Champagne Region Tours

Raise a glass during your Champagne region tour and propose a toast to what is arguably the world's most important fruit: Grapes! The region is known for its highly protected sparkling white wine. You'll also discover a number of different attractions while cruising the hillsides in search of that perfect glass of bubbly. Why not take a Reims Guided Tour, Champagne Tastings, which provides free transfers to and from your Paris hotel? Or, cruise the Route du Champagne during a VIP Private Tour with Wine Tastings and Cellar Visits? It's what to do in Paris if you would prefer to avoid large, public Champagne tours. Finally, there's the ever-popular Champagne Region & Reims Including Cellar Tours and Tastings. As one of the most highly rated tours, booking it just might be the smartest thing to do in Paris!

Our tips for Reims Champagne

  • The G.O.A.T. If you want to pay your respects to the man who made the Champagne region a household name, then book a Hautvillers trip during your Champagne vacation and visit the final resting place of Dom Perignon.
  • Support Local Businesses. You’ll probably want to hit one or two of the biggest wineries during your Champagne trip. But, don’t skip the independent wineries, which provide a very intimate Champagne experience.
  •  You Pour Thing! When pouring champagne, the main point is to preserve as many bubbles as possible. Tilt the glass and let the champagne slide against the side to avoid a full head of mousse.

Best time to visit

The best time to visit the Champagne region is between May and early September. Not only will you encounter the best possible weather during this time, but you'll also have the undivided attention of local staff. And, if you plan on enjoying a Champagne wine tasting experience, then that's a very important factor. In terms of tourist footfall, the months of June, July, and August draw the most visitors; so, you should consider booking your Champagne tour in advance because availability is limited. Late September should be avoided, if possible. At this time, harvest is in full swing and most of the wineries available hands are out in the vineyard. So, you simply will not get the service you might expect at other times during the year. Finally, do not book your trip for winter because almost all the wineries are closed. 

Getting there

If you book a Champagne region tour from Paris, generally you’ll enjoy free transportation to and from the destination. If you would prefer a seamless experience, go in for a guided one. Those individuals who do not book an all-inclusive Champagne day trip will still have a variety of transportation options at their disposal. The fastest and easiest way to get there is by train. It costs about $20 to go from Gare de l'Est to Reims and the trip lasts for about 45 minutes. Once in Reims, you can get around town and visit the region’s famous wineries by using the Citura busses, which cost about $2 per trip. Drivers should be aware that, while cars will give you added flexibility, it will take you more than twice as long to get there than it would by train. Still driving to Champagne remains one of the most popular things to do in Paris!

Money saving tips

Short on cash? That’s okay! Although champagne prices in Paris resemble those in most of the west, you can find great deals on bottles of champagne when you’re actually in the region. Just hit up the small, independent champagne houses, which will appreciate your business far more.
