On the way, hear about the region’s famous Grandes Maison de Champagne, which include iconic brands such as Veuve Cliquot, Taittinger, Pommery, G.H. Mumm, Moët & Chandon, and Dom Pérignon. Then, arrive at the first stop of the day – the Veuve Cliquot Champagne Estate (visit and tasting fees included). Enjoy a guided tour of the grand estate, finishing with an expert-led tasting of Veuve Cliquot Champagne.

Continue into central Reims, France to take in the city sights, starting with a visit to the magnificent Notre-Dame de Reims Cathedral.

Break for lunch at a boutique winery or a Champagne boutique lounge, where you’ll be treated to a delicious lunch of regional cuisine, accompanied by a selection of Champagnes, including blanc de blancs, blancs de noir, and rosé.

After lunch, take a scenic drive though the vineyards of Montagne de Reims, passing through the Grand Cru villages of Verzy, Verzenay and Bouzy, as your guide explains the Champagne making process and the importance of ‘terroir’ in cultivating the grapes. Along the way, stop at a family-run Champagne estate for another tour and tasting (included), and discover a different side to the prestigious Champagne industry.

On return to Reims, France your tour ends back at the train station around 5pm.

We had a overall good tour, a bit rushed on time but was enjoyable! The operator even offered bottle shipping service which we agreed.

This tour was a highlight to our trip! My husband and I love champagne but until now, we had not realized the time and effort that goes into making the perfect glass of bubbly to be paired with various dishes. We always think of pairing wines with different courses but sampling different champagnes only add to the enjoyment of your culinary delights! Our guide was Amanda and she was wonderful! We had to get to the railroad ourselves but the Metro service in Paris is very timely and not at all difficult to navigate. We met Amanda at the station and once our fellow passengers joined us, we were off to a most enjoyable day. Amanda drove us around giving us the history of Reims, visited the beautiful Notre Dam of Reims, visited the historic Veuve du Clicquot where we learned the intricacies of making champagne and the history of this manufacturer. We then went on a beautiful ride through the countryside to local owned champagnerie to enjoy a three course lunch paired with a different champagnes to compliment every course. We ended our tour with a family owned business in a charming town and got an education on the co-ops that help eachother to produce the champagne of the region. Again, more sampling of delicious champagnes and then back to the train to return to Paris. The day was a thorough delight!

This was a wonderful tour. Our guides provided background on the area, the cathedral and the 3 Champagne tastings. My only wish is that they would have paid better attention to getting us back to the train on time as requested. Even after several reminders they barely got us back with only minutes to spare.

Thank you, Amanda, our amazing tour guide for a fun and informative day touring and tasting at champagne houses near Reims. We toured the caves at Veuve Cliquot , enjoyed lunch with champagne at a cooperative and finally tasted even more bubbly at a small and very picturesque house further out in the beautiful countryside. AManda gave us a good tour of the Reims cathedral and was a fountain of information about the history of Reims and the making of champagne. Go on this tour!

Amazing tour. It was the prefect balance of history, architecture, and champagne. We were able to see a big champagne house, a co-op, and a smaller house - which allowed us to compare and contrast. Our tour guides were super knowledgeable and friendly - and had great sense of humors. I would recommend this tour for anyone.

We book many tours via Viator. This is not one I would recommend. The trip to Veuve Cliquot was the best part of the trip. The tour was informative and it was interesting to learn the process of champagne production. The tasting was a nice ending if a bit underwhelming. The rest of the tour was a waste. Visiting the other two locations provided no new info and I dont feel a need to hear about the process of making champagne three timesliterally the same infospoiler alert: the grapes are pressed very gently. The lunch at the 2nd location was fine and the company of the other guests enjoyable. The 3rd location again was literally a walk into two room with equipment in them and a third explanation of the process of making champagne. The tastings in each were fine. It does feel a bit like being driven around to places to hopefully buy their product.

My biggest issue was that we chose an English speaking tour as we are from NYC the guide was great and informative but there was a couple in our group who did not speak English, so all the info that the Guide relayed to us was also delivered in French. The French guest also had long conversations with the guide in French so we were not able to gleen any info from those exchanges.

In hindsight, I would have just booked a trip directly to Veuve and then taken the rest of the time to explore the town of Riemes.

An excellent tour. We managed to switch into Laura's group about two hours into the day- I highly recommend requesting her as your tour guide, if possible. She was knowledgeable, fun, friendly, and full of fascinating facts about both champagne-making and Reims itself.

No question that you get enough champagne on the tour and it's a great progression from the caves of Veuve, to a medium-sized champagne producer for a surprisingly superb lunch, to a small, family-owned champagne producer to wrap up the day. Strongly recommended!
