          Enjoyable.
          Unfortunately for us we arrived when the renovations were on the go. So we thought it was closed and missed some of the tour driving about trying to find where to park and who to speak to. The staff were very friendly. We missed the introduction and made the chalk cellar tour. Fascinating but not more than a few metres of tunnels to explore. I was hoping for more caves and tunnels. There is a nice light and sound show down there and then you head back to the lounge for a tasting. You get to choose white or rose - vintage and non vintage of your preference. I preferred other houses where you move through to experience all 4 rather than having to choose just 2. But I guess this is the way they do it. Enjoyable. I think my expectations for Ruinnart may have been a little high.

          Elegant & Intimate
          A beautiful, elegant and informative tour. While other tours offer more of a touristy (and busy) spectacle, I rank this one as my favorite because it was more intimate, authentic, and did I mention the elegant? The tour guide truly gave 5 star service and was so helpful even afterwards with getting us to our lunch reservation.

          Interesting tour to know the history of the oldest champagne brand in the world.
          Wonderful tour which will enhance your knowledge about the history of champagne. Ruinart started champagne business in September 1729, making them officially the oldest champagne house in the world. You will see the cellar, understand the business and after the tour you can taste this genios brand.

          Great family day in Reims!
          Stephane was amazing! He worked with our family to create a perfect day in Reims with our family. We had 3 kids and we were able to enjoy some champagne houses with them! He also helped us with train times and the whole process was smooth! Would 100% recommend! Hope to go back someday soon!

          Some fabulous champagne!
          An excellent fun day! House of Moet started the day in style and that was followed by two other houses and tastings and a great lunch in between. Epernay is a very special place! Great day thanks to Stephane organizing the details and maintaining great communications. Yes…a great day!

          A very worthy Champagne experience
          We had such a wonderful time with Stephane. The day was planned perfectly and he coordinated with us in advance to ensure the experience met our desire to visit local champagne producers. We were so lucky to visit during harvest and were able to see the producers in full action. Truly a unique and memorable experience. The lunch cooked by his wife was such a special touch, and visiting with them at their house really added to the day. Don’t hesitate to book with Stephane, you won’t regret it!

          Great for families
          Our tour guide Lisa was very knowledgeable and showed us many great sites within the Champagne region! Biggest factor for going on a private tour was having a child. It allowed us to be able to see the champagne houses with ease while learning as much as possible. The family vineyards we visited were great!! I left the tour with a great appreciation for all the hard work that goes into each bottle of Champagne!

          Champagne in Greece!
          August 2022 we experienced an amazing tour with Stephane. This year we’ve come to Greece and had Stephane ship champagne to greet us here. Even his follow up service is exemplary!

Our guide was very informative and interesting and the cellar was so beautiful to see!! The tasting was 5 star!!! Pommery was a beautiful experience as well! The special lunch at the local french restaurant was such a special experience and appreciate the chef offering a special menu for my dietary restrictions. The food was EXCELLENT!!! We appreciate Stephane and all his attention to detail and answering all my questions in advance and arranging all our tours. The day was the best we had in France!!!

          Stephane is an Amazing Guide!!!!
          Stephane (and Lisa) were absolutely amazing!!! This was our first trip to Champagne and we can't wait to return! Stephane was an amazing guide throughout our 2 day visit with him. Our only regret is that we didn't make it longer. He has a way of sharing his in depth knowledge of the area in an interesting and exciting way. Our visits to each of the vineyards were amazing, especially the smaller houses that he chose. His ongoing communication prior to our visit was outstanding while he was custom planning our tour. He patiently answered every question and was quick to welcome us to Reims once we arrived. Do not hesitate to schedule time with Stephane to see this amazing area! We miss you Stephane!

          Best 3 Days in Champagne Region!
          Stephane developed a customized 3 day tour for us based on what we wanted to experience and explore in the Champagne region. I wanted a well connected expert to guide us through the region and help us learn about family owned small growers; and to learn their process. What Stephane provided was deep expert knowledge and a robust network that enabled him to create unique tasting experiences for us. We tasted Grand Cru and Premiere Cru vintage and non-vintage champagnes that was exceptional and quite reasonably priced! In addition to what we brought back, Stephane was able to ensure 2 additional cases will be shipped to us! Through his stories and introductions to 4th, 5th and even 8th generation family growers, we learned so much about different types of champagnes and how to differentiate among them. He introduced us to a retired (soon to be retired) champagne producer that has been making champagne since the late 1800’s. The highlight was this meeting that led to him taking us to his private cellar where we tasted vintage champagne 2004 and 1993/1994. It was through this tasting that we could really comprehend how champagne ages over time and how the flavors develop. We considered that to be the highlight over the 3 days!! Whether your interests lie in going to the big champagne houses of the brands you know or going out to meet the local producers and taste richly crafted Grand Cru vintage and non vintage champagne - Stephane will create the tailored experience for you!! Highly recommend you plan your trip around his availability to maximize your Champagne experience! Thank you Stephane!!!

        Thank you for your review and your recommendation ! We had such a great time this afternoon in the Champagne vienyards and the cellars with my friend. The tasting of handcraft Champagne was so delicious. Unique experience to live sharing the tasting with the small winemaker with so tasty Champagnes. Cheers !

        This was a wonderful tour! Stephane is a very knowledgeable local of Reims. He taught us about the landscape and drove us through the beautiful vineyards and explained us the history. He took us to the lighthouse for a beautiful view of the Grand Cru village. Then we went to a local winemaker’s cellar and learned the process in depth of how the magical drink is made. Followed by a tasting of 6 different champagnes. Blanc de blanc, brut, blanc de noirs, rosé, and two vintages 2009, 2013). And of course had to buy a few! Highly recommended.

        Thank you for your great review. The Champagne is so beautiful to see and the drink to taste :). The half day is the quickest way to have an overview of the Champagne area, Champagne making and Champagne taste. Come back when you want. There are still few million bottles left. Cheers !

        What an amazing experience, Stephane did an outstanding job! We drove through the beautiful countryside while Stephane educated us on the dynamics of champagne and how it’s produced. The winery he took us to was wonderful as well. We would definitely do this experience again!

        Stephane has a vast knowledge of the Champagne making process as well as the history of Reims and the surrounding areas. His local connections provided a wonderful half day tour and we left with a renewed appreciation for Champagne (and a few delicious bottles). This was the highlight of a month in Europe and I would find a way to book this tour :)

        Great experience!!! One you won’t want to miss when you are in the champagne region of France! Despite the wet weather he showed us the beautiful villages and vineyards in the Champagne region near Reims. He was very knowledgeable and gave us lots of information and insight to the champagne industry. Our visit to a local vineyard was really great and gave us a real appreciation of the process involved in making champagne. Both Stephane and the vigneron displayed their knowledge and passion for the champagne industry. A great experience we would recommend. We had an amazing time with Stephane! This experience really felt unique and personal. We were able to ask lots of questions and have some amazing champagne. Would do this again in a heart beat.
