Customer reviews
THERESA B LENSMYER

The tour was great! I had a bit of a problem confirming ahead of time but once I knew where and when, it was fantastic.

Toh Yin

The tour was conducted at a comfortable place and we did not feel like we were being rushed around from one place to another. The two cellars we visited - mumm and mercier were lovely, and the in-house guide/tram tours were informative and engaging. There was also sufficient time and opportunity for us to choose and purchase some champagne to bring home. Free time at Reims was also more than sufficient for a good set lunch near the cathedral and also some time to pick up souvenirs. It might be a little on the pricey side given that we were limited to only 2 glasses of champagne during the tastings, would be much better if we were allowed to taste more variety before purchasing.

Mrs H Chaplin-Alomes

Really enjoyed this tour, the champagne region and the cellar tours were very interesting and Reims is a good place to stop, visit the cathedral and have lunch.

Keith McDaniel

Our guide was very personable and very informative. Learned a lot about the history of "champagne" and so much more. She knew so much about all the cathedrals and historic places. Both champagne distilleries were interesting and Mercier was like visiting a small Disneland! One comment: The restaurant "Le Poste" in Reims had the most fabulous food we had on the whole trip. Would go back every day if we lived in the region.

Chris Pidgeon

This tour ticked all of the boxes for my friend and I.
