Dive Deep into the Bubbly in the Magic Kingdom of Champagne. During your time in Paris we heartily recommend that you spend a day discovering the wonders of the Champagne region — from meeting small family producers to visiting a grand champagne house to learning about the intricacies of creating the most celebrated beverage in the world.
Of course, there will be plenty of tasting along the way. Maybe that's why these are our favorite day trips!
There are some great options for arranging your perfect day in Champagne. From a private tour for just you and your guests, to a small-group tour with no more than eight people, to a tour by luxury coach.
For an in-depth experience choose the Private Varietals Tasting Tour. One of the best private tours starts in the Champagne region, at either Reims or Epernay — The Private Grand Tour of Champagne.
If you're interested in either of these private tours simply use the Inquiry Form to contact our Paris Concierge and he'll take care of everything for you.
Whichever you choose, expect to spend about 10 hours on your exploration of Reims and Epernay if you're starting from Paris on a full-day tour. Your driver will escort you from your hotel and will guide you to all the stops along the way. There's nothing for you to do except relax and enjoy the ride to the magical kingdom of Champagne!
These day trips to Champagne are highly recommended by us. But book early, the dates tend to get filled up. Bonne santé !
Be picked up at your hotel and whisked away to the magic Land of Bubbly.
Drive through rolling hills and vineyards to the capital of Champagne country, Reims. Here you see the famous cathedral where all the French kings were crowned. Next go to Epernay to discover how the grapes are grown, how the wine is made, and taste the most famous product of the region.
After a traditional lunch, visit one of the most famous champagne houses, see the cellars, and taste more bubbly. In fact, taste as much as you want — someone else is doing the driving!
This one focuses on the bubbly, with more time spent in the cellars and sipping and less time sightseeing.
After picking you up at your Paris hotel, your expert guide, a trained sommelier, takes you along the wine route to Champagne and one of the famous producers such as Pommery or Taittinger (two of our favourites). During this full day you'll have lunch, visit three producers and learn all about how champagne is made.
If you want a really in-depth experience of tasting champagne produced by a prestige house and by small family estates, this tour has been created by our Paris Concierge just for you.
The day begins when your driver/guide picks you up at your Paris address and whisks you to the Champagne region to start your tastings. (If you're already going to be in Epernay or Reims you can start the tour there, and save some costs.)
You visit 3 or 4 champagne estates, learn about each of the houses, and taste multiple cuvées (blends).
Our Paris Concierge will customize your day to meet your interests. Visit , Veuve Cliquot, Moet et Chandon, or the legendary Dom Perignon as well as two or three small, family producers. See the amazing chalk cellars used for storing and ageing champagne. Visit historic and cultural sites in Reims or Epernay. All in all, it's a full and exciting day.
On these private ½-day tour, your driver will pick you up in Paris and take you to the lesser-known, western vineyards of Champagne, on the border with the region of Picardie.
(Or, just as with the full-day tour, you can choose to start in Reims or Epernay if you're already in the Champagne region.)
This region is known for its Pinot Meunier grape and there are eight hundred producers making champagne, some of it absolutely brilliant. Since the region is so close to Paris, you can do a lot in this five-hour tour.
You drive along the picturesque roads of this famous region of France as you visit two or three family producers of champagne, tasting cuvées at each house.
These tours are perfect if you want to save some time, but we strongly recommend the full-day Discover Champagne tours.
As we mentioned, if you're going to be in the Champagne region, or if you want to get there yourself on the fast 1-hour TGV high-speed train ride from Paris, then choose one of the tours starting at either Reims or Epernay, the two capitals of champagne.
Your private drive guide will pick you up from your hotel in Champagne or from the train station and start your day of sipping the bubbly.
