Great tour
Carolyn_R, Mar 2023
We enjoyed a fantastic day to a beautiful place. Our guide was first class. The lunch and the champagne at Voirin-Jumel were and absolute highlight. The last stop at one of the smaller houses was a little disappointing but that was the only negative. The rest of the experience was wonderful.
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Hi Carolyn, we are so glad you enjoyed your tour! We are sorry to hear that the last experience was not as amazing as others during the day. We look forward to welcoming you back!
Great time
Rounak_C, Mar 2023
The tour was great. One of the three stops, we toured a small vineyard that was passed on for multiple generations. It was nice to see a small family business, still doing things the old fashion way.
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Thank you Rounak, we are glad you enjoyed so much your visit at Champagne Liébart on the afternoon. We look forward to welcoming you again on tour to visit other traditional and familial Champagne domains!
If you like wine/champagne this is a must do!
Dominic_S, Mar 2023
This was the highlight of our trip to Paris! Definitely worth spending the day touring the Champagne region. It was only a couple hour drive, we met some amazing people and drank some great champagne…Lunch was tasty also!

Matthew_S, Mar 2023
JB was a fantastic guide. Very knowledgeable and gave us a great tour. The highlight was my wife being given the opportunity to use the cutlass to open the champagne at Dom Caudron!
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Thank you for your kind words about JB, we are glade you and your wife enjoyed the tour with him. What a chance for having experienced the "sabrage" of a champagne bottle!!
Best Tour I Have Taken In Years: Smiles, Laughter, Stimiulating Conversations, and lots of Champagne!
Eric_H, Mar 2023
Planned a 7 day trip to Paris to celebrate my partners birthday. We did all the normal tourist things including the Eiffel tower, museums, and of course great food. I have done many tours of wineries, and excursions, but never have I had such an amazing experience! From the begining there was exlempenary service, we were staying at the Marriot Villages outside of Paris and the company graciously picked us up outside of the pick up location. Our guid Simone truly was the shining gem of this tour, he not only was informative concerning every facet of chamgpagne and the region, but made the entire trip a never ending cascade of smiles, laughter, and stimulating conversations. It was my partners birthday and Simone took us to this amazing overlook of the vines and showed my partner how to pop a bottle of champagne and gave her a spectacular moment. I am recommedning the tour and Simone to all my friends and family. We learned the beauty of champagne, the love for the land, the philosophy of love, and most importanlty had amazing champagne!
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Thank you so much for this amazing review Eric ! We will tell Simone about your kind words towards him. We truly are glad you enjoyed you day in champagne that much. And most of all that we could transmit to you the love we have for champagne and its great land ! Wishing you all the best in your future travels !
Very memorable
Annie_P, Feb 2023
This was our first tour of the Champagne region. Jo, our private guide was very nice and knowledgeable about the region. The private ride was super comfortable for our party of 6, lunch was delicious at a local restaurant. We definitely recommend doing this private tour with family and friends and you'll be in good hands if Jo is your guide.
Response from Host, Feb 2023
Thank you Annie for this amazing review and these nice words on Jo. We're glad you enjoyed that much your first experience in Champagne with this private tour !
Fantastic Experience
Yolanda_H, Feb 2023
Our tour guide, Bastien is a very knowledgeable and professional young man. He picked us up from our hotel, however the drop off site was at a different location centrally located and was easy for us to get to the hotel. We had an amazing time filled with laughter, good food, and of course plenty of champagne 🍾🍾🍾
Response from Host, Feb 2023
Many thanks for your lovely review and these nice words on Bastien ! We are happy to know you had fun and good food and champagne throughout the whole day :)
Snowy wine-filled day!
Beth_K, Jan 2023
We went as a couple for a champagne tour and tasting in January 2023. We got paired with one other couple, who ended up being a great match! It was a beautiful day as we drove into the snow-filled region. Be warned when you go in off-season, the big champagne hours aren't open but it was interesting to see the production at the smaller establishments. We also had a semi-private lunch with a few people on another tour group. We drank ALOT of champagne (probably too. much, ouch) but it was so fun and delicious. Shoutout to tour driver and sommelier Mathilde for putting up with us! Dress warm in winter.
