    We really enjoyed this tour of the champagne region and these 2 champagne houses. Christoph was an excellent guide. I would highly recommend this tour.

  • 14-Aug-2019

    Our tour guide, Christophe, was very knowledgeable to the area, champagne, and history. The small group tour is recommended as it was easy for use to all tour the various champagne houses together.
    Both champagne tours and tasting gave us a better understanding of how champagne is made from start to finish. Depending on time of year you tour be prepared to get a little colder down in the caves below as you tour. Being summer when we toured, it actually was a nice cool-off, and you don't spend too much time standing around in the caves.

    Our guided recommended several places to grab a bite for lunch, which was about an hour, before heading to our next tasting. Take advantage of the local restaurants, shops, and parks in the area while at lunch. Have your cameras ready at all times as there's so much to see.

    Enjoy your tour in Champagne. Cheers.

    I love to buy all my tours with you guys, but this tour I don't recommend it at all. They took us to Taittinger and gave us only one tasting we everybody else in another groups tasted 3 different champagne after that they told us that there was no space for the tasting at the Moet et Chandon but they were going to take us to another place at the same level that Moet Chandon, but they took us to Champagne the Castellane there were no comparison between both places, plus the lady in the tour didn't know what was she talking about. Melody the tour guide was a very nice and sweet person; she stopped for 15 to Moet Chandon because I wanted to buy souvenirs.

    Christophe was a great guide. Gave us a quick tour of Reims city, some major champagne house locations and then on to the Tattinget house and chalk caves. After lunch on our own in Epernay we visited Moet and Chandon. Elegant champagne tasting. Only negative is lots of time spent in the van and traffic coming back into Reims but so much more fun than driving on your own.

    Great 1 day champagne tour visiting 2 large champagne houses - Tattinger and Moet ^ Chandon. Also village of Hautvilers where Dom Perrignon is buried. Recommend it to everyone

    Enjoyed our day immensely! Learned much about champagne and the region and enjoyed seeing Notre Dame in Reims. Thibaud was an excellent tour guide.

    Such beautiful scenery and the best tour guide ever!! Melanie was so knowledgeable and friendly. She made the day so much fun and comfortable! Highly recommend the tour and Melanie!

    We are so glad we took this tour! If you have a day in Champagne, we definitely recommend this tour. Dorothée, our wonderful tour guide, did a great job of showing us how beautiful the Champagne region is. She took us to both Taittinger and Moë and Chandon, where we toured the caves and tasted Champagne (including a vintage Champagne at Taittinger). We ended the day with a stroll up and down the Avenue of Champagne in Épernay. This is a small group tour, limited to eight people. Our group had people from Australia, South Africa, Poland and France. We had a lovely time getting to know them all. We highly recommend this one-day introduction to the Champagne region. And, if you're lucky, Dorothée will be your guide.

    Fantastic tour of the Moet and Chandon and Tattinger cellars, along with Reims, Epernay and Hautvilliers. What an awesome, interesting and educational experience. Our giude (Dorothy) was super nice and kind, very well versed in all the information and local history. We did the tour with our two boys and she was especially attentive to them. The tour is in a small group, which makes it even better. We were on time for all activities and had a nice lunch break at a delicious italian restaurant in Epernay. If you are into champagne, this will elevate your enjoyment and experience to a different level, and if you are not, you will be after this tour!

    My husband and I really enjoyed this tour. Our guide Thibault, first took us to a quick ride around Reims, then we went to Taittinger house, beautiful facilities, lot of information on how champagne is made and the best part, the tasting. We also went to the Moet et Chandon facilities, beautiful as well, impressive cellars! Also, excellent champagne tasting. Our guide also took us to see some vineyards and explained in more detail about the grapes varieties used to make champagne and again a little tour of Eparney. One of the things I liked the most is that our group was small, only 8 people, we didnt feel pressured or hurried as may happen with bigger groups.
