A wine and vineyards lover's paradise found! Oozing with charm, history, several of the Most Beautiful Villages of France, food and wine delights!! Unfortunately, our European rental car had GPS but did not indicate which highway choice we were making. Consequently, our northern portion of the route from Obernai to Ribeauville was on a more major highway and not the... More

From the beginning with our tour guide Paulena, the tour was the best part of my Strasbourg experience so far. Paulena was attentive and knowledgeable. The scenery was incredible, the wines and winemakers were excellent and the towns beautiful. I highly recommend this tour to anyone that visits the area. I also enjoyed an Alsace lunch. 5 stars!!

I booked with Benoit through email communication to alascope@gmail.com. I thought he owned the business and that it was just a one person tour company. We paid 200 euro for four of us to get up early and come from Paris to Strasbourg, specifically to take a tour by Benoit for 5.5 hours. He was very communicative at this point... More

My favorite was Kayserberg, very good views from the tower. Also walking between Ribeauville and Hinawihr was a highlight. Colmar is good for a couple of hours.

We booked a tour with this company...paid and had voucher in hand, but they never came to pick us up!! When we called them, they claimed they didn't know who we were and they didn't even have a tour running that day!! Fortunately, we were rescued by another company, Orphorus, which we highly recommend (I wrote a separate review for... More

I started my journey by car from Strasbourg and ended in Thann. This route is a little over 170 Kms and there are dozens of lovely villages enroute. Do not go by your GPS since it will take you through the shortest motorway - the A35. Get a local map and go from village to village and follow the brown... More

We spent approximately 2 days touring on the route with side trips over another 2 to 3 days. You could spend two weeks if you have the time...could be a gastro-tour. Beautiful wine countryside with numerous photo opportunities. You need to pick the places you would like to visit, jumping on and off A35 otherwise it would become monotonous scenes... More

Alsace is one of the most beautiful places in France, and the Route des Vins while overshadowed by the disproportionate attention paid to regions like Provence, is an absolute must-do. The villages along the route are picture postcard material, but similar and to that extent unlike Provence or Dordogne where each village is a discovery in itself. We spent a... More

Within a relatively small area, there are more beautiful villages and vineyards than you will ever have time to visit. Wines are excellent, and prices very reasonable. Don't expect any culinary miracles, though, especially if you are a vegetarian!

The route des vins is absolutely beautiful and far exceeded our imaginations in terms of the beauty of the villages and the countryside. But driving was a challenge. Even with a GPS we got off track a few times. Not up to French standards in terms of good signage.
