Great tour. Our tour guide Simone was the absolute best. I didn’t feel like the description matched the tour (was less than what we expected from the description). However, it was well worth it and above all, when you have a stellar guide it makes up for everything that felt amiss.. Will definitely love to tour with Simone again

We hat a great day with Stephane, Met smart People and went to wonderful places. Thank you once again for all the interesting information and your kindness! Who ever want‘s to learn more about champagne and reims...; give stephane a call and he will arrange everything in a perfect way! Merci beaucoup Sonja+Roland A bientôt!

This was an incredibly well organized tour where I learned so much about how champagne is made. Our tour guide Jean-Baptiste was very knowledgeable himself and the tours and tastings got into even more detail. Lunch was delicious and the length of each visit was perfect. Highly recommend!

Very good alternative.

The guide Ricardo, in addition to being very friendly, spoke correct Spanish throughout the trip, acting as a translator when necessary.
