A must do tour when visiting the region, Ruinart have managed to make the tour professional and intimate with its small plush meeting and tasting room. Cedric our guide was knowledgable and friendly to any questions and didn't make you feel embarrassed to ask anything. It is an expensive tour but when you consider some of the Champagne tasted retails... More

This is a tour you must do. It is so intimate (6 in a group) and in a league of its own, compared to the other larger champagne houses. The staff are very knowledgeable and provide excellent service for the entire 2 hours. At first I wondered what we were going to do for 2 hours, but you won't be... More

A visit to Ruinart is a must for anyone visiting Reims. It has cozy, yet well appointed rooms or tastings, knowledgable and friendly staff and cellars/chalk pits filled with history. Different from the hustle and bustle of some larger champagne houses, Ruinart provides an intimate experience from start to finish. We really appreciated the tasting portion and havign the opportunity... More

Well organised and nice tour of the impressive caves in a more exclusive environment (aligned with the brand image). It is a more exclusive setting, beginning and ending the tour in a small salon. Apart from some special sets, there is no opportunity to actually buy champagne at the venue. The shopping experience for some of the other gadgets was... More

A two hour journey through the chalk pits, breathtaking, expert and entertaining commentary by Cedric, topped off by a tasting of 4 of their champagnes....utter bliss.

Wonderful guide, Cassande, who was very knowledgeable and answered all our questions with interest rather than making us feel it was an obligation on her part. It was one of the pricier visits but ours lasted 2 hours 20 minutes, chockablock with information and good humor. We were 7 in total in the group and everyone thought it the best... More

The Ruinart champagne house is found behind large locked gates. The Ruinart sign which is shiny and mirrored sits on the wall next to the gates. At first look you know this is going to be a special tour. And it was. Just 10 of us. It was very exclusive. Our guide spoke excellent English. After the initial welcome in... More

This tour was pricey but worth it. Extensive cellar tour...the cellars are under the town and very old and very deep. The tasting was spectacular in both the wines and the ambiance. Our guide was a charming young woman. I learned a lot about Champagne.

One brief piece of advice is to ensure your name is on the list for a visit, other wise you will turned away at the gate. The most interesting visit of all the champagne houses. Ruinart is the oldest champagne house in the world founded in 1729. Our guide was fabulous, knowledgeable and welcomed questions. There were four of us... More

I visited Reims in July of 2015. I pre-scheduled this tour at Ruinart out of fear that everything would be booked up. ALL of the champagne cave tours in Reims require advanced reservations except for 1 place (see my other review). This tour was on the expensive side at 70 Euro per person, but for a once in a lifetime... More
