Another "Bucket List" goal achieved. I have wanted to do this tour for years & I was not disappointed. Reims was a suprise - smaller than I had imagined. Clean & well laid out.

Michael Cherry

Worthwild tour to understand and see the champagne making process at two of the best champagne houses. Worth doing the Reims Cathedral tour as well. The gift shops at the houses are also great prices.
