Our guide Jean-Baptiste was so personable and knowledgeable! Enjoyed our time at Moet Chandon the most. Lunch at a small, family champagne house was really enjoyable as well.

I am a travel agent who booked this for clients desperately wanting to visit at least one of their favorite champagne houses. Based on the description on the website, they name some of the big ones-Vueve, Moet, etc. To be fair, it does say based on availability. However, when my client asked why they were not visiting one of the famous houses, they were told that it was their travel agents fault-more specifically, "Your travel agent did not specify which ones you wanted to see." I booked this on La Vacanza Travel. There is no place on the booking site to say which houses they wanted to visit. There is also nothing in the description that says you can choose. It gives a list of possibilities and that is it. For them to blame the travel agent and try to make me look bad shows a lack of integrity on the part of the management. When I have an unhappy client, I take responsibility for my part. I don't try to unjustly blame the hotel or airline just to cover myself. I gave it two stars because the guests told me they liked their guide. It was the manage that the guide called that decided to blame me for their disappointing experience. They did not even provide a partial refund to my client. I am sure this is a fine tour when all goes well, but travel agents should now that this is not an agent friendly company to work with.

We had a little hiccup with our booking but Alison with Wine Passport handled it beautifully and made sure we got to experience our trip! Bastian was a wonderful guide and provided great insights into the champagne making process. We toured One large house and one small cooperative with the promised 8 tastings which were great! We loved the stop in the vineyard where it was the first day of grape harvest! Lunch was delicious and cozy! We would highly recommend this tour!

This was a great tour for boutique champagne houses. Delish! Our guide, Bastien, was very, very knowledgeable and super friendly. We would have never been able to find these great champagne houses without this tour. Strong recommend!
