Great trip! Small group was a pleasure versus some of the larger bus tours, our guide, Daniel, was extremely knowledgeable and enjoyable to spend the day with (a must especially for a small group being together 12 hours!) and the 3 champagne makers they chose were outstanding. A real pleasure to start with the largest and best known (Moet) and then to experience the smaller and, by most standards, higher quality champagne makers in the region. On top of all of that, the lunch at one of the vineyards was truly an outstanding local experience. I would recommend to any and all.

Richard was our guide/driver. Picked us up exactly on time at the Westin in Paris. Comfortable Mercedes van was transportation to Champagne region. Lots of fun information along the way to Champagne. The tour of Moet and Chandon was fantastic--the caves and the tasting. Lunch was a 6 champagne tasting with a display of the locae fare. Then a tour of the vineyards and facilities of local winery Lelarge-Pugeot. Dominique spent hours with us showing her organic method of growing then allowed us a tasting. Magnifique!! --and the Lelarge-Pugeot Champagne's are are available in California. Great Tour! Richard made the experience personal, friendly and a real education about Champagne. I would highly recommend this tour.

This was a great introduction into the champagne world. I don 't think I was expecting it to be so educational but now that I'm home, I feel like I have a new look at what I'm buying and an appreciation for the final product. This is definitely not the cheapest trip but if you look at the big picture, we got transportation to and around the Champagne region, home cooked lunch by the winemaker's family, champagne at several stops and a hell of an education. If you have the money, I think this is the way to do it. Sure you could probably find Moet and organize that part of the tour. You wouldn't find the little places we stopped at or even know that they made champagne for that matter to know to stop at them.

We had the same tour guide that others mentioned named Daniel. He definitely knows his stuff and I doubt you'll stump him if you try. He's like the Ken Jennings of Champagne Jeopardy.

Final Conclusion: Don't expect to get hammered on this tour but do expect to get to taste good champagne (a fair amount of it). Also expect to get very educated and potentially increase your spending habits when you get home. Bring your credit card because there may be opportunities to buy stuff and send it home directly.

I would do it again.

One of my highlights to my trip in Paris. Educational, informative and fun experience. I love the fact that we experience the different types of champagne makers. Lunch was excellent! Our tour guide (Daniel) who is the champagne expert is very knowledgeable and made our trip very interesting. Thank you for the fantastic experience. I highly recommend this tour... in fact don't miss it if you are in Paris for a couple of days.

Seemed to be some slight changes to the itinerary from when we booked in January BUT this aside, an outstanding experience . Our tour guide Pierre was a font of knowledge on not only Champagne, but French culture and history which really added to the day.The highlight was the lunch in the sunny backyard garden of the Penet Champagne House- it was like having a backyard lunch at a friends home only much more memorable with plenty of tastings and delectable traditional French cuisine. Great hostess.
The trip gave you a real flavour of a spectacularly beautiful region and was a highlight of our stay in France.

Our guide, Daniel, was expert with his knowledge of the region and Champagne-making process. We toured 3 very different Champagne houses and truly learned what makes champagne so unique to each house. The "country-style" lunch with champagne pairings in the backyard of one of the smaller houses was picture perfect and delicious. My group had a blast and we'd recommend this tour to anyone. It was honestly a perfect break from the hectic pace of Paris and a "very French" experience.

We had 5 people in our party and ended up on a private tour to the Champagne Region. The entire day was an incredible experience, from learning about the history of the region dating back to the Roman Era, to 4th, 5th and 6th generation small Champagne makers. The history and process of making Champagne gave us all a new appreciation for bubbly and for the family legacies of so many small wine wine makers in the region. Our guide Daniel was fantastic and an expert in wine and Champagne and educated us on the craft that is Champagne making, along with the incredible history of the region. We had lunch in the garden with the family of Penet-Chardonnet after touring their cellar and vineyard, surrounded by roses and hosted with homemade, local French cuisine that was perfectly paired with the "house" Champagne. Truly an unforgettable experience! Our last stop was to Monmarthe, a 6th generation, family owned maker that hosted us with delicious Champagne after touring their cellar and taking us through the handmade process of their craft. We will never drink champagne the same way again!!

A wonderful small group trip. Our driver was wonderful and very knowledgeable and the Champagne Houses we visited were all great. Our lunch was very memorable, sitting in the backyard of someone's house drinking champagne and eating good food. All good.
