Cathedral in Reims 

Our first stop on this day trip from Paris to Champagne will be a visit to the city of Reims, known as the capital city of the Champagne region. There, you can explore its main cathedral, Notre Dame de Reims. Feel like a royal as you enter the gothic cathedral in which dozens of French kings have been coronated.

 

Taittinger Champagne House

After exploring this beautiful cathedral, it’s time to visit the first champagne house of the day. At the Taittinger Champagne House, you will learn all about the detailed process of curating champagne. Visit charming wine cellars and see how expert wine producers manufacture such a delicious product. Of course, enjoy the fruits of their labor by trying out some sensational bubbly for yourself.

 

While we do our best to visit the Taittinger Champagne house, sometimes we will substitute this stop for another Champagne house in the area based on availability. No worries though, you'll still have a fantastic sparkling wine tasting experience.

Lunch in Épernay

Onto the next stop, visit the charming town of Epernay. Here, walk the streets lined with dozens of restaurants and storefronts. Stroll down Avenue de Champagne and get a bite to eat before continuing onto the next stops of your Paris day trip.

 

The price of lunch is not included in the cost of this tour.

Abbey of Hautvillers

Often considered the birthplace of Champagne, the Abbey of Hautvillers is a charming village home to the famous Dom Perignon. Explore this Benedictine monastery and see Perignon’s tomb and final resting place.

Local Champagne Vineyard

Your second champagne house of the day will be a smaller, family-owned vineyard. Here, you will be able to compare the two wine cellars and champagne flavors and decide on a favorite. Understand the differences between a household name champagne versus a more locally curated blend from a family-owned brand.

If you have a chance to take a tour use The Tour Guy. They were amazing. I almost didn’t go because my husband was sick but I'm so glad we did. Our guide knew so much and she filled it with humor too. It was a pretty physical tour so be mindful if you have trouble with walking and uneven ground. You will learn so much about champagne and you will see beautiful landscapes along the way!

Simply amazing

Awesome tour. It was organized, clear and detailed, yet still was insightful and intimate. We had a small group, so we really got the chance to get to know one another and the guide. It was great to have the transportation throughout, and the landscapes were unmatched. The tastings were thorough and I learned so much about champagne, so I'll be able to impress at parties now. Thanks!
