WONDERFUL!! Worth every bit of money. Loved our tour guide Will, and all the lively stops! We were actually surprised that we enjoyed the small champagne house bottles more than the large commercial Champagne. An amazing day! A word to the wise though, don't be late!! there is about a 5 minute grace period and if you take a taxi to the meeting point, you could be delayed due to traffic. We made it in the van by sheer luck and the fact that people asked to go to the bathroom before the tour started.

Lisa our driver/tour guide made all the difference. she was very good and went extra mile to make the tour much more lively.

The private own champagne house was the best by far. This was a very professional tour and learnt a lot.

Great trip! First time I join tour group but everything better than I expected.

It was really good the guide was very helpful and fun
