Had a wonderful day our guide was great kept us informed the lunch was very good food and the highlight was the cellar tours at the champagne houses! They just need to organize an international freight service!!
Excellent guide and a very cool tour through the champagne region. Visited Mumm's and Moet and Chandon with tastings in both places. This is a great day out of the city and into the beautiful countryside. You'll learn a lot about the champagne-making process too!
Our driver was so great, I can't say enough about him. The tours were great. Definitely worth going on.
WOW - where do we begin - our guide sorry we can't recall his name was so professional, knowledgeable, on schedule, and yes, a great driver!! We toured on July 27 and the trip was great and so was our guide. We highly recommend this tour - thanks Viator for another great adventure!!
Tour coordinator very good!
Add an extra 30 minutes on the front end of this tour to allow for late people and traffic issues!
Would do it again!
Excellent- tour guide was both well informed and personable. Great tour of the two vineyards and great stops for photos. Definitely recommend this activity.
Absolutely brilliant time. Completely worth devoting a full day to this tour. From the moment they pick you up, the various stops along the way, and up to the momement they drop you off back at your hotel, you will completely enjoy the experience and care they put into this tour. I am very picky and expect the best when I travel. I'm willing to pay for it and when I do, I demand maximum value. Who doesn't? To that end, I am very satisfied with this experience and recommend this to anyone. The views are amazing and the champagnes you taste will be stories you'll share with your friends forever. You will carry this experience with you for the rest of your life and certainly when you drink champagne. Cheers!
Due to bad weather we had significant traffic delays getting to the wineries however our guide was good humoured and knowledgeable. Once there the wineries visited were excellent with amazing cellars to explore - the Moet and Chandon visit was a standout - beautiful house and elegant tasting room !
Excellent! I was expecting 10 people on the tour but when I got to the car, there were only two others besides myself. It felt like a private tour. Our tour guide was kind, hilarious and filled with lots of information about the Champagne region, Paris, and France. They pick you up right at your hotel/apartment and drop you off too so no need to worry about public transportation. I'd recommend this tour to anyone :
The guide was very knowledgable and friendly. My friends and I had a great time.
Excellent tour!! We loved being in a smaller group just us and another couple and our tour guide was knowledgeable and very funny. We were disappointed at first that we didn't get to go to Moet and Chandon but we LOVED Mercier and their champagne. We bought a bottle to bring home. The visit to Mumm was fantastic. Seeing where Dom Perignon was buried was fascinating and we loved visiting the cathedral in Reims. We enjoyed walking around Reims and even stopped into a champagne shop and bought some Dom Perignon. I would recommend this tour and Viator. Very professional and organized and an amazing tour. Cheers!

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!
I knew it was going to be a good day when the sun came out in April. Very knowledgeable guide and small fun group to share the experience with. If you love champagne like me, you will enjoy learning more about how it is made.
Loved it! Beautiful, informative, and the champagne was delicious!
This tour was a delightful experience. The fact that the "tour bus" accomodated only six of us was a pleasant surprise as it made the trip intimate with a lot of interaction between the excellent driver and all of us. The driver was very knowledgeable about the history of France, the region and the champagne industry.
My traveling companion and I did feel fortunate that the other passengers were delightful folks with whom we had interesting conversations, but that is also facilitated by the small group atmosphere.
The entire process from booking to tour was handled efficiently by Viator. All confirmations and logistics information were emailed in a timely manner so we knew exactly what would happen when and whom to contact with any questions.
