Awesome Private Champagne Tour and Unique Veuve Clicquot Tasting

Champagne Tour Overview

Perfect Champagne Tour to experience a Veuve Clicquot tasting, a Grower Champagne Winery and the city of Reims. If you are staying in Paris, take a quick train for a day trip, and meet me at Reims Centre train station (instructions below).

We start off from Reims with a visit at Veuve Clicquot where you hear the story of Madame Clicquot inside 2000 years old roman mines, after which you taste their champagne. Then off to visit the world-famous Cathedral of Reims Notre Dame, and a city tour of Reims, home of Mümm, Taittinger and more.

I’ll suggest good restaurants to have lunch around Reims, where you can pair Champagne and delicious food. After lunch we’ll go to the countryside to see the villages surrounded by vineyards, and visit a small Grower champagne producer, where you’re going to learn how champagne is made and taste 3 glasses of champagne.

Champagne Tour Attractions

Veuve Clicquot Tasting

Cellar Tour and Tasting at Veuve-Clicquot or another famous Champagne House, based on your wishes and availability. The inhouse guide will take you through their historic cellars in the 2000 years old roman chalk pit mines, listed as a Unesco Heritage Site since 2015. At the end of the tour you will taste their Champagne wines, and visit their boutique.

Barbe-Nicole, the Widow Clicquot, became the first successful Businesswoman in the region, after a series of innovations and breakthroughs during the first half of the 1800s. Nowadays this prestigious house is part of LVMH, the largest luxury company in the world.

Cathedral Notre Dame of Reims

Visit of Notre-Dame of Reims with a Certified French National Monument Guide.

This catholic church from the 13th Century is a masterpiece of the Gothic architecture, with thousands of intricate sculptures and marvelous stained-glass windows.

On this site in 496, Clovis the first king of France was baptised by Saint-Remi the bishop of Reims, which led more than 30 Kings of France to be crowned at the same place.

Reims Cathedral Notre Dame

City-Tour of Reims

Sightseeing drive-by of the city of Reims, the largest city in Champagne, with its main squares, Roman ruins, medieval monuments and Champagne Houses.

We’ll see the widest Roman arch in the world, the Louis XV square, the covered market, the Surrender Museum where the Nazis signed and many prestigious Champagne Houses: Roëderer, Krug, Mümm, Veuve-Clicquot, Taittinger, Pommery…

The city was heavily bombed during WW1, which forced the city to rebuild in the 1920s, turning Reims into the Art Déco capital of France.

Roman Arch of Reims called Porte de Mars.
