Guided Tour of the Reims Champagne Region from Paris

4/5 (21 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.

There were 4 groups on our bus so everything announced was said in 4 different languages which was kind of annoying. But other than that the tour was informative and allowed us to see a good part of Reims and Epernay. It was nice to see local Champagne houses instead of the big international ones.
4/5
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.
3/5
For $200 per person I expected more than 2 small samples of champagne and no offer to try anything other in the range. Would have been interested in purchasing if it was more of a cellar door experience

4/5
Excellent tour. It gives you a total view of the region, their wineries and the caves! The tour guide at mumm ( laura) was amazing. She explained all about the process of champaigne making and answered all our questions. At Mercier caves it was not as informative as it was more impersonal and Disneyland like but it was also important to appreciate the 2 visions. Driver was fantastc and the tour guide in spanish was also very helpful. The other lady Pascal was not engaging and friendly at all, even though I spke fluent english.
