Stop At: Moet et Chandon, 20 avenue de Champagne, 51200, Epernay France

Start your tour with the visit of the prestigious Moet and Chandon Champagne house in Epernay, the Champagne Capital. Easily boasting one of the largest Champagne cellars in the world, this luxury Champagne house is home to some 17 miles (28 km) of underground tunnels where their world-famous sparkling wine matures. As you tour this incredible labyrinth of chalk cellars with your guide, learn about the magical process of turning standard white wine into something fizzy! Hear about humidity levels and temperature control, and, see for yourself how the bubbles get into each bottle. At the end of your 1-hour walking tour around the cellars, sample a glass of Moet Champagne and discuss its complex creation with the fellow Champagne lovers in your group.

Duration: 1 hour 15 minutes

Stop At: Champagne Roger-Constant Lemaire, 50 rue de la Glaciere, 51700 Villers-sous-Chatillon France

Had a great experience with Oliver on our tour! He provided history on the drive and fun facts about the region. The salt cave tour was very unique and the second winery had a wonderful personal approach to the tasting and wine making process. He stopped at scenic points for pics and took pics of our groups. Mask and covid requirements were followed. Wish we had more time in Reims but the Cathedral was beautiful and information Oliver shared was a nice addition since the information posted around the Cathedral was only in French. Would highly recommend to friends!

What an excellent day! This region of France has such beautiful views. We enjoyed spending the day with our driver and overall tour guide, Olivier. It was a great perspective to see a big company like Moet and Chandon and a family winery. We got excellent service and information at both. Olivier made stops along the way to show snippets of history and really added to the day! We truly enjoyed our experience.

I give this tour a 1 Star because the champagne was delicious. The rest of the experience was not pleasant.

8 guests are crammed into a van which really should only hold 6. 2 people are seated in the front on a bench seat so you are either jammed against the door or the driver depending on where you are seated. The driver was a nice man who clearly had a meal with garlic the night before. He also was unclear of directions so was typing on his GPS frequently. He also sent text several times while driving. He had some basic knowledge of the area. I dont know his name. Not sure he gave it.

For the price, you get 2 glasses of champagne. Thats it. There is no opportunity to taste any of the other options.

The cathedral in Reims was beautiful but its not necessary to spend 2 hours there. Would rather have had another champagne wine tasting.

Save your money. Do not purchase this tour.

Great day out in the Champagne region. Very interesting and enjoyable tour of Moet and Chandon with tastings at the end. The church in Reims is breathtaking and even had time for a spot of shopping. Mumm was also a fascinating tour of the caves below. So many bottles and such little time!!! Our guide was great with lots of information about the areas we passed through. Recommend this tour of the region.

After taking this tour, I'm shocked it's ranked so highly. At the 2 champagne houses, admission was 20-30 per person for the tour and tasting of 1 glass which is what this tour included. It would have been far cheaper for us to rent a car or hire a driver for the day than to spend 460 on 2 people for 4 glasses of champagne total. The listing said the tour includes a tasting at 3 champagne houses, but we only went to 2. I'm not sure if this was a result of our driver we were early to GH Mumm and Moet so it wasn't a result of us being behind schedule/a time savings or misinterpretting the listing but it says:

Inclusions
Champagne tastings at Moet and Chandon, Hautvillers, and the House of Mumm

With respect to the transportation, I expected a bit more. We were in a Volkswagon van and I had the middle seat up front -- basically with the driver shifting into me and my knees against the dashboard. I think you should strongly consider limiting the tour to 6 or 7 guests instead of 8 as sitting in the middle front seat a bench front row seat I haven't seen since an '87 buick. Our guide was really just a driver and didn't provide any value or add to the trip. He took us from A to B and did not offer any bits of knowledge above that.

The Champagne houses themselves were fantastic! I would absolutely go back to both and loved our tours. I'd highly recommend going, just not on this tour.

This is my third La Vacanza Travel tour within the past year and likely will be my last. Underwhelming and overpriced.
