We toured the Nicholas Feuillette and Mercier Wineries. The Feuillette was especially interesting because we toured where the champagne is made from the grape juice and how it is bottled. The facility is very modern. The guide was excellent, very knowledgeable about producing champagne as well as the history. He was also very generous with the tasting at the end.

This was a great day trip. Our tour guide Emeline was fantastic - very knowledgable and personable. Easy to spend the entire day with! The other people on our tour were great, we happened to all be from the US so it was a nice way to meet other travelers. We went to one large champagne house, a medium & a small. We had a delicious homemade lunch in the middle

Highly rate this tour! Raphael our guide was amazing and super knowledgeable and easy going. The stops all added something different without being overwhelming. The lunch was delicious and we loved trying all the different types of Champagne. We would do this again!

Victor was an incredible host and my favorite part of my vacation. He was very accommodating and nice. The winery tours were great selections. We purchased bottles at each stop. The views were breathtaking. We would do this tour again.

Our guide was great! He bought morning pastries for us and provided lots of insights of champagne making as well as the champagne industry throughout the day trip. Highly recommend!
