The BEST vineyard tour ever. I have toured the wine country of Napa and Sonoma, both beautiful, but this tour was so unique and special to France. We had more than enough champagne for the day, and we truly became champagne experts with the education each vineyard gave us. I loved our lunch session in the beautiful courtyard where we had a taste of authentic French food and of course, more champagne. Our tour guide was AMAZING. Henry was SO accommodating and knowledgable about champagne/ wine making. He went out of his way to grab my friend and I a croissant when we first arrived in Reims because we did not get a chance to eat before the tour. I appreciated how engaging he was with the group, but also helpful in answering any of our questions. He gave me an experience of a lifetime as it was my first time visiting France. I HIGHLY recommend this tour and Henry as a tour guide if you're able to get him! The tour was so thoughtfully planned and it was a seamless experience from traveling to Reims via Paris. If you are staying in Paris, this was a fantastic day trip to the countryside. I would do it again. Worth every penny!! Thank you, Henry!!!

My wife and I had a spectacular time ! our guide Loralei hope I spelled that correct was wonderful, she was very knowledgeable, knew the region had great information on the particular laws and guidelines of how things operate right down to the basics of making wine. This company has cultivated the proper relationships with their partners so wherever we went things went smoothly. There was plenty of champagne poured as well. I would say the best part of the tour was when we got down to the local producers and lunch. This part of the tour felt more personal. I would give the highest recommendation to this team and tour. Enjoy!

Absolutely wonderful tour that included a few excellent small champagne makers. We had several tastings and ended up purchasing several bottles for our collection. Great trip, we will do it again!

is there a rating of 10 stars? because there should be! The guides were gracious, knowledgeable and very friendly. The tour was everything I imagined and more. From a major Champagne house to a small vineyard to Vinescapes own patio, it was fantastic! I'm seriously blown away on how fun it was.

This was a great tour. The local tour operator was great and for the morning I had my own private guide and tour. Anna was my guide and she was great! The visit to Moet-Chandon was terrific with an ample tasting at the end. Lunch was in the local tour company's B and B and was delightful. In the afternoon 6 more people joined and that made it more challenging. I might not do the full day tour again, but would not want to miss the lunch.
