Amazing Tour!
Nov 2019 • Couples
We had Angelique as our guide and she was amazing! She was outgoing and knowledgeable of the champagne industry. The tour started with a drive from Reims to Moet and Chandon where we learned the ins and outs of the industry from a big house. We then toured the countryside and got to see a smaller house as well, all with amble boozing. Such a memorable experience.

Amazing way to see the champagne region
Nov 2019
We just returned from our trip to Reims. We took this amazing tour to Epernay etc to visit Moet.

Angelique was incredible!! So personable and knowledgeable about everything champagne related. Her charm and warm demeanor made the entire day that much better.

The tour had 8 ppl and we had such a great group! A nice way to meet people from all around the world.

While Moet was absolutely stunning! The highlights in my opinion was the tasting and lunch at Le Clos Corbier (which I am dying now to stay at). The lunch was absolutely incredible and the welcoming atmosphere was so lovely. Not to mention the dog is super cute!

The other highlight would be the stop at Lancelot Royer for some blanc de blac grand cru! What an amazing spot and super tasty champagne.

If you are going to visit this region do not leave without doing this tour! Can't wait to explore further!

I learned so much!!
Nov 2019
This tour was a delight and the highlight of our trip to Reims! Our tour guide, Angelique, was wonderful - very friendly, knowledgeable and energetic! She was able to entertain us while sharing her expansive knowledge of the Champagne process and area. We toured two very different Champagne houses and lunch was an incredible experience. I would not change a thing about the tour - a wonderful experience!!!

Happy I Bought It
Oct 2019
Just buy it. Seriously, this experience was incredible. Tom was our guide and he was magnificent. There were 6 people in our group, my partner and I included. Easy pickup right in front of the train station in Reims. Tour went on exactly how it was laid out in the description. After this experience, I can honestly say that I understand the champagne making process and have a better palate. Lunch was classically french and there was plenty of it. Plenty of champagne tasting too. We found one we really liked and were able to buy it on the spot. Never felt obligated to buy at all though. This experience seems quite expensive but it is 100% worth it.

Perfect from start to finish
The tour was excellent, a great day of exploring the champagne region. Tom our guide was very informative and funny the lunch was excellent with local food and a champagne tasting. The family run vineyard had the best champagne in my opinion and will be ordering more in the future. Thanks Tom for a excellent tour highly recommend

What a fantastic day all round. The Moet visit was interesting and educational and like going back in time in the cellars. Our guide (Suzanne) was professional at all times, spoke perfect English and made the whole group feel relaxed throughout the day. The champagne tasting and quality of lunch was way more than I expected and the whole group really enjoyed tasting more champagne and sampling local cuisine. Our final trip to Guy Mea was a real contract to the more corporate champagne houses and again our host was very welcoming and did not push anyone for sales. All in all I highly recommend this trip which if you only have one day in the champagne region, covers everything you need to know and experience.

It's a long day but you get it all!
This tour was our main attraction for our European trip. Our guide Jerome was great communicator and knowledgeable. We saw alot of beautiful countryside, ate great food and, of course, drank champagne! Our lunch experience was top notch and we had a great little dog as our lunch guest.

Plan on a 9 hour day.

I could have done without so much time spent in the church and it would have been nice to be able to try more than one Moet and Chandon champagne. Overall a great experience.
