The tour started with a short video of Taittinger's history. After that we took several stairs to the cellars (an elevator available) and followed the guided tour. The guide was professional and pleasant. After the tour we had a tasting of two different Champagnes. Taittinger is not my favourite Champagne, but the visit was intresting and nice. Such a big...

The tour of the Taittinger cellars is very interesting taking in the family history as you walk through the miles of cellars gazing at the millions of bottles, as one of the oldest champagne houses the original tunnels used by the Monks are still visible which adds the to mystery. The guided tour is in English and very informative, beware... More

We visited on our journey home deciding to leave 'best' til last. One of our party is in the wedding trade and they use this brand so she was very interested to go on the tour and taste some different cuvees. No appointment necessary and open all day was a bonus, also the price was reasonable, we decided to two... More

We visited here this week as a group of six . Maud , our guide was fantastic . The tour was very interesting and informative . The more expensive option is well worth the money as it includes tasting 3 of Taittingers Champagnes . Would definitely recommend to couples, business colleagues , groups of friends and families with teenage kids... More

Actually a pretty easy drive from Paris. The cathedral was an amazing first stop and then on to try Champagne. The tour lasts about an hour. Most of the time spent in caves but not claustrophobic, more like a warehouse. Overall it was interesting to learn about the process and see the bottles stacked everywhere. great sampling room.

Very informative. The caves were stunning. So much history to be found. Tour was perfect amount of time and number of people. Didn't feel herded. Tasting could have been better organized but it was a great experience.

We spent four days in the Champagne region and went to Taittinger during our day in Reims. Because of its connection to one of our favorite California sparkling wines, Taittinger became our one "big house" tour during our trip. It was easy from start to finish. We didn't have reservations, but were immediately assigned to an English tour with hardly... More

Loved the caves remaining from the abbey that was destroyed during the French Revolution!worth visiting it. I loved the guided tour even if I would have loved a bit more space for questions.

We had a great tour guide and the whole experience was just the way I liked it. She gave us a lot of information without the story getting to long or boring. I especially liked who she managed to give us the feeling we had all the time in the world to look around without making people wait. The caves... More

We decided on a last minute trip to Reims without checking which caves were open, but were pleasantly surprised to find that Taittinger was operating AND within walking distance of down town. We arrived a little early but walked around the grounds until it was time for the tour. The tour itself was very informative, mixing in history of the... More
