5/5 (39 reviews)
  • Description

Full day excursion 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 Nicolas Feuillate 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 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 6:45 p.m.

The places we stopped were great and had interesting tours, but the ParisCityVision guides left something to be desired. Turns out this was an English, Spanish, AND Japanese tour which was not obvious when I booked. Two languages would have been fine but 3 was too many, especially considering there was only one Japanese woman. So on the drive to the first stop they gave us some history but had to do it in 3 languages which took a while. And I don’t feel like they spent enough time giving history or information along the drive- probably because there would be too much to translate! At Mumm, the tour guide there was great, but one of the ParisCityVision guides hung back behind the group with the Japanese woman to personally translate for her- but instead of staying back far enough or whispering to not be disruptive to the larger group, they just spoke at a normal level which made it difficult to hear the Mumm tour guide. This occurred for the whole tour and was very distracting and disruptive. Then in Reims you kind of had to make a choice between touring the cathedral or having lunch. We tried to both and ended up having to get our food to go and barely made it back to the bus. They need to find a better way to balance seeing the cathedral (which was gorgeous!) and feeding people.
5/5
The tour was fantastic. We had two tour guides who were very knowledgeable and engaging with the group. Our guides at both champagne houses were also very knowledgeable and it was very interesting to learn how champagne is made and the technique differences between different champagne houses.
5/5
Our tour guide was very friendly and helpful. She spoke English very well and she even waited for us since we were still in line buying our champange. Lunch by the Reims cathedral was great, we got to walk around the town and there are a lot of restaurants and cafes in the area.
