First of all, the tour visited a large producer (Moët) known as a ‘negotiant’ as they buy in most of their grapes from producers. Moët have very plush premises in Epernay and the tour was well-polished, finishing off with a sample of Moët Imperiale. The next stop was at a small producer and champagne maker, Julien Chopin. The sampling was far more generous with 3 Champagnes and a dessert wine. They served lunch too, which was plentiful and tasty. This was our favourite stop and the Champagne was very nice. Finally we went to a cooperative whose name escapes me. They have an emphasis of using Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunière grapes. We had 3 samples here, though a bit smaller in size than in the other two producers. Throughout the trip we were given lots of information about the Champagne making process, it was fascinating. The driver and guide for the day was Julia and she was fantastic. She was very knowledgeable, had a pleasant personality and spoke excellent English too.
We got a very detailed description so it was very easy to find our host Daniella. It was a very warm welcome and we felt immediately like being under friends. We had very good conversation during the whole evening and the time passed by too quick. We liked the offere food and beverages so that we left our host very satisfied and enriched with a new experience. My wife and I which and hope, that these hosts, who open their homes for sharing an evening with foreign people will never make any negative experiences because this is excellent way to bring people together.
I had a great time. The hostess quickly switched to English so I could clearly understand. The mobile map made it easy to keep us with what attractions we were passing, but made it easy to just relax and enjoy the sights. I recommend this to everyone!
A great cruise alongside the most famous monuments in Paris about which an audio guide provides interesting information. The boat is very big so there is a lot of space. Crepe after the cruise is a delicious end to the experience.
Had the best tour experience with Julian. He was so accommodating and flexed our schedule due to the weather, enjoyed riding in his golf cart and we were able to see places off the beaten path. I would recommend this tour.
