Explore one of the great wine-producing areas of France on a small group tour of the Champagne region. Sample the sparkling produce of this world-renowned area, such as the Champagne Taittinger, one of the last Champagne houses to be owned by the original family.  With varietals consisting of 50% pinot noir, 15% pinot meunier, and 35% chardonnay, the Taittinger vineyard is an unsurpassed example of a Champagne style in which chardonnay plays such a significant role. The vineyards production is supplemented by the contractual acquisition of grapes from independent suppliers operating the finest vineyards in the Champagne region.  En route to Épernay, travel through the Marne Valley vineyards to meet the legendary monk Dom Pérignon who produced the most expensive wines of France in the 17th century and is now buried in the church of the former Benedictine Hautvillers Abbey. Visit Épernay, often referred to as the "Capital of Champagne Wine," where the main street appears like an exhibition of luxurious mansions housing illustrious Maisons de Champagne.  Discover some of the most prestigious names, including Moët & Chandon, Perrier-Jouët, and Pol Roger and learn about the 100 kilometers of tunnels beneath the street. Take a break to enjoy lunch in one of several options in the city center during 1 hour of free time.  Next, take a guided tour and enjoy a tasting at the world famous Maison de Champagne Moët & Chandon.

Even though already had a walk through in Reims previous day the guide gave a great and improved impression of the City. Visits to Taittinger and Moet & Chandon was good, but the information from the house guides was a bit repetitive since Champagne is produced the same way both places. The tasting gave the opportunity to know the difference and individual preferences. Our guide Sebastian was excellent; informative, helpful and full of knowledge.

Our guide was fantastic, all we needed to do was pay for the package and enjoy ourselves. We got to do tastings at Tattinger and a small champagne house, even bought a bottle and some merchandise because it was lovely. Champagne is under-rated but so worth visiting! Would love to check out other activities on my next trip here.

My friend and I joined this fabulous half day trip around a big and small champagne house. The tour guide Martin was extremely knowledgeable and friendly, who answered all our questions. The champagne tastings were delicious and generous. I would highly recommend this tour for anyone visiting Reims.

Me and my fiancé had a fantastic time. Angelique was a amazing guide. We will definitely be recommending this to any friends/ family traveling to this area.

Perfect mix of experiences and Sebastian was the best tour guide!
