Back in your air-conditioned minivan, pass through the vineyards of the Montagne de Reims, Cote des Blancs, and Vallée de la Marne, between Reims, Ay, and Epernay. As you admire the colorful landscapes, learn how to distinguish the three different Champagne grapes: chardonnay, pinot noir, and pinot meunier.

Settle in at a family-run Champagne estate, where you meet the winemaker and enjoy a delicious meal of traditional food, paired with a Champagne tasting.

Then, receive a fascinating overview of Champagne’s vineyards during a Masterclass animated by your expert guide. Taste one special Cuvee and discover the specificities of this varietal.

Finally, be dropped off back in central Paris in the evening.

Enjoyable experience, but could be improved
Matt_K

Overall, very enjoyable experience. The tour of Moet & Chandon was great, but the single tasting was a bit limited. It was also with numerous people from outside our group, so we definitely lost the small group feel. The lunch was very good. Good quality service and foods with a very nice ambiance. The second champagne house was not huge, but was hoping for something a bit smaller to contrast the other stop. Complaints: The description references 3 champagne houses, but we only stopped at 2. The number of champagnes to taste (8) was correct though. There was one "stop" where we had some champagne, but it was just on the side of a hill for a view. Also, we disagree with the "small group" experience. The van was 8 people and that was fine. But the tour at Moet & Chandon was with others and the other champagne house tour was also merged with another small group tour. Our guide was friendly and great.

Very Bad Booking Experience
Joyce_O
, Dec 2021
Recd no email confirmation & didn’t realize wrong dates were booked but had no contact info for supplier. Very poor booking process. Charged $300 for trip I could not take & request for alternate date not approved. Do NOT recommend this booking.
icon Response from Host , Dec 2021
Hello Joyce, we read carefully our customers feedback. I would like to inform you that the day before tour we sent all the details including the phone number of our guide that you could have informed that you were not able to join. We incurred all the costs, it was the surprise on the morning for our guide because you were not here, he waited for you 20 minutes and arrived late at the morning visit, what you may not know is that 6 other clients were also part of the tour and waited. As you can see in our cancellation policy we don't offer refund if the participant doesn't show up. We are very sorry we couldn't welcome you but as you may understand we can't refund a tour you booked on October 20th.
