    What a fantastic day, in spite of it being rainy, cloudy and overcast! Bastein provided us with a great narrative of the region during our time together and I was sorry to see our day come to an end. Our lunch with a French producer was just delightful…..food was delicious and our host shared her love of champagne and food with such a beautiful smile!

    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

    Angelique was awesome!!! We went outside of peak season so it ended up being just me and my wife, it was pouring rain, then we got caught in a snow storm and it was still sooo much fun. The individual tastings were amazing, her knowledge of each one was awesome and while the Moet visit is very touristy and fun, Lancelot was still the best. The champagne and the food was all amazing, we are southern Americans and had concerns about how a very French experience would be and it was far beyond anything we could have expected, if we could do it again tomorrow, we absolutely would. If you are having any 2nd thoughts about whether this is the right choice or not, I assure you, it is. It was a little more expensive than other tours but it was worth every penny. Thanks again guys and thank you sooo much Angelique, you really saved what could of been a very cold and terrible day!!

What a fantastic day, in spite of it being rainy, cloudy and overcast! Bastein provided us with a great narrative of the region during our time together and I was sorry to see our day come to an end. Our lunch with a French producer was just delightful…..food was delicious and our host shared her love of champagne and food with such a beautiful smile! So glad we added this trip to our Paris itinerary.

This was a lot of fun and all the guides were knowledgeable and friendly. The 3 champagne wineries were very different… very big and well known Moët & Chandon, very small and organic Gabriel Boutet, and the mid-sized cooperative Don Chandon. Our fellow guests made the trip even more enjoyable, but it was well designed by the company to give us a varied taste of the region.

After spending 7 days in Paris and doing several tours this by far was my favorite. The tour was great and our tour guide was great, he really catered to our group. Would HIGHLY recommend this tour.

Our guide Christophe was AMAZING!!! We had an educational and exciting day of champagne, laughs and memorable adventures with new friends. This is the only way to visit Champagne!

Our guide Bastien was wonderful! The wineries and we went to were diverse and interesting. Overall a very successful tour.
