Adrien was a fantastic tour guide & helped to make this a fun & memorable tour. The information he shared with us made it both educational & enjoyable. We really liked the small group & we were able to bond with everyone in the group. The smaller champagne house, Michel Fagot, was super. We really liked the champagne there & enjoyed the caves. Moet & Chandon was also great. There are a lot of stairs to get to & from the caves so it is worth knowing that in case you have mobility issues. I would highly recommend this tour.

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.

Our tour guide was incredible! We loved every moment of our time in Champagne.

It was really good the guide was very helpful and fun