Response from Host, Jan 2023
Many thanks for your great review Beth ! We are more than happy to know that you enjoyed your wine tour and that you learned more about Champagne :)
Happy Taster
Anne_M, Jan 2023
Seeing the beautiful countryside and learning about the champagne region. Matilda did a great job explaining everything to us. The champagne houses were lovely as well as the champagne too!
Response from Host, Jan 2023
Thank you Anne for your kind feedback on your tour in Champagne. We wish you all the best in your future travels 😊
A spectacular tour with an amazing guide (Joel)!!
gcsass, Jan 2023
What an Amazing day! Our tour guide, Joel, was top notch! He kept us appraised of his arrival to pick us up and then provided exceptional service throughout the tour….he was even able to add a stop at Norte Dame du Reims which we were super excited about as Notre Dame du Paris is closed. He was very informative and attentive and went the extra mile to get to know each guest. The first cave we visited, Pommery, was awesome! This cave was worth the price of the tour alone! The lunch stop was delicious and you will not leave hungry! After lunch we had a few extra minutes so Joel took us to a scenic overlook of the valley and to the abbey where Dom Perignon was buried…..another bonus! The whole day was informative, fun and well worth the price! I could not recommend this tour any more…’s perfect! A must do if you are in a Paris and would love to get to the countryside and try some champagne!
Response from Host, Jan 2023
Thank you for taking the time to write such a nice review, we’ll pass the message to Joel ! We are always happy to know that you had an exceptional time on your wine tour from Paris. We’re also glad to know that you feel like it was worth your money and that you learn a lot about Champagne !
Fantastic experience. Highly recommend it.
Kevin_B, Jan 2023
Our guide, Joe'l, communicated with us prior to let us know about our meeting. He met us right on time at our hotel. Joel was an excellent guide as he had professional training in wine making. On the way to the Champagne region he spend the time explaining the champagne making process and the grapes used. Once we arrived the tasting houses we visited were excellent. The lunch that was included was very good and was also in a tasting house, which was a nice bonus. In all, the entire experience was fantastic and we would recommend it to anyone interested in champagne or a nice day trip from Paris.
Response from Host, Jan 2023
Thank you very much Kevin! It was a real pleasure to have you on the tour. We will forward your message to Joel. You are now part of the Champagne family and will be able to tell it all to your friends and family :) We wish you all the best for the new year.
Wonderful start to finish!
Paul_M, Dec 2022
Our guide, Jean Baptiste was excellent. From our pick up at our hotel at 7:30am until our drop off in central Paris at 5:30pm; he took very good care of us the entire way. He was our driver and guide the entire day. He was very knowledgeable about wines and champagnes. The highlight was definitely the lunch with pairings. I was a bit disappointed that the some others on the tour did not tip the Jean at the end since he was sensational. Otherwise, we would do this tour again when we return to France.
Response from Host, Dec 2022
A huge thank your Paul! For your wonderful review and for your nice words on Jean Baptiste. I will forward your message to him so he can be proud!! I hope we can make you discover another wine region next time! All the best to you and enjoy the end of year celebrations.
Best Experience Ever
Indira_S, Dec 2022
Simone was absolutely fantastic! I’d consider him France’s National Treasure! He has the entire day planned with so many surprises and tricks up his sleeve. His knowledge of wine, champagne and the region was out of this world. Also his kindness and his personality are not to be found elsewhere! I’d recommend 100 times over with him!
Response from Host, Dec 2022
Haha!! If a person can become a national treasure, we will think about Simone!!! Thanks a lot for such a nice review on Simone and the trip to Champagne. Have lovely end of year celebrations!
Get out of the city
Ebony_L, Dec 2022
This was a great day trip out of the city. Champagne is the closest wine region to Paris so if you're short on time and want a wine tour, you should head here. It's only a couple of hours out of the city, with a stop first to Reims to see a less famous but very important Notre Dame. We visited 3 different wineries. You have ample time a each, and lots of opportunities to buy and taste. The larger wineries can ship to the USA. We met some cool people on our tour and our guide was great.
Response from Host, Dec 2022
Thanks a lot Ebony for your nice review! We are very glad you had a good day, meeting new people, while drinking champagne! Have great end of year celebrations!
Kim_S, Dec 2022
Excellent tour at Moet & Chandon. Delightful lunch at a local champagne family business ending with a co-op tour. Overall, a great day of champagne tasting in the country!
Response from Host, Dec 2022
Thank you Kim!! Have a food time in France and I wish you wonderful end of year celebrations!
