Small-Group Wine-Tasting Trip to the Champagne Region from Paris

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

YOU MUST DO THIS TOUR. Honestly, the amount of champagne you drink is not an issue - there's heaps!!! It's the professional approach and learning experience you receive from the tour guide (in my case 'Guilame') that makes the difference. This guy was superb. It wasn't his mastors degree in 'champagne making/tasting' that increased my faith in the tour, it was his rapport with the small group that did it for me. He was only ever too happy to impart his knowledge and in a way that showed his aptness as an instructor. The lunch was perfect in terms of its size and its 'match' for the several champagnes that we 'felt obliged' to consume. If you've got 12 hours to kill, this is a perfect way to do it. Although, if you're like me, as soon as you hit the Champagne region, you'll wish you hadn't stayed in Paris for as long as you did!

My Review

Don't queue. Don't be miserly with your money. Just book this tour. The low numbers, the little 'nuggets' you get from the tour guide and the satisfaction you get when you walk passed the hundreds of people in the queue make this 'skip-the-line' tour more than worth it. With this particular one you also get a free ride up to the summit deck. Just be aware though, you will have to queue (about 30 minutes) for the summit. Excellent times.

Bateaux Parisiens Dinner Cruise on the Seine

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Wow. I did this cruise by myself and chose my own table (so I can really only speak for the premier service with private table). But looking around at the other guests who I assume were randomly put at tables with other diners, they were enjoying themselves immensly. The service I had was superb and of top grade quality. The meal was quite big so don't be concerned about having a meal that's all about presentation and little on quantity. The amount of wine/champagne that was on hand and all inclusive was impressive as was the quality. The views of Paris at night from the Seine are as you'd expect - excellent (notable because it rained as well). I'll do this cruise again but next time I'll take my girlfriend!

My Review

This is a really good way to start your explorations of the Louvre. You jump to the front of huge queues and get the 'tourist' stuff (e.g Mona Lisa, Venus De Milo etc) out of the way early so you can start looking some truly spectacular art. Having the tour guide (Christoph - who was excellent by the way) gives you some really good tips on how to negotiate the miles of art. You also get some very interest history lessons at the same time. If you're a complete art novice like me, then this tour is even more important to do.
