Explore the pretty medieval towns of the Alsace region of France, as we take you on a tour of rolling countryside, quaint buildings and fine wines. We begin with a tour of Metz, before we arrive at our base in Klingenthal, where we will remain for four nights. From our base, we partake in many memorable excursions, experience a full day in Strasbourg, with its half-timbered buildings, visit the regional capital of Colmar, lined with canals and charming squares, and enjoy wine tasting in a nearby wine cellar. As the holiday comes to an end, we head to the delightful town of Obernai, set amongst the vineyards of the sloped Voges Mountains.

    Local departure by coach or Door-to-Door service, then to our overnight hotel in northern France.

    We head towards Metz, where we stop for free time and for you to purchase lunch. We continue into the Alsace region and to our hotel in Klingenthal, where we stay for four nights.
