We booked a tour with Suzele at Get Alsaced and asked for a traditional local lunch and some unknown wineries. She nailed it. Provided us with wine education, GREAT tastings and the most amazing lunch. We loved it. Some of the best white wines i've had. Suzele also coordinated shipping of wine back to the states. Happily recommend!

My wife and I had the most wonderful visit through Alsace, we stayed in Colmar, what a charming little town to walk and enjoy street cafes. I did the tour of Route des Vins with John Horney of JFJ Services, don't let the name scare you, he is a wonderful person, we truly enjoyed our time with him tour the... More

We did the 1/2 day tour with wine tasting. Chloe our driver picked us up at our hotel in Strasbourg. She was 15 min. late, thought we spoke German, our hotel made reservation & specified English. Her English was ok. Her driving was not! From the hotel to the castle she seemed ok. When we stopped for wine tasting she... More

We made the "old town" of Colmar our home base for 4 days while we explored Colmar and the surrounding villages. While I don't think you can go wrong with most any village along the Route des Vins, I definitely had my top favorites: Eguisheim, Kayserburg, Ricquer, Ribeauville and Obernai. The signage on Route des Vins wasn't always intuitive -... More

This was a very nice, well signed ride through the Alsace. We saw many wonderful wineries and several times the view was magnificent. The villages were also very nice. We stayed in Turckheim, started in Ribeauville with the route and ended in Than. We liked the first part more, don't know if that is due to the distance or if... More

If you've never driven along the Route des Vins in Alsace you're in for a real treat. A long and winding road as the Beatles said. However some very majestic and beautiful scenery. If you travel southward you'll pass many castles and ruins in the hills to your right. (Travel northward and they're on you're left.) stop in any if... More

Great opportunity to discover the area, making your way through the vineyards and the quaint towns. Runs about 170 kms. from around Strasbourg to Colmar. Would take a few days to discover and spend some time walking through the small towns. Take the opportunity to do some hiking in the hills, time permitting. Make stops at the various historic ruins... More

This is the oldest wine route in France, a tourist attraction since 1953, that takes you 170 km to 65 wine growing villages along the eastern foothills of the Vosges from Marlenheim to Thann, 21 km west of Strasbourg & Mulhouse, respectively. The vine-covered slopes covering 50.000 acres of vineyards provide picturesque scenes and quaint villages that produce 1 red... More

Visiting each of the quaint little towns of the Route des vins d'Alsace is like entering the scene of a fairy tale. Traveling across the vineyards and tasting different wines while talking to people and walking through these beautiful small towns is a wonderful experience, all this combined with great food and delicious desserts. You can decide whether you want... More

Worth taking in even a small stretch of this beautiful route. I had my two small children with me else would have happily stopped at a cave or two on the way.
