Has this been discussed before? The relatively new MSV tour is basically the second half of the GAS tour. Why not have another shorty that takes on the first half of GAS but maybe adds some Black Forest and/or Colmar?
Just saying - I am still working - I like the shorter tours because I don't use up all my vaca time on them, plus I get to add a day or two to the beginning or end for a separate mini adventure.
A Rhine, Black Forest, and dip into Switzerland tour would be great most times of the year, too. OK, maybe not Mürren for three days in December, but Basel, Bern?
Thoughts? Other variations? Or does MSV work because of the mix of outdoors possibilities plus museums, etc.? I'm interested to hear others' ideas.
