Come along and discover the Maison Mercier onboard a little train to travel across the cellars.

Emilee was outstanding. Excellent knowledge and enthusiasm. The drive thru Champagne was beautiful. Lunch was absolutely incredible !!! We learned great amount of knowledge regarding complex process of making champagne. Visited 3 champagne houses that were great. I would highly recommend this tour.

Wonderful day! The guides, Simone and Preston (in training) made it a lot of fun. Who knew there were so many different flavours and tastes of champagne? And I love them all! Highly recommend this tour! It was excellent!

Our guide Simone was amazing…very knowledgeable and had lots of stories to tell the group. The tour itself was great, the Champagne region is beautiful and should not be missed

The guide was very knowledgeable and personable. Was on time. And was incredibly helpful with my disabled husband
