This was a great day. Ticked the boxes on all levels. The people on the tour were great. The tour guide was great and each place we went we felt welcomed. Enjoyed every part of this tour and would recommend it.

Me, my mum and sister came here for my sisters 30th birthday, and we all absolutely loved every minute of it. Our tour guide was fabulous, knew everything and was really informative. The lunch and tastings at the independent champagne house was actually our favourite bit and we loved how the owner came and stayed with us for a bit during lunch. 10/10 would definitely do it again! Thank you x

Our guide Chloè was knowledgeable as well as fun, making the day on the countryside a can't miss when visiting Paris. The hotel pickup was incredibly convenient and the air conditioned van hit the spot on a hot day. The group sizes can fill up to 8 people max, but we were lucky enough to have only 4 total people (2 couples) which made for a amazing private tour atmosphere. Stopping at one major corporate champagne house and two family run houses as well as sharing a bottle atop of Dom Perignon church left us with more champagne than we thought we would receive. If your in France and can splurge, by far the best experience we have had and couldn't recommend enough.

Our guide picked us up at our hotel on time and after picking up the 6 others in our group, stopped at a market for fresh croissants. Delicious! The scenery on the 1.5 hr. drive to the Champagne region was beautiful. We heard a lot about the history of the region and the tight regulation on the growing of the grapes and production of the wine. We visited 3 producers, one large (Moet Chandone) and 2 smaller. Each was unique and we tasted a lot of Champagne. We also had a great lunch at the middle winery. Our guide also stopped at a great spot overlooking the valley where he produced some cheese, crackers, and yes some Champagne. A great day. My only negative comment regards La Vacanza Travel's policy of dropping you all off at a central location following the tour. We have done La Vacanza Travel tours in the past and have been dropped off in some very inconvienent spots. This time we were supposed to be dropped at a pre-announced spot in Central Paris where we could catch the Metro. However, a street was closed so we were dropped in an unfamiliar area and instructed to hail a cab. We did, and arrived back at our hotel 90 minutes later with a fare of 55 euros.
