ABOUT THE TOUR

Romance of the Alsace, Strasbourg and Wine Villages

Discover the magnificent historical region of Alsace, a mix of French and German culture. This is reflected in the culture of the region, which is a unique blend of the two. Strasbourg probably best typifies this blend and the surrounding countryside is home to a number of ‘Route des Vins’ which dot the area with carefully nurtured vineyards and picture-postcard villages. See half-timbered medieval buildings, canals and pretty squares as we explore this stunning corner of France.
