We had an incredible day in the Champagne Region. Our guide was on time to pick us up, and was extremely friendly and informative. We were able to visit the incredibly beautiful church in Reims and then visit one of the many small Champagne Houses in the morning. The owner was very friendly, and the champagne was excellent. Then we were treated to a very nice lunch in a quaint restaurant, complete with a couple bottles of wine. Then we spent the afternoon touring the area of the larger Champagne Houses, followed by a walking tour of Moet and Chandon, including their vast caves. A tasting completed the tour. We never felt rushed, and had ample opportunity for photos and even a visit with a member of the local chamber who gave us additional information on the growing and harvesting of the champagne grapes. We would highly recommend this tour for any lover of champagne, or just as a fun excursion into the French countryside.
This tour was one of the best ones we did. Seeing the Moet house as well as the smaller champagne makers was incredible. The country side was beautiful. Our tour guide made sure he stopped to show us the amazing churches and history along the way. He even gave us some great tips on what to do in Paris while we were there. Amazing tour.
The tour guide was excellent. Not only did she speak 3 languages, she was also very knowledgeable about Champagne and the region itself. I think going to the family run champagne maker and a large corporation like Moet was also great to see the contrast between the two. Both places gave us a very thorough understanding of the production of champagne making. I would highly recommend this one day tour if you want to get out of the city and see a bit of the country side.
The trip was the highlight of our week in Paris. I would definitely recommend it!
Excellent guide. Nice to visit a local wine grower. Would have wished we visit another local champagne maker instead of spending too much time at Moet and Chandon.
I have only the most glowing things to say about this tour--money very well spent. Our guide, Fred, was great company, so knowledgeable, and made everyone feel very comfortable as he gave us an insider's glimpse of Champagne. The lunch was delicious. Excellent service all round--perfect door-to-door service, and you don't have to plan a single thing after you've booked this tour. You can just sit back and enjoy a perfect day in the wine country.
Easy drive from Paris, friendly, knowledgeable guide...great lunch...two enjoyable stops for champagne in the beautiful French countryside!!
We were lucky to be able to book a tour with Viator as we were trying to line up a wine or champagne tour the night before we went. Viator was very accommodating and stayed late at work to book us for the following morning which we greatly appreciated. Our tour guide, Fred, was fabulous and gave us a lot of interesting information on the ride to the vineyard. He even went out of his way to inquire about a building in Reims that he wasn't familar with and drove us by so we could see it. The tours of the 2 champagne wineries were very interesting, especially the one of the small local winery. The only non-positive comment we have is that the lunch was good, but not as great as we would have liked based on the cost of the trip. It was a wonderful way for my family to spend a day away from the hustle and bustle of Paris and we would highly recommend this trip to anyone.
A really enjoyable trip. Fred, our guide was extremely knowledgeable and very entertaining ! The best thing I did in Paris.
Absolutely wonderful! I would definitely book this trip again or at least one similar because it appears Viator knows what they are doing and at the right prices! We had a group of four and have been on group tours before so we were a little reluctant of a “tour”. But this was fantastic our small group of 4 grew to 8 and we all enjoyed getting to know each other. The driver was friendly, the Cathedral was mesmerizing, lunch was wonderful and all of the vineyards were incredible. We were so elated by the tour of Moët and Chandon and learned so much. Seeing 40,000 bottles of Champagne in the making in one of their “small” tunnels of one enormous cave on 17.4 miles of vineyards is just hard to wrap your head around. It is something any wine or Champagne lover has to see, touch and experience! …and I am almost embarrassed to say—I didn’t know Dom Pérignon is a vintage Champagne produced by the Champagne house of Moët and Chandon. ….But I do now and have a whole new appreciation for Champagne and how it is brought to life! Great adventure, wonderful people, remarkable Champagne and a very memorable day!
This was a wonderful trip. We had a small group which allowed for a more personal relationship with the guide and tourists. The guide was very knowledgeable and had an outstanding personality. The tour of two Champagne houses was enjoyable and interesting. The French cruisine lunch was delicious and the service was excellent.
