Haven't done any other champagne house tours in Reims so can't compare - however, we enjoyed the Ruinart tour immensely. Kelly was our guide and she was simply lovely and super-informative.

Really!!!!! This was an AMAZING experience- We are in the wine production business in the U.S. for over 30 years and have done easily over 100 tours in France and all the wine regions over that time, and never came across something like this!! This place is tops; the property is amazing, the wines are exceptional, but most of all,... More

If you're wondering if stopping here for the tour is worth the cost wonder no more, reserve a spot immediately. The tour is a bit pricey but the guides are excellent. They do a wonderful job of explaining the history of the house, up to modern day and the process of making champagne. It was scheduled for 2 hours but... More

Ruinart is quite simply put the best champagne house in the world. Not only are their champagne's unparalleled, the tour itself is fantastic. Do yourself a favour and skip the big houses like Mumm and Moet, as they pale in comparison. Our guide Kelly was extremely knowledgeable and the caves were stunning. The tour was very small, only two couples,... More

I think this tour was brilliant and worth all the money - the tour lasted about 2 hours or so. Took sometime (and a few calls) to locate the email ids (as the website was not working). But once the same was located - everything else was a breeze (however slightly scary as they dont have a secure online booking... More

You are made to feel special and our guide/host was Kelly she was brilliant and very passionate about Ruinart. We expected to be there 2 hours it was more or less all afternoon as they want to...

This was hands down the most educational, historically interesting, and enjoyable "tour" we had. Unlike other reviews, I had no problems whatsoever making the booking, paying for it, or receiving a timely confirmation. Our guide, Kelly, was very knowledgeable about the house, the history of the area, the champagne making process, and showed us some amazing areas underneath Ruinart, including... More

We love Ruinart and were glad to be able to get a chance to tour. It ended up being a private tour. Perfect history, process of champagne-making, and a very detailed enjoyable tasting of four of the Ruinart champagnes in an elegant room.

Very easy to book and with confirmation by email, confirmed just before the date as well, security on the gate expecting us, all very smooth logistically. Stunning buildings and the renovations were worth it. Kelly was a very informative guide, dealing fully with a wide array of historical questions about the area and history of champagne generally, not just of... More

The visit to Ruinart is very interesting about how they store the champagne through its various phases of maturing. At the end os the session there is an opportunity to taste vintage and non vintage wine - 2 glasses each. The guide spoke excellent English - sometimes this is not always the case on 'English Speaking' tours My only negative... More
