Outstanding. Victor was an incredible and fun guide - quickly broke the ice with the other guests on the tour, leading us all to become friendly and relaxed before we even left Paris. Ride to Champagne was filled with history, information and even a quick coffee stop. Great rapport with the champagne houses, we were welcomed and treated great at every stop. Victor has many fun surprises in store, well worth every minute.

The excursion to Champagne was great! We had Victor as our guide. We stopped at 3 champagne wineries and tasted 7 champagnes. A medium size, a large (Moët Chandon), and a small distributor. We were able to taste and enjoy a selection at each. Did a tour of the cellars at Moet which was amazing. Had lunch at a wonderful French restaurant. After the tour was ending, Victor got another bottle of champagne from another distributor and took us to an amazing view of grape vineyards to watch the sunset. Perfect way to end a perfect day!

We were picked up right at our hotel by Victor. There were 4 people total on the tour and we had a good size Mercedes van with plenty of room. Victor was very knowledgeable both on Paris and champagne. He also never rushed us and was kind about stops we wanted to make along the way! Every stop was unique and special. We will always remember this tour!!
