A Day In Champagne

Pick up and drop off at the hotel


Full day excursion by minibus from Paris to the Reims region, known the world over for the production of a prestigious product that requires no introduction: Champagne. Your excursion will include the opportunity to visit the magnificent Reims Cathedral, site of the coronation of the Kings of France, to learn about wine-making at a small wine-grower's, lunch in Reims, and a tour of the Mumm Champagne house cellars followed by a tasting.

You will be picked-up at your Paris accommodation at 7 am for your minibus trip to Reims. The number of participants is limited to a maximum of eight to allow you to enjoy a personalised excursion with your driver-guide. 

You will discover the mountain of Reims with a stop to take a picture and learn about wine-making in the region.  Enjoy the breath-taking views from almost 790 feet up looking out over the vineyards (including some of the most prestigious vintages) and admire the bell towers of as many as 45 different villages!

Visit a small wine-grower. Depending on the activity taking place during your visit, learn about one of the stages in the production of Champagne (pressing, fermentation, bottling, etc.) before the owner will offer you a sampling of its own Champagne. 

Set off and on the way to Reims, the driver-guide will tell you about the wonderful Notre Dame cathedral, dating from the 13th Century and listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site (guided tour followed by one hour of free time). A Gothic masterpiece and site of the coronations of the Kings of France, it is also famous for its many statues and stained glass windows. Visit the Cathedral on your own. 

A delicious lunch in the town of Reims is the next stop on your itinerary.
