Disappointed

The driver was quiet abrupt and rude at times with the some of the girls in the group. We were told that during booking that we would have a flexibility of stopping at places on our way and that was not even an option. Also during the booking I remember the person saying the wine tasting was part of the tour and we got there we had to pay for both the wine places. The second wine place was a total surprise as the cost was not mentioned before. We had two girls in the group that do not drink and they would have chosen not to be part of the second tour had they known there was a charge. The driver was quiet annoyed and rudely talking to us at the second winery when we told him we were not happy that the cost was not mentioned before. It was like a setup between the driver and the wine house where he got some commission. In all a very bad experience and would not recommend this tour to anyone.

Phillipe was very good and knowledgeable

We visited a small champagne house first before proceeding to Moet and Chandon. Phillipe the tour organiser was very gracious and is the one who suggested the small champagne house as well a restaurant for lunch. Being from the region, he knew everything and advised us what to do and what to see. He even took us by the church where Dom Perignon was a monk as a bonus! The car was a six seater Mercedes and very comfortable. I highly recommend champagne tours with Phillipe

We visited a Smaller Independent Champagne Distiller and a Mega Distiller with a Michelin Star Lunch in between. We visited Reims and Epernay, we enjoyed some great champagne and enjoyed the beautiful country side. Our driver was very knowledgeable of the area and got us early to all of our appointments

What a wonderful day spent in the champagne region with family and friends. Phillipe was extremely knowledgeable and willing to accommodate our request. We visited a large champagne house first followed by lunch and then visited a small champagne house so we could compare the different styles in producing champagne. The day ended with a short visit to the cathedral in Reims and then back to Paris. Highly recommend this tour. Again, our guide Phillipe was fantastic!

A very efficient operation! When I didn't response from the states about my preferences about the tour in a timely manner they call me and home and we disused what we were interested. I was very impressed with the efficiently We had a fabulous trip with Sebastian . He picked us up at our hotel promptly at the scheduled time in a comfortable car. We visited 2 different Champagne houses, one was a smaller petite vineyard and the other was a larger one, both in Reims. We had an opportunity to see the Cathedral as well. We also had a nice lunch at a restaurant which Sebastian picked out. Sebastian was very friendly, professional and a world of knowledge about Champagne as well as history and facts France. A great day and I would highly recommend this trip if your looking for an enjoyable and educational day.

One of the best parts of our Paris vacation! The best way to see what is just on the outskirts of the city. Request Frederic! He was incredible and so knowledgable of not just the champagne and different champagne houses but of the history in the surrounding cities as well. I 100% recommend booking this tour. Can't wait to go back!

This trip was fantastic. The operators were highly flexible and communicative throughout the entire process. Nathan was the best so if you can get him, you know your trip will be amazing. He was knowledgable and flexible and came with great suggestions, information, and history of the area. He had that perfect blend of letting you do your thing and being there as a guide when you wanted him there. Don't hesitate, this tour was totally worth it!

The tour guide Frederick was outstanding! We booked a private tour due to time constraints and he kept us on schedule. His knowledge of Paris, the Champagne area and suggestions were most helpful.....and so glad that we had a chance to see the cathedral in Reims. Frederick was able to share much of its history as well. He not only made/confirmed our reservation for a private tour of Veuve Clicquot but also made lunch reservations and ensured that we returned on time.

Great private tour that included different types of champagne houses from more commercial to family run. Overall we really enjoyed this tour but would have liked to have seen our guide offer stops for photos of the region rather than just transporting us from place to place. We passed many opportunities for great photos and while we couldn't have stopped at them all, a few would have been nice. A great day otherwise.

Our guide, Frederic, was fantastic --- we really enjoyed our time with him and, in addition to the Champagne tour, he gave us a great tour of the cathedral at Reims.
