What people are saying about Reims

I did not think visiting any champagne houses in the first January would be possible given the time of year, but we visited 3 different houses, including Nicolas Feuillatte, and had so many tastings throughout the day! My friend and I both agreed the lunch was some of the best food we’d had all week, and our guide Karl was amazing! 100% would recommend!

Absolutely fantastic! Our guide Preston was very knowledgeable about champagne and the area. We were able to see and taste a lot of champagne. Book it now you will not regret it!

All very well. The guide is very friendly and always on the lookout. The tastings were very good and in general the experience.

Best thing I did in Paris. Worth every penny. Guide was incredible and extremely knowledgeable!
