5/5 (32 reviews)
  • Description

Full day excursion from Paris to the city of Reims and its region, known all over the world for the production of a unique and prestigious product that needs no introduction: Champagne. As part of this tour, your guide will show you the majestic 13th-Century Reims Cathedral, where the coronations of the Kings of France once took place. You will also visit Mumm and the Mercier cellars, two famous Champagne houses, where you can taste Champagne and admire the picturesque landscape of the region's vineyards.

Set off from our agency in the center of Paris at 8 a.m. for a memorable day in the Champagne Region to the east of Paris (arrival scheduled for around 10:30 a.m.). 

Begin your excursion with a guided visit of the cellars of the famous Mumm Champagne house, where you will learn about their expertise and the secrets behind the creation of their many Champagnes. At the end of your tour, taste the famous "Red Ribbon" Champagne, one of the most popular Champagnes in the world.

Your excursion continues with a guided tour of Reims's imposing Cathedral, a UNESCO World Heritage site. A Gothic masterpiece and site of the coronations of the Kings of France, it is also well-known for its many statues and extraordinary 13th-Century stained glass windows. 

Spend your free time exploring Reims city center and enjoy lunch in one of the many restaurants in beautiful Erlon Square, for example. Sample the many specialties of the region, such as "white pudding," a type of sausage from Rethel, Chaource and Langres cheeses, and the famous Reims pink biscuits.

The afternoon brings the chance to discover the surrounding countryside and its pretty villages, forests and prestigious Champagne vineyards that stretch as far as the eye can see. On arrival in Epernay, visit your second Champagne house of the day, the Mercier cellar, before finishing your tour with two glasses of Champagne tasting.

    The tour is advertised as to be by bus but we ended up in a minibus, which was disappointing because it was one of the reasons for choosing this company specifically. That should have been mentioned! There were a baby and a 2 year old child in this tour which was not acceptable either. This was a champagne tasting tour! We ended up hearing the cry of the baby during the entire journey for 2 hours! Children should not be accepted for champagne/wine tasting tours! On the positive side, our tour guide and the driver were both professional and experienced. The tour included a visit to Mumm cellars and tasting which was the highlight. Then a visit to Reims cathedral, but could not visit inside because it was Sunday. And finally a visit to a small company Cartier to see its cellars and tasting. We would also like to visit some vineyards to enjoy the scenery and to take pictures. In summary, it was a standard tour, nothing special!

    The second visit (the family company) felt rushed. In both cellars, the tasted champagne were very poor. Not much guidance. The guide did not speak more than half-an-hour in total during the entire tour. In Reims, just info on the cathedral, did not direct to the city center, mention anything else other than the cathedral. Very minimalist, I don't see the added value of the guide.
