by people that have difficulties walking. If people want to skip parts of the tour then we can always make a customized tour plan.

Pieter was a super guide for our family. Very knowledgeable about area and the history all along our tour. He was very professional and helpful with lots of fun facts. His real passion was the Wine Tasting part of the tour. In the winery, it was so wonderful to have someone that know the owner, knew the winery, knew the process, and knew the wines......very well. Great overall experience!

Not what we expected. We continued to tell him we wanted to go wineries but he kept ignoring our requests until the very end when we insisted.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Customer(s) please check which kind of tour you are booking. Part of the Alsace “Wine & Villages tour” is one extensive wine tasting. Please be aware that for wine tastings at the better wineries, I must make appointments beforehand. We cannot just drop in on the day itself. This means I can maybe add one extra wine tasting and skip a visit to a village, but we cannot do 3 or 4 tastings. If you would want that please book a full day “Wine tour” and I am sure you will be completely satisfied.

We had a splendid day today touring storybook villages of Alsace with Pieter. Pieter was great, our tour was very well organized and planned from the beginning and to the end. We enjoyed every minute of it! The castle was magnificent, all 3 villages that we visited were absolutely breathtaking, wine tasting was also very good. We would definitely recommend this tour to anyone who plans to visit beautiful Alsace. It was our first visit to Alsace, and fell in love with it. Thank you, Pieter, very much !

Excellent tour for a traveler with a short time frame to visit the Alsace points of interest. I was the only person on the storybook and wine tasting tour (2April2017) and was charged a reasonable price for one on one service, over a period of 9 hours. The walking tour and car ride was scenic, comfortable and safe. Specified trip details as listed on this website were delivered 100% and in a professional/cordial and timely manner.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you! It was a pleasure :)

Our guide, Pieter, was very pleasant and knowledgeable. He arrived at our hotel punctually and was a very careful driver. As we were two pensioners, he was very patient and walked at "our" pace. He booked us a table for lunch at a delightful little restuarant which saved us from waiting in a queue.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you! It was a pleasure :)

This was a fantastic tour and Pieter was a terrific guide! This was my first time booking through this site and going on a private tour and it was a great experience. Pieter was so kind and patient with my 3 year old daughter and with all the pictures I took! This was so much better than a standard group tour and I fell in love with all the villages we went to! It is a trip I will always remember! Thank you Pieter and thank you for being so awesome with my daughter!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much. It was great to also see the reactions of your daughter on "witches" and "making a wish" for example. See you on Pinterest :) Cheers!

This tour covers a lot of area in a day. It is an incredible visual experience for the eyes if you have never visited these charming towns before. Pieter was able to add nice color to the tour - his passion and focus tends to be on the grapes and local wine making - and he make the drive between locations interesting. Pieter took us to a local restaurant where we enjoyed one of our best meals in the Alsace area. Incredible sight-seeing in one day.
