The tour was wonderful. The group enjoyed the best that Champagne area had to offer. The trip was off season but the guides were extremely professional and knowledgeable and three tours were given, two in English and one in Spanish. They kept us entertained and informed.
We imbibed at Mumm for the first stop. It was very informative and impressive to see the history of the modernization of the Champagne industry.
Next, we truly enjoyed the tour of the beautiful 800 year-old Reims Cathedral that was the stopping place for lunch. There were several small shops you could purchase Champagne to sample. We brought cheese, bread and Pate en Croute with us and just got some Champagne to drink.
The afternoon at Moet and Chandon was a good look at a more traditional Champagne production and the history entwined with the French Kings and Napoleon. It was a trip with the delicious Champagne of Kings.
This tour was great! To start, the motor coach was comfortable and smooth riding. The views seen from the bus were spectacular. The tour guide who addressed us, English speaking passengers, was clear, concise and knowledgeable. As for the wineries, it was good to see Mumm and Moët and Chandon because of the contrast between the two businesses. Mumm was more "mom and pop" but no less informative and intriguing. Moët and Chandon, being the big corporate company, was amazing too, especially since they also produce Dom Perion champagne as well. Different stories behind each winery, but excellent products and tastings. The wine caves and learning how they produce champagne was very interesting. The cathedral at Reims was beautiful with an extraordinary historical past. I enjoyed walking around Reims on my own and having lunch independently. There are plenty of bistros and cafés to choose a delicious lunch. This trip is well worth the money and I would do it again. The tour was a nice way to break up our week long visit in Paris. The wine caves are cool so bring a jacket.Reviewed by: Julie G, April 2014
A fun trip out of the city!! Champagne was yummy and it was fun to learn about the process.Reviewed by: Jennifer G, April 2014
Was well organised and good tours of 2 champagne houses but both followed same format with intro video and walk through cellars explaining more or less the same thing. Would have been nice to see the actual champagne presses and machines too.Reviewed by: Louisa G, April 2014
The wine tours at Mumm and Moet are very manufactured. You sit in a theater and watch a 5 min commercial. I enjoyed walking in the underground cellar, but would've liked more champagne. The trip was from 8am to 6:30pm. During that time we had 2 glasses of champagne. Weren't given the option of tasting more than one champagne at each place. The tour of the church in Reims was nice. You fend for yourself for lunch. Although the trip was not that expensive ($130 w/coupon) considering that each "tasting" was $30, I don't think the trip was worth it since it took an entire day. Would've rather toured several small wineries w/the actual owners for a more unique experience rather than tour a big place w/30 other people and watch a commercial!Reviewed by: Anyssa A, April 2014
