We appear to have been very lucky in that the day we booked the ballon was actually flying … I noticed that many of the days leading up to our trip it was cancelled so I had no idea if it would actually happen as we only had the one window of opportunity one morning between other booked tastings . As it happened we arrived at 10.30 am and walked straight in and onto the balloon and it was very quiet and a lovely clear day so we did really enjoy our short flight with a glass of champagne …. It was great for getting our bearings for a short visit to Epernay and ticked and experience off the bucket list .

Having taken multiple tours with various companies to the Champagne region with overseas visitors, I have to say this was tops! Our tour guide Batiste was great… he shared a lot of knowledge and ensured we all had a great time. We visited Mercier and Nicholas Feuillatte, had an awesome lunch and tasted fantastic champagne along the way. Highly suggest this specific tour and that you bring something to wear in the caves as it gets chilly! Prepare yourself for wonderful day in the region!

Very nice and professional guide! Lovely venues and a generous tasting of different styles of champagne. Good value for money!

Fabulous day with a great guide an lovely people to share this great experience. Wonderful lunch and tours. Highly recommend.

Excellent and enjoyable. Our driver and guide Batiste went above and beyond to get us the best experience. Highly recommended
