We had a wonderful day with Pieter! He's tremendously knowledgeable and took us all over to see the wonderful wine villages, explore different Grand Crus, and even experience an adorable Christmas market/village! He was great at picking places and wines for us to try based what we liked at the earlier places. Absolutely wonderful day and experience touring Alsace.

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

What a fun day and great learning and tasting experience. I still can't believe how much we learned and how many wines we tasted on our day with Pieter. Alsace was a wine region where we had very little experience and I now feel like I can buy and order Alsatian wines with confidence. In addition to visiting wineries, we also stopped at a wonderful confiture shop and a chocolate shop for a tasting, and Pieter picked a terrific location for lunch. The day could not have been more perfect!

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

Wine tours with w/ Pieter are extraordinary. AM to PM, terrific was exceeded by even better. Most importantly, wines presented & tasted were well planned, chosen with purpose, its place explained thoroughly: compare and contrast. We went to special places, intimate get-togethers with individual wine makers, guys & gals in charge. Complementing the wine, wineries, & vineyards were chateaux & castles & we explored modern facilities under construction, with the people in charge. Great food. Incredible value!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks it was a pleasure and great meeting you! Pieter

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!

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.

Pieter was an excellent tour guide. He was knowledgeable, friendly, flexible, and he brought us to great wineries and a great restaurant. My girlfriend and I were in the Alsace for two days with our close friends. We all had a great time on the tour.

Pieter was really outstanding. His knowledge of the wines and area made for a great day. He was very accommodating and worked around some challenges the holiday presented. I know he could easily handle a large group but we enjoyed the personalization of it just being my wife and I.

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

Pieter was superb. He accommodated to our timing, our diverse desires as a family. The tour was comfortable and he is very knowledgable about the area, land, history and Alsacian wine. We had a delightful time and hope to return for other tours with tours by locals. We will assume all your guides are this good! Christine Green

We could not have been happier with our tour of the Alsace wine region with Pieter. He picked us up at our hotel in Strasbourg promptly and courteously. He was professional and extremely knowledgeable of local wines and the history of the area, making our day a very memorable one. We are back in the states now, dreaming of France and that very enjoyable day! Thank you, 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!
