The only place in the world that is able to grow and produce Champagne is located just outside Paris.

Oliver was a great guide. He’s a good and interesting driver. The stop at the small champagne house was most interesting. His translation into English was fun. It was interesting that the tour had an independent and large champagne house. The cathedral at Reims was beautiful, there was enough time to explore. Thank you Oliver for a unforgettable tour.

I love the way the tour was organized- the first visit to the family vineyard with an in depth explanation & then the tour of Moët and Chandon as a review guide. The only complaint we had was the guide recommended a restaurant and only gave us 45 minutes for lunch. We had to severely rush even though we requested more time from the guide (she gave us 10 minutes). All this so we could walk across the parking lot to Moët and Chandon in order to arrive 10 minutes early and then wait another 10-15 minutes.

This was the highlight of our week-long trip to Paris.

John-Phillipe was a terrific guide. He was very knowledgeable, funny, and enthusiastic - a complete pleasure to spend the day with. He escorted us through the various stops on our Champagne tour steadily providing interesting insights. The long day flew by. The Rouen Cathedral stop was wonderful, and having an hour to wander a bit and choose our own lunch spot was great. Going first to a small vintner (Pierre Domi) then to Moet-Chandon worked very well. I wondered if it would be redundant but instead the two built on each other nicely and provided different information and insights into the champagne making process. Next trip to Paris I will do as many tours with John-Phillipe as I can.
