Champagne Day Trip From Paris With Lunch and Tastings Description

Your 10-hour tour includes:

  • Up to 7 glasses of Champagne

  • Multi-course lunch of regional specialties

  • Two tastings across two locations

  • Wine Cellar tour

  • Guided visits to celebrated Champagne houses

  • Engaging driver/guide

  • A small group of up to 8 people for an intimate experience

  • Hotel pickup and drop-off in Paris

  • Comfortable travel in an air-conditioned minivan

  • Hit the Road From Paris

Your journey to the Champagne region begins with a seamless hotel pickup in Paris, approximately between 7 and 8 in the morning, so the tour can seamlessly start at 8 AM. Settle into the comfortable air-conditioned van, and after everyone in your group is on board, you’ll embark on a two-hour road trip to the Champagne region.

Along the way, listen as your driver/guide details the history and heritage of the Champagne region. Be sure to have your camera at the ready, too, as undulating vineyards and quaint villages become common sights during the drive. Traverse the iconic Cote des Blancs and Vallée de la Marne, which will only increase your excitement for the day ahead.

Immersive Cellar Tours and Tastings

Arriving in the Champagne region, you'll have the rare opportunity to step into the cellars of one of its most renowned champagne houses—be it Moët & Chandon, Veuve Clicquot, G.H. Mumm, Mercier, or another famous local excellence. The specific house you visit depends on availability, but rest assured; each offers a dive into true champagne royalty.

Then, under the guidance of an expert tour guide, you'll explore the cellars, learn about the production methods and history of the different varieties, and, most importantly, sample champagne. You'll also continue your tasting adventures to a cooperative or a family-owned estate to gain a deeper insight into champagne production.

Savor a 3-Course French Feast

After your morning of discovery and sipping fine champagnes, you'll surely have worked up an appetite–and what better way to satisfy it than with a 3-course French meal at a local restaurant? Dive into a delicious meal that showcases the best of regional specialties, paired with hand-picked champagne that elevates your experience even further. The restaurant, like the Champagne houses you'll visit, is chosen for its quality and charm.

Journey Back to Paris

As your delightful lunch wraps up and the last toast is shared, you'll begin the journey back to Paris. Relax in your comfortable van, reflecting on a day spent diving into Champagne's history, exploring renowned cellars, and sampling both sparkling vintages and regional cuisine. As the countryside turns into bustling city streets, you’ll feel enriched and content, ready for a drop-off at your hotel.

We did our tour on Sep 9 and visited two champagne houses. Thomas, our driver, was patient, kind and helpful. Virginie, our guide, was fantastic! She made sure we had a great time, and worked patiently around a bubbly group of enthusiastic friends. She kept us on schedule without pushing, making sure we experienced and learned what the beautiful region had to offer. She took care of every detail so we could just enjoy, I highly recommend the tour guy and their team. Thank you Virginie, for a wonderful time!

The Tour Guy was not only extremely accommodating with the requests of 6 girls coming from different parts of the world and in addition to this the level of communication and professionalism was class A. Our tour coordinator/guide in Paris (Virginie) was kind, thoughtful and Professional. She helped the Group stay on schedule and the day was totally uneventful. Best way to spent my Bday with amazing friends while sipping champagne in one of the most beautiful sceneries in France. We as a group learned plenty about the process of Champagne making and walked away with valuable tips. Highly appreciated! Liza Ávila
