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 :)

Pieter shared his Christmas Eve with us, and we had a great day visiting many villages in the Alsace area. He knew people everywhere we went, and was able to answer questions about every topic. Thanks so much!

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!

I expected a little more history about the city. We appreciated the venue chosen for lunch, although we didn't realize we would be joined for lunch with Pieter & his wife.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: On the boat tour there is a lot of historical information. Then during the walking tour we talk about the buildings, areas and their history. On all our tours I or we join our clents for lunch.

My spouse and I have travelled over the past 15 years to Europe with other tour guide services and although their services were very satisfactory, Pieter's professionalism, knowledge and language skills were outstanding in comparison. Also, he was very patient with unforeseen circumstances that arose with researching various genealogy details; as well as, locating World War I & II battle field sites, cemeteries and monuments that were unique to my interests.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was very special to meet you both and our tour was a great adventure for us also. Thank you !!!

Pieter was a most excellent guide. He arrived promptly and we spent the next 8 hours with him visiting 4 Alsatian wine caves. Pieter is knowledgeable in the Alsace region, and is particularly well versed in the wines. The wine caves that he choose were interesting, had different style wines and were located in differing soil/weather conditions, so that we experienced the full variety of Alsatian wines. All in all a great tour!

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.

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

We originally planned to tour with Pieter for two days however after day one we decided we could do just as well on our own. The wineries we visited day one were fine (especially Hugel), however in addition to the tasting rooms the tour consisted merely of driving and walking through a number of villages (repetitively). There appeared to be little advance planning that went into the tour, including the restaurant for lunch. The choice was a poor one.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: This 2-day tour was planned/prepared extensively weeks before the tour.Though everything seemed alright during the 1st day something must have gone wrong.I will add that going from Strasbourg to wineries in Haut Rhin the driving takes at least 1 hour to the tour desc.For lunch there is not always a lot of choice in the "better" restaurants category on some days of the week simply because they are closed in the beginning of the week.I will be more clear on this in the future.

TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: We do confirm that extensive planning went into this tour on behalf of the guide. As we retain all communication between guide and traveler in our system, the correspondence shows that Pieter was helpful and replied promptly to all customer requests. The suggestions from the customer have been noted to help Pieter improve his tour for future travelers.

We were extremely happy with the Geneology tour Pieter and his wife Terry took us on in Alsace. They researched our family prior to the tour and as a result we were able to locate our cousins from several generations removed. All in all it was a wonderful day.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was very interesting and nice to meet your family. Thank you!

We had a fabulous day with Pieter and his lovely wife, Terry. They helped us wrangle my 96-year-old father and his wheel chair in and out of their mini-van while we wandered the back roads north of Strasbourg visiting the areas my ancestors came from. We found a great little place for lunch in an off-the-beaten track Alsatian village, and sampled terrific wines at a vinter that Pieter knew. They could not have been more friendly and accommodating. Highly recommended.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a pleasure! How cool to meet and travel with "grandpa". Thanks for your kind words:) Cheers from Terry & Pieter

A wonderful opportunity to learn about wine in the Alsace and to spend a day with people who live in the area. We also learned more about tasting good wine, with Pieter's low-key tutoring. No pressure to purchase, although we did buy one bottle and enjoyed it immensely on a special occasion later in the trip.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much!
