Our tour guide Simone was very knowledgeable and highly recommend him. Visited Moët & Chandon, a medium size winery and a small coop style winery. Had an amazing day. Worth the trip!

Great Trip, Even on a Rainy Day

Simone was an extraordinary guide, and incredibly flexible in accommodating some members of our group who had specific ideas about what they wanted to see. The tour of Tattinger, particularly the clay caves below, was very interesting. The smaller producer and coop winery were also great fun. Unfortunately, the weather was terrible, which limited some of the great views of the region, but it was a great day nonetheless. This is our 5th or 6th Viator-booked tour in France, and they are always first rate. Thank you, Simone!

Champaign for the first time

Great time touring the Champaign area and learning about the process. We have been to Paris several times and done many of the intercity items but have never ventured out to Champaign. This gave us a good overview of the area for a possible future trip, as well as being able to try some great Champaign from 3 different sizes of makers. The meal in the middle was a fantastic experience as well.

Tour was so much fun! Started with croissants and a relaxing car ride. We stopped at 3 champagne houses and had a hot lunch at the second. Jean-Baptiste was very knowledgeable about champagne and the area. We really enjoyed chatting with him and would recommend his tour to anyone!

Must-do for Champagne lovers visiting Paris

John Baptiste(JB) was a phenomenal host! He texted us the night before to confirm pickup time and was very helpful regarding the France Health Pass/CDC documents that we needed to show in order to go on the trip. JB was very knowledgeable and, most of all, extremely passionate about the topic, which made for an excellent experience. The group was very small, us four and 2 other people. We went to Moet & Chandon first and did a tour and a tasting, then visited a few other local champagne houses. JB even treated us to "pain au chocolat" and a champagne toast while we took pictures in one of the scenic areas overlooking the town. Overall, we went to around 5-6 different local winemakers and learned all about their own particular ways of making the champagne, etc. It did get a bit repetitive after a while, but each house had its own charm and all the champagnes were excellent. On the way back, he gave us great recommendations on things to do during our time in Paris and where to eat. Overall, he went above and beyond to give us an amazing Champagne Region Day Trip. 100% would recommend to anyone going to Paris and interested in Champagne

The Champagne Area Day Trip was one of the best days of my trip to Paris. Christoph took us to the Mum champagne house, then to a real vineyard where we drank more champagne and got to taste the grapes from the vines, then to a small champagne house where we were served a fantastic lunch, and then to a small champagne house where we saw a production area. The entire day was filled with champagne, information, and a great tour guide. I highly recommend this tour if you are interested in Champagne.

This was a fantastic tour. Hotel pick up was right on time and so convenient. Tito knew everything there was to know about wine and answered everyone’s questions. The three wineries were beautiful, and the champagnes and lunch were fantastic. I would go on this tour again if I returned to Paris.
