What an excellent way to spend a day in France. Visiting wineries large and small was very interesting.
Lunch at one of the smaller winery was excellent and all champagne tasting was superb. A must-do !!
We had a wonderful tour with Pierre. We went to three vineyards: 2 small, 1 medium sized. The winemakers were all very friendly. We recommend this tour.
This was a great tour. It was great to have a ride out there and not worry about how to get from place to place. Daniel brought us to one larger vineyard and two smaller vineyards. It was so interesting to combine and contrast! Having an expert in the field and someone who could translate was really awesome. I would absolutely recommend this trip.
I have already responded to your request to rate our trip to Champagne.
It was amazing!!!! Our tour guide was excellent and informative and this tour exceeded our expectations.
This was such a wonderful experience! Our guide was incredible! Louie was very knowledgeable and very personable. He answered all our questions and exceeded our expectations. We went to a larger Champagne house first, which was really extraordinary. Next we headed into the countryside for lunch and more tastings. It was a quaint little village and we got the inside scoop on Dom Perignon the man himself, which was very enlightening. We ended our tour with a stop at a boutique family run champagne house. This was BY FAR my favorite. Monsieur Salmon, of Salmon Champagne was adorable. Even though he didn't speak a word of English, he was charming and I very much respected the work he and his family have been doing for generations. I highly recommend this tour, as it was the perfect end to our Paris vacation!
Wonderful day trip to the champagne region. Our guide Pierre was knowledgeable and entertaining. Lunch at the home of the vintner was so very charming.
Alain was a wonderful tour guide. The lunch experience was just lovely and there's nothing like drinking champagne in a vineyard on a beautiful spring day. I highly recommend this tour!
Our tour guide, Pierre, was an extremely knowledgeable sommelier who went above and beyond to explain the champagne making process in a way we could understand. The small group environment was great as everyone was able to interact and ask questions. The boutique champagne houses were incredible, and we even had the owner sit with us at his table as he poured us his champagne and offered different food pairings. The champagne region is a dream and it was the perfect day.
Richard was a wonderful and knowledgeable tour guide making this a 1st class trip.
My husband and I loved this trip! Our driver and guide, Pierre was very nice and very knowledgeable. I highly recommend him for your guide. We drove to Reims and had time to walk through the cathedral. It was undergoing renovation but still beautiful. The first stop was Taittinger. The Taittinger tour guides has you watch a short video on the history of the champagne house and then leads you through the cellars. It is very cold down in the cellars and I suggest bringing a jacket. After the tour you get 1 glass of champagne. Then onto the next stop which was a short drive to Verzy a very picturesque small town surrounded by grape vines. In Verzy we had lunch in the home of the champagne maker of Chardonett and Penet. Their house was so lovely and he and his wife very friendly and inviting. Lunch was delicious and the champagnes were excellent. The next stop was Herve Dubois. We chatted with the champagne maker and she poured 4-5 generous tastes, all of them were so good! We enjoyed the smaller family champagne houses over the larger Taittinger. They were more inviting and the champagnes were better. It was such a pleasant afternoon chatting with Pierre and the other people on the tour. I highly recommend this trip!
This was an excellent day tour with a great guide who was very knowledgeable on the area and the wine production itself. 3 Champagne houses were included. The first was a large well know producer and the tour of that establishment was somewhat under whelming, very corporate. However the visits to the 2 smaller family operations were special, both families so warm and inviting and really interesting to talk with. The lunch provided, in the family home of the second producer, was superb and the welcome given by the family could not have been warmer and more inviting.
Our guide Richard was extremely knowledge and imparted the information with humour. Lunch provided by Martine and the accompanying champagnes were exceptional. We then went to Montmarthe and met the charming Christophe who provided more great champagne.This tour was exceptional value for money.
A really lovely day in the countryside. The highlight was the lunch with accompanying champagne. Beautiful day.
Our favorite French tour by far! The champagne tours are amazing with very hospitable hosts. Our driver/guide was incredibly knowledgable about champagne and the area as well. This will definitely be a tour we do again!
The tour was amazing. Our sommelier/tour guide Alan was charming and knowledgeable. We loved experiencing the big commercial champagne house and both small, family-owned houses. The lunch at the second champagne house was the piece de resistance! Highly recommended!!!
Daniel's knowledge of the area and his familiarity with the Champagne houses made this an experience that we intend to return to soon. Very impressive presentation of the area. Everything was fabulous, except the weather (foggy), but that made us even more grateful that we had such a good driver/guide.
We have been on a lot of tours and this tour may be 1! We love the Champagne region had the best tour guide there! We visited a large well known champagne producer as well as a smaller, family run producer. Both were an educational experience as well as interesting and great hosts. As we were running early our guide took us by the cathedral in Reims and also had croissants for us. A nice treat! We had lunch at a charming restaurant in Epernay with several champagne tastings. While at lunch I looked up out the window and it was snowing. It could not have been a more perfect day!
This tour was excellent. Our guide was very knowledgeable and gave an outstanding commentary on the history of the champagne houses and wine growing in the area. The tour included a mix of large and small champagne house with tastings. A highlight of the tour was lunch and a champagne tasting at a smaller champagne house. This tour is highly recommended if you want to visit the champagne region but only a have a day and want to get a real feel of the region.
