There are so many things to see and do in the beautiful Champagne Region. In addition to the picturesque rolling hills and vineyards, and the Champagne Houses themselves, there is the Notre-Dame de Reims Cathedral (second only to Paris' currently closed one and where most of the Kings of France were coronated since 496 AD). Then there's the even older Port of Mars – where still stands the widest Roman-built archway in the World. These are both recognized as UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
The Champagne Tour is not only perfect for lovers of these fine wines. For throughout the region are also the haunting sites from the Great War (WWI battlefield): Verdun, the Sedan Stronghold, the Walls of Langres, Mount Malgré-Tout and the historic center of Troyes, all yet another historic layer of France worth discovering up close and without hurry, allowing one to take in the deep sense of place. A special tour of these latter key spots in history can also be arranged.
Book your Champagne Tour now to discover the splendid architecture of the cities of Reims and Epernay, cradles of this traditional bubbly beverage. We've prepared amazing Champagne House tours in these two adjacent cities allowing you to combine the experience of visiting enchanting places of historical interest with the indulgent pleasure of discovering the unmistakable tastes of the best champagnes developed here over the centuries.
Champagne wine tours
Take a walk along the charming Avenue de Champagne, perched directly above hundreds of miles of hidden cellars below where millions of bottles of different vintages are stored at constant natural low temperature year-round.

We open the door so you can be taken on label-specific tours of their elaborate cellars, unlocking the secrets of the creation of each bottle of the magical beverage.

Champagne Food tours
Along with the natural landscapes to be found along our tours in this region, it is also worth noting the great gastronomic variety to be found here as well. Its position, almost in the centre of the Old Continent points to the fact that this area is quite rich in authentic Northern European Cuisine. If you are going to travel to this part of France, besides drinking champagne, you would be remiss not to try the delicious sidra (cider) of the pays d'Othe, as well as the tasty white Rethel sausage, the Ardennes ham, the Biscuit Rose de Reims, the Langres cheese and the Troyes tripe sausage (know as “andouillette”).
France Intense tasting lunches
We bring you this kind of lunch experience at the smaller champagne makers’ own kitchens, for a deeper layer of ambiance and authenticity - worth discovering for a more complete understanding and appreciation of the cultural beauty of the Champagne Region, one of the most evocative places in France.
