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!

We arrived without a booking but were told this was no problem and were quickly signed up to an English speaking tour. Our guide was English and was excellent. Loved hearing about the history of this particular cave. And of course thoroughly enjoyed the tastings!

Very fine tour of the facilities, staff was very informative and answered questions. Caves and environment certainly embraced the old world feel.

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
