Fabulous experience in the Champagne region! Our guide had the none-too-easy task of catering to a group where some spoke French and some spoke English, and she did it effortlessly, making sure that everyone enjoyed their experience and learned lots. Our first stop, a family-run champagne house in Hautvilliers, was a stand-out moment of the day - the staff could not have been friendlier.

Clara and Batist did a great job with the delivery of information and pacing of the tour. We visit two separate Champagne Factories and both were so welcoming and fun. I will do it again. Thank you Clara for your knowledge and able to translate for us when we were not able to communicate.
