My wife and I are putting together a walking tour following Cassandra Overby's excellent book, "Explore Europe on Foot: Your Complete Guide to Planning a Cultural Hiking Adventure." (She has been featured in a recent TV show and several radio hours with Rick Steves.) We are particularly interested in the 4-day hike along the Alsace Wine Route in late May 2022.
I have two question to pose to the forum:
Not being hard-core hikers, we would like to take advantage of a luggage transfer service to move our bags from place to place along the route. However, my cursory web search did not produce any useful results. Are there any recommendations on how to arrange this or whom to contact?
The tour overnights are scheduled in Ribeauvillé, Damach-la-Ville, Obernai, and Molsheim. Any recommendations on lodging in any of these towns? (Some of these towns are listed in Rick Steves' France book, but there are no lodging recommendations.)
Of course, we'd love to hear from any of you about restaurants, wineries, and other great things to see or do?
