My friend and I will be in Colmar for 1 day in July. We would like to spend about 4 hours there and then get a driver to take us to several of the surrounding village towns. Does anytone have any suggestions of houw to get a guide? Thanks.
The easiest way would be to contact the Colmar Tourist Office. You could do this online by typing Colmar into your Internet Browser Search window. The local tourist office almost always pops up in a search. The French tourist info bureaus are wonderful. They will book tours and accomodations for you so finding a driver would be a possibility. They would need to know ahead of time for that unless you wanted to go on a tour so do e-mail them to make arrangements.
BTW, you may find you can easily spend the entire day in Colmar. It's a very interesting small city. Type Colmar into the VT Search Window just above. This will bring you to the VT Travel Pages on Colmar. Check Tips on Things to Do for ideas. Their museum is excellent and the Petit Venice section is lots of fun. It's a bustling town and also has lots of wine tasting.
