    Emily and Nicolas were wonderful guides. It was a fun - but very long - day. We were only in Paris for a short amount of time so maybe not the best thing for me to have scheduled. We started at Taittinger where we got to go into the caves that aged the Champagne years ago which was really neat. From there we went to a scenic overlook to have another glass and be able to enjoy the view. Then a smaller family owned winery where we had lunch. The lunch was lovely - it's just there was no view. With the price we paid for the tour I was thinking it would have been more. Then we went to one last winery that had another tour and tasting. We were very tired by the time we got back to Paris with the travel to and from. If you love Champagne - book it! If you are on a short schedule in Paris I am not so sure it's the best fit.

    This tour was led by a knowledgeable and friendly tour guide. We saw much more of Champagne than we ever would have on a self-guided trip. Highly recommend!

    We came to Paris to celebrate our honeymoon and this day trip to champagne was the best way to kick off our 10 days in Paris. We had Alexandre as our guide and he was wonderful and so knowledgeable about wine and champagne. Highly recommend this trip!

    Alexandre was fabulous. So smart about all things champagne. Enthusiastic and passionate about the whole process. Highly recommend!!!

    An excellent tour, from the moment our guide Clem picked us up with fresh croissants in the early morning hours to the easy drop off at the end of the trip. We especially loved seeing the variety of production methods between the big houses and the smaller local producers, and of course tasting all the differences in each location. An absolute blast.

    Due to two passengers tardiness delaying the start of the trip by 30 minutes. What was supposed to be an 11 hour trip, with the delay it was less than 10 hours. Having a 9 seat van with 8 on tour and the driver left us squashed in and found it difficult to get in/out of the vehicle. Maybe charging over $275 USD each their tour could be better vans or less people especially as out of approximately 10 hours for the tour length we were squashed into the van for approximately 6 hours. Seating configuration was 3 in the back, 3 in middle and 2 in front plus driver. As squashed in as we were this is a safety issue. All other parts of the tour were informative and really enjoyable and we could not fault Magda on her tour.

    Great way to see the region. Chloe was a great host. Champagne was excellent and tour was really nice.

    We had a truly delightful day with Jean Batiste and Laura Dreyfus touring three Champagne houses in Epernay France.

    We loved being picked up at our Paris hotel and spending a day with a small group (6 total) people.

    Each tour we experienced built upon the last starting with Moët Chandon, to Le Maison Penet to Dom Courdon. The French luncheon at Le Maison Penet was great paired with four champagne cuvées.

    We highly recommend doing this day-long tour as you will feel pampered, well-educated on how champagne is made and definitely enjoy the various champagne tastings offered throughout the day. Definitely a Five Star experience.
