We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of Basel, Switzerland and Colmar, France. Our tour guide, Paul, was extremely knowledgeable, friendly and accommodating. The churches in both cities were amazing, and the unique architecture in each was colorful and impressive. We capped off our tour with a tasty French lunch at a cafe in Colmar and sampled authentic French Macaroons for dessert! Delicious!!

I would love to go sometime. I studied this when I went to Purdue University for my Hospitality Tourism Management Degree with my tourism emphasis. It looked like a wonderful place to go! I would love traveling by train so you can see the landscape of the countryside! Spectacular! For those interested in this trip please enjoy it! Thank you Trip Advisor
