Went a couple of years ago. Warm welcome and a very interesting tour. So much history in those caves, from the Roman times to the present. And the Champagne!!! the best I have tasted and I have tasted a few. It was a trip I will never forget.

We visited 6 champagne houses over 2 days, and Ruinart is my favourite. The highlight for me is the steep climb down to the chalk cellars, the detailed history and information provided by our wine guide (sorry, forgot her name) and the wonderful tour of the cellars. It was amazing to see tool marks left by workmen who worked in... More

Book well ahead of time, you won't be disappointed. Their Champagne is simply divine, the cellars most interesting. Well worth the money!

A very good tour of the oldest Champagne house. Warm friendly and well organized, if a bit expensive.

This is more like being shown around the lovely home of an impressively rich and generous friend than being a tourist. Ok, so it had cost 70 Euro apiece*, but the money had been handled online beforehand and, once you have been warmly greeted and graciously ushered into the comfortable drawing room where the visit starts, you are treated thereafter...

We took the train from Paris to Reims. There is plenty to see. Ruinart is a good hike from the main town center and cathedral. It is worth it. We were treated like royalty. A tour of the 'Caves' was fantastic- many meters below the surface. The actual tasting took place in a large executive-type sitting room. We had the... More

I was ready to spend 35 euros for a tour of the Ruinart Cellars however I happened to be in Reims when free tours were being offered. It was crowded and busy but I found the guides to be super friendly and willing to answer questions. Because my French is limited, I didn't quite get everything that was explained during... More

Excellent private tour and extraordinary tasting. Expensive but worth it. The caves dug in Roman times are magnificent and the champagne was the best we tasted in Reims.
