We have used ToursByLocals many times and have had many pleasant and knowledgeable guides. Benoit is at the top of the list. It is always helpful to be able to communicate with ease and Benoit is fluent in English. The depth of his understanding of the wine region and his ability to transfer that information to us made for a special day and experience. I would recommend him as a guide without reservation and we hope to see him on future trips to France. Mary and Jim McMahill

We were on a Viking Cruise but wanted to get a better look at some of the small town on the southern Alsace wine route so we contacted Tours by Locals and were directed toward Benoit. It was the perfect match. He picked us up in Breisach and took us to Eguishewhere we had a wine tasting at Emile Beyer. Afterwards we drove up to Ribeauville, had lunch in Bergheim and walked around Riquewihr. Benoit was extremely knowledgeable, very personable and a wonderful guide, flexible in scheduling. A fabulous day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Peter and Carol for your kind words. Is was very nice meeting you and I am very happy that you enjoyed your tour on the Wine Route. I wish you all the best! Benoit

Fantastic day trip to see Alsatian villages including village walks, lunch at a bistro owned by a Michelin chef, private wine tastings of incredible detail, including meeting winery owners, and tastings side-by-side Grand Cru selections from different vineyards. We live in California wine country and have never experienced wine tastings of such a high level.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much David! I am glad you enjoyed your tour on the Alsace Wine Route. All the best! Benoit
