Visited here as we like the champagne and was pleased to find that the visit (which was in English) was very complete and informative. After a slide show you spend a long time (40 mins) in the caves (which are cool so remember to wear a jumper/coat). Seeing the old cellars of the monastery destroyed in the revolution, and even...

A very informative and enjoyable tour of a very nice Champagne house. Might be worth checking/booking in advance as not all tours are in English

We had not booked a tour of a Champagne House on the day we travelled to Reims by train. We were fortunate to arrive when we did, as a tour was starting about 15mins later. The Taittinger cellars are fascinating as they were once the cellars of a Benedictine Abbey and there are some original stone carvings in the limestone... More

This is the only champagne tour that you don't need to book. The tour costs 16.50 Euros and includes one glass of brute. It's informative and the tour guide was very knowledgeable and was American so very easy to understand. I also did the veuve clicquot tour which was 20 Euros, and in my opinion was worth the extra few... More

We visited many champagne houses on our recent visit to the area. The caves in Taittinger were amazing but the 'boutique' for purchasing goodies was very poor. I would recommend going to Veuve Clicquot or Pommery instead.

Love the product but a little disappointed in the tour. If this is a tourist attraction then do something to make it such, if it is a marketing/PR tool then don't! We took the highest priced tour which provided a glass of the regular plus a glass of the Millesme and a glass of the Comtes. My hope was for... More

This tour starts off with a slide show which gives the background behind the company before proceeding down into the caves to learn about how the champagne is made and stored. It was hard not to be overawed by the history surrounding the caves and the thousands of bottles stored there. After climbing the many stairs back up to the... More

We did this as an easy day trip from Paris. Took the TGV bullet train (45 minutes) from Paris and then hopped the #6 bus to a bus stop3 minutes from their offices. The tour guide was really good (a young British fellow) and the tour was amazing. Their caves are stacked with millions of bottles of champagne and the... More

Recently we were in Riems, France and wanted to take one of the champagne tours. We chose Taittinger and it was absolutely fascinating! It was very informative to see how champagne is made, the chalk caves, hear about French history and then taste the champagne. It was extremely well done and enjoyable. This is definitely a MUST if you are... More
