What You Can Expect

Private Strasbourg Walking Tour

Admire the stunning stonework of Strasbourg Cathedral

After meeting your expert guide outside your central Strasbourg hotel, begin your walking tour of this beautiful city. Listen to stories of Strasbourg’s history and its German heritage, and see that heritage firsthand at the first stop of the day — the Grande Ile.

Stroll through this UNESCO World Heritage Site’s pretty pedestrian-friendly lanes to see the Medieval Maison Kammerzell. It was once a private home, and is now a restaurant and hotel. See the statue of Johannes Gutenberg, inventor of the Gutenberg printing press, who was living in Strasbourg when he invented it. Pass by the ornately decorated 18th-century Palais Rohan, a palace where Marie Antoinette and Napoleon Bonaparte both stayed.

Continue walking through the Grande Ile to the Cathedral of Notre Dame, one of the most magnificent buildings in Strasbourg. Admire the 12th- and 14th-century stained glass and rose windows set into all that imposing stonework and topped with spires.

Visit the neighborhood of La Petite France, which used to be where workers in the milling, tanning and fishing trades lived. Many of the half-timbered houses they once called home remain, overlooking the little canals that run through the neighborhood. Find out where the district got its name — a 15th century hospital for people suffering from syphilis.

Walk along the cobblestoned streets and take advantage of the many photo opportunities — of canals, covered bridges and the Vauban Dam — as you pass the Old Butcher’s House, Saint Thomas Church and the Custom’s House.

Your tour concludes after roughly two hours, ending in the center of Strasbourg where you can continue exploring on your own.

An excellent walk with Daniele who engaged with us in a friendly, professional manner. Two hours and money well spent to enable us to gain an insight into the city of Strasbourg from a person with local knowledge.

This tour was fantastic, even though the weather wasn't that co-operative that day. The pace was excellent. The guide was knowledgeable and personable. It was really excellent. Strasbourg is a beautiful city and the astronomical clock was amazing.

Excellent way to get to know the big things and the little things about this great city especially if you are pressed for time. The tour guide is a true native Alsatian, very enthusiastic and very knowledgeable.

3 star rating: Worth doing June 2015

The guide was good. But the total cost was too high. I will book local in the future

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better April 2016

Sadly, we learned more on the audio recording used on the boat tour (€25) than with our personal and much more costly guide. We would not recommend this tour to anyone and hope that our Munich experience with you will be better. Otherwise we will not use your services again. - Steve D
