This is like Mecca for champagne snobs. You are obligated to visit at least once. You will not ever forget this wonderful, quaint area with such history! And amazing wines, and cellar tours, and Michelin star rated restaurants aplenty.
We stayed in Rouilly, and the B&B of the Champagne Route. Lovely, reasonably priced, and stumbling distance from one of the aforementioned restaurants. We brought home 10 cases of champagne for my sisters wedding, in checked luggage on United, and paid only $40 in taxes when we went through customs!
You should go ahead and book your tour.
