Our tour guide picked us up right at our AirBnB! He drove us out to Champagne while giving us an education of the region. Then, lunch was extremely authentic and an immersive experience we didn’t expect. Our wine tastings/visits were all educational and gave us an understanding of the region. Highly recommend for all traveling to Paris and wanting to get out of the city for a day!

Lionel was amazing and all three houses were fantastic. The only disappointment was we did not get to saber a bottle of champagne as described in the tour description.

Our guide, Joel, was fantastic! He facilitated good conversation with the whole group, was knowledgeable about Paris and had a kind demeanor.

We had an incredible day with Thomas, who is a friendly and very knowledgeable Champagne and regional expert. Highly recommend!

It was more than we could have ever expected. Everything was perfect.
