Christmas Markets

Rated 5 out of 5
September 15, 2020

My husband and I, along with four friends (two couples) reserved several days with Jean-Paul and Pierre! We couldn’t have dreamed of a time more worthwhile. Not only did they take us to unique Christmas markets in the Alsace and Germany, but along the way exposed us to wonderful dining, stories, laughter and friendship! The experience was beyond our expectations. Jean-Paul is an excellent historian of the area, bringing to life stories of the past woven into present day practices. Pierre is an energetic, kind and sensitive driver and the two of them together makes for an absolutely unforgettable experience. Do not hesitate to reserve an excursion with them. We cannot wait to go back!
