Why Travelers Choose This Tour

This tour visits a top Champagne house and two smaller family-run vineyards.
Learn how Champagne is made, and at the end of this full-day tour, you’ll be able to answer: What is a Blanc de Blancs, a Blanc de Noirs? How is Champagne rosé made? Do ‘Grands Crus’ and ‘Premiers Crus’ exist in Champagne? Is there a specific Champagne terroir?
After early morning hotel pickup in Paris, travel with your knowledgeable guide and a small group of passengers approx. 90 minutes east of the city. En route, bite into flaky croissants and pastries while hearing about the winemaking region of Champagne and its heritage.
Arrive at your first Champagne estate of the day, such as Moët & Chandon, Mumm, or Veuve Clicquot (depending on availability). Step inside cellars, walk through a maze of galleries and enjoy a tasting at the end of the guided tour. Come away knowing the secrets behind the méthode champenoise.
Back in your air-conditioned minivan, pass through the vineyards of the Montagne de Reims, Cote des Blancs, and Vallée de la Marne, between Reims, Ay and Epernay. As you admire the colorful landscapes, learn how to distinguish the three different Champagne grapes: chardonnay, pinot noir, and pinot meunier.
Settle in at a family-run Champagne estate, where you’ll meet the winemaker and enjoy a delicious meal of traditional food, paired with a Champagne tasting.
After lunch, visit the legendary Hautvillers, a charming French village. Stop at the abbey where Benedictine Monk Dom Perignon first made the sparkling wine more than three hundred years ago.
Then, receive a fascinating overview of Champagne’s vineyards during a Masterclass animated by your expert guide. Taste one special Cuvee and discover the specificities of this varietal.
Finally, you’ll be dropped off back in central Paris in the evening.

Our guide, Victoria picked our group of 8 up promptly at our hotel. She shared her knowledge of champagne and the surrounding area while we drove to the first of three stops. The first stop was corporate champagne house. We toured their underground caves by tram and learned about the product8on of champagne. Tastings were provided afterwards. The second stop was at a small family operation champagne house where the owner gave a tour of their production and then demonstrated gracious hospitality with a delicious lunch and tastings of 4 different champagnes. Our group was joined by another group of eight and we enjoyed great conversation over lunch. The final stop was another small producer with several tastings and tour of their facilities. I would highly recommend this expereince to learn more about champagne and see the beautiful countryside!

Victoria and Richard were absolutely fantastic. My husband and I, as well as the rest of our van, had a ball. It was a great mix and way to see the region with the big name Champagne house and seeing behind the scenes of small family champagne vineyard. Lunch was awesome with courses paired with different champagnes at a third champagne house. Can’t recommend enough!

Chloe was an amazing guide. She provided a lot of general history and information, but also a lot of personal experience. There were so many interesting champagnes and lunch was divine.

Our guide, Victor, was absolutely outstanding: well spoken, knowledgeable, thoughtful - first class! He made the day for us. The House of Moet and Chandon was perfect and their guide, Eleanor was also very knowledgeable and thoughtful!! The two smaller champagne houses and our lunch were truly memorable. Actually one of the highlights of our trip (esp. since we had been on Viking cruise that did not cruise thus a huge disappointment). However that being said, the champagne tour was still a highlight and I would certainly recommend this tour to anyone interested in champagne!!

This is probably the best tour I have ever been on. Richard was fantastic and so knowledgeable. Very well organized, great places to check out, a very nice lunch, and a visit to a cute shop to buy champagne for home.

Richard is a GREAT guide, we loved him! he was fantastic.Even though we enjoyed the tour we were expecting more time on the vineyards as opposed to it being the last 10 minute stop. Lunch was great, the drinks were plenty and delicious.

Our guide/driver, Richard, was very very knowledgable and polite. He is a sommelier who knows his wine/champagne. The day began with him picking us up at 730a another family was with us in the bus so a small group. We visited 3 wineries and had a nice lunch at one of them. We discussed places for dinner once back in Paris.....RIchard was nice enough to drop us off at one of his favorite places, very nice! Thank for a nice day in the Champagne countryside Richard!
