We (four adults) did a day trip from Paris to the Champagne region in July 2014. Booking on line was ultra easy and the arrangements worked like clockwork on the day. We were guided through the day by Muriel who is a very well experienced guide with hands-on experience of the champagne industry and French life in general.
The day centred on the city of Reims, 90 minutes from Paris. We did a small roadside stop to better understand the vineyard and vines before stopping at a smaller Champagne house - Cuperly. This is a Grand Cru house that makes several fantastic champagnes at very reasonable prices - €18-25 per bottle.
Lunch at a reasonable Reims restaurant was included in the package. After lunch was a visit to the Reims cathedral which is well worth a look.
The tour ended with a visit to Tattinger wines, quite up market and one of the 4 major champagne houses. The tour of the extensive limestone caves is well worth it.
The best of the whole day was our guide Muriel. She is a credit to her employer and the champagne industry.
