Jean-Baptiste was a fantastic guide. Along the trip he educated us on various points of interest not only regarding Champagne but Paris as well as numerous suggestions for our road trip after Paris. He was kind and engaging; he supplemented the champagne guides with additional facts and asked us all questions about our thoughts on the various drinks. He brought us to a stunning view of the small town below where we popped another bottle of a rose. The experience is worth it and provides you with new knowledge and history of Champagne!

We did the Champagne tour with Bertrand and it was excellent. The only negative thing I can say is that they were unable to accommodate picking us up at our Airbnb as we were staying in the 16th arr. Bertrand was lovely, informative and fun though and we had a great day! I especially loved it because now I have my husband drinking champagne, which I love!! Lol.

This was my favorite thing I did while in France! The guide (Emeline) was knowledgeable, fun, and kind. It was so nice to be able to see a bigger Champagne house, as well as two smaller ones. If you are going to Paris, DO THIS TOUR! Thank you so much for an amazing memory as well as so much new knowledge about the champagne making process. Cheers!

We had an amazing experience on our tour with John-Baptiste! He was truly an amazing guide and provided us with so much information about the champagne, the whole Region, and paris itself! Would definitely recommend this tour and this tour guide. It was an amazing experience!

Our guide was amazing, our driver was silent but mighty (great driver) we enjoyed it so much and would recommend this to our friends. Great value!
