ORGANIZATION OF CHAMPAGNE TOURS FROM PARIS
France is well-known for its sun, its many vineyards and its tasty Champagne. You will have the privilege to visit its most important Champagne Houses such as Veuve Clicquot, Moet & Chandon and many others... During your visits, you will learn all the secrets of Champagne's process (Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier, Chardonnay grapes) and production (harvesting, alcoholic fermentation, dosage, riddling...). You'll also be capable of distinguishing differences between brut, extra brut and sec Champagne bottles. Last but not least, you'll taste great bottles from great houses or small producers that you won't find in your country.
How will your Champagne tour run through?
Your Champagne day tour from Paris will start with a pick up at your accommodation at 8:00 am in Paris in a private luxury van (personalized pick up and drop off at your hotel or at your private apartment in Paris, like AirBnb for example).
Two hours drive will be necessary to take you to your destination. Your driver guide will give you brief explanations of your day program. Once you'll arrive, your tour in the best Champagne houses and cellars will start.
Our tours have a total duration of 11h maximum and include the visit of two bubbly houses in Reims and/or in Epernay (these are shared tours in the cellars; if you wish a private tour in each cellar please contact us for a quote)
All our tours include private transportation, pick up and drop off in Paris, a driver/licensed tour guide who gives you live comments while driving. To visit the cellars, you have the choice between a shared tour or a private tour given by a local guide working for the Champagne producer, simply let us know which option you prefer. Lunches are not included in our tours, we recommend you to experience either typical bistro type restaurant or finest restaurants in the region.
Some of your tour guides are originally from the Champagne region and lived half of their life there, so they know the region very well and can recommend you about the best choices.
