Full description
This full-day tour begins with a pick-up at 9:00 AM at the forecourt of the Reims train station (Tuesday, Thursday or Saturday).

When you arrive in the Champagne region, you’ll start off with a sightseeing tour of Reims. The city of coronations, Reims is also the city of Champagne, the most celebrated and festive of wines.

See the Reims Grandes Maisons de Champagne: Veuve Cliquot, Taittinger, Pommery and others. Take a guided tour and enjoy a tasting at the world-famous Grande Maison de Champagne Veuve Clicquot, founded in 1772. Please note that on Mondays, the tour of Veuve Clicquot is replaced by a tour of Champagne G.H. Mumm.

It was at the Cathedral of Reims that King Clovis was baptized, giving birth to the Kingdom of the Franks and beginning a long tradition as the coronation site for the kings of France.

Enjoy a Champagne-tasting lunch in the heart of the Champagne vineyards. At a boutique winery, you’ll be introduced to local specialties accompanied by different types of Champagne.

Head out on the scenic Route du Champagne that winds its way past vineyards, forests and remarkable Grand Cru villages, such as Verzy, Verzenay and Bouzy. The realm of Pinot Noir, 9 of the 17 grand cru villages in the whole of the Champagne region are found on and around the Montagne de Reims.

The special terroir here gives Champagne much of its character. Stop for a tour and Champagne tasting at a family estate. More than 4,000 family winemakers contribute to the prestige of Champagne and maintain the tradition from generation to generation.
