  • Free hotel pickup and drop-off included
  • Informative, friendly and professional guide

Following a morning pickup by air-conditioned minivan from your hotel in Paris, meet your guide and begin your 2-hour journey to Reims. Widely considered the jewel in the crown of the Champagne region, Reims is home to grand boulevards, pre-Roman heritage and, of course, many fine Champagne houses.

On arrival in the city, begin your tour with a visit to Reims Cathedral. Marvel at its Gothic façade and striking stained-glass windows, listen as your guide talks of the many French kings and queens who were crowned here, then head inside to explore its magnificent interior.

Continue on into the rolling, vine-covered hills of the Champagne region to the village of Epernay, nestled deep in the countryside. Visit a traditional vine-grower and — depending on the season — watch the grapes being pressed or the Champagne blended. Sample the finished product for yourself and gain insight into the complex flavors at play in your glass.

After a lunch of regional cuisine at a traditional restaurant in the center of Epernay, head to the world-famous Champagne house of G.H. Mumm. Founded in 1827 by three German winemakers, Mumm is today widely considered the most recognizable Champagne brand in the world.

Listen as an expert winemaker shares insights into the production of Champagne, then visit the cellars to learn the distinctive methods for aging the wine. Enjoy a second tasting session, then hop back into your vehicle for the return journey to your hotel in Paris, where your tour will come to an end.
