If you come from Paris by train, book it as soon as possible to get the best fares and take the journey leaving from Paris Est at 7:38 am and arriving Reims centre at 8:41 am. There is a connection in this itinerary : - 1st train leaves at 7.38 am from Paris Est and arrives at 8.18 am at Champagne Ardenne TGV - 2nd train leaves at 8.30 am from Champagne Ardenne TGV and arrives at 8.41 am at Reims centre. This train will be on the opposite plateform (it will take you only 1 minute to change !) If you prefer taking a direct train, then take the 6.58am train from Paris Est which arrives at Reims Centre train station at 7.44am. We will meet outside the train station of Reims centre in front of the tourist office. Take the walking exit « REIMS CENTRE ». Please be there at least 5 minutes before the tour departure. Be careful, there are two tourists offices in Reims. The meeting point is at the train station tourist office, not the cathedral tourist office. Enjoy your day !

9:00 AM
This activity will end right where it started.
Meet your guide at the Reims railway station in the city center in time for a morning departure. Climb aboard a comfortable minivan with a total of eight passengers or fewer and begin your drive to Champagne country. Begin your tour with a visit to one of France’s most famous Champagne houses: Moët and Chandon. Learn about the Champagne industry while sipping your first tasting of the day.

Then, continue to La Montagne de Reims and walk through the vineyards while learning about grape varieties from your guide, before driving down Champagne Avenue in Epernay. Stop to visit the historical town of Hautvillers, former home to the Champagne master Monk Dom Perignon, and visit the church where it is rumored Champagne first flowed.

Step inside Le Clos Corbier for a local lunch of regional specialties like Reims ham and rose biscuits paired with wine and Champagne before a tasting class takes you through the process, from grape to bottle. Finally, visit a family-run winery that uses traditional processes before your return to Reims.

A novel tour in the famous Champagne regions
Andrea_S
, Apr 2022
The entire tour was fantastic. We had a good group and everyone enjoyed the tour and had fun. I enjoyed seeing the wide range of vineyards and really appreciated the small owners as well as the large companies. I am glad that the vineyards owned by individuals have a place at the table with the large companies in making decisions about grapes and wine.

Champagne is beautiful. Sadly the tour guide’s political talk was too ‘heavy’ and unwanted
Rhonda_W
, Apr 2022
The champagne region was beautiful I found the tour guide to talk excessively about politics - I wanted a light and relaxing day and I was very uncomfortable with his references to politics. I feel that the tour guide also needed to be more respectful of the guests requirements to use the bathroom.

Martin was fantastic!
Makenzie_M
, Apr 2022
We had an absolutely amazing time on this day trip! Martin was a very knowledgeable and friendly tour guide. He was an expert in the champagne making process, the area, and the history of Champagne. The lunch at the family winery was so delicious and a really pleasant experience overall. We unfortunately could not go to Moet & Chandon because of some scheduling conflicts, but they substituted the tour with Tattinger and we were just as pleased! This was by far the easiest way to travel the Champagne region, and with the added benefit of the private family winery experience, it can't be beat! I will recommend this trip to anyone visiting!

Great guide Suzanne - worth a million bucks. Super fun champagne tastes Moet could have a sit down taste - stand-up a bit hurried
icon Response from Host , May 2022
Dear Darrell, Thank you for your feedback. We are very happy to hear that you spent a great day with Suzanne. As far as your visit at Moët & Chandon is concerned it is the way they chose their guests to taste their wines in their wine-tasting cellars and it is part of the experience. Despite this part of the day we hope that you enjoyed the whole tour. Do not hesitate to contact us next time you come to France, we are also based in Bourgogne, Bordeaux, Loire Valley, or Provence !

This tour was amazing!! Totally worth the money paid. The tour guide Martin was great!!! He was funny, professional and made the tour so much fun! Pick up location was easy to find and we were picked up on time. The entire tour was amazing but the best part was that you actually go to enjoy every minute. Sometimes tours rush you to get everything done. This tour is perfectly timed so you aren’t rushing from place to place. Would 100% recommend!!

Amazing memorable champagne tour
Natalie_B

We had a wonderful experience. Our tour guide Tom was very professional and lots of fun. He could tell us a lot about the history, the region and the champagne making process. The visit to the houses was amazing and last but not least the tasting and lunch was memorable. Matthias and his crew did a fabulous job and we all felt this tour was an experience we would never forget. Good luck with all your great plans!! We would definitely recommend this tour to everyone! If you are looking for a Professional tour with a personal touch, this is it!!!!

So glad we chose this experience! We'd 100% recommend. We did the champagne tour our first full day in Reims and it was a great way to learn about the area, the champagne region and houses that grow there, and a behind the scene look at the industry. Jerome was AMAZING, the lunch was incredible, and everyone was so knowledgeable and made this one of our favorite parts of our trip to France. Absolutely worth it and we would definitely book again!

Excellent day out Champagning!
Alex T
, Nov 2019
My wife and I took this tour on a rainy day on October 27, 2019. It turned out to be an excellent tour/day with Guillaume (not sure of correct spelling). Based on my experience a good tour depends totally on the tour guide. Guillaume made it worthwhile in a day that was overcast and mostly raining. We visited Moet & Chandon and a couple of smaller wineries. Lunch could have been better; salad and charcuterie.

One of a kind experience!

This tour was even better than expected! I thought visiting Moët & Chandon would be the highlight of the day (and even though it was awesome), it ended up being the least memorable part! Lunch and tastings at the tour company’s owner’s home and the local small organic champagne house were the real highlight! All of the guides (especially Suzanne) were so friendly and knowledgeable. I will be recommending this particular tour to anyone who will listen to me lol! You won’t be sorry!!!
