Wow, this was a great tour with a (paid) tasting at the end. Do pay for an extra glass. Taittinger can do no wrong in my eyes. No need to book either and in English.

We chose this particular champagne tour because of the history of the caves. Originally, the Romans dug them out, followed by extensive expansion under the monks. The staircase the monks used to descend into the caves, in the dark (way before electricity!) were also carved on the ceiling of the stairwell so they could feel their way down in the... More

Out all the champagne houses we visited including Pommery, Moet, Mumm and Mercier, Tattinger have the most impressive caves. The tour itself is very similar to other houses, we didn't book and just turned up and arrived just in time for an english tour to start. Think we paid €16.50 each for the 1 glass of standard champagne tour.

Out of all the caves to visit, we stumbled into Taittinger for the tour and tasting. The caves are spectacular. Parts dug out by the romans, and other parts surviving from the ancient monastery including some ruins on the monastery that survive. The tour itself was great. The guide very knowledgeable about the history of the caves, the history of... More

We have had different tours of Reims Champagne houses. Taittinger stands out. Very impressive cellars and very important: a guide that speaks impeccable English and that takes the time to answer your questions. Concluded with a tasting. We like Taittinger very much, but if course, everybody will have their own preferences.

If you only have time to visit a couple of Champagne houses then this should be one of them (Pommery is another)!. The Taittinger tour is excellent in terms of the professionalism and knowledge of the guides and the information that is provided. I was astounded by the vast caves and the capacity of these underground caves. I loved the... More

We arrived with no reservation but were able to book on to a tour without having to wait. The tour was great and the guide friendly and informative - we learned a lot about the history of Taittinger and their production methods. Tasting was delicious!

An hour long tour of the cellars with informed guide gives an overview of champagne production and its history. Atmospheric (and a bit chilly!) in the cellars with a glass (or, optionally, three) of the excellent end product to finish.

Our guide and tour were great. This was our first champagne tour we did in Reims so it was all new to us and we appreciated all the rich history. We signed up to try all three champagne at the end and were the only ones that did. It seems on tours it is more typical to so just the... More

We visited Taittinger and the tour was terrific. The caves are amazing and it's really interesting hearing the history of the vineyards/caves etc. our guide was funny, relaxed and informative. Our two boys loved the adventure of the underground tunnels and we, of course, loved the tasting at the end! Highly recommended!
