What people are saying about Epernay

A fabulous trip - Victor was prompt on pickup with timely updates, fellow passengers were very friendly, the Champagne region lived up to expectations and the Champagne House (am) & Cooperative (pm) were very good contrasts. Lunch was very nice, but a bit too long. A wander down Champagne Avenue would have been the icing on the cake, if we had had a shorter lunch. The champagne drinks at the vineyard at the end of the trip was a very lovely touch - will not forget that experience! Overall, a very good trip!

Loved that we were picked up and dropped off at hotel and that pretty much everything was taken care of for us. We initially talked about taking transportation up on our own, but this was worth it to have a guide and to have everything pre-arranged. We went in December and I'm sure it would have been gorgeous in the spring or summer. I have a new appreciation for wine!

Awesome tour!! Usually we do things ourselves without a tour guide, but we only had one day and there’s no way we would be able to do so much in such a short time. We don’t regret a bit! The day was fun and our guide was super knowledgeable and entertaining!

Our guide Tomas was wonderful, well versed in champagne and very friendly and fun! Our group was very cohesive and we all had a lot of fun

Overall incredible experience would seriously recommend to anyone taking a trip to Champagne.
