Loved seeing all the caves with large quantities of bottles of great champagne and it was well worth the visit and we had a great tasting and met some really nice people. I bought a box with one bottle of Taittinger and two glasses - it was difficult transporting this and when we got to San Franscisco after travelling all... More

Really interesting visit, full of culture, history and good champagne. Martine offered us a private visit and it was the best! Very professional.

There are a number of great Champagne houses in Reims. Tattinger makes great bubbles, but the tour is hardly worth the effort. I suggest Pommery and Frankel House as better alternatives.

Our tour of Taittinger was conducted by Katrin, a most lovely, elegant, eloquent and capable woman. The tour was outstanding thanks to her, and the tasting is wonderful although it's a bit limited. We did this one followed then by Ruinart (which is much more expensive- but worth every euro) and if we had to pick only one tour it... More

This place was just beautiful, with the history of the brand and of the cellars. The underground tunnels were originally excavated by Romans for chalk stone for their buildings in Reims. Then they were further expanded by the monks who made their wine there already in the middle ages. Later the Taitinger family aquaired the old church ruins to find... More

This is a great cave tour. Taittinger's caves started out as chalk quarries in Roman times, and you can see the results of their excavations from the tool marks in the stone to the holes at the top of the pits where they winched out the blocks. The tours are in small groups which are led by one of the... More

Taittinger tour was very informative not only on the process of champagne making but also on the history of the Taittinger grounds and company. Small groups are taken down to the cellars. Tours offered in various languages during the day. Nice tasting room options. About 16 Euros for one tasting and tour.

My friend and I decided to drive to Reims last minute from Germany hoping to take a few tours. We didn't realize that most Champagne House's require reservations, especially the more famous brands. She heard that the Taittinger cellars were really something to see, so decided to give it a try. First, parking was free and convenient. Second, when we... More

We chose Taittinger because reservations weren't required and a few others were already booked. It turned out to be perfect. We took the TGV from Paris and had time to stroll around the beautiful town center of Reims. We then took a Taxi (plenty available) to Taittinger. We could have walked had we known it was so close. The tour... More

Totally unique and well worth a visit. The cellars are steeped in history and truly amazing, it's so nice to see a Family business priding itself in tradition and values. I will definitely be visiting again.
