This was my first tour of a champagne cellar. Is was amazing to learn this history of both the champagne region as well as fine Taittinger champagne. I highly recommend this for anyone interested. We even got an elevator ride back up from the cellar, instead of walking back. Our guide was great and easily answered questions.

A well scripted tour of the Taittinger champagne caves, worth it to see the history of Taittenger and the caves themselves, seeing the caves started by the Romans, extended by monks and still used as for making champagne. This is still an active champagne cave for producing the Comtes de Champagne vintages. Keep an eye out for the various carvings... More

It's not a big commercial type of wine cellar tour. It is nice and personal walking through the caves where you can wonder off wherever you like. Everything is explained very well, and I would definitely return. The champagne itself is very tasty, a little bit different to the normal run of the mill, and certainly appealed to my taste

My wife and I took an early train ride from Paris to Reims for a scheduled tour of the Taittinger Caves. If you love champagne this is one of the founding names in the region so it is worth the time to explore these chalk caves. Once we exited the train station there are taxis to the left that will...

While in Paris, take a day tour to Reims. Your can go on your own by train (about 2 hrs total traveling time). Once you arrive at the train station, take a taxi to one of the wineries (short ride) about 10 Euros the ride. At Taittinger a guide will take you into a room to watch a short documentary... More

Was recommended the taittinger tour by the local tourist information centre, as they said you could just turn up for the tour as opposed to a lot of the other champagne houses where you have to pre book. Did the 2pm tour, only 5 people on the tour, guide Megan was very informative, passionate about the brand and obviously knew... More

My husband and I loved the Taittinger cave tour. Our guide was informative, warm and funny. We had a small tour group (only five of us in total) so we were comfortable to ask questions. It is amazing the effort that goes into making champagne. I will never again complain about how expensive champagne is! We also did the Veuve... More

We loved our tour here. Though a bigger house, the tour was excellent. The tour guide was a summer intern from California. It was very informative as to how they made champagne, and the flute of champage at the end was delicious. Highly recommended.
