Loved that we were picked up and dropped off at hotel and that pretty much everything was taken care of for us. We initially talked about taking transportation up on our own, but this was worth it to have a guide and to have everything pre-arranged. We went in December and I'm sure it would have been gorgeous in the spring or summer. I have a new appreciation for wine!

I did not think visiting any champagne houses in the first January would be possible given the time of year, but we visited 3 different houses, including Nicolas Feuillatte, and had so many tastings throughout the day! My friend and I both agreed the lunch was some of the best food we’d had all week, and our guide Karl was amazing! 100% would recommend!

Absolutely fantastic! Our guide Preston was very knowledgeable about champagne and the area. We were able to see and taste a lot of champagne. Book it now you will not regret it!

Our guide Tomas was wonderful, well versed in champagne and very friendly and fun! Our group was very cohesive and we all had a lot of fun

Awesome tour and lunch. Very much worth the money and our guide was extremely knowledgeable.
