Guide was very good and the trip was interesting. Only downside was when we were picked up we were asked if we wanted to have lunch at a restaurant and we said yes. We paid 90 Euros each for this to our guide not to the restaurant. The meal and drinks were fine but we returned to the restaurant today and saw the price of the deal we had had was 60 euros? There were 4 people on the tour and we all overpaid 30 euros which doesn’t seem right considering the trip had cost £191 each. Maybe this should be looked into as in my opinion it’s wrong.

Madam, Thank you for choosing France Intense for your tour to Champagne. I am glad you had a good time with us. The Dom Perignon tasting lunch option we offer is an exclusivity for our customers. It includes a home made meal, including dessert and 3 glasses of champagne: Blanc de Blanc, Rosé and Dom Pérignon, for only 90 €. Thank you again for your positive comment.

In Good Hands with Sebastian
Jalise_B

Our guide Sebastian was super knowledgable and friendly! Other members of the tour cancelled but they kept our reservation which we appreciated. We loved seeing the Notre Dame of Reims. The tours of Tattinger and Moet were wonderful. I will say that the Moet and Tattinger guides covered the champagne process which was repetitive the second time we heard it. But the different histories, especially for Moet, was pretty cool to hear. The champagnes were great and we had enough time for a leisurely lunch. Would definitely recommend this tour!

Dear Jalise, Thank you for your comment, we feel glad that you had a great tour with Sebastien. It is true that all the great houses have great stories to hear ! Looking forward to welcoming you back with us in France ! Best regards, Arthur

Radames Pera was our guide in Reims and he was very knowledgeable and friendly. He also personalized the trip for us which made the day so special and enjoyable!! The scenery was gorgeous and we learned so much from him and the tours at Moet & Chandon and Taittinger! I and a couple of the other people on the tour expressed interest in There were only 6 of us on the tour which was so nice. Radames also pointed out places that we could explore on our own based on our tastes and interests such as gourmet shops and an amazing chocolatier. The entire day was terrific! Thank you!!

Our tour guide Christoffe was wonderful. He was knowledgeable, kind and fun. The tour of Veuve Clicquot and Moët Chandon were amazing, the history of not just the champagne process but of all those who worked for the cellars and lived through the various wars within those cellars was incredible and truly gave a snapshot of life in that beautiful region, the drive through Epernay and the country side felt like we were sailing through a post card. And of course the champagne was fabulous! I wholeheartedly recommend this tour and as a matter of fact, I’m bringing my family with me next time!

Dear Cynthia, Thank you for your feedback ! Glad that you had a great tour with Christophe.

Our trip was extraordinary from start to finish! Our guide, Raphael, was the perfect combination of being a wealth of knowledge with a wonderful personality. The region was beautiful and the tours at Moët and Taittinger did not disappoint The guide at Moët did a fabulous job explaining the process that goes into making a bottle of champagne, and the tastings were delightful! Well worth the journey from Paris!! Thank you Raphael for a great day!

Our guide Rafael was very knowledgeable! My mom and I took a trip to Paris together and decided to do this day trip to see another location. We learned so much about champagne and the history of Reims (starting with very little knowledge). Others with more experience also seemed to learn a lot. We also enjoyed the TGV train getting us there from Paris. I would recommend staying in Reims overnight one night.

Dear Arlene and Tanya, Thank you for your review, it is always a pleasure to know that our clients learn about the region they are visiting, we feel glad to have Raphael in our team. As you said, it is better to stay one night, seeing the cathedral of Reims by night is a must-see. Maybe next time ? Kind Regards, Arthur

Sept/Oct 2021. Excellent tour and guide. When we first arrived my husband and I had some trouble finding the group (our fault). Make sure to read pick up directions carefully and in advance. Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable. He spoke multiple languages (English, Italian, Spanish, Portugués). We had 6 people on our tour which was a great size. Lunch was on our own but the guide gave us a lot of recommendations. We did not get to see Taittinger because it was a World Heritage Holiday and they were unavailable for tours. But the tour company did inform us before hand. Taittinger was replaced with Casanova which was very nice and in town. I enjoyed seeing a smaller more mom and pop place. Great way to see the Champaign region and have a day trip away from Paris.

Dear Corina and Andrew, Thank you for this review. We feel sorry that you didn't visit Taittinger but as you said, it is always nice to see smaller places, the house of Charles de Canzanove offer really great experience and of course great champagne. Can't wait to have you back on tour with us ! Kind regards, Arthur

I was late, but they were very helpful and made sure that I get to the first house properly (They gave me a callback right away). So as not to waste my time, Rafael was very professional and kind - he gave me a tour of the town while others were doing their tour in the first champagne house. Throughout the tour, he made sure that we were comfortable and that we are enjoying the tour. He I very knowledgeable and gave so many insights and stories related to the town and basically all of France. It was such a memorable trip to the Champagne region. Thank you so much!

Our guide Radames was excellent and the tours of Tattinger and Moët & Chandon could not have been better. The small group aspect allowed us to give input and stop to spend some time around the grapevines. Not to be missed!

Rachelle_K

We booked this trip as a last minute decision and didn't really know what to expectm, but we were very happy with everything. Our guide Christoph was very friendly and accomodating, and extremely knowledgable about the area and the Champagne industry. Our train ride to/from Paris to Reims was very easy, as we always find European train travel to be. We were picked up in a large van and taken throught town, and a tour of the local Notre Dame cathedral, which is just beautiful. The tour of Tattinger was probably my favorite part, through the chalk caves and a very interesting description of the process of champagne. The tasting included was basic, but we were able to pay to upgrade to other higher-priced tastings, all very reasonable. Our tour of 8 was added to a larger group, but all very manageable. We drove to Epernay, with a stop at the tomb of Dom Perignon, which was wonderful, and we were able to stop for some very beatiful photos with views of the vineyards. In Epernay we were on our own for lunch or an hour and there are lots of options that are good. We went on to the Avenue of Champagne and stopped at Moet and Chandon for our last tour. It was beautiful and well done, although less personal than the Tattinger in my opinion. It would have been great if we had had some time to walk through Epernay and the other champagne houses, which were beautiful. That would be my only real critque of the day. It might also be nice to visit some smaller family chateaus instead of the very large ones like Tattinger and Moet. But overall, we were extremely happy with the tour. Great value for the price.
