Take a scenic drive through the vineyards and along Epernay’s famous ‘Avenue du Champagne,’ where you can see the houses of Moët et Chandon, Perrier Jouet, Pol Roger, and others and hear what sets these prestigious brands apart from other winemakers.

Follow the journey of the grape from vine to bottle on a walk through the vineyards of either Moët et Chandon or Billecart-Salmon, and learn even more about the complex Champagne-making process with a tasting class at a restored Champagne house.

Continue on through the region’s fertile, rolling hillsides to reach a boutique family winery, where you’ll get a behind-the-scenes look at operations on a guided tour of the facilities including the grape press, vat room, and aging cellars.

Excellent introduction to Champagne

This tour is an excellent introduction to Champagne - both to the area, the drink itself, and how it is produced. Our guide, Martin, was friendly, knowledgeable and funny, and quickly managed to bring our small group together in a way where everybody felt included. In addition: a wonderful lunch and plenty of champagne. Highly recommended!

Pleasant Day in Epernay

I'm not a fan of bus tours but this was a good option for travelers to see the Champagne region. Our guide Jerome was charming and knowledgeable. The vineyard visit was nice but was more of a stop and enjoy the view rather than a walk. It also would have been nice to actually get out of the bus and walk down the Avenue du Champagne rather than a quick drive past. The tasting class was a bit of fun but was really just a self guided aroma and winemaking steps test. We tasted some nice champagnes but there was little in the way of actual explanation of what we were seeing, smelling, tasting except for the variety of grapes used (which is on the bottle anyway). I guess I was expecting more of a "class". Lunch was adequate - nice cheeses, salad and cold meat. Plenty of champagne and red wine to wash it down. The afternoon small family run winery tour was the highlight of the day - with further tasting in a great setting.

Amazing tour of the Champagne region!

We had an absolute great time on this tour. Our tour guide was really great, very knowledgeable. I learned a lot about the champagne making process, history of champagne and how to detect different flavors. There was ample champagne drinking at both locations we stopped at (probably 9 or 10 samples).

There were 8 people in our group. Martin, our guide, was super great. Plenty of champagne to drink. All very good. We met wonderful owners of the champagne houses. Countryside was beautiful. My only complaint was I wish we could have been outdoors more on such a beautiful day. Perhaps lunch outside.

This Champagne tour and tasting was the highlight of our visit to France. Our tour guide, Martin, was charming, grew up in the region and enjoyed sharing his knowledge about Champagne. The Tasting 101 lesson was fun, interesting, informative and delicious. The Champagne paired lunch was superb and served in a warm, cozy setting. The private tour of a small Champagne producer was extra special and personal versus commercial. We highly recommend this tour to anyone who loves Champagne!

Drinking Champagne in Champagne! This tour was so much better than the trendy Vueve Cliqot and Moet tours. I enjoyed so much getting to freely sample the champagne from smaller champagne houses and visit the caves. I even brought back a few bottles that I could never get in the states. This tour was one of the best tours I've ever done! A wonderful and unique tour with just 7 of us. I felt special, unlike most of the touristy champagne venues.
