5/5 (24 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 Mercier, 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 with an audioguide your second Champagne house of the day, Mercier, founded in 1858. You will travel by automated train to a depth of 100 feet to visit the huge cellars, before finishing your tour with a Champagne tasting.

Departure from Epernay is scheduled for 4 p.m., arriving back in Paris at around 6:30 p.m.

This tour was mainly good as transportation to the region. The first tour at Mumm was very cool, but we thought we'd be able to taste more champagne. The second tour felt a bit repetitive as we learned the same information. We had hoped to try more champagne as that is why we wanted to visit the region. The bus was comfortable and it was nice not to have to take the train or drive.
Comfortable coach, informative guide - an enjoyable stress free day. Definitely worth doing
tour guide was lovely and gave a great review of champagne.
Excellent tour. Comfortable coach. Knowledgable guides. Both champagne houses were wonderful and offered different perspectives and experiences. A little more time in Reims would be nice, the 2 hours is just enough for a brief visit of the cathedral and then a lunch stop. Apart from that everything was excellent!
Very good - small group, good info in English by the guide and very a very nice place. Highly recommended.
Excellent tour. Professional and qualified guides.
Very nice, enjoyed everything. We would only wish to have more time in Reims: 2 hours is not enough even just for exploring incredible basilic and lunch.
