This was a once in a life time experience. The pick up and drop off was smooth. If you miss breakfast they stop for breakfast. The first champagne house was very cool we went into caves underground and tasted champagne. We drank a bottle in the vineyards. The lunch was ok the food was different maybe in a not so great way the restaurant was nice looking. When it says you purchase your own drinks they also mean water at this specific restaurant. Last champagne house was great then we went to the Moët and Chandon gift shop. Made it back by 6:30 pm ish but normally it would go to 8:30 pm so you shouldn’t make specific plans for after the tour.

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!

This was an amazing experience. While I went on off season, we still went to 2 different wineries and got to walk around town after an amazing lunch. I met a great group of people and our tour guide/driver Baptist was the reason for the best experience that we all had on this trip.

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.
