After having just read the previous review about someone's experience with Chris I would like to let you know that we could not have had a better guide than Eric. We were collected on time and looked after so well throughout the whole day. Eric has AMAZING knowledge of everything Champagne and this shone through in everything he did. He... More

We have just returned from a weekend in Reims where 4 of us spent Saturday on a full day tour with Chris as our guide. We independently arranged a tour at one of the larger Champagne houses on the Friday so were looking for something more authentic and different for our Saturday. Having booked ages ago we couldn't have known... More

We read a review of this tour company in the Sydney Morning Herald and just had to take a day trip from Paris to Reims to experience it ourselves! We were met at Champagne-Ardenne station, after a 40 minute journey on the TGV, by Katarina (Katya) the owner of the tour company. We were whisked away in a spotlessly clean... More

Our tour guide Chris had a serious illness and spent a lot of time on the mobile phone discussing this with medical advisors/friends. He was clearly unwell and should not have conducted the tour. He dropped us at the station 50 minutes before the train was due to leave. He drank all the champagne offered although denies this, but none... More

I would like to point out that this tour was not a La Vigne du Roy tour, but a tour booked through and conducted on behalf of a travel agency which we had no control over price or itinerary. We have worked with them for over five years doing over 50 tours a year for them and this is the... More

This tour was truly a day to remember. Our guide was Eric, who was so informative and passionate about Champagne (both place and drink). His enthusiasm was infectious and my husband and I learned so much, from how they plant and prune the vines in the beautiful hillside vineyards, to how to pair the perfect champagne with the right dish....

Our family had a delightful day in the Champagne/Epernay region with Eric. Not only did we get to taste some wonderful champagne, but we learned so much about the process that makes it, from the cutting of the grapes to the bottling. We had lunch at one of the smaller Champagne houses and it was delicious; meeting the owner made... More
