  • Natasha, our tour guide for the day helped our group of Americans enjoy the Champagne region. We were four couples, strangers at the start, but with our visit to Reims, Moet and Chandon, shared lunch at Le Cave and visit with tasting at Laval Louis, we became world travelers with an enjoyable shared experience. The country is beautiful. I truly recommend venturing out, meeting new people and enjoy champagne.

  • Our guide, Herbert, picked us up at our hotel exactly on time. After one more pickup point, our tour began with a two hour drive to Reims, where we had a short breakfast stop at a wonderful pastry shop close to the cathedral. After a a quick run through the cathedral, we were off to Epernay to see the vineyards and the house of Moet and Chandon on Champagne Avenue, where we were given a tour of the cellar caves and a champagne tasting. Lastly, we stopped at a very small family operated winery for a tour of their production facility and caves, plus a tasting. On the drive back to Paris, Herbert gave us some historical background on the region, which was a major battleground during WWI. We past several military cemeteries from the war. For me, the most interesting part of the day's experience was learning about all the stringent controls and regulations involved in producing champagne.

  • Unfortunately it was raining, however we enjoyed the tour and visited many interesting sites

  • As a person traveling alone, I was looking for a tour where I could do this as a single. Not many tours offer this option. I was extremely thrilled at being in a smaller group. The booking went smoothly, and the tour office was easy to find.
    The drive out into the countryside was great, and a real opportunity to get out of the city. I do wish the driver had talked us about what we were seeing en route. We were tourists after all. He was pretty non-conversant, although not unfriendly. I think he has just done this so many times, he doesn't have a whole lot of passion for the job anymore. That's just my perception.
    The cathedral in Reims was a pleasant stop. I love art, so it was such a treat to see stained glass windows done by some very notable artists.
    Moet and Chandon was worth the visit. Truly it is the best champagne I have ever tasted! The tour was informative, and well run. I also loved the visit to the smaller champagne house, and the added explanation of the viticulture of the area. I give the champagne tasting and tour portion of this trip, a thumbs-up. Don't expect more than a glass at either Moet and Chandon, or the smaller Champagne farm. For me personally, this was fine.
    The lunch venue felt a little less of a quality stop. The food was average, but the wine flowed!
    All-in-all, it was a very pleasant day, and I would do it again.

  • While I enjoyed the tour of the actual wineries this was not a small group tour. There were three vans with 6-8 people each that went on the tours together and ate lunch together. Lunch was mediocre and at a restaurant that obviously serves large tour groups. Our tour guide did little talking and was over 30 minutes late to pick us up. There was no way to reach the guide and no one answered the phones at the office of the tour company. The Reims Cathedral was beautiful but you were just left to wander by yourself.

    The guides at the two wineries were very informative but were employees of the winery not the tour company. The tour of Moet and Chandon was worth the trip, as was the visit to the smaller house.

  • Great scenery, knowledgable guide, awesome wineries.

  • Had a great time. The guide and the other four people on the tour were great fun. Really enjoyed the tour of Moet Chandon and the Cathedral. High light though was the small champagne producers.

  • Enjoyed the tour with great wine tasting etc.

  • Absolutely outstanding experience. Hotel pick up and drop off was much appreciated. Visited large producers as well as a fantastic small grower. Great experience!

  • Vincent was the best driver ever! He had so much knowledge of France and everywhere we were driving to. The tour of the Reims cathedral was awe inspiring, and I thought that that cathedral was the most amazing I have seen, and was better the the Notre Dame cathedral in Paris, and St Peters in Rome. The champagne tastings and lunch were very informative and even educational. Lunch was in a small cafe and was more than we could even get down, but was very good! This tour was well worth the cost and the experience, and I would highly recommend it!
