My husband and I had a wonderful time on the Sparkling Tour with Valentin! Reserving a spot on the tour was quick and easy. The meeting spot at the train station was very convenient as we had taken a day trip to Reims from Paris on the TGV. Valentin took us and 6 others to two small champagne houses outside of the city. We were able to taste 3 different champagnes at each house and they were all fantastic! The scenery was beautiful and it was such a great experience to see all of the vineyards and even meet the owners of the champagne houses. We learned so much about the process of making champagne and have a new appreciation for it and this region! Valentin is an amazing guide…he knows so much and is clearly very passionate about what he does! If you take a trip to Reims, you must book this tour!

What a wonderful day exploring the Champagne region! Valentine did a great job thoroughly explaining the champagne process while touring three small Champagne houses. He was knowledgeable, passionate about the region, and made the day fun. Lunch was delicious and the champagne houses we visited were all different and charming. We were able to purchase some bottles and Valentin will even handle the shipping (even with the shipping costs, still a great deal). Thanks for a fabulous day, Valentin!

Valentin has made himself a great little business that suits him well. He is a local, well informed, très sympa, and knows how to make everyone feel comfortable. We learned, we tasted, we journeyed, we lunched, and tasted more for a whole day with 6 other people. You absolutely need to take a whole day to thoroughly enjoy the experience. Also he takes care of sending back any bottles you can’t live without. Since these were smaller vignerons, make sure you purchase some as well. Merci pour l’expérience.

My wife and I just spent a day w Valentin in champagne country. What a wonderful trip! We’ve done a number of Parisian tours and tourist activities and this is one of, if not the best! Excellent value for the money!
Valentin is very knowledgeable, he speaks very good English having spent a year in Texas . He is from the area and has excellent contacts in the champagne production community. Lunch was excellent as advertised. At the end of the day we noted how the day had no lulls or slow times. We were never rushed, and there was always time for questions. Overall a tremendous value! As others have said, there should be a 6th Trip Advisor star for folks like Valentin!!
BTW do the full day!!

An awesome afternoon visiting champagne houses near Reims. Valentin was a delightful host, sharing his enthusiasm and knowledge for champagne and the region. This tour is a perfect break from the intense busy crowds in Paris.
