1. From Paris: Day Trip to Champagne with 8 Tastings & Lunch

Tour starts at your hotel (if located in Paris) or at the central Paris meeting point. Your driver guide will pick you up in a cozy air-conditioned minivan at around 7.30 AM. Enjoy tasty croissants on the way to Champagne, while your guide tells you all you need to know about the sparkling universe of champagne! Once you arrive in Champagne, you'll start your day with a visit to a very prestigious Estate (Moët & Chandon, Mumm, Veuve Clicquot, Mercier, Pommery, Lanson, etc. > depending on supplier availability). Discover never-ending galleries filled with bottles and of course, finish the guided-tour with a tasting. Back in your air-conditioned minivan, admire the landscapes and stop in the heart of the vineyard to enjoy a masterclass led by your wine expert guide. He will teach you the basis of the wine professional tasting. Next stop is for lunch in a family-run champagne house or at a local restaurant (depending on availability). You will have the chance to taste several glasses of champagne and ratafias (another local wine), paired with local food. Blanc de Blancs, Blanc de Noirs, Champagne Rosé… what would you pair them with? After lunch, enjoy a digestive tour through the vineyard of the Côte des Blancs and Vallée de la Marne. Learn the characteristics of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier, and enjoy amazing views over the vineyard. Get ready to take some pictures! Last but not least, visit another family-run winery where you will learn the art of sabrage or disgorgement “à la volée” (a technique for opening a champagne bottle), depending on availability. Taste several delicious champagnes before heading back to Paris, where you will be dropped off in a central, Hotel de Ville.

What a great experience! My mom and I have never been to the Champagne region so decided to do this as part of our trip to Paris. Lionel was our tour guide and was fantastic! He picked us up from the hotel, gave us water and croissants for the car ride and drove us 2 hours to the region. In between the tours he shared lots of history with us, showed us Dom Perignon’s tomb and took us to an area to show us all the land (which was beautiful) and popped a bottle of champagne for us. We went to 2 wineries to taste their local champagne which was delicious and then stopped for lunch where we got to try even more champagne which was paired with the delicious homemade food we were given. It was such a wonderful experience, will definitely do it again next time we come back!

First up, this was not a cheap excursion given the $AUS exchange rate but I have to say that it was absolutely worth what I spent and it was a highlight of my recent trip to France. Our guide Lionel was punctual, friendly, attentive and very knowledgeable. We went to three different venues, including lunch at one and we also had time for a brief stop at Reims Cathedral. All of the champagne tastings were excellent and I am devo that I don't think I can get any of the brands at home. It was a great balance of information about the process and drinking the product and the passion of everyone involved was easy to see. I heartily recommend this tour if you have a day to spare and you like champagne.

Two of my girlfriends and I traveled from Paris to Champagne a few weeks back, and had the BEST DAY! Our guide, Simone, brought amazing energy to the day, and really went above and beyond to ensure we learned about the region and winemaking process. He also made every aspect of the day fun, entertaining and enjoyable. All of our questions were answered and I felt so comfortable during the entire day. I had my reservations about going to the French countryside during the winter time, but I was wrong! The champagne houses were warm and inviting, and we still had gorgeous views of the vineyards. I would 100% go on another tour, and cannot thank Simone enough for the amazing day!

Our tour guide Alex was phenomenal! The entire day exceeded our expectations. You won’t want to miss this opportunity to experience the Champagne region’s villages and countryside. We visited 3 wineries (each very unique) with Alex who is an expert on wine and champagne (my husband also enjoyed the French history discussions!)

Trip was fabulous. What a great day. Joelle our guide went out of his way to do everything he could to make our day more pleasurable. Book this for the day !
