    Magnifique journée avec notre guide Angélique. Nous avons appris énormément sur le champagne. Une master class très instructive. Une ambiance détendue et sympathique, des visites de vignerons à l'écoute.

    Our guide Martin was fantastic. He was very well-informed, funny and patient and really allowed our small group to enjoy our day. Absolutely delicious lunch in a gorgeous setting. The day felt relaxed but covered a lot so that we left feeling very well-informed. I highly recommend this tour!

    We had a really great time on this tour! I was initially a little apprehensive of picking this tour because you only visit two locations and I was tempted to pick a tour that hit more stops. I’m happy to report we had a fabulous time and I have no regrets. The first stop is a building owned by the tour company where you learn a lot about the production of champagne in fun ways and with tastings. I learned so much! After that you have a FABULOUS lunch paired with two other wines and a dessert liquor. We then drove to the church where Dom Perignon is buried and then briefly stopped at a lookout overlooking the beautiful region. From there we drove to a small champagne house outside Epernay and saw their wine production and sampled three of their champagnes. Martin was an excellent guide and driver. He was extremely knowledgeable and funny and we never felt rushed. He had some great recommendations for what to do with the rest of our time in Epernay. Would definitely recommend this tour!

    The guide,Liza, she was so knowledgeable and lovely with it. What a fabulous day and we’ll worth it.

    Our guide was Suzanne and she did a top notch job of educating our group not only about the vineyards, grapes and smaller Champagne productions but also made our visit fun with a few hands on challenges in the art of champagne tasting. The lunch was very good and I never felt rushed. It is quite nice to actually meet some of the family involved in the business. We ended the day with a visit to Hautvillers and a great view spot of the vineyards. I really liked this tour and I recommend it highly to get a well rounded visit to the champagne region.
