Fantastic tour with great visits and tasting for amazing champagne. Our guid was enormously friendly and had all the answers to all the questions we had. She took us safely to all destinations without any rush! 10 out of 10 would do again!

We were picked up at the Reims central train station in a very comfortable van and were brought to two family small house wineries. We’re were shown the time traditions of making Champagne by the families and felt their pride.

Simply a perfect afternoon tour.

Our guide was passionate, knowledgeable and kind to English speakers. He was born and raised in the region and more than anything had an enormous respect for the craft that is making champagne. We tipped him a bottle of Salmon Rosé and we were happy to do so. Would 100% recommend to anyone curious about champagne and the history behind the art.

Disappointing for the price
Halyna_K
, Jul 2022
Inaccurate description. Minivan was very small and tight for 8 people. We did not "go through" vineyards- we drove by. We only visited one of the champagne houses listed in description. The second one we visited had a dirty, neglected tasting room. We have been on other wine tours and for the price we paid, we expected a much more memorable experience than sitting in a tight minivan for almost 2 hours and standing for 1 full hour in a dark wine cellar listening to an advanced level lecture on champagne making. A walk down Ave du Champagne would have been nice rather than a quick drive by. Very disappointing and I cannot recommend.

This was a great introduction to the Champagne region with a passionate and knowledgeable guide, Martin. It was a unique experience because Martin had fostered close relationships with the champagne makers, allowing him to share details about family histories and production processes. He had insight into the champagne industry because he grew up in the region and champagne is part of his everyday life. This is a genuine and down to earth experience that introduces you to smaller producers making very delicious bubbly. It will appeal to beginners and experts.

Thomas was knowledgeable, passionate, proud of his hometown and region. DO NOT book a tour where you are picked up in Paris, instead take a train to Reims (so much faster, you’re not in a van all day then) , have Thomas meet you at the station & learn about Champagne with small houses.

A perfect afternoon experience

We loved our champagne tour experience - our guide Thomas was brilliant, so knowledgeable and able to answer the groups many questions. He was also able to recommend some great drinks and dinner spots in Reims. We enjoyed both tasting experiences and the variety of champagne we were able to try! The pick up / drop off and pre departure instructions are super clear too. Thank you!

Great winery and cellar visit, but disappointed with Champagne Avenue. Our guide did not explain what we were about to see so we’d driven halfway down it before we realised - he could have given us information. We had to go back ourselves the next day to see it properly

Reims and Champagne day

Our day out at Reims and Champagne was perfect. We booked the half day tour in the afternoon after visiting Reims which was the best part of the day. With a great small group of 8 and fantastic tour guide Susan, we got so much out of it and well articulated history and details on champagne and champagne making! Thanks so much Susan for a great time!

We had a wonderful time on this tour with our guide, Suzanne. Though we missed our train from Paris, the company responded to my email within minutes with directions on what we could do instead. Because of their speed and excellent service, we missed a very minimal amount and were able to enjoy the rest of the tour. Highly recommend!

This tour was really good and our guide Lisa was very knowledgeable and friendly. The first winery was great as the owner created us and talked about the history of the vineyard and the making of champagne over generations of his family (Fernando Lemaire) the second winery was a bit disappointing as the employee who worked there so not interact with us and just poured us champagne for the tasting (Salmon) overall the group size was perfect as 8 people and we had a great time!
