We thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Brunelle. She was very chatty and made us all feel welcome. The champagne houses we visited were excellent (a small house and M&C) providing great insight into how this wonderful product is produced. Although this was primarily a champagne tour, Brunelle provided us with great insight into historic landmarks and moments of French history. The day was great, Èpernay was stunning and we were well oiled by the end! Would highly recommend, thanks!

Our guide Jean-Baptistery was very knowledgeable and also very personable. We had a fairly small group of 6 tourists and we able to enjoy all the stops as stated in the description including 4 glasses of champagne. I would highly recommend it.

This was a great tour and worth the money. They really put thought behind organizing it. I loved visiting the small champagne house before going to Moët. Our guide, Anisa, was informative, patient and very friendly!

Driver/ guide very well prepared and customer oriented. Excellent service!!!

Absolutely great. Guide was fun and very knowledgeable.
