  • 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!

  • This is a "must do" tour if you are visiting Paris and want to see the beautiful countryside of France. The tours of the champagne houses were fantastic! Moët was our highlight! Our tour guide was knowledgeable and she had a desire to get it all in for us! She didn't want us to miss a thing!

  • This was extremely disappointing. We spent the most money on this tour because we love wine country and had the worst experience compared to our other tours. While the guide was knowledgeable and competent, the feel was not that of a Small-Group because while our van contained 8 people we ended up being squeezed in with 2 more groups totaling close to 30 people at each winery. We anticipated an intimate visit to some smaller, lesser-known, family vineyards and ended up at the stuffy, overly-pretentious Moet and Chandon most of the tour, ending with a smaller winery that felt like a less-experienced M and C. May as well have been on a tour bus full of people. Don't take this tour unless the format is revised and more specific. Could have been SO much better. The setting was so beautiful but the experience left us thinking we wasted our last day in Paris.

  • The trip was really once in a lifetime. Our tour guide Fredrick from ParisCity Vision was really great and knew his stuff. If your in Paris, take the trip, spend the money, it's definitely worth it. You get to walk through the same Moet Champagne Cellars that Napoleon walked through. There's plenty of champagne knowledge you gain from the tour guide and the people you meet at the different winery. You get to see the church, walk through Moet, meet a small producer, eat at a local restaurant and go into the church in Reims. Everything other than the food, really blew me away. 5 stars for sure!

  • Fabrice was a great tour guide and helped make this trip extra special. We took this tour a couple of years ago and the tour guide wasn't as personable. He was only interested in talking to a pretty Russian girl that joined the seven of us on the tour. Fabrice made us all feel welcome.

  • We enjoyed how convenient this tour was with pickup right from out apartment. Nicholas was extremely willing to provide background information about the sites we were about to visit as we moved among the champagne producers we visited the day of our tour. Lunch was great and a wonderful break from the ride to the region.We especially liked the personal attention of the small group tour and would recommend it to anyone who wishes to experience Champagne first hand.

  • What a great day! The guide for the day to the Champagne Region, Pablo, was terrific - very knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and helpful. We learned a lot about the production of delicious champagne. We tasted champagne from a large and a smaller producer - great! We had a delicious lunch and enjoyed beautiful scenery as we drove to and from Paris. Definitely would recommend this day to others.

  • This was, without a doubt, the most disappointing and misleading tour of our holiday.

    The tour was promoted as a small group maximum of eight and whilst the minivan only seated eight, at each location we met up with two other minivans from the same Company and our small group became a tour group of approximately 24, removing all intimacy and appeal!!

    Our bus driver tour guide did not introduce himself, did not provide the promoted personalised attention he barely spoke and spent most of the drive back to Paris simultaneously driving and texting on his phone, making for a very nerve racking experience.

    Whilst the tour of Moet and Chandon and G Brunot cellars lived up to expectations, the cons outweighed the pros on this tour and at AUD379.68, this tour is not good value for money!
