  • It was an interesting and informative trip to lovely Champagne. I learned a lot from the lecturers - Daniel from G.H. Mumm Champagne and the lady sorry I didn't get her name from Mercier Champagne. I prefer the cellars of Mercier and their tour down the cellars was more organized. The Notre Dame de Reims is beautiful, though there was an ongoing work at the façade of the church. Our tour guide Manuela was very good, and details including history dates were accurate. Paris City Vision staff were polite and well-trained. I opted to take the Champagne tour with hotel pick-up and drop off and drivers both ways were punctual and engaging with guests. Thumbs up for this tour! Although it is pricy, I do recommend it for Champagne visit!

  • No guide on the bus, more of a sleepy chaperone, but a good overall experience. Big group, big bus, very commercial.

  • Tour speaks for itself despite the tour guide's being perceived as disinterested. Highly recommended!

  • It was a great way to experience the champagne area of France when time is limited. Very informative day, enjoyed the visit to Reims Cathedral, it is huge. Guide had a lot of knowledge about the Cathedral. Was a long day but glad we did it.

  • Tour guide was rude and uninformative. we saw her sleeping a few times.

  • With only two weeks out, I booked this tour as a last minute grab since my original booking with another tour got botched during the reservation process and this was one of the only tours available on the dates I needed. Although this tour didn't include the tasting I originally wanted, it had great reviews so I had high expectations and was excited for my first visit to the Champagne region. This tour included two Champagne tastings and entry/tour of the Reims cathedral.

    GH Mumm and Mercier were the Champagne houses on this tour and the tours were good but very commercialized for tourists. Dont get me wrong it was nice as a first time visitor to the Champagne region and very informative with Disney-like presentations and visuals and even a train ride through the caves. But if youre a champagne enthusiast or second time visitor, youd be better off arranging your own visits to the Champagne houses that youd like to visit with tastings.

    I guess I didn't read the fine print but on this tour we were restricted to one tasting usually their Brut and by tasting they mean one glass of champagne, not a flight of champagne as one would expect like Napa, Oregon or Washington wineries typically provide when you pay a tasting fee. If you wanted to taste their other labels such as the Rose, blanc noir, or Reserve you have to buy a separate ticket per glass. Im not sure if it was like this because of how these tours are arranged but certainly not like going wine tasting in Napa Valley where they will even waive your tasting fee if you purchase some wine.

    Our Paris City tour guide was an older woman, dont recall her name, but she was very monotone and spoke from her seat without even turning around to address us. We had several tours booked through Viator during our Europe trip London, Barcelona, Paris and this was by far the worst tour we have had. She was not very interactive with the tour and at times I had a hard time hearing her over the speaker but given that she was not very interactive with us, no one said or even asked any questions. She said very little during our trip out to Reims and Epernay, and she certainly could have said more about the region/history and vineyards during the bus ride. Paris was our last stop and after going on several Viator tours I was very disappointed with this tour. It was almost as if we paid just for a bus ride out to Reims for a tasting and back.

    Overall this tour was just OK and only because the Champagne tasting tours were given by the local Champagne producer guides and not by our Paris City Vision tour guide. I guess its a gamble on who your guide is and on this particular tour we lost out. If youre a Champagne enthusiast or want better tastings, I would look at other tours that visit other Champagne houses or create your own tour.

  • Excellent tour each tasting was wonderful!

  • Loved the tour! The staff was super friendly, comfy bus and a decent itinerary. I would suggest adding the ability to have a group lunch at the main champagne street. It will give customers the ability to possibly sample a few other local bubbles in the surrounding area.

  • Our tour was great, and it was a lovely way to see the countryside. We traveled via an extremely comfortable new bus, and the guide was very informative and accommodating. Mumm before lunch, then Mercier after lunch. Mumm is in the city of Rheims while Mercier is a beautiful countryside drive about 20 or so minutes outside of Rheims. Our Mercier tasting included a glass of their Brut, but for a mere 6 I think you can buy more tastings. We wanted to simply taste a few more, so our pourer was gracious enough to split a tasting between several champagnes. On our return trip our guide allowed us to stop on the way back for a beautiful picture spot, and the bus also stopped at a more convenient drop off place for some of us rather than returning to the tour office.

  • A very good tour with two cellar interesting visits, that includes its champagne tasting. It's need a little bit more time to be more enjoyable.
