Authentic alsacian restaurant. Serves freshly made tarte flambee. Thw origional and the salmon are delicious. It's a nice restaurant. You can also buy the canal tickets from this place.

It is a must do activity. It is also a great way to see the city. It takes around 20-30 minutes to comeback to starting point.

The first half of the tour was up stream to a local neighbourhood and really not very interesting as it's a noise free zone your guide can't even speak to you. We did see a heron which was a bonus otherwise it's just a silent river trip taking in the local flora. The second half is more interesting as its... More

We had a wonderful boat trip with this company. Comparing it with the other outfit, this definitely seems to be the better choice. Awesome tour guides, great explanation in French and other languages if the group wanted it. I would highly recommend doing this excursion on the river when visiting Colmar.

The boat trip was lovely because Colmar and Little Venice are so charming. But you will not learn anything if you're a non-french speaker. The tour was completely french, still for 5 euros. It was pleasant.

You learn a little but not too much. Mostly it's just a pleasantly serene time on the water. Nice to have.

Ride overall is ok, but: first of all there is second company with much nicer stuff (even in tourist information they told us that theri is only this one working which was not true). Our boat man (guide) started to speak only in Franch (funny that he asked IN FRENCH if anybody speaks english), so after some time when I... More

I can't review the tour, because even though we bought tickets, we didn't take it. The customer service left a lot to be desired. The woman who booked our tour was brusque and unhelpful. She gave us one option, with a take-it-or-leave-it air, and when I asked if there was another boat company we might try, she said no. The... More
