We spent an absolutely brilliant day with Emma touring the vineyards and family champagne houses, easily the best way to explore this area. Emma was knowledgeable, super friendly, patient (we asked a lot of questions!) and explained the champagne making process and history of the region perfectly. We visited a couple of small family houses for tastings which was a great contrast to the other visits we made to the big houses. Highly highly recommended.

We had an amazing day with Nina touring vineyards, unique local Champagne houses and going to a great bistro for lunch. Nina is a very knowledgeable and fun tour guide who created an interesting itinerary for us. We had booked and rebooked this tour throughout Covid and Isabelle was always accommodating and friendly. We would highly recommend this tour and look forward to coming again (hopefully soon😎🍾)
