Celebrate your arrival in France on this private round-trip Paris day trip to Champagne. Take in the region's rolling hills of productive vineyards and visit two of the area's major cities. See the Reims Cathedral, and taste bubbly at two different Champagne houses. Plus, pay homage to Dom Pérignon at the Abbey of Hautvillers. This full-day tour includes:

  • - Round-trip, private luxury transportation from Paris

  • - Tastings at two Champagne houses

  • - Free time in Épernay for lunch

  • - A visit to the famous Cathedral in Reims

Cathedral in Reims Tour

Before we get some bubbles in you, visit the Reims Cathedral in the capital city of the Champagne region. The site of dozens of coronations, the Notre Dame de Reims has even witnessed a crowning in 1429 that Joan of Arc attended. Take some time to enjoy the phenomenal architecture and learn about the important role it played in the history of the French royals. Regarded as one of the greatest examples of Gothic architecture in Europe, the interior features stained glass that ranges from the 13th to the 20th century.

Famous Taittinger Champagne

After exploring the Reims cathedral, it's time for the main attraction of this private Paris day trip. One of the most well-known names in the region, Taittinger Champagne is a heavy-hitter in the production of sparkling wine. Enjoy a tour of the Champagne cellars to learn more about how the wine is produced from 288 hectares of vineyards. Then, enjoy some of the finest Taittinger Champagne.

 

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

Lunch in Épernay

After your tasting at Taittinger, visit the charming French town of Épernay. The historical market center of the Champagne region, check out some of the boutique wine shops and enjoy some free time to eat lunch. Champagne connoisseurs from all over the world consider Épernay one of the best destinations, with over 300 Champagne crus to savor. Plus, Épernay also features beautiful architecture and gardens.

 

Lunch is not included in the price of this tour, but we are happy to suggest a place to go - just ask!

Abbey of Hautvillers in Reims

The Abbaye Saint-Pierre d’Hautvillers is also in Reims. This is where Champagne connoisseurs travel to pay their respects to the monk Dom Pérignon. A pioneer in the Champagne industry, the Benedictine monk paved the way to perfect the Champagne-making process. While Dom Pérignon did not invent Champagne, he made significant contributions to it.

Local Champagne Vineyard

Visit a small, family-owned Champagne house, then compare the Champagne tasting experience with that of Taittinger. See for yourself what makes a small family-owned house different from a large, world-famous one. Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonay are the main grapes used in almost all types of official French Champagne. Each Champagne house creates their product with different combinations of grapes.

Finally, after you've come, seen and tasted, it's time to return to Paris. Climb aboard your comfortable private transportation with a flush in your cheek and enjoy the scenic journey back to your accommodations in Paris.

Our driver, tour guide did not speak much English and could not educate us about the sites, scenery along the beautiful drive to our first winery in Champagne. He did guide us to a great place for lunch. We went to 2 wineries, the first was fabulous and gave the 3 of us a private tour when the other large group was late. The second was also a newer winery, but not very sophisticated, only used one grape and we left early. Would have been much better had we gone to an older, different winery to get a better experience of the region.

Great time! Love the bubbly Champagne!

Wow it was so beautiful! We had a great time exploring the area, and with a private van it felt so luxurious! The lunch was so good with the Champagne they make right there, so cool!
