Our guide Tom helped curate a fantastic tour, with a small group of 6 in total. We enjoyed visiting multiple Champagne makers including Nicolas Feuillatte, Leclerc Briant, Mercier and Dom Perignon. A delightful lunch was enjoyed at Michelin star restaurant Le Theatre. Each tasting featured generous pours of two Champagnes, typically a Brut and a Rose style, but special requests were also happily accommodated (eg. a demi-sec for my mum). Our guide was a lot of fun and helped bring our group together for a fun day with plenty of laughs, capping off the day with a stop at the valley top overlooking the vines. Whilst not the cheapest tour available, this is proof you get what you pay for - highly recommend splurging on this tour and making the most of your day trip to Reims.

Guillaume was incredibly knowledgeable and taught me more about champagne in one day then I’d learned in the previous 20 years! This trip was worth every penny!!

What is incredible day we had. We were picked up at the hotel and dropped back off afterwards which was really fabulous. The drive was smooth and good. We saw beautiful countryside and once we got to Epernay it was f incredible. we had so much wonderful Champagne and Tours. questions were answered and we got to have some down tim as well. we were taken care of very well. The lunch was superior, delicious food, wonderful restaurant. All in all it was a splendid day and it was all because of Batiste. He was an excellent guide and host making sure everyone was happy and taken care of. I can’t express it enough to say how fantastic he was. We really adored him. He took great time and patience to make sure everyone had a perfect day. We even got to visit two wonderful churches. They were historic and stunning. And it was.

Our Champagne tour was amazing!!! I went with my family at the end of May and this was one of our most memorable experiences of our trip to France! Tom was our tour guide and he was so nice, funny, and entertaining! He was also informative while keeping things interesting! We toured 3 amazing champagne houses and finished off enjoying our last bottle at the most gorgeous view of Epernay. We also had a delicious three course meal. Tom helped us by explaining the menu and gave us plenty of time to enjoy our meal. Tom gave us a beautiful experience and such great memories! Thank you Tom!:)

Excellent 12 hour day trip - Batiste was a excellent guide. Engaged with our group of 6 continuously with information and was very helpful. First stop was a tour and tasting at Dom Caudron. Following that, a short drive to Epernay for a lunch at Le Theatre where we enjoyed a nice three course lunch (with wine of course). The rest of the day was finished with a trip to Hautvillers where we had a beautiful view of all the vineyards in the valley, a tour and tasting at Moet & Chandon, a stop at another beautiful viewpoint and the drive back to Paris. From pick up to drop off, everything went seamlessly and this was perfect for our last day in Paris. Thank you Batiste!
