Jack was a great guide and the food selections were delicious and were well contextualized within Alsace history and culture.

This was our third food tour during our 6 months in Europe and it was the worst. Our guide was pleasant and polite, and clearly very intelligent, but he seemed uncomfortable in his role as the group leader. He was not gregarious, or outgoing, so we had many uncomfortable silences; members of our group would try to engage him in conversation, asking him about the food we were eating, or details about Strasbourg, but he rarely said much more than basic facts. On our previous tours, the friendly guides were overflowing with information and stories, so we learned a great deal about the cities and the food. Quentin did not volunteer information about Strasbourg's food scene, or even much about the tradition of Alsatian foods. He did not explain why we went to various shops, or why the food itself was significant, and this was such a lost opportunity to celebrate Strasbourg and its food culture. The tour itself seemed disorganized: some of our stops did not appear to expect our group. At our first tasting, a kouglehopf shop, the owner had been on holiday so she did not know we were arriving. She and our guide had a very long discussion about this in front of the group, which was awkward since I speak some French and could understand what she was saying. He was certainly polite and professional with the owner, but it was uncomfortable to witness the fairly long exchange. The gingerbread shop also did not appear to expect our group: we were offered two small samples and a very short explanation. I think we would have received the same treatment had we walked in randomly. We did enjoy the cheese tasting because the owner was very passionate about her products, but we were only offered two samples: again, we probably could have replicated this by walking in off the street since a lot of the information was prompted by our questions. Our lunch at the restaurant was fine, and certainly ample, but it did not feel like an elevated version of Alsatian food. The desserts were good, but I think the policy of sharing two desserts with the group members is rather ungenerous. At this point in the tour, the other group had to leave to catch a train, so it was only our family eating. I'm curious if we would have been expected to share the same two desserts with 7 guests instead of 4. Again, the owner of the shop did not appear to expect our group and was not prepared for us. I'm uncomfortable about writing such a negative review; I certainly won't post on TripAdvisor, as my general practice is only to post positive reviews. You should know, however, that this tour needs some tweaking; it was not inexpensive, so we felt it was rather a waste of money and time. I know this is your newest tour, so I hope you will iron out the wrinkles: Strasbourg is a wonderful city with a fascinating history -- the tour should celebrate this, but our experience certainly did not. Sincerely, Julie Brennan

I did post a review on TripAdvisor but my overall feeling was that the tour was not a good value for the tastings we expected
