    Fabulous experience in the Champagne region! Our guide had the none-too-easy task of catering to a group where some spoke French and some spoke English, and she did it effortlessly, making sure that everyone enjoyed their experience and learned lots. Our first stop, a family-run champagne house in Hautvilliers, was a stand-out moment of the day - the staff could not have been friendlier.

  • From Paris: Small-Group Moët & Chandon Champagne Tour

    3. From Paris: Small-Group Moët & Chandon Champagne Tour

    The only place in the world that is able to grow and produce Champagne is located just outside Paris. On this full-day (11-hour) excursion you’ll also learn about the history of Champagne master Dom Perignon. Visit the quaint chapel and grave site of Dom Perignon, the father of Champagne and then meet with a local producer to learn about the growing process. Enjoy a fully guided tour at the House of Moët and Chandon, the world’s largest producers of Champagne. Take a walk through part of their 40 kilometers of cellars. Before heading back to Paris you’ll also visit the beautiful Cathedral of Reims and have free time to explore inside where all of the French Kings were crowned. During the day you’ll have the opportunity to taste at least 4 different types of Champagne and even pick up some bottles for souvenirs if you’d like. They can accompany you back to Paris in the van.

    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.

    Great tour. Our tour guide Simone was the absolute best. I didn’t feel like the description matched the tour (was less than what we expected from the description). However, it was well worth it and above all, when you have a stellar guide it makes up for everything that felt amiss.. Will definitely love to tour with Simone again

After spending 7 days in Paris and doing several tours this by far was my favorite. The tour was great and our tour guide was great, he really catered to our group. Would HIGHLY recommend this tour.

Our guide Christophe was AMAZING!!! We had an educational and exciting day of champagne, laughs and memorable adventures with new friends. This is the only way to visit Champagne!
