    We thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Anna. We all learned so much about Champagne, especially all the regulations in place to produce. Unfortunately, she did not drive us through the Champagne Avenue as described in the inclusions. Perhaps she had already done this with the group from Reims. There was also a mix up with returning us to Epernay as half the group started from Reims and we were picked up at Epernay. The tour ended in Epernay but she drove to Reims to drop off the first group and then back to Epernay. By the time we got back to Epernay all the shops were closed and we had wanted to do some shopping. Other than that, we would highly recommend this tour. Just make sure and question the driver when they start heading out of town near the end of the tour if you take the tour from Epernay. Also, remind them about Champagne Avenue!

    Good tour. Very knowledgable guide and learning experience with a champagne vintner.

    Our tour gave us a chance to see more of the countryside around Epernay , including the village of Hautvillers. We learnt a lot about how champagne is made and the tour of the boutique winery was excellent. We would definitely recommend this tour because it was so personal.

    This was a excellent tour with very good guides who explained the whole champagne making process from grape growing whilst in a vineyard through blending and making whilst in a small champagne house. I would highly recommend it.
