Following a morning pickup at your Paris hotel, meet your private guide and take a seat in your air-conditioned minivan. Then, relax on route out of the city and into the rolling hills of the Champagne region.
During your 10-hour tour, spin through Reims and Epernay, and admire sweeping views over the famous vineyards. Visit one of the region’s prestigious Champagne houses — perhaps Mumm, Pommery, Ruinart, Taittinger, or Veuve Clicquot — and learn of the grapes’ route from vine to bottle.
Sample some of the fine Champagnes in production (own expense) and listen as your private guide sheds light on the delicate flavors at play in your glass. Time permitting, travel into the countryside and discover traditional Champagne villages such as Hautvillers. Alternatively, perhaps visit Reims Cathedral (own expense) — where many French kings have been crowned.
When your tour comes to an end, return in comfort to your Paris hotel.
