What You Can Expect
As you tour this incredible labyrinth of chalk cellars with your guide, learn about the magical process of turning standard white wine into something fizzy! Hear about humidity levels and temperature control, and see for yourself how the bubbles get into each bottle. At the end of your 1-hour walking tour around the cellars, sample a glass of Moet Champagne and discuss its complex creation with the fellow Champagne lovers in your group.
From Epernay, hop back on board your air-conditioned minivan and travel through Reims Mountain National Park, home to Grand Cru vineyards, before reaching Hautvillers with your guide. Known as ‘the birthplace of Champagne,’ this charming village is best-known for its most famous ex-resident, Dom Pérignon, the innovative Benedictine monk who dedicated most of his life to producing and perfecting Champagne.
Reims is the last stop of your day, and in this city rich with tradition and culture, visit the must-see House of Mumm Champagne cellars. As a sommelier guide shows you around, discover the main stages involved in the production of Mumm’s famous Champagne and learn how Champagne has different levels of sweetness -- termed sec or demi-sec. End your tour on a high note, with a glass of highly regarded GH Mumm Cordon Rouge Champagne, before returning to Paris.

Epernay was beautiful. This is where Dom Perigon invented champagne. Then travel thru vineyards to nearby towns to sample the good stuff. Moet and Chandon were closed for remodeling but the other winery we went to was great. You take an elevator down into the tunnels of fermenting wine. Then you board a small train and a guide gives you the history of Mercier Winery. See the super large barrel of champagne that traveled by oxen to the worlds fair.
Had a fantastic day with 2 other couples. Our guide was terrific! A must do tour...especially if you love Champagne.
Moet is closed due to renovation, only informed after booking the tour. Other than that, love the small tour group and our driver cum guide is very professional.
Wonderful. Our tour guide was very knowledgable and his driving was excellent. We loves this tour.
learnt to appreciate the quality of French champagne. Excellent guide.
Great tour and scenic ride! My only complaint was that we were supposed to see Moet and Chandon, but saw Mercier instead. But Mercier was still fascinating champagne house!
great tour and the guide was great.
it was good that the group was small, it let everyone to get to know each other.
Would highly recommened
Wonderful trip, we made new friends and now appreciate why champagne is so expensive.
We were lucky enough to get a private vehicle for this tour, so it meant that we had Rupert our guide all to ourselves. The champagne houses are amazing and Riems is beautiful. We would never have learnt as much or seen as much if we had done this tour ourselves. Cannot recommend enough.
Tour guide Philip was fantastic I do believe though that visiting Moet and Mumm was pretty much the same experience But if you truly love your bubbles then do it!
