Tour and Champagne tasting at Taittinger* (Visit included: L’Instant Premier with one glass of Champagne)

Taittinger is one of the last Grandes Maisons de Champagne to be independant and owned by the grandson of the founder, Pierre Taittinger. Taittinger's style is characterised by a high proportion of Chardonnay, synonymous with finesse and elegance in the Champagne region.

Taittinger vineyards cover 288 hectares which include some of the appellation's finest. This Grande Maison's treasure is not only the millions of bottles in the cellars but the remains from the old benedictine abbey of St Nicaise dating back to the 13th century and the old Romain chalk quarries dating from the 4th century listed as a Unesco world heritage site. The tour is followed by a tasting of one glass of Brut Réserve.

And there is the possibility for you to try other kinds of Champagnes. You just have to pay for the extra tastings directly on our website or at the end of the tour.

Great If You Don't Have Time To Do Your Own Planning Or Don't Speak French

I was in Germany on business and suddenly had a free weekend to go where I wanted. Where else to go but Champagne?

The problem was that I had not done any planning. And someone with a plan is fairly important so that you don't waste precious time on things that turn out.

Based on the excellent reviews on tripadvisor.com, I booked this tour and it was money well spent.

Amanda was very knowledgeable and spoke excellent English. The 5 other members of the tour group were great to be around.

More importantly, I didn't have to worry about reservations, buying tickets, parking!, not being understood by the locals, etc.

I hope to use France Bubbles again when my wife and I return to France next year.

Perfect day trip

Loved every part of this tour, from the guides knowledge, to the beautiful villages and thorough champagne house tours. The van was very comfortable and the lunch spot our guide recommended was delicious! I would recommend this tour and company to anyone who asks!
