Full description
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, Veuve Clicquot, Mercier 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. Then you will practice by enjoying a special cuvee. 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! Your guide will drive you to Hautvillers, a typical French village, home of the legendary Dom Perignon. 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, well connected area.

After considering multiple different options for touring Champagne, we decided to choose this one as may be a bit pricier, but it included travel to and from the area and a delicious lunch along with three different houses. Simone was a wonderful tour guide and had surprises for us all throughout the day, even allowing for my wife to stop and take a beautiful picture during the return trip home. I’d say this tour was well worth the price, and a great way to spend our first full day in France.

BOOK THIS TOUR! Jean Baptise (JB) was amazing! He exceeded our expectations of the tour. It was a great day. We enjoyed the tour and would definitely recommend. The lunch was amazing. The champagne house that served lunch was very accommodating to one of the girls in our group by providing gluten-free and dairy-free options. Gluten free is difficult to come by in France, so we were so appreciative that they took the time to do this. They also accommodated other members of the tour with vegetarian options. All of the champagne was great and there were opportunities to purchase bottles to bring home. We learned a lot and would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Paris or the region!

Our trip with Thomas as the guide was amazing. We had a very timely pick up and journey to Champagne. He was interactive, joyous and full of great knowledge of both Paris and Champagne. We even got to stop at a great viewpoint of the city. Highly recommend both Thomas and this journey!
