A Recent Review of this tour

My adult family of four took a wonderful customized "Best of the Alsace Wine Route" with Benoit in October. It exceeded our expectations. Benoit was professional, punctual and spoke perfect English. He even veganized our our gourmet meal and introduced us to the chef! It was exceptional. Our winery tour was so much fun! We enjoyed the owner, her father and of course, the wines. Even my older son, who really doesn't care for wine, loved them. Each charming city was a visual treat. Perfection!
