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.

Having read previous reviews on here, I knew that this wasn't a tour of the processing factory but something a bit more special. We were lucky to have a small tour group and a very helpful and knowledgeable guide. The tour starts with a film about the history of Tattinger and the caves - a lot of information crammed into...

Not inexpensive (I think 16 euros including a glass of champers) as it is a tour of their cellars, not a tour of production or bottling. I knew that that the bottles were stored and turned to concentrate impurities into the neck of the bottle. I knew the necks were frozen and the cork pulled and replaced with only minimal... More

The cellar tour is fascinating -- the cellars themselves date from the 3rd and 4th century and that history itself is worth learning about. The tour was informative about the cellars, the history of the house, and the Champagne production process. The guide spoke perfect English, was professional and answered all questions. This would be a 4-star attraction if one... More

The Taittinger tour was fascinating and very informative. Loved going through the caves - still amazed at how vast they under. Also loved all the fancy artists bottles. Tasted the Grand Cru's - yummy.
