Excellent tour and we really enjoyed the variety and quality. Guillaume was a great guide who was very knowledgeable about champagne. Lunch was nice quality, mini can was comfortable. Pick up was on time we got picked up at 7:30pm and dropped off around 6pm. It was a casual and relaxed small group of 6. Only one suggestion is to stop for a cafe/ snack on the drive out (even if gas stop by side of highway as most people didn’t have breakfast and you are drinking by 10:30am. So we were all a bit tipsy till lunch :) Thank u for a lovely day

What a perfect day traveling through the beautiful champagne region in Reims. My daughter and I enjoyed the different champagne tours and tastings. A fabulous sit-down 3-course lunch in the afternoon followed by 2 more tastings. We visited the Notre Dame Cathedral of Reims, which was spectacular, and ended the day at a breathtaking overlook of the countryside and vines with a glass of champagne. Great friends were made and laughter was had by all. Our tour guide, Tom was very helpful and joyful.
