Epernay Champagne Tour Highlights

Boarding at Gare d'Est, you'll be bound by train for Champagne, where Dom Perignon, father of the house of Moet and Chandon, started it all.

Upon arrival in Reims, you'll join the 8 person van for an English only tour, starting with a drive through along the famed Scenic Champagne Route, taking in the landscape and learning the story of such famed houses as Bollinger, Deutz and Gosset. Your morning finishes with a tour and tasting at the Moet and Chandon cellars.
